RaynOrShyn Enterprises Privacy Statement
RaynOrShyn Enterprises is very concerned about the personal privacy of visitors, contributors
and customers of our web sites. Below are key privacy policies that form the foundation of
- Personally Identifiable Information Collected
Personal information may be entered by visitors who post messages to our systems, sign our
guest books, or purchase products. In all cases, this information is voluntary, and must be
actively entered by the visitor. In some cases, certain pieces of information are required to
perform an action, such as when an e-mail address is required to post a message for other
visitors to respond to, or the routine information needed to process a credit card order is requested.
- How This Information Is Used
This information is always used only for the purpose clearly specified on the page
on which it is entered. For example:
- Credit Card numbers and dates do not pass through our system, they are provided only to PayPal.
- Names and addresses entered on order pages, guest books, or software registration pages
are used only by RaynOrShyn Enterprises, and only for the purposes described on the
page of entry.
- How That Information Is Shared
- Mailing lists derived from guest books or software registration are never
shared with any other organization.
- Genealogical data posted for the purposes of finding or helping other researchers is made
available via the RaynOrShyn site, and indexed on external search facilities. This may
include e-mail addresses as entered by the poster.
- Correcting Inaccuracies or Damaging Information
Anyone who posts any information, or identifies personal information which may be damaging or
offensive, posted by another person, may request that this information be removed at any time by
Please check first, to be sure the site containing the problem information belongs to
RaynOrShyn Enterprises. While we take all privacy requests seriously, we have no control over
other sites, and contacting us about something we can not fix may only delay the resolution of your problem.
Anyone who has signed a guest book or registered software may request that their name be
removed from all future mailings via E-Mail.
Please note that mailings are infrequent, and only occur as described on the page where the
information was entered. RaynOrShyn Enterprises does not engage in unsolicited mass mailings
of any kind.
- Cookies and Browser Identification
Like most web sites, our servers use "cookies". These are small, harmless snippets of data
stored temporarily by your browser that help our servers recognize your path through our site.
On some pages they are also used to remember options or pages selected from a previous visit, for
We try to allow you to enjoy our site even if you have "cookies" disabled,
but some functionality may be lost.
Aggregate statistics, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, and operating
system of visiting browsers are tracked for statistical purposes, and to help us improve our
pages and products. This "Anonymous" information does not include any personal identification
such as name or e-mail address.
We may record the IP address of computers which use our systems to send e-mail or store data.
This data is used only to to track and respond to any possible abuse of those systems.
- Special Protection for Children
Pages with games or activities directed at children will never encourage the entry of personal
identifying information. When such information is received, such as via postal mail, it will not
be put on any publicly-accessible system. Where children's work is displayed, only first names
and municipalities will be used for identification.
All pages are designed to discourage the inadvertent entry of inappropriate personal
identification by children. No real-time "chat" or other dialog-based systems are used.
Links and advertising banners are reviewed for appropriate content before being added to our
- External Links
Links to sites beloning to other entities are not under the control of RaynOrShyn Enterprises,
and are provided for the convenience of our customers.
They do not, in any way, constitute an endorsement of the linked pages or any commercial or
private issues or products presented there. We cannot make any warranty or representation concerning
the content of these sites, or secondary sites from the pages to which they link. We can not
address privacy issues on sites not under our control.
