Like most website operators, this website collects
non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and
servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language
preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.
The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to
better understand how visitors use the website.
This website also collects potentially personally-identifying information
like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses but this information is not used to
identify its visitors.
Some visitors to the website choose to interact with it in ways that
require it to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and
type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For
example, visitors who use a forum are asked to provide a username and
email address. In each case, such information is only collected insofar as
is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s
interaction with the website. Visitors can always refuse to supply
personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent
them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
