In keeping with our open process, Renniks Publications may maintain publicly accessible archives for the majority of our activities. For example, posting an email to any of Renniks Publications’-hosted public mail lists or discussion forums, subscribing to one of our newsletters or registering for one of our public meetings may result in your email address becoming part of the publicly accessible archives.
On some sites, anonymous users are allowed to post content and/or participate in forum discussions. In such a case, since no user name can be associated with such a user, the IP address number of a user is used as an identifier. When posting content or messages to a Operators site anonymously, your IP address may be revealed to the public.
If you are a registered member of Renniks’ website or email list, you should be aware that some items of your personal information may be visible to other members and to the public. Renniks Publications’ member databases may retain information about your name, e-mail address, company affiliation (if an organizational member), and such other personal address and identifying data as you choose to supply. That data may be visible to other of Renniks Publications’ members and to the public. Your name, e-mail address, and other information you may supply also may be associated in Renniks Publications’ publicly accessible records with Renniks Publications’ various committees, working groups, and similar activities that you join, in various places, including:
(i) the permanently-posted attendance and membership records of those activities;
(ii) documents generated by the activity, which may be permanently archived; and,
(iii) along with message content, in the permanent archives of Renniks Publications’ e-mail lists, which also may be public.
Please remember that any information (including personal information) that you disclose in public areas of our web site, such as forums, message boards, and news groups, becomes public information that others may collect, circulate, and use. Because we cannot and do not control the acts of others, you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose information about yourself or others in public forums such as these.
If you do not want your personal information collected and used by Renniks Publications, please do not subscribe for any of Renniks Publications’ websites or email lists.
