For site management, information is collected for statistical purposes. CSSC uses software programs to create summary statistics for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest or identifying system performance or problem areas. Google Analytics, a free service, is currently the primary software program used for this assessment. The following is a non-exhaustive list of the type of information collected by Google Analytics about your visit to the website: the name of the Internet domain from which you access the CSSC website (for example, “aol.com” if you are connecting from America Online), the Web browser you used to access the CSSC website, the date and time you access our site and what files you viewed, and the general geographic location from which you access the CSSC website. If you choose to provide us with personal information in an e-mail message, we use it only to respond to your e-mail. Authors’ personal contact information provided in their manuscript submissions is used only in the processing of the manuscript for review and publication purposes.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, our host uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or otherwise cause damage. Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on this service are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986. Information also may be used for authorized law enforcement investigations. Except for the above purposes, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits.
