If you submit information to us and we display that information publicly (like a blog comment or discussion forum post) we use third party tools such as Akismet to help control spam. We send your personal information (such as IP address, username, email address, and content you are posting) through automated systems to check it for spam. We may use your IP address to make a best guess as to where you are from and we may display that information with your profile or near your contributed content. For example we may make a guess as to the country you are posting from and post that near your username.
Should we feel you are violating our posting rules or trying to spam our users through comments or discussions then we may share your information (for example the email you used to register and your IP address) with third parties.
We also use third party advertising companies to serve ads. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about products and services that may be of interest to you. They may not use your name, address, email address, nor telephone number from these visits.
