Privacy on www.OurTimeLines.com
The Timeline and Peers Forms
www.OurTimeLines.com does not archive, sell or give away any information you provide the site via the timeline or peers forms. This means names, dates, and custom events.
This information is only placed into the web page being generated for you. Your computer is the only one that will receive this web page (unless you post it on your site, of course, and make it public yourself!)
Once the CGI engine has generated your timeline or peer group page, the names, birthdates and custom events that were provided as CGI data from the form's input fields are immediately discarded from our server - absolutely no storage of this information, even in temporary form, on a hard drive or other system device ever occurs. For this reason, it is not possible to "hack" the site. Your information cannot be retrieved from the server's filesystem under any circumstances - it's literally "not there."
www.OurTimeLines.com may use "cookies" to control banner operations. In that case, our cookies place a single integer number in storage within your browser. This number tells us which banner we displayed on the page you were looking at if we retrieve it from your browser. If you then click on the banner, we retrieve the cookie and use the number to determine which web site address to send you to. At this time, we also add one to the counter that tracks how many times people have clicked that banner to visit the web site in question. Then we forward your browser to the web site you wanted to visit.
Note that the count referred to above is a count of click-throughs only. It is completely general (meaning, anyone who clicks the banner adds one to the counter) and does not in any way identify you or track you.
The use we make of this counter is to let the advertiser know how many times the banner was clicked upon, as compared to the number of times it was displayed. That, in turn, gives the advertiser statisical information they can use to develop more interesting and effective banners, if they so choose.
These cookies immediately expire (go away completely) when you leave the www.OurTimeLines.com web site.
can control what banners are allowed to show.

Our Pledge to You
We absolutely promise that if at any time we wish to gather information from our visitors, we will do so via a form that specifically and publicly declares its intent to gather and store such information. We will disclose the precise usage and limits of usage of that information clearly and publicly on that form, so you don't have to surf to a different page to see what it is you're getting involved in, potentially missing such a declaration.
At this time, we see no need to do any such gathering of informaion. As a general rule, we consider your privacy to be something we must respect, and will avoid any such information gathering unless we cannot see any other way to provide a worthwhile benefit to you.
