This identity is used to authenticate and authorize your access to services provided on the website. We will not share this identify information with third parties unless required by law.
We use the Google Analytics service, which will also place cookies in your browser. This service allows us to analyze the performance of the website and make improvements where needed.

We use Google's FeedBurner service for publishing RSS feeds.

Our web server generates a log entry for each item requested. Logs are reviewed daily to detect problems with the site (e.g. broken links) and vulnerability scans. Reports are generated weekly to quantify requests to resources that aren't trackable by Google Analytics (e.g., PDF documents, audio files, and video files.)
