This forum maintains the highest level of privacy. Server and forum logs are switched off, so there is not even a theoretical possibility of anonymous forum users being traced or their IP addresses being revealed. However, the forum software does record IP addresses of registered users, so their privacy cannot be guaranteed in the same way.
