DTAC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. DTAC only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
