The information enables us to ensure that aspects of our contract our not violated, such as ensuring that more than one account is not created. This is necessary in order to protect other registered users from those who would seek to utilize anonymity in order to harm or exploit them and escape restrictions so that they may do it again. It is furthermore necessary in order to retain potentially vital records in enabling our users to seek recompense through the court system.
