Information we collect In order to register on the Site, we require you to supply a valid email address and you will be asked to create a unique username. You also have the option of supplying your full name, country in which you live, your area location within that country, your own website address and a personal photo. If you supply these, all of them except your full name will be displayed publicly on the Site. However, we will not display your full name either publicly or to other members.

All of this information, except your home address and telephone number, will be displayed on your “My Profile” page and therefore available for other registered members of the Site to view. You are allowed to upload an avatar, which will be shown on your “My Profile” page and also next to all your posts or topics you create; in other words, it will be available for public view. You can also upload pictures and information about your own car(s) and (after administration approval) this information will be displayed in the Featured Cars section and viewable by all visitors of the Site. As such, if you wish to obscure the registration number of the vehicle you should do so before uploading the photo.
