Privacy Notice Orbat.Com
v.1.1. June 2, 2002
Reviewed wth no changes June 1, 2003
Ø Orbat.com collects no information of any sort on visitors or subscribers.
Ø Subscribers use their E-Mail address as their user names, but can use a made-up E-Mail address – we have no requirement for a real address.
Ø We keep no record of passwords issued. Passwords are encrypted using 128-bit DES with a one-way algorithm; once the password has been encrypted, we ourselves would have to decrypt it to know what it is.
Ø We do not examine traffic patterns from our server statistics and do not attempt to trace IP addresses. The only server statistics we share with anyone are overall figures like number of hits and page views.
Ø We do keep a record of payments from subscribers for accounting, tax, and renewal purposes. This record contains the E-Mail address the subscriber used to send the payment to PayPal.
Personnel with Access to Subscriber Information
Ø Payment records, the Password File, and the server statistics are known only to the Editor. They can be accessed by the Webmaster. As part of our informal line of succession, should the Editor be unable to perform his duties, we have a provision for these records to be made available to the Executive Editor, Mr. Johann Price. He would take over as editor.
