INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT Whether you are a Company Site visitor or a registered member, we take certain steps to protect your information. Collection of information is usually grouped into two categories: Personal Information, which is information identifiable to a specific member (further defined below), and aggregate information, which is general demographic information that does not identify any individual member. We may use or disclose aggregate information for any purpose.
User Content Please note that whenever you publicly disclose information about yourself online (e.g., through email, in forums, message boards, chat areas, or similar web pages), such information can be collected and used by people that you do not know. Posting personal information in public places may result in unsolicited communications, including unwanted email messages. Always be smart about the information you provide online.

Not everyone on the site should be trusted. Community based internet sites are just like neighborhoods except that they are online - make sure your teens take caution in interacting with members and non members. Suggest they talk to you if they want to meet an online friend in person, and if you think it's safe, make sure that any planned meeting occurs in public with friends or a trusted adult present. Talk to your teens about the dangers of giving personal information to strangers. Although we are a community based site and we make every effort to remove inappropriate members your teens should understand the dangers of giving out personal information to strangers. This is a free site that anyone can access and personal info should not be given to strangers. Don't let your teens give personal information to strangers online!
Consider Utilizing Parental Control Software Software is available that allows parents to add controls that block certain websites. The software can also filter content so that parents can prevent children from viewing information that they do not think is appropriate. Many of these options are available to you for free. If you perform an online search using "parental control software you will see your options.
Tips for Teens Our site is a fun and cool place for you to meet new people and express yourself. Before you get started we recommend that you read the following guidelines that are designed to help you have fun and be safe while on our site.
Think before you submit! This is a pubic environment and anyone will be able to see what you add to your personal page. Do you want your friends, your teachers, your parents or potential employers to see what you have written and uploaded? Think about this before you add anything.
Tips for Daters Although most of our members are serious about dating and committing to serious relationships, there may be some people who join the site for other reasons. We put together this guide to give you tips on how to protect yourself so that your online dating experience can be enjoyable and safe.
Use your common sense and trust your instinct. Meeting members online for the first time is just like meeting a stranger in a club or bar. Think about what you would do or tell someone about yourself when you first meet them. Use the same guidelines and the same common sense when you first meet someone on the internet. Take care in giving out your real name, your address or phone number. Be cautious about how much information you share when you meet someone new. Why not start by sending a note, an IM or an email from a third-party email address such as Yahoo or Hotmail. This will allow you to take time to get to know the person and will help you determine if they are trustworthy. Trust yourself. If it seems too good to be true it probably is. Although we have great and wonderful members you should be wary of those who may be making up grand stories to trick you into believing they are someone they are not.
