Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to PCTestBench.com’s website that choose to interact with PCTestBench.com in ways that require PCTestBench.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PCTestBench.com gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, PCTestBench.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with PCTestBench.com. PCTestBench.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Like many other Web sites, PCTestBench makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and the number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
