Information submitted to®
uPromote® gathers information about our customers that allows us to offer compelling and easily accessible online content in a manner that provides personal privacy protection as well. Occasionally we ask you to provide us information such as your name, email address, or what your interests and hobbies are. You never have to answer these questions although this may limit what services we can offer you.® gathers two types of information: information users submit to us and information not directly submitted by users.

There are two types of user-submitted information we collect: Public and Private. We define Public information as personal information that may be displayed on the site, such as interests or anonymous user name (screen name) but cannot be linked to a particular user. Private information is defined as any information that allows others to contact a user other than through® or allows the collection of information about the user other than what is displayed on the site.

Much of this information is optional, and meant to be seen by members and visitors to the site but cannot be used to identify a specific member by name, address, etc.
