    Whenever you request a page through your browser data such as your IP address, browser and version, OS, date and time and the site from which you came are stored in a log file and/or database. This information cannot be used to identify specific individuals, and is only used for site administration, research and development, and anonymous user analysis. This information is kept on a secured virtual dedicated server.

    From time to time, the Administrators of this bulletin board may want to send you email notices. If you do not want to receive these notices, you may disable this option via your user control panel. Your email address will not be disclosed to any third party.

    Cookies

The email address will only be seen by moderators and administrators if the "Keep your email address viewable to other users when you post notes?" option is set to no. Cookies may be sent to your browser to enable automatic log-ins upon further visits, as well as for content customization.
