HFH can gather two types of information about users:

An IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the internet, so that your computer can be identified by the main computers, known as "Web servers".

HFH can collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregated information to third parties authorised by us, and to audit the use of our website.
