Privacy Policy

This is the web site of The Brown Study, a personal blog.

I can be reached via e-mail at Because this is a personal site, I will not provide my mailing address or telephone number. This is to protect me and mine from the occasional nut job out there. I trust you can understand that.

However, you DO have some protections, which are outlined below:

Collected Information

For each visitor to my Web page, my Web server automatically recognizes the your domain name (or “IP”) and e-mail address (if you have registered with this site).

Use of Collected Information

The domain name and e-mail address of registered and logged in visitors to my Web page is collected in a database, as is the e-mail addresses of those who post messages to the wall, the e-mail addresses of those who make postings to our chat areas, aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit, user-specific information on what pages consumers access or visit, information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey information and/or site registrations.

The information thus collected is mostly used for internal review and is then discarded (except registration information allowing you to log in), used to improve the content of the Web page, used to notify consumers about updates to the Web site, shared with agents or contractors who assist in providing support for its internal operations, disclosed when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing this Website and applicable laws or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Website and shared with other organizations to deliver targeted (meaning “customized”) advertisement to your screen.
