"Personal information" is information about a person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual's name, address, and telephone number, and does not include the user's domain name or IP address.

If personal information is requested on the website or volunteered by the user, state law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information is a public record once you provide it and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.

Users are cautioned that the collection of personal information requested of or provided voluntarily by children online or by electronic mail will be treated the same as information provided by an adult, and may be subject to public access.
