Find and prevent fraud
The Repository Project follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you submit a contact form, your data will only be used for us to communicate directly with you. Your information will not be sold or given away to third parties. We do our best to protect all information provided to us in our contact forms, but make no warranty about protecting any information you send to us… Please never send sensitive information by email or by our contact forms, including, but not limited to banking information, social security number, passwords, etc.
