What Personal Information May the MMBand Have on Its Computers and Systems?
Because the MMBand uses standard Web logging in its Web servers, our Web server may automatically recognize the domain name of each Visitor, each Visitor’s IP address, what Web page the Visitor requests, and the time of the request, along with a variety of information supplied by the visitor’s browser. See www.microsoft.com and www.netscape.com for information about the Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator browsers, and see www.apache.org for details about Web logs.
In addition, the MMBand may collect the email addresses and messages of those who communicate with it via email or who enter email addresses in forms.
The MMBand may collect personally identifying information when a Researcher registers for access to the Collections, including the Researcher’s name, address, telephone number, and email address, and the Researcher’s proposal for using the Collections.
The MMBand may use “cookies” to track Users’ activities on the Site and in the Collections. Cookies are small files that a server transfers to the hard drive of someone who visits a site and that the server can access when the person returns to the site.
The primary sources of content for the Collections are publicly accessible Web pages that were collected and donated by third parties, but the MMBand will expand on such sources through its own collection activities. For instructions on removing a particular set of pages currently included in the Collections, please see our policies and procedures for page removal.
The communications between you and the MMBand may pass through many machines, operating systems, programs, browsers, Web servers, networks, routers, Ethernet switches, Internet service providers, proxy servers, intranets, the public phone system, or other devices (collectively, “Devices”) on your premises, at the MMBand, and in between. Some of these Devices create logs of activities that are recorded on computer systems.
