More About Your Privacy - U.S. Safe Harbor Privacy Principles

Scott Cooley would adhere to the U.S. Safe Harbor privacy principles, if he had the time and knew what they were exactly, but the name alone makes them sound good in principle to be sure.  Scott himself is from the U.S., and likes both safety and harbors.  Furthermore, he likes the safety that harbors afford.  Scott thinks this might have something to do with being a good person, pledging to comply with, or at least attempt in good faith to adhere to principles that members of our country's government were involved in creating, for goodness sake.  It's about being good, and not stealing information from web site visitors and doing bad things with that information, like sell it for a profit, or steal someone's identity, or steal their stuff, or wreck their computer, or harm their reputation.  Something along these lines, anyway.  As someone who is responsible for this web site, Scott trusts the reputation of Google.  The folks there know a lot more about this kind of stuff.  So, we agree you should be able to visit here anonymously and safely, and we agree we at Scott Cooley should adhere to these principles, even though we're not sure if we do or not due to not being familiar with them or making time to become familiar.  
Google adheres to them though - we know that much - and we use free things (software, services, infrastructure, possibly stuff with the word 'cloud' in it, other technical things we don't understand, etc.) from them to make the Scott Cooley web site available to you.  Here's the deal to the best of our understanding:  Anyone in the world can view this site, but you need a Google Account to access and use the Google Sites and Google Apps features on the Scott Cooley domain. Google asks for some personal information when you create a Google Account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access. Google's servers automatically record certain information about your use of Google Sites. Similar to other web services, Google records information such as account activity (e.g., storage usage, number of log-ins, actions taken), data displayed
or clicked on (e.g., UI elements, links), and other log information (e.g., browser type, IP address, date and time of access, cookie ID, referrer URL).  It is Scott's understanding that they do this so they can improve the software and services they supply - no bad things.  All good stuff, so surf on safely and rest assured.
