PRIVACY

We have established this privacy policy to explain to you how your information is protected, collected and used, which may be updated from time to time.

We will provide notice of materially significant changes to this privacy policy by posting notice on the site.

Protecting your privacy

We don't share your information with third parties for any purposes other than those listed below in “Circumstances in which we may release information”. Account information is password-protected. Keep your password safe. Forums use basic webserver authentication. ALWAYS log out after you are done.

We do not knowingly collect any information from persons under the age of 13. If we learn that a posting is by a person under the age of 13, we will remove that post.

We or people who post on our site, may provide links to third party websites, which may have different privacy practices. We are not responsible for, nor have any control over, the privacy policies of those third party websites, and encourage all users to read the privacy policies of each and every website visited.

Data we collect

We do not collect data that you do not share in your profile, and this data will not be shared with a third party for any reason.

Our site does not store credit card information.

We may collect personal information if you provide it in feedback or comments, post it on our forums, or if you contact us directly. Please do not post any personal information on our forums or profile that you expect to keep private.

Our web logs collect standard web log entries for each page served, including your IP address, page URL, and timestamp. Web logs help us to diagnose problems with our server, to administer the site, and to otherwise provide our service to you.

Data we store

All forum postings are stored in our database, even after "deletion," and may be archived elsewhere. Our web logs and other records are stored indefinitely. Subscribers can manage their profiles by selecting the "edit profile" link.

Although we make good faith efforts to store the information in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security.

Circumstances in which we may release information

We may disclose information about users if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process.

We may also disclose information about its users to law enforcement officers or others, in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to: enforce our Terms of Use; respond to claims that any posting or other content violates the rights of third-parties; or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of our site, its users or the general public.
