any questions or comments, please feel free to ask.
we handle the information we gather when you visit our web site.
- Web server
activity logs - Like most web servers on the Internet, our 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 is Harriet and its numerical
address is 126.96.36.199;
- the date and
time you accessed our site;
- the Internet
address of the web page that you came from;
- the page you
requested from our site and the number of characters sent to your
- 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.
- It is impossible
to determine the actual identity of an individual user from this
information. The logs are periodically summarized and analyzed in
order to study site usage over time and to perform other studies
to help us improve the site's organization, performance, and usefulness.
mail - When you send us personal identifying information via
e-mail (that is, in a message containing a question or comment, or by
filling out a form that e-mail's us this information), we use it to
respond to your requests. We may forward your e-mail to individuals
who are better able to answer your questions. We do not retain or distribute
lists of e-mail addresses to any parties outside of Albuquerque Chapter
of MOAA. In no event, do we distribute lists of e-mail addresses.
- File transfer
protocol (FTP) - Many Albuquerque Chapter of MOAA sites using the file transfer
protocol may also store your e-mail address if your web browser is configured
to provide it. By default most web browser software does not send your
e-mail address; this option is configured through your browser preferences.
In Netscape Navigator, for example, this option must be set by you through
the Advanced preferences category by the item labeled, "Send e-mail
address as anonymous FTP password."
surveys - When you voluntarily provide us with personal information
as part of an online survey, we use it to perform various quantitative
and qualitative analyses to improve customer service and satisfaction.
You are under no obligation to participate in such surveys. Non-participation
will not inhibit your use of our web site in any way. If you provided
the information to us in error, you may request its removal at any time.
release of gathered information
We want to make it clear that we will not obtain personal identifying
information about you when you visit our web sites, unless you choose
to provide such information to us. We do not attempt to identify individual
users or share any information we receive with any parties outside of
Albuquerque Chapter of MOAA. The only exceptions to this are:
- officially authorized
law enforcement investigations wherein Albuquerque Chapter of MOAA has been served with
an appropriate warrant to provide specific information, or
- a suspected attempt
to deliberately circumvent our system's security with the intent to
gain unauthorized access or to do physical damage for example, an attack
by hackers. In this case, collected information associated with a suspected
intruder will be provided to the FBI.
Retention of collected
Cookies - Some applications may save a "cookie" on your computer's
hard disk to provide a temporary history of actions taken. A common example
is the tracking of items placed in an online "shopping basket."
We do not retain any record of "cookies" beyond what is necessary
for running the application.
- Web server activity
logs - Monthly extracts of the log files are archived and stored off-line
at our discretion for an indefinite period of time. Some statistical
summaries derived from these data may be retained online or off-line
at our discretion for an indefinite period of time.
- E-mail - Information
collected via e-mail will be retained at our discretion in a directly
readable form for as long as necessary to complete our response. The
e-mail itself may be retained in an archival form.

- Information collected via online surveys may be maintained at our
discretion for an indefinite period of time.
