Hardware.Info uses the collected data to offer visitors the following services:

1) To prevent registration by spambots. Upon registration, we require a valid email address to confirm the registration. This is necessary to prevent registration by so-called 'bots'. A working email address is also needed to receive notifications of price alarms, if you choose to receive those.

2) To mail you our newsletter. If you register for our newsletter, using a separate registration process, we will use your email address to send you a daily or weekly newsletter featuring the latest updates at Hardware.Info, such as new reviews, news items and tested products.

3) To further develop Hardware.Info. Information regarding the user of our site and feedback we receive from visitors help us to further develop and improve our site. For this purpose Hardware.Info at times will do visitor research in the shape of questionnaires. The outcome of these is of course confidential and solely used internally.

4) To enable you to share your experiences regarding products and online shops. Should you decide to write a product review or shop review, you do this using your Hardware.Info account. You can use your own name for this, but you can also create an alias. While we welcome the views and opinions of our visitors, we reserve the right to remove reader contributions that do not adhere to the site conditions for use.

5) To register participants in a contest. If you respond to a contest, we may request your name, address and email address. These are used solely for the purposes of the contest, to announce winners and contact these in person.
