The Southern California Speed Skating Association (SCSSA) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy.  The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for all pages contained within

Simply put, we do not collect any personal information from our visitors.  We do not use "cookies" in any way (except to eat them at beach parties, pot lucks, and the like).  Nor do we utilize any companies that do collect such personal information, such as, etc.  Watch the "status bar" of your browser as each page loads.  The only entity outside of that you will see loading is "Jinko", and this is the separate company that runs the page counters. When you see your browser connecting to Jinko, it is only loading the page counter for that page.  One exception is noted in the following paragraph.

Information Automatically Logged:  The following is part of the setup of almost all websites worldwide.

The referring URL (the webpage you left before coming to an SCSSA webpage, if any) is logged whenever you come to this website from an off-site link. This information is not used by the SCSSA, and there are no plans to begin using it.

Ads:  The 3 advertisements at the bottom of "A Picture Guide to Speed Skating" are links to their websites only, and only one of them is a paying sponsor.  Cookies:  The SCSSA does not use cookies in any part of our Web site.  It is highly unlikely we will ever use them at any time.
