Use of Cookies and IP Addresses

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our website. Our site uses cookies to maintain user session identity, and, in some non-member areas, to store your username and password locally for ease of access.

“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future.
A unique number called an IP address identifies every computer on the Internet. Each time you connect to the Internet your machine is assigned an IP address. An IP address is a number that identifies each sender or receiver of information that is sent in packets across the Internet.

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.

Guidelines for Minors and Parental Consent

We at the RFA are concerned about protecting children’s privacy and follow these guidelines:


  • Collect online contact information without prior parental notification, which will include an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity. Without prior parental consent, online information will only be used to respond directly to the child’s request and will not be used for other purposes without prior parental consent.
  • Collect personally identifiable offline contact information without prior parental consent.
  • Distribute to third parties any personally identifiable information without prior parental consent.
  • Give the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information without prior parental consent.
  • Entice by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity, to divulge more information than is needed to participate in the activity.
