Background


On December 30, 2019, Vox.com published California's new privacy law, explained

  • 1) The right of Californians to know what personal information is being collected about them
    What this means: A business must tell you that it collects personal information about you either before or as that information is collected.
  • 2) The right of Californians to know whether their personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom What this means: A business must tell you the types (though not the names) of third parties it shares your personal information with, but it’s up to you to ask for this information. You also have the right to tell the business to delete your personal information and to not sell it (more on that later).
  • 3) The right of Californians to say no to the sale of personal information
    What this means: Businesses must give you ways to opt out of having your personal information sold to or shared with third parties like advertisers or data brokers, and they must honor your opt-out request. They must also put a link to their opt-out page on their homepage advising you of this right.

What California’s New Privacy Law Means for You. The CCPA is America's first big internet privacy law, designed to give power back to consumers. 1/2020


While I am not required to provide information I am doing so in the spirit of supporting the need to value the privacy of personal data that are currently being abused online by those who collect it then sell it without taking any responsibility for the stewardship of such data.

Since December, 2001 I have published on my Web site a Terms of Use & Privacy Policy Page which spells out who I would like my Web site to be used. At that time I felt that issuing such a statement help visitors understand how they can use the information I have on my webpages in a manner consistent with proper use of disseminated information.

Terms of Use


Purpose

  • As a teacher, I value good scholarship and appropriate use of knowledge sources. Freely accessible materials on the Internet does not mean that it is there for the taking, but for prudent sharing. To encourage the sharing of knowledge, those who create and share should be credited for their work and generosity. This is what I teach my students through example.
  • While this is a personal Web site, I strive for professional credibility by seeking to meet the standards set by those institutions/agencies interested in keeping the Internet a legitimate source of information that would add to our quality of life. I derive no monetary gain from the advertisements shown on the Web site, and have tried my best to use only those services that do not advertise adult materials.
  • I seek to provide the kind of information and services not currently provided by other sources. I derive no monetary gain from providing these services. The satisfaction I derive from doing this is that I can do so while exercising the freedom to determine the content as I see fit, as well as provide services currently unavailable through other means. I obtain assistance in honing the specific content and services through:
    1. Passive participation via Web site tracking;
    2. Active participation via Web site polls, which are all anonymous.

Privacy Policy


Purpose

  • My basic philosophy in developing Web content is to think of the population for which I am developing the content for. This way I can customize the content for the users.
  • It is also considered good webmastering practice to know how a Web site is being utilized. In understanding utilization, a Web site can be tailored to meet the needs of the population that visits. The only way to know how a Web site is being utilized is to collect data. Collecting such data can be viewed as intrusive. Therefore, it is important that the collection of such data be made known. I have done so on the Quality of Information Page and the Healthy People Objective 11.4 Page.
  • Now that this Web site has over 250 pages, it is a challenge to keep everything current. By knowing who comes to visit I can prioritize my energies as to where I should spend whatever time I have to devote to the Web site. My maintenance schedule and Web page development are determined largely by how frequently a particular page gets "hit," and the input I ask for on my polls.
  • Current Internet privacy policy standards were developed to protect the consumer. Most of these policies apply to commercial sites that do business on the Internet. I am not doing business on the Internet, but I value the importance of Privacy and the role it plays in our lives. Though I am not required to post a privacy policy on a personal Web site, I do so because saavy cyber-consumers would like to know how their Net travels are tracked, if that is the case. So, as a public service, and in the spirit of Best Practices, I am including a Privacy Policy.

What Information Do I Collect?

How Do I Use It?


Honesty in advertising & Editorial Policy


In compliance with HonCode's Principle 8 - Honesty in advertising & editorial policy - description of your advertising and editorial policy, I have added this section on 11/14/2009 and updated it 2/24/2011 to explain any advertising on this Web site, and my editorial policy concerning the Web site's content.

  • This site does not accept advertising. Basically, I make no money from these ads. These are clearly marked as advertisements.
  • I participate in Google.com's Adsense Program that allows me to provide free site and Internet search engine services for my visitors. I derive minimal income from the use of these services IF visitors click on search results that may be advertisers with Google.com.
  • What could be considered editorial comments are my blog entries, accessible from my Blog Index Page. Original sources are always cited for references I use (e.g., Quality of Life Quotes Reference Page ), and I always give credit where credit is due.
  • All links I have on my Web site have been reviewed by me for appropriateness and relevance. Most of the links are text, but sometimes they may be icons or widgets that may appear to be "banners", but none are advertisements in the sense that they are income-producing.
  • For further information about this site, check my Site Information Page .

Electronic Mailing Lists (Discontinued November, 2019 - Yahoo! Groups has gone defunct by the end of 2019)


Purpose

  • Electronic mailing lists allow for the rapid dissemination of information. However, such convenience can be misused and abused. This is commonly done through spamming, which is basically the electronic version of junk mail. Every person with E-mail access should have the right to determine what they receive. To this end, electronic mailing lists must be subscribed to, indicating the subscriber's decision to receive a particular piece of electronic mail.
  • Of course, when subscribing, one must provide at least an E-mail address to which electronic mail can be sent to. Subscription services vary widely in the kind of information they gather. My previous electronic mailing list service, Listbot.Com, collected demographic data from subscribers. This was really useful. The current service, eGroups/Yahoo.Com collects no demographic information. This leaves me at a disadvantage in terms of helping me to understand the subscription population. I compensate for this through proxy means, like Web site polling. Respondents are anonymous.

What Information Do I Collect?

How Do I Use It?

  • I am committed to protecting your privacy while using the Web site and the services it provides.
