|When you download certain pages on this website, a NEDSTAT counter
will record limited domain information about your visit as part of the
analysis of the use of this site. This information enables the Webmaster
to gain an approximate idea as to where recent visitors have come from
and, if they used a search engine to find the site, which search engine
and which keywords they used. This information is useful for helping to
improve the search engine rankings for the web pages. If you wish to see
what information was collected for the last ten visitors, you should visit
the following addresses:
Details of names, e-mail addresses and content of messages in the website Visitors Guestbook will not be passed on to third parties without the express permission of the contributor in question. Web visitors should understand however that by entering their e-mail address in the visitors' guestbook they place it in the public domain and are in effect inviting others to communicate with them. Further
Any e-mails and attachments sent to me relating to the pages on this website will be treated in the greatest confidence. In no case will I forward the contents of an e-mail or its attachments to a third party without first checking with the originator that I have his or her permission to do so.
There have been several occasions in the past when individuals seeking technical advice have attached unsolicited images of damaged electrical machines etc. to their e-mails, the better to explain the situation. Whilst receiving such information is always helpful to the discussion process, I would remind visitors that by sending intellectual property that may belong to their company, they may be breaching their own company rules on confidentiality. If you find yourself in such a situation, please do not send me confidential information and especially images unless and until you have checked the matter out with your organisation and have the authorisation to do so. Normally organisations regularise the situation by asking me to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement, which, of course, I am always ready to do.
