We do not have access to or control the use of such technology by third parties, including the information they collect or how they use such information.
 
Online Shopping Services
Company Sites may offer shopping services either directly or through a retailer that operates a service under contract with us. If a Site offers shopping or other commercial services, the customer order form will ask you to give us certain Personal Information. We will use the financial information that you provide only to bill you for products and services that you request.

Other Third Parties
Our employees, agents and contractors must have a need-to-know business reason to obtain access to your Personal Information. We may share your Personal Information with those who help us manage or provide content or other services for the Company Sites (e.g., forum administration, order fulfillment, statistical analyses, data processing), or with outside contractors, agents or sponsors who help us with the administration, judging and prize fulfillment aspects of contests, promotions and sweepstakes. Such outside contractors, agents or sponsors may temporarily store some information on their servers, but they may only use your Personal Information to provide the Company Sites with a specific service and not for any other purpose.

We may also provide your Personal Information to a third party where you have chosen to receive certain information and have been notified that the fulfillment of such a request requires sharing your Personal Information. We also may share your Personal Information with any affiliated companies and partners if we have a business reason to do so.

Tips for Parents
If your teenager has just recently started using the internet we encourage you to talk to them about their online experience. You can use these guidelines to start the conversation with your teenager. Please review the Terms of Use with your teenager to ensure that you both understand the rules to which our members (and by extension, you as the parent of a teen under 18 years of age) are subject. 
 
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.
