from voting more than once in a poll. In cases where a cookie is used in
conjunction with an online poll, no specific personal information is

been cast from a particular computer; it does not allow us to know who cast
the vote, what the vote was, or other information.
Cookie technology may also be used
to track which pages are being viewed, though such tracking does not
disclose to us which specific individuals are viewing the pages. This
type of tracking, if implemented, is used to help determine which kinds
of articles are most popular with our viewer and other similar
information. This information is only used by the Kiowa County Press in
developing and improving the web site(s) and is not disclosed or
transmitted to any third party.

our server(s) do(es) collect, without the use of cookie technology,
general information about which pages are being viewed,
which types of browsers are used to view the pages, the day and time the pages
were viewed and other similar statistical information, however such information
cannot be correlated to specific individuals. Similar statistical
information is retained by virtually all servers.
