Keep in mind that some information such as IP Address and hostname are generated with your visit and may be accessed at times. This cannot identify you as the IP Address you generate with will be different from your physical location, such as your geographical location which may say you’re in another city or not anywhere close to you. This is something that is unique to your ISP and your Browser, and therefore we are not able to prevent it.
In addition to the IP Address and hostname becoming available, any comments you make may leave behind additional information, such as a name, email address, etc. If you are not comfortable revealing your name in the comments, do not do so. The email address can only be seen by administration and may be contacted if needed.

What do we collect?
Common information such as IP Address, hostname, browser information, and where you have been reading may become available to the staff at any time. This information will not be used to harass, slander, stalk, or otherwise perform maliciously illegal actions against others. This may be accessed at anytime for security or statistical purposes. We will not access them in intent of stealing your personal information nor are we going to ensure that any degree of your safety is violated. That’s just wrong.
The information you provide such as your IP Address and hostname are public information as anyone else can access them as you browse through the web, as well as looking them up yourself using sites such as “What is my IP?” and “What is my hostname?” Even Google has that information locked up in their safe.
If you do not wish for the information to be collected, do not at all participate or access any TechPress related resources and immediately cease any attempt of accessing the resource.
If you are a victim of a breach, such as having an active account to this blog, you will be given an email message, or if I have access by other means of communication, swiftly notified. I may not be the one to deliver the message if I am not the first to be aware. TechPress is a shared community between three main individuals.
