Privacy & Security Notice: Your privacy is very important to us.
Types of information Homestead collects:
Homestead does not collect personally identifiable information about users of their hosted sites, and thus we are unable to view your personally identifiable information unless you give it to us directly via the guest book, email, forms, etc. (We are only able to see generic information such as how many people have visited our site.) Homestead automatically records non-personally identifiable information when you visit our website, including the IP address, browser type and language, and the date and time of your visit. This enables Homestead to tell us if we have returning visitors and if our site format works properly with your computer.
We use your information only for contacting you in relation to your desired purpose, and you will never receive marketing information from us. We will not send you periodic "junk mail" :)
Information you give us will not be shared with others unless you direct otherwise via the forms provided, or create a guest book entry.
Rest assured, this site is here for you, not to get something from you, and we respect your privacy.
What is a 'cookie'? (From Homestead.com)
There are some popular myths about HTTP cookies. Contrary to these fears and misconceptions, cookies were not created to spy on or otherwise invade the privacy of Internet users. Cookies contain only information that users volunteer, and they do not have the capability of infiltrating a user's hard drive and sneaking away with personal information. The simple function of a cookie is that of helping the user navigate a website with as little obstruction as possible.
Now, some of your visitors may receive an alert or notification about cookies when visiting your pages. This is because we offer a statistics tracking feature, which gives members detailed information about who has visited their sites. In order to track this information, cookies have been added to all hosted web pages.
Typically, this message will ask if they want to set the cookie ('Yes' or 'No').
- Clicking 'Yes' means that a cookie will be set that will last the length of their browser session.
- Clicking 'No' means that the cookie will not be set and that users will be prompted by this 'Alert!' each time they view a page within that site.
Setting the cookie enables the statistics feature to make a record, much more efficiently, of who has visited your site; in no way does it affect the performance of your pages.
