This site provides discussion forums which are available to the public. Please be aware, that whenever you post personal information online this information can be collected and used by others.
As is typical, we log http requests to our server. This means that we know the originating IP (e.g. 18.104.22.168) address of an agent requesting a URL. We do not log the the specific identity of visitors. We occasionally analyze the log files to determine which files are most requested and the previous site or user agent which prompted the request. Our logging is passive; we do not use technologies such as cookies to maintain any information on users.
We also log requests to our search and cgi scripts. This data is only used for administration and researching the efficacy of our tools.
Logged information is not disclosed outside of www.mountainbike.co.nz site personnel, with the exception that; should the New Zealand Police request our log files - we will fully co-operate. Aggregate (completely non-identifying) statistics generated from these logs may be reported to interested parties. The logs may be permanently archived.
Paul Kennett reserves the right to change our policy from time to time. A revised policy will apply to information collected after the date the policy is changed.
