issue of privacy on the Internet. It is not our intention to use
any information gathered here for personal profit. We are your schoolmates,
and are doing this for the benefit of the group.
What information do we collect?
To help us compile statistics regarding the number of online guests
who visit our site, SpringerConnection.com collects and stores
only the following information: the date and time our site was accessed,
which areas of the site were accessed, the address of any site a
visitor linked from (so we can know how you found the site), and
the name of the domain that was used to access the Internet (i.e.
aol.com, etc.) With this information, we are better able to ensure
the continued usefulness of our site to you and other members.
We also collect the information you provide to us when signing

Members may send email messages to other Members using the special
programming buit into the Springer Connection Message Board, but
the Sender will not be able to see the email address of the Member
to whom they are mailing, preserving privacy for all.

addresses of members from "robot programs" that search
