The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site, the page that referred you to our site, which pages you visited throughout our site, and other similar information.

We do not have a policy of retaining or archiving log files long term.


Our moderation and admin teams have access to certain information collected when you register, and when you visit the forums as a logged-in user, such as your username, registered email address, IP address(es) and other similar information.

They do not have access to the content of private messages. However, in keeping with similar messaging systems on other forums, you should assume that the private messaging system is inherently insecure, since ultimately all data is stored somewhere. It should not therefore be used to transmit confidential information.
