Visitor IP Logging

IP logging is used for various reasons on the PCTechGuide website, particularly when members make posts on the forums. This is for security purposes, but visitors’ IP addresses may also be used for geo-location.

Be assured that this is anonymous, and is not used to track or trace any individuals with the exception of any site abuse. Site abuse may be through hacking attempts, misuse of the forums, or site harvesting. In these cases IP blocking will be affected, and, depending on the severity of the offence, IP tracing may be performed leading to possible further action.
