About IP Addresses
TrainFinder Online collects IP addresses for the purposes of
system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to
your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers - the big computers that
"serve" up Web pages - automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
When guests request pages from TrainFinder Online sites, our
servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally
identifiable. This means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains
anonymous to us.

Users should be aware that when you are on TrainFinder Online

other sites from TrainFinder Online sites that take you outside our service. For example,
if you "click" on a banner advertisement, the "click" takes you off

that may use TrainFinder Online's logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other
sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information.
Always be aware of where you end up.
Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal
information online - for example, via message boards or chat - that information can be
collected and used by people you don't know. While TrainFinder Online strives to protect
its user's personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any
information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

information associated with our Guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care
in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers,
utilizing encryption software.
Only those employees who need access to your information in
order to do their jobs are allowed access, each having signed compressive nondisclosure
agreements, which provides explicit legal confidentiality protections. Any employee who
violates our privacy and/or security policies is subject to disciplinary action, including
possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution.
