This policy exists to alert you that our sites may directly and/or because of the inclusion of third party applications and advertisements use web beacons, collect IP addresses, and pass and read cookies to and from your computer/browsers. The use of these technologies is to track the movement of users throughout the site, to keep registered users logged in while they are on the site, and to keep count of visitors. Third party applications such as those provided by Google (Analytics, Adsense, etc..) are also using these technologies for tracking and providing their services. Third parties may be including the use of other tracking technologies on our site that we are not aware of at the time of this disclosures creation. These technologies and those we have already mentioned may be used for other purposes as well.
Your browser or other software on your computer may give you options about allowances you can make on the acceptance or denial of those technologies (such as cookies). Disabling cookies and other associated technologies may negatively effect your browsing experience on sites by preventing some of the functions from performing correctly (for example logins may not work correctly).
In addition this site requires registration to participate. The only required fields in registration are a user name and email. The primary purpose for the email is to help you if you need a password reset or to contact you if there is an issue with your account. Email is not distributed or sold to third parties. If you specifically opt-in, you may receive news and announcements about this sites or other related sites owned by us (we expect this kind of email to be extremely rare.)
As this is a community site, you also have the option to receive emails from other users and disclose information about yourself to others in an optional profile created during registration. We do not monitor these emails or profiles, and strongly recommend that users under the age of 18 do not opt-in to receiving this information and do not provide information about their age in their profile. This is a general use site. Users under the age of 13 who disclose their age in their profile, comments or elsewhere on this site may have their accounts and/or information provided deleted by us as required by COPPA.
