Privacy on the Internet

The da Vinci Project respects the privacy of its Internet users and will attempt to protect that privacy with it's best efforts.

The da Vinci Project does not collect personal information that identifies individuals except when individuals provide such specific information on a voluntary basis. There may parts of the site where specific personal information is required before an individual can enter. For example, registration may be needed to enter a members only area, or to request a The da Vinci Project brochure or participate in an online forum. This kind of registration helps us to ensure that content standards on these sections of the site are appropriate. Information that may be requested in order to personalize the homepage or any other The da Vinci Project site section would be a similar example.

In all such cases, The da Vinci Project will collect only information that is voluntarily provided by the user and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential. Individual information provided to The da Vinci Project to gain access to any part of the The da Vinci Project site will not be sold or made available to a third party.

The da Vinci Project does reserve the right, however, to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of its sites so as to improve design and navigation and to gather marketing information. Only aggregated data from these analyses, not individual data, will be used for this purpose.

As well, users should be aware that certain non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by The da Vinci Project through the operation of what are called "cookies". "Cookies" are small text files that identify an individual computer's browser entering a web site. They allow the site to track that browser's movement through the site over several sessions. Through cookies, a web site can recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behaviour that will allow content improvements. The da Vinci Project uses cookies only for the above-mentioned purposes and will not use them to identify users or to track non-The da Vinci Project usage.

If you do not want a cookie placed on your computer by The da Vinci Project, you may disable cookies altogether by modifying the Preferences section of your Netscape or Internet Explorer browser (under Edit/Preferences/Advanced). Note that it is possible that some aspects of The da Vinci Project sites may be unavailable to you if you choose this option.

If you have no problem accepting cookies, but wish to be informed of their appearance, you may turn on a warning prompt by modifying the cookie warning section in Edit/Preferences/Advanced.
