larve.net Privacy Statements

Some web pages on this Web site have different privacy policy statements. This page includes the public and restricted statements.

This policy is available in a machine readable format (P3P).

Public areas

Summary:

I make no effort to identify public users of our site. No identifying data is disclosed to any third party for any purpose. Data that I collect is used only for server administration and Web protocol research.

This statement applies to public (i.e. non autheticated) interactions with the larve.net Web servers. It does not apply to emails sent to larve.net. Any questions regarding the Web site and the privacy policy can be directed to hugo@larve.net. Email interactions are guided by general net-etiquette conventions.

As is typical, I log HTTP requests to the server. This means that I know the originating IP (e.g. 18.29.5.151) address of a user agent requesting a URL. I also know the Referer and User-Agent information accompanied with an HTTP request. I do not log the specific identity of visitors. I analyze the log files to determine which files are most requested and the previous site or user agent which prompted the request. My logging is passive; I do not use technologies such as cookies to maintain any information on users.

Logged information is kept indefinitely as admistrative and research material; it is not disclosed to anybody. Aggregate (completely non-identifying) statistics generated from these logs may be reported as part of research results.

Restricted areas

Summary:

I use authentication in order to restrict access to my personal data. I log usernames in the restricted areas.

This statement (and the public statement above) applies to interactions with restricted areas of the larve.net Web site. It does not apply to the public areas nor email sent to larve.net. Any questions regarding the web site and the privacy policy can be directed to hugo@larve.net. Email interactions are guided by general net-etiquette conventions.

Interactions with restricted areas of the site are authenticated. Consequently I have the capability to identify users and their activities. The referrer and the user-agent are also logged, as for requests in the public areas.

Logged information is kept indefinitely as admistrative and research material; it is not disclosed to anybody. Aggregate (completely non-identifying) statistics generated from these logs may be reported as part of research results.
