This website does not store any information that would, on its own, allow us to identify any individual user of this website. Cookies are not shared with any third parties. Cookies that are used by this website are used solely on a per session basis or to enable access to the Social Media addons. More specifically, the Cookies we use are to:
- Maintain your session, such as keeping you logged in for the duration of your visit.
- Temporarily store your topic "unread" markers before they are saved to our database.
- Anonymously measure use of this website in order to improve the experience for all users.
- Submit data to your Facebook and Twitter account(s), should this be enabled in your settings area. (Please see their Privacy Policies for more information as to how they use your information)
With the exception of number 4 (which can be disabled in your settings area), these Cookies are required by this website in order to allow it to function correctly.

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available in our footer and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested, such as on our logon screen and registration page.
As with all websites, log files are maintained of all requests for files on this website's web servers. Log files capture your IP address, but do not capture any other personal information. This IP address is automatically recognised by our web servers and can only be used to personally identify you by your Internet Service Provider, and not by the administrators of this website.
Protecting the privacy of children is especially important for us. Although we do not restrict our registration systems to a specific age group, no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13. If we come across a member of this age we will do our best to remove any personally identifiable information about this member.
