Should you have any questions or concerns about the Arkansas Welder Certification Website privacy statement and use of personal information, please feel free to contact my webmaster by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Automatic Data Collection
Like most Web servers on the Internet, my servers collect and store all of the information that your web browser sends when it requests a web page, including:
the name, domain, and numerical internet address of the "host" computer (typically a computer belonging to your Internet Service Provider and not your personal computer) from which you access the Internet. For example, your host computer's name and its numerical address
the date and time you accessed our site
the Internet address of the web page that you came from
the page you requested from the site and the number of characters sent to your computer
the information your web browser software sends as its so-called "User Agent," which typically identifies the browser software and may also indicate the operating system and type of CPU used in your personal computer
I periodically summarize and analyze these log files to learn how visitors use content on the site. This information is used to allocate resources effectively and to improve the content, organization and performance of the site. This process does not collect, store or use personally-identifying information such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address.
Collection and Release of Gathered Information
It is my policy to collect only that personally-identifying information (such as name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number) that visitors to the Arkansas Welder Certification website knowingly and voluntarily provide by entering a message in the Contact Us section on the website. If you do provide personally-identifying information, that information will be used by me to conduct the requested action.
Mike L. Porter, Sr. is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. I will not sell, share or rent this information to others, period. I do not collect, save or store such personally-identifying information from web visitors who just browse through the website without completing and e-mailing any forms, and I do not attempt to identify users or share user information with any parties outside of the Arkansas Welder Certification website, except as described above, in the event of a suspected attempt to deliberately circumvent the system's security with the intent to gain unauthorized access to or to do physical damage (for example, an attack by hackers), and as required in the course of officially authorized law enforcement investigations.
When you send personal identifying information via e-mail (that is, in a message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a form that e-mails this information), I use it to respond to your requests only. I do not retain or distribute lists of e-mail addresses to any other parties. In no event, will I distribute lists of e-mail addresses to any outside parties. Information collected via e-mail will be retained at my discretion in a directly readable form as long as necessary to complete my response.
A cookie is simply a small piece of information that a web server asks your browser to store on your local computer, and then later your browser presents this information to the web server. In its simplest form, a cookie is just an identifying number.
