We neither solicit nor gather user information. This site is run by a team of volunteers with over 24 years experience working in manufacturing, quality and product development. Our team will spare no effort to ensure that the information here is correct – however, we could sometimes be wrong or make mistakes (your help in correcting these is appreciated). When you are doing research, please check up on your sources. Check at least a couple of different websites, read books and articles, talk to your teachers and experts in what you are researching.
