Privacy Policy
  Are we snooping on you? Of course! OK, OK, we'll give you a straight answer. We aren't snooping. We collect no information from you as an individual when you visit -- nothing at all..

We help cover the cost of running this site by carrying ads from BURST! media. We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, you can visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

If you subscribe to the Happy Hacker mailing list, we do not give out your address to others -- expecially not to spammers!

If you choose to order any of our books, we give you a choice of places where you can order. We do not collect any order information on this web site.

However, we do gather statistics. For example, we know that 66.46% of you readers are using Internet Explorer, even though it is such a bad browser that a malicious hacker could program a web site to use it to erase your operating system. (Browse with Firefox, it's safer!) Only a tenth of one percent of you viewers are using Lynx, which is a text-only browser that runs under Unix operating systems. Now those Lynx users are REAL hackers!
