Web Logs

WVE maintains standard Web logs that record basic information about visitors to our Web site. These logs contain:

  • The Internet domain from which you came to our Web site.
  • Your IP address. An IP address is a series of numbers which uniquely identifies your connection to the Internet. Although it is possible in some instances, certain types of IP addresses may be used by interested persons to identify users but we do not attempt to identify users in this way.
  • The type of browser (e.g., Internet Explorer or Netscape) and operating system (e.g., Windows 98) you use
  • The date and time you visited the site, and the pages you saw.

We use Web log information to design our Web site, identify popular features, and in similar ways. We do not try to identify individuals from Web logs or to link Web logs to other user information. However, if someone tries to damage our Web site or use it in an unauthorized or illegal way, we may share Web log information with law enforcement agencies. WVE may provide aggregate information such as the number of users who visit particular pages of the site, or the number of people who link to certain external sites from our site, to other parties.
