The statistical data gathered can be disclosed as and when the HTNet webmaster(s) see fit. Usually whole IP addresses will not be disclosed (unless deemed fit, for example, disclosing spammers’ IP addresses to be blacklisted by others in the Internet community). However, they can be grouped and categorised in subnets and/or subdomains, and disclosed in that form for statistical purposes.
- Your name/pseudonym

The email address recorded in this manner, is only required by HTNet‘s content management software to post comments and/or to email feedback to the webmaster(s). HTNet‘s webmaster(s) will not use the email addresses gathered by this method in any way whatsoever, unless the visitor specifically requests the webmaster(s) to contact them via email. Furthermore, these email addresses will never be displayed to anyone other than HTNet‘s webmaster(s).
Visitors are not encouraged to enter email addresses in the comments field, as they will be displayed as is and could be harvested by spambots.
