server administration and web protocol
research. This statement applies to non-member
interactions with HASOs web servers.
It does not apply to email sent to HASO
staff or lists. Email interactions are
guided by general net-etiquette conventions.
As is typical, we log HTTP requests to
our server. This means that we know the
IP address from which you access our website,
your browser and platform type, and referral
