Your email address and privacy
We will not use your email address to contact you other than in relation to administration of your account. We will also not pass your email address on to any third party, other than in the exceptional circumstances that we are compelled to do so.
You can choose to opt in to our mailing list, but will easily be able to opt out later if you wish.
You do need to keep the email address associated with your account valid as it will be needed if you lose your password or require information to be automatically emailed to you by the site.
Do I have to register?
No. You can still access all of the publicly available areas of the website without needing to register an account. However, you will be unable to post comments or participate in the discussion forum.
