The Privacy Policy of the Palmer-Associates WebSites

Palmer Associates respects the privacy of visitors to its websites. On this page, we describe the information obtained about our visitors.
Links are given to Wikipedia for those wishing to learn more about a technical term.

Log Files
Like those of many websites, our Web Server keeps a server log containing basic information about the visitors to the site. This information includes:
. . . . . Each visitor's IP address
. . . . . The date and time of her or his visit to our site.
. . . . . The HTTP referrer, which indicates from which website they came to our site.
. . . . . Basic details about her or his Web browser and operating system
. . . . . A list of which pages they viewed on our site during their visit.

Such information is commonly collected by websites, and is indeed a basic element of browsing the Web.
At Palmer Associates, we do not store this data long-term, nor do we ever sell it to any third parties.

Our software sends HTTP cookies to the Web browsers of users, mainly to help in remembering their login details and preferences for when they revisit the site. This information is stored on the user's computer. At any time, a user can choose to remove the cookies from her or his Web browser, thus effectively causing the “forgetting” of that information. Users can also set their Web browsers to reject the use of Cookies, but that can impair functionality on this and on many other websites.

Advertisements and Web Beacons
Our websites are supported by advertisements, and the parties responsible for serving those advertisements (such as Google and Amazon) may also collect some basic information about visitors to our sites, primarily in order to better serve advertising content to them. The advertisement providers may use technologies such as Cookies and Web Beacons in order to collect the aforementioned information and to confirm that the advertisements have been properly served.

Anyone particularly concerned about the basic Web information collected by Palmer Associates (and by a great many other websites) is advised to read the information linked to in the body of the preceding text.
