It is HistoricPA.net’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, HistoricPA.net collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

HistoricPA.net also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
HistoricPA.net does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
