What Users Should Look out for to Protect One’s Personal Information

- After using our services, the members should log out and close the web browser. This is to protect the member’s personal information or communication from being disclosed to others in the event that the member shares a computer with others, or uses a computer at public places such as Internet Cafes, PC rooms or libraries.

Collection of Data & Information by Our ISP
Our Internet Service Provider (ISP) also collects certain information about your visit. It is the same information contained in a log file that we collect and analyze, i.e., the date and time of the visit, the user’s IP (internet protocol) address, the referring IP address or domain, and the files viewed on our web site (including HTML pages, graphics, etc.). In addition, our ISP has access to back-up files containing the personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide (even if your input fails). The ISP does not disclose, share, release, publish, disseminate, rent, or sell any personally identifiable information to any third parties, but does use the log files to analyze data in an aggregate form, which is not personally identifiable information.
