Automatic Collection of Anonymous Information

When you visit the FHCP Web site, as when you visit most other Web sites, certain anonymous information about your visit is automatically logged, which may include information about the type of browser you use, the server name and IP address through which you access the Internet (such as "aol.com" or "earthlink.net"), the date and time you access the site, the pages you access while at the FHCP Web site, and the Internet address of the Web site, if any, from which you linked directly to the FHCP Web site. This information is not personally identifiable.

Personally Identifiable Information

Personally Identifiable Information is any information that concerns you individually and would permit someone to contact you, for example, your name, address, telephone/fax number, email address or any information you submitted to FHCP that identifies you individually.

FHCP will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it. Therefore, if you do not want FHCP to obtain any personally identifiable information about you, do not submit it.

Children's Privacy  How do we verify?  Are we asking for birth month & year when registering?
