Privacy Policy

Some browsers may be concerned about how this site treats their privacy. The principles and policies below respond to these concerns:

  1. Browsers should understand that every single transaction over the World Wide Web involves an exchange of information. What happens when you ask for a web page, any web page? Your computer's browser (Netscape, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.) sends notice to the remote server you are contacting about (1) the server it is using (its IP address) and (2) the type of browser which is making the contact including the version number, system (PC or Mac), ability to use Java or Javascript, and a few other obscure pieces of data. In a sense, every use of the WWW always communicates some information and no use of the WWW is utterly private.
      
  2. This site gathers usage statistics for many pages on the teachpsych.org server. We do this in order to get a better sense of how we are serving teachers of psychology and to identify areas of particular interest by browsers.
      
  3. The site analyzer software uses "cookies" to keep track of individual users who return to the site for renewed visits. A "cookie" is a small file which is put into the "cookie" folder of your browser. It usually contains both an identification number and an expiration date. It can be accessed only by the Internet site which placed it there. The identification number allows our site analyzer to recognize that your computer has accessed this site previously. It gives us summary statistics of total versus unique visitors to our pages. However, the site analyzer cannot learn anything else about your computer and its contents. Cookies are widely used by almost all commercial and other service organizations on the Net (e.g., the New York Times and the American Psychological Association use "cookies" to recognize returning registered users.). You may choose to reject a "cookie" and the Preferences menu of your browser permits you to reject and/or delete cookies permanently or on a case-by-case basis.
      
  4. The site analysis software does identify individual IP addresses. For most users on college, university, or commercial internet provider systems, IP addresses are dynamically changing all the time as the system allocates resources among users minute-by-minute. Hence, for almost all users, we are able to identify only the school or commercial internet service provider who contacted us, not the individual computer which made the contact.
      
  5. Maintenance of this site is time consuming and there is absolutely no reason for us to be interested in which individuals may be accessing our resources. Hence, we maintain no records about even that small number of individual IP addresses which theoretically might identify individual users via the site analyzer.
      
  6. Since we cannot (and do not wish to) maintain records of individual users of this site, it is also true that we have nothing to share with any other organization about who is visiting us. There are no lists of users to sell.
      
  7. If you have any questions about your privacy on this site, please feel free to contact the STP Internet Editor.
