polls to users so they can easily share their opinions
with other users and see what our
audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other
responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable
to any particular user. Palmer Marketing may use a system
to "tag" users after they have voted, so they
can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is
not correlated with information about individual users.

to better target our content to our audience. We never
share any of this information about specific individuals
with any third party.

all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information
with data about individual users. Palmer Marketing does

domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this
information from the browser string (information contained
in every user's browser).

terms that users enter in our Search function, but this
tracking is never associated with individual users. We
use tracking information to determine which areas of our
sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those
areas. We do not track what individual users read, but
rather how well each page performs overall. This helps
us continue to build a better service for you.
