There are two kinds of information that a website might gather
about its visitors.
The first is very general, technical types of information, of a
mostly anonymous nature. This includes such things as the type of
browser a visitor is using, or what part of the country (or which
country) the person is from, and of course what particular pages
or sections of the website did the person look at. This type
of information gets recorded in the server logs at every website,
and is used primarily by the website administrator to monitor
things like the number of hits (ie: visitors) the website is getting,
to ensure the server is working properly, is providing fast response
to visitors, and so forth.
The second type of information which websites might obtain from
their visitors is user-identifiable data, and could be anything
of a personal nature such as their name, email address, birthdate,
and so forth. For instance, a website which is selling goods and
services might need this type of information - such as a credit
card number - to authorize the sale of their products. Or the
person who is accessing the website might make a request for
materials which would be emailed to that visitor at a later date.
These are not things which are automatically gathered by a website:
all of these types of information have to be provided through a
deliberate voluntary action on the part of the visitor, usually
through some type of online registration form.
The following information explains our policy regarding any personal information
you may supply to us when visiting our web site. Our goal in collecting any
personal information online is to provide you with a personalized web experience.
By knowing your preferences we can deliver relevant information that meets your
needs, and ensures that your visit to our site is quick, easy, and productive.
Specifically, the following points summarize the information
gathered through this website, the manner in which it is used,
and the steps taken to protect it.
User Privacy Is An Absolute Priority:
Our policy regarding any information gathered through this website is
the same irregardless of whether it is of an anonymous or of a personal
nature. Any and all information you provide through our website is used
ONLY by us to provide you with specific requested services. We do not
disclose any information to anyone else under any circumstances. We
consider your privacy to be paramount.
Visitor Activity Tracking & IP Addresses:
WebMagician Global collects IP addresses for system administration and internal
tracking. When you visit our site, our servers log the IP addresses only. We do
not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable.
Guestbook Entries & Search Engine Robots:
Robots (search engines) visit most websites, gathering information
about the website to load into their databases. Many search engines
visit our website gathering information about our site. With respect
to our visitors' guestbook, the information you provide when signing
the guestbook is of course visible to any other website visitor.
We cannot control how other users may use any information they may
see in the guestbook. However, the guestbook entries are written
into a database rather than being placed directly on a webpage.
We use a back-end cgi script to generate the guestbook pages
directly to the visitor's browser window. Consequently the
guestbook information can only be displayed by a visitor after
executing a cgi script. We employ the universal standard as defined
by the World Wide Web Consortium for controlling website spidering
by search engine robots. Using this standard mechanism, we prohibit
access to the cgi scripts by all search engine robots.
Visitor Activity Tracking via Advertising & Offsite Link-backs:
Unlike most websites, we do NOT permit banner advertising of any
kind on this website and there are NO embedded script links to
external websites. Both of these schemes permit sophisticated
tracking of website visitor activity, and we therefore consider
them to be an outright violation of your online privacy. If you
carefully read the privacy statements on most websites which do
feature banner advertising and hidden offsite link-backs, when
they speak about such advertising links they invariably state
that they assume no responsibility for how these third-party
advertisers use your information. They do this because they know
damn well that those third-party advertisers use the information
in ways which do not conform to their own privacy statements, and
thus they are looking to wash their hands of their responsibility
to their website visitors.

There are a few areas in this website where you must provide some
types of personal information in order for us to provide a particular
service. One example of this is our astrological birth chart service.
In order to be able to produce the birth chart graphic for you,
we have to have the information required by the program which
generates the birthchart. This type of information is used ONLY for
the purposes for which it was required to be provided. It is not placed
anywhere on the website, nor is it accessible through any mechanism
found on the website. Any information which you may provide in using
this website for these types of services is held in the strictest
confidence. We do NOT under any circumstances make any of this
information available to anyone else.
We do NOT send unsolicited email to anyone for any purpose. The only
time our system sends any visitor an email is to confirm that we have
received some type of request from the visitor, or to supply the visitor
with information or material which they have specifically asked for.
Under NO circumstances do we send email to visitors for any other
reason. Under absolutely no circumstances do we provide any other
party with anyone's email information - nor any other information.

We have a zero-tolerance policy regarding unsolicited email.
