My name is Al Hunt. That's me up there on the left.

Posting personal information on the internet concerns me. I'm not alone. EPIC (Electronic Privacy Information Center), established itself in 1994 with rising concerns about a persons personal information being kept in electronic form. This includes personal information posted on websites. Any information can easily be gleaned from websites by programs built for this purpose.

I try to limit the posting of personal information, that would be my information, and others information as well, as there are no safeguards for electronic pathways other than not participating. Of course, I can't possibly hope to have zero personal information somewhere online. I shop online and register with all kinds of companies. All those companies know much about me. I trust them to keep it private.

When I send information across the electronic abyss, I always ensure, where it is possible to use secured websites.
