When registering on this site you will be asked for your name and email address. You may optionally specify a nickname, which we will display instead of your real name.

We collect personal information from you only when you register yourself on the site, or when you are registered by us.

We require your email address to:

• allow you to reset your password;
• allow you to opt-in to notifications related to posts on this site (e.g., follow-ups to your posts on the forums).

Do we use cookies?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to remember whether you are logged in. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can improve the site in the future (for example, by identifying the most and least popular parts of the site).

We use cookies to:
• Remember whether you are logged in, as you move around the site.
• Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings.

If you disable cookies in your browser, you will not be able to remain logged in to the site and so some content will be inaccessible to you.
