  • IP Address – Your IP Address is a unique number assigned by your service provider (ISP) which identifies your computer. We collect this information mainly to prevent abuse of our systems and our users. An example is our Newsletter signup page. We collect your IP address along with other information during this process.
  • E-Mail Address – Your email address is required to verify your identity and prevent abuse of our forum, newsletter and other systems.
  • Personal Details – This includes things like first and last name, location etc. This data is only collected for the forum and newsletter sections of our website as both require verification of your identity to prevent abuse of our members and server system.
