Privacy Statement

User Accounts

To create new content, or contribute to existing ones, you are required to register an account with an email address(es) and other personal information. We will not display, share, or sell your email address(es), or other personally identifiable information (see for examples) to others; non-identifiable information, such as gender, may be shared. Your email address may be used by iNetSelf to contact you for verification or support purposes, or notify you of updates you subscribe to. Personally identifiable information is visible to iNetSelf administrators, Mollom (anti-spam service), and law enforcement.

Non-Account Forms and Content

By posting content, you accept that your content and other personal details about you will be analyzed and stored for anti-spam and quality monitoring purposes, in accordance with Mollom's privacy policy:

iNetSelf content is hierarchical in nature, and access restrictions are controlled at the root level. Only the author of the root has this control. Unless you are the author of the root content, please be aware that any information that you submit through content forms, including personally identifiable information, may be publicly displayed on content pages at, or on websites not within our control. If you are unsure of the privacy settings for the root content and don’t want others to see such information, then don’t submit it.

As the editor of root content, you may establish a range of access restrictions to your material. The initial settings for individual content may allow outside search engines, indexes and third party sites to scan each content, create hyperlinks to individual content or distribute it further via feeds. If you change these settings, there is no guarantee that outside search engines will omit your content from its searches. Please check your default settings to discern the level of access the public has to your individual content.

If you contribute content, such as discussion comments, to any existing content, your contribution may be publicly displayed including personally identifiable information. Display of visitor content is determined by the discretion of the individual root content editors.

Each time you update your individual content, it may also send pings or feeds to sites that index or track newly updated content. These sites may publicly display a hyperlink to your content and the time that you updated it. Depending on root content access restrictions, your content may be published in XML feeds and email notifications, and content from or links to your content may be publicly displayed on third party sites.
