Online Information Gathering
Types of information collected by this site: Information collected online is often defined as being either personally identifiable or anonymous:

• Anonymous information

Personally identifiable information
The choice of how much of your personally identifiable information is disclosed to Syntax Integration Limited is left completely up to you. The only way we know something about you is when you use a personalized service, such as the “Members Only” area or the Security mailing list, or you voluntarily disclose your information such as a credit card number, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, demographic, and other personal and financial information when you transact business at our site, communicate on the site by sending us an e-mail, or fill in a form.
In some cases, such as on our list services, discussion boards, or other forums, any personal information provided may become publicly available to our members and possibly the larger general public. Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose such personal information (e.g. user name and e-mail address as used in a signature line), that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties.
Please note that if you are an active member of Syntax Integration Limited, you may have been assigned a membership token and password to be used for accessing the “Members Only” areas of our site. This information is maintained by Syntax Integration Limited and is used solely to allow you to access the “Members Only” area.
Collection of IP addresses: When visiting any Internet site your unique address, called an “IP address”, is recorded. The amount of information about users made available from their IP addresses varies greatly, for instance depending on how they are connected to the Internet. Syntax Integration Limited does not release any information about the collection of this address to any third parties. Syntax Integration Limited archives the logging of IP addresses for security reasons.
Syntax Integration Limited collects and archives basic logging for site stats. These log files show the daily number of visitors to our site and its subdirectories, the daily requests we receive for particular files, what server locations those requests come from, including from which countries, as well as the domain name of the server or browser accessing the Syntax Integration Limited site. These aggregated statistics are primarily used internally to provide better services to the public.
Syntax Integration Limited does not sell, rent, lend or give personally identifiable information collected from you on Syntax Integration Limited’s web site to marketers. The one exception is that, although unlikely, Syntax Integration Limited may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information. In these cases, we will provide this information as and to the extent we have determined that the disclosure of any such information is appropriate.
