By private information we refer to your REAL name, home address, email address, telephone number(s) and IP address.

We only need your email address and IP to use on our service to identify you and contact/alert. Email addresses are also used to retrive lost passwords and loging in to the service.Your email address will not be made publicly available. We may track your use of our service using your IP address and account for our own statistical reasons such as dates logged in and times etc.
