• CAIA may collect information from readers.  If you give it to us, we can use it.  Duh.
  • Don’t let that fool you into thinking we don’t care about your privacy though. CAIA uses a hosted analytics solution for precisely this reason; to ensure your data is not being shared with an evil third party such as big brother Google.
  • Any private communication you make with the CAIA will be treated with the utmost confidence. However, if you post information in publicly accessible areas of the website like comments or the forum then be prepared to shared this with the world for perpetuity by us and other outfits such as the internet archive, Google et al whose robots regularly visit this site.
  • Lots of cool stuff on CAIA requires cookies.  So we use those.  You can clean them off if they scare you. Cookieculler is a good tool for blocking these in first instance, also, you should look into blocking flash cookies (which this website does not use but which might get onto your system if we embed a video from a third party site like Youtube, who can then use them to spy on your every internet move) – hint, use firefox and install this extension.
  • Depending on what you want from CAIA, we may require your email.  (Hard to send you newsletters when we don’t have it, for instance).  We occasionally use this data to screen out repeat registration and the like.
