Virus Warning: You may have noticed an increase in virus-infected emails coming into your inbox, a good number of them purportedly from people or organizations you know and trust. In many cases, the infected emails are not from the reported senders. I have received infected files allegedly from friends, coworkers, relatives and even my own closed e-mail accounts which I haven't used for months! Some people have reported receiving them from my accounts, only one of which I use regularly. Information on the most common virus of this type is available from the McAfee Virus Information Library at http://vil.mcafee.com/dispVirus.asp?virus_k=99455. Note that this virus has the ability to spoof the e-mail header, and make it appear that the message was sent by someone in the victim's own address book. That means an infected email that appears to come from a coworker could have come from anyone who has that coworker's email address in their address book, as well as from the coworker's own computer (if infected). Here is how to deal with computer viruses (these steps have kept my computer virus-clean since 1985):
Ensure you have an active "auto-protect" virus scanner constantly running on your computer. This should alert you of a problem as soon as detected and before any damage is done.
In addition to the above, regularly scan your computer with the latest virus definition profiles for your anti-virus program (I do this weekly). McAfee, Symantec/Norton, F-Prot, PC-Cillin, and others all have the ability to reliably detect and eliminate known viruses.
Update your virus definition files often (checking twice a week is not too often these days). I have my anti-virus software set to automatically download the latest virus definition file as soon as it's released.
If you receive an infected email attachment or an unexpected email attachment from someone you do not know, delete it without opening it.
Ignore email virus warnings from well-meaning coworkers, friends, and relatives. Never forward these messages. Some of them are bogus. Others actually contain virus attachments. Many even contain dangerous instructions such as to delete essential system files from your computer!
This is one time when paranoia is healthy. Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you!
Pornography Warning: Many of my web pages include links to other web sites that are maintained by other persons. I personally check all web sites before I link to them to ensure they are worthwhile and safe for trusting minds. However, it is not unusual for an innocent web site to turn into one you don't want your family to visit. What happened? It's a practice called called porn-napping. If a site's domain registry expires, the name is available for anyone to purchase and use. Sometimes, very worthwhile web sites simply disappear -- along with the content you're seeking. Even worse, the bad guys buy many of these expired domain names that have earned a good reputation and use them to assault us with pornography, internet gambling, scams, etc. The porn site often holds the URL's good name hostage, offering to sell the address back to the original owner at an inflated rate. For more information, go to find.pcworld.com/26601. All parents should periodically check all sites that their children visit. If you discover these conditions on any links on my web pages, please notify me immediately.
The Webmaster collects personally identifiable information when you register for Nay/McNee Clan internet services and when you share genealogical information. The Webmaster may also receive personally identifiable information from business partners. The Webmaster will not sell, rent, share, barter, disclose or otherwise make available this information for the purpose of solicitation of any kind. Please don't ask us to violate our subscribers' trust.
When you register with this website, we may ask for your name, email address, zip code, birth date, sex, occupation, industry, personal interests, and genealogical information. Once you register and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to us.
The Webmaster is not setup to automatically receive and record information from your browser such as your IP address, cookie information etc.
Genealogical information which is shared with the Webmaster may be published on this website. Nevertheless, the Webmaster will not publish personal information such as ages, dates, and places of persons known to the Webmaster to be living. Otherwise, the Webmaster will send personally identifiable information about you to other companies or people only when:
We have your consent to share the information;
We need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested;
We need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of the Webmaster to provide a product or service to you. (Unless we tell you differently, these companies do not have any right to use the personally identifiable information we provide to them beyond what is necessary to assist us.);
We respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process; or
We find that your actions on our web sites violate the Webmaster's Terms of Service or any of our usage guidelines for specific products or services.
The Webmaster is not set up to set or access cookies on your computer. The Webmaster allows other companies that are presenting advertisements on some of our pages to set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies. These cookies are stored on your hard drive, not on our site. You are always free to decline cookies if your browser permits, although you may miss out on some shortcuts, automation, special promotions, certain features such as shopping carts and the like.
The Webmaster gives you the ability to modify your account information and preferences at any time at www.three-peaks.net/update.htm or by sending an email to the Webmaster. You may request deletion of your account by sending an email to the Webmaster.
If you send us correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your use of our services, we may collect such information into a file specific to you. We use information in the file we maintain about you, and other information we obtain from your current and past use of the service, to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our user agreement.
The email and website hosting services contracted by the Webmaster act as a passive conduit for the distribution and receipt of your internet activity. The Webmaster and his contractors therefore will not monitor, edit, or disclose the contents of a User's private communications unless required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the Webmaster;
Protect and defend the rights or property of the Webmaster;
Act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of its Users or the public.
The User should also be aware that certain technical processing of and access to email messages and their content, the Webmaster or his contractors may be required to:
Route the messages;
Conform to connecting networks' technical requirements;
Conform to the limitations of the service; or
Conform to other similar requirements.
The email services contracted by the Webmaster use industry-standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your transmissions. However "perfect security" does not exist on the internet (or anywhere, for that matter.) The fact that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access your transmissions or communications is very real. Therefore, although we have contracted to obtain industry standard practices to protect your privacy and the Webmaster is completely comfortable with the security of these services for his own personal communication, we do not promise, and you should not assume, that your communications will remain private.
We may occasionally send to you periodic emails containing information about our services, updates on family history posted on our website, service usage tips, information about new or upgraded services that are likely to be of interest to our Users, User satisfaction questions, and administrative notices about your account. We will not use your email address for purposes unrelated to our website and services.
The term Webmaster as used herein shall also pertain to any employees, agents, assigns, or successors of the Webmaster.
