Setting individual permissions on a page

Can you have permissions on a page where only the logged in user can see that page and nobody else (except the farm administrator)?

Pages are items. As such you can set item level permissions on them like everything else. Just don't do it too much as it's a maintenance headache and doesn't scale well.

Let me clarify:

HR is looking to have people type in their results from something.  The person can only access and view this page with a list or form on it.  No one else can view this page but the owner of the page.  HR and person's page can be viewed.  There are 100 employees, so there would be 100 lists, but on one page.  How to implement this sort of thing?

I am thinking the OOB SharePoint surveys maybe.

SharePoint has a "My Site" with both public and private facing content.  

Creating a single page on everyone's mySite and including the HR security group shouldn't be too onerous.

That stated, it would far easier/less overhead to create a single page somewhere that loads content dynamically based on the user login.

You can use a list for this. There are settings that restrict users to seeing only their item (page).  Also, you can use a custom display page with a filtered view so that the users only see their information.

Hope that helps...
