I think this is an important question concerning privacy and anonymity. Could you please tell me whether IQ keeps a record of previous email addresses (such as when a change is performed by the user)? Do you keep history of changes of other user information also?
Thank you very much for IQ! (life saver).

The Inward Quest FAQ states:
On a daily basis, Inward Quest attracts a constant stream of spammers, trolls, bots, script kiddies, even people who don't like the information available, and we have fairly sophisticated and effective counter-measures in place to deal with it all. Hence it is a relatively clean and noise-free site as compared to many on the internet. We do not disclose what specific information we use, store and track in order to mitigate these disruptive elements otherwise it would provide information to them that would allow them to negate our systems. It would be better for you to assume that you cannot hide any activities/information from the site administrators.
But I would also add that the site administrators have no interest at all in any information provided to and logged by the Inward Quest system except to mitigate the disruptive elements I've mentioned. No ordinary user of this site has any access to any information except that which you have provided publically. We are interested in providing an open & honest, easy-to-access, hostility-free place on the internet for people to submit/gather/exchange relevant information. Beyond that, we have no interest in who you are or what you do.
