I view my server access logs. This data contains your IP addresses, which browser that you use, which operating system that you use. This data helps me see if who or what is visiting the site and how the site is being used. It also helps me to see if there has been any errors on the site.

I also use Google Analytics, Awstats and Bravenet which gathers data about who uses the site. These tools provides me reports on how site is being used.

If you sent an e-mail to me via the form on the site, I do not pass on your e-mail address to third parties without asking you first if I can pass on your details. All information in e-mails that sent to me is treated with confidial unless otherwise stated.

I also use a piece of software on the site that hides e-mail addresses from spammers. To see it work, find a page on the site that has an e-mail address on it and right click then click on view source. For example, ycyrffgroupie@gmail.com and the code becomes

ycyrffgroupie@gm<a id="__cf_email__" 
href="http://cloudflare.com/email-protection.html" 
class="29484045074a4644">[email protected]</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
/* <;![CDATA[ */
(function(){try{var s,a,i,j,r,c,l=document.getElementById("__cf_email__");
a=l.className;if(a){s='';r=parseInt(a.substr(0,2),16);
for(j=2;a.length-j;j+=2){c=parseInt(a.substr(j,2),16)^r;s+=String.fromCharCode(c);
}s=document.createTextNode(s);l.parentNode.replaceChild(s,l);}}catch(e){}})();
/* ]]> */
</script>
