We collect certain information necessary to assist us in operating the Site. We log your IP address, ISP (Internet Service Provider), Internet browser and operating system, the time of your visit, and the pages that you viewed. We log this information to assist us in diagnosing server problems, administering our website, and tracking usage statistics. Your IP address is provided to you by your Internet Service Provider and may be constant or may vary each time you access the Internet, depending on the type of Internet service you have. We do not try to identify you through your IP address and it would be extremely difficult for us to do so.
We may provide you with the opportunity to register with the Site. The benefits of registration may include the ability to post messages and other information in our Interactive Areas, and the ability to personalize the website to best serve your needs. If you choose to register, then you will provide certain information to us. That information may or may not be personally identifiable. For example, you may be required to provide a username and password, but as long as your username is not your real name, we will not be able to identify you personally.
