Michaelfire.com does not collect any information from visitors or visitors' computers. Visitors' IP addresses are collected incidentally by the server on which the site is hosted in order to serve content requested by visitors to display site content within their browsers and when they click a link requesting further content. That's just the way a web browser works, and there's nothing anybody can do about it. The site does not use this information for any other purtpose nor does it share this information with anyone except for the server maintenance provider, Rackspace. The site maintains a policy that refuses to disclose visitors' IP addresses unless compelled to by a lawful order of a court of the United States, and then only if criminal or civil legal action is threatened and imminent, and then only if they talk very very nicely, and then only if the Owner is peeing his pants in panic. The site makes no promise of notice should such disclosure be forthcoming, whether or not within the conceivable, actual or proven power of the site. Visitors use the site at their own risk, but what else is new. This is the internet. One is scarcely in Kansas anymore.
