  1. When you register, we ask you to supply an accurate email address and to specify your geographical location. You may chose, however, to hide your email address from the public, in which case it is held in the strictest of confidence. Your location does not have to be specific, but is requested in an effort to help members become better acquainted.

When you register as a member of CF, our Web server will send a "cookie" to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk nor read cookie files created by other Web sites. Cookies do not damage your system.

IP Adresses
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the CF Network, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the CF Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement.
