2. We review our Website statistics from time to time. This data tells us the number of users visiting the site each day and if they were referred by another web site. Typically the statistics we review do not allow for identification of individual users, though it might tell us the originating ISP of users. Should we obtain this information through our statistics program, we do not retain it and will not share this information with any outsiders except as specified under paragraph four (3) below.
We review site statistical information to make sure each of our site pages are relevant, useful and render correctly. We like to know which pages are most beneficial and which are not being frequently used so that we may continue to provide the best content in areas of interest to site visitors.
3. In the future, Williams Associates may develop a newsletter for the benefit of our clients and those people visiting the site who opt to receive the newsletter. We may send one announcement to site visitors to inform them of the start of such a newsletter or other new services which we implement in the future, but we will not send continual email or newsletters to anyone who does not actually submit a "subscribe" type message or other similar request, and we will not supply this list of users to any other source.

specific people in order to assist you in some way;
