PRIVACY and SECURITY: We aren't smart enough to collect lists of names automatically from visitors to our web site, so we certainly won't do anything with your name unless you send us a message. Frankly, we don't have time to care about doing things with your name or address that you don't want. However, our site is also "insecure," like most places on the Web, and our order form page is NOT a credit-card secure ordering system. We don't take credit cards.

Any use of trade names is for descriptive or informative purposes only, and such names are or may be trademarks of their respective owners. Except as noted, all of Gibson Consulting's pages and our images (whether ownership is indicated or not) are copyright 1996-2010 by Gibson Consulting.

Although we have tried hard to ensure the accuracy of everything in our web site, Gibson Consulting does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of the information herein. Gibson Consulting disclaims liability for errors or omissions in these materials and for their use or interpretation by others. Decisions based on information contained in Gibson Consulting's site are the sole responsibility of the visitor. Links to sites not maintained by Gibson Consulting are provided for your convenience and we are not responsible for anything therein. We also think it is silly to have to make statements like this, but that's modern society.

Gibson Consulting is sensitive to Internet copyright issues, and we have tried hard not to infringe on any such rights. Images we have downloaded and used in this site are either (1) definitely non-copyrighted government images, (2) things that seem to have been posted for anyone to use, or (3) things that are our own copyrighted creations. If we have inadvertently used something that is copyrighted by someone else, PLEASE LET US KNOW!

Gibson Consulting hereby grants permission to anyone to use any of the images on this site that we own (most of the fossils, Former Soviet Union Magnetic Maps, etc.) for any non-commercial purpose (not for sale or wholesale distribution in any manner). Credit would be appreciated! If you have questions as to which images are ours, please ask.

We wish to acknowledge ideas and formats for web page development contributed by our programmer associates, Dave Wilson and Bruce Hastings. We obtained several JavaScripts and DHTML scripts from The JavaScript Source and from Dynamicdrive.com, both excellent resources. A few buttons and similar graphics come from FG&A Free Buttons. Our site is designed, produced, and maintained by Dick Gibson.

Suggestions are always welcome.
