There is also information relative to your computer hardware and/or software that may be automatically collected by PIN. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by PIN for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of our website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through PIN public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. PIN does not read any of your private online communications.
PIN encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from PIN so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. Keep in mind, PIN is not responsible for the privacy statements or content of these other websites.
