Information Automatically Logged
Your IP address, browser type, referrer page (which may include terms entered into a search engine or other parameters), date, time, and file requested are automatically logged by our server every time a page or graphic is requested by your browser. We use this information to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our web site. This includes generating statistics on pages visited, regions visitors come from, sites that refer visitors to ned's and even detailed analysis of some visitors' paths through our site. This information is used to plan improvements to dreaded ned's and to help to identify and resolve problems.
Information from the server logs, including IP addresses, may be revealed to law enforcement agencies investigating malicious or illegal use of the facilities provided on the site.
Aggregate statistical data, which does not include IP address or other identifying information, may be displayed on the web site and to provided to advertisers, etc.
In addition to the information logged automatically by the server, your IP address and information entered by you is automatically logged in control files when you fill in a form or post a personal ad. This information may also be emailed to system administrators and is used to monitor and control operation of these features.
The optional session cookie, which is only temporary and is removed from your computer when you exit from your browser, is used to store a unique session key so the system can identify you and keep your temporary option settings as you travel about the site. The session key does not track what pages you visit or any information you enter, except for option settings. These option settings are lost when you leave the site or exit your browser - if you want to keep your option setting permanently you need to log in then any settings are saved on our server for when you next log in. If you do not accept the session cookie, the session key is added to the URLs you visit on the site. When you leave the site or exit from your browser the session key expires and the option settings are discarded.
A permanent cookie is optionally set if you request it to automatically log you in each time you visit the site. This cookie stores your login name and password so you do not have to enter it each time. You can set or clear this cookie using the profile option in the login box. You should not set this cookie if you are not the only person that uses the computer to access this site.
When submitting a person ad the information provided on the submission form, and the IP address used to submit the form, are included in a confirmation email sent to the email address used for the ad. This information, including the IP address, may then be used by the owner of the email address to investigate unauthorised use of the email address.
The information provided on the person ad form, including the email address, will be displayed on publicly accessible web pages and we have no control over the use of this information - it may be indexed by search engines and then found by family, friends, your employer, etc; it may be scanned by software to harvest email addresses for use by spammers; it may be read by people who will send you abusive emails because of the content of your ad; etc. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information in a public manner like this.
Our registration form does not ask for any personal information, just your email address and a name that you wish to use on our site. This does not have to be your real name.
