When we discovered, for example, that visitors from over 50 countries view this site every month, we expanded our databases and rum listings to include more countries. In another case, we decided not to use the latest Internet publishing software, based on the browsers used by our global audience. We want to stay up to date, but not so far ahead of our visitors that they can't see what we publish.

Digital Real Networks doesn't and can't tell us, for example, your email address unless you sign our registries.
