SRI currently collects three types of information
from its Web site: (1) your IP (Internet Protocol) address; (2) cookies; and (3)
information voluntarily submitted to SRI.
Your IP address often does not identify an individual, but rather is only a temporary
name by which an individual obtains access to the Web site.
SRI uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to
administer and assess our Web site quality.
We do not track the usage patterns of individual users, but rather how well each
page on our site performs overall.
Information voluntarily disclosed to SRI either online, in writing or otherwise
is added to the SRI database for appropriate response or use.
This information is usually the persons and companys name, address and
other information. SRI will use its
best efforts to prevent others from obtaining such information unless required by
law. Information provided to SRI in
non-electronic form may also be used in this way.
Individuals who would like to opt out of receiving additional electronic communications from SRI should contact SRI to have their names removed from our
lists by e-mailing
