Automatic Data Collection

      Like most Web servers on the Internet, my servers collect and stores all of the information that your web browser sends when it requests a web page, including:

  • the name, domain, and numerical internet address of the "host" computer (typically a computer belonging to your Internet Service Provider and not your personal computer) from which you access the Internet. For example, your host computer's name and its numerical address
  • the date and time you accessed our site
  • the Internet address of the web page that you came from
  • the page you requested from the site and the number of characters sent to your computer
  • the information your web browser software sends as its so-called "User Agent," which typically identifies the browser software and may also indicate the operating system and type of CPU used in your personal computer
      I periodically summarize and analyze these log files to learn how visitors use content on the site. This information is used to allocate resources effectively and to improve the content, organization and performance of the site. This process does not collect, store or use personally-identifying information such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address.

Collection and Release of Gathered Information

      It is my policy to collect only that personally-identifying information (such as name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number) that visitors to the Shryock Family website knowingly and voluntarily provide by entering the Message Center on the website. If you do provide personally-identifying information, that information will be displayed to other participants of that activity for networking purposes. You may view and edit that information through your personal page within the Members Area.

      William M. Shryock, Jr. is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. I will not sell, share or rent this information to others, period. I do not collect, save or store such personally-identifying information from web visitors who just browse through the website without completing and e-mailing any forms, and I do not attempt to identify users or share user information with any parties outside of the Shryock Family website, except as described above, in the event of a suspected attempt to deliberately circumvent the system's security with the intent to gain unauthorized access to or to do physical damage (for example, an attack by hackers), and as required in the course of officially authorized law enforcement investigations.

Electronic Mail

      When you send personal identifying information via e-mail (that is, in a message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a form that e-mails this information), I use it to respond to your requests. I may forward your e-mail to other family members who are better able to answer your questions. I do not retain or distribute lists of e-mail addresses to any parties outside of the Family. In no event, will I distribute lists of e-mail addresses to any outside parties. Information collected via e-mail will be retained at my discretion in a directly readable form as long as necessary to complete my response. Family members e-mail addresses will be maintained in my personal address list in order to communicate with family members on a personal level or in reference to the Shryock Family web page.


      A cookie is simply a small piece of information that a web server asks your browser to store on your local computer, and then later your browser presents this information to the web server. In its simplest form, a cookie is just an identifying number.

      The Shryock Family Message Center uses cookies in the course of its normal operation to keep track of your activity within the message center. The cookies used on the website do not contain any personal information about visitors, nor are they used to look up personal information about visitors. Even if you have entered information about yourself in one of our registration forms, I do not relate that information to the cookie data.

      By using this site, you signify your agreement with the Shryock Family Web Site’s privacy policy. I reserve the right, at my discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of this policy at any time. Your continued use of this website signifies your acceptance to these terms.

Links to Other Websites

      This Website contains links to other websites that are not operated or maintained by the Shryock Family website and are not covered by this Privacy Statement. Visitors should be aware that the links on this Website are provided only for your convenience. I have no control over, make no promises or warranties of any kind with regard to, and accept no responsibility or liability for, the content of any other websites or their privacy policies, their use of cookies, or the way they collect, save, store or use information. You should review the privacy policy of each website you visit.
