Information Collected and How It Is Used...
The database application used for our online bulletin board stores uniquely identifiable information if a user chooses to register, which is required if one wishes to submit posts. This allows postings to be properly cross-referenced with a unique user, and allows that user to configure the board appearance to suit his personal preferences. It also allows the board administrator to remove abusive postings and/or block future postings from a particular user if it is deemed necessary to preserve civility in our online community. The submission of personal information during registration or setting of preferences is not necessary, and is purely up to the discretion of the user
Name and email address information is collected and retained from those who opt to subscribe to our periodic email newsletter or register as a user on our online bulletin board. This information may be accessed, corrected, or deleted by sending an email request to us at email@example.com. Likewise, any other requests or disputes regarding how your personal information is used on this site should be directed to our email address.
