What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?
DO YOU COLLECT IP ADDRESSES?
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol” IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within Meetandbang.net, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed meetandbang.net. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of Meetandbang.net, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.
WHAT ARE COOKIES?
HOW DO YOU USE SINGLE-PIXEL GIFS?
Meetandbang.net may use single-pixel gif images, sometimes referred to as web bugs or web beacons, to count Web page accesses and gather some general statistical information. Meetandbang.net does not gather personal information through the use of these images. Our advertisers may use single-pixel gifs that can track personal information from cookies that may have been previously placed on a user’s computer by an advertiser.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO YOU COLLECT?
We may request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a contest or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to announcement lists or information about conferences and trade shows). Participation in contests or other promotions on Meetandbang.net is completely voluntary and you have a choice whether or not to disclose personal information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes.
Meetandbang.net also offers access to some services that require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification to you of products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail. We may share that information with our clients and they may also send you promotional materials. We may also use your IP address internally and share it with third parties.
We may from time to time send e-mail announcing new products and services. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you may receive postal mailings from Meetandbang.net or third party companies.
WILL YOU DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION YOU COLLECT TO OUTSIDE THIRD PARTIES?
Meetandbang.net will disclose personal information and/or an IP address:
To contact you regarding other products and services which may be of interest to you (including those we may offer jointly with other companies). At any time, however, you may opt out of such contact;
When required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Meetandbang.net;
Protect and defend the rights or property of Meetandbang.net of sites and related properties, or visitors to Meetandbang.net of sites and related properties;

When we have your consent to share the information;
When you use co-branded services within our network of sites, you grant us permission to pass your registration information back to that service partner. Their use of your information is subject to their applicable privacy policies.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT MY PRIVACY WHEN ONLINE?
Meetandbang.net does not collect or store any personal data of people from the European Union.
You should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to share. In order to avoid your e-mail address or other personal information from being gathered and used by others for inappropriate or harmful purposes, Meetandbang.net advises that you should be cautious about posting a real e-mail address or other personal information to newsgroups, chats, or other public forums.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Our webmasters safeguard all the information on our site by using industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encrypted servers. SSL codes the information transferred between you and the server, rendering it unreadable to anyone trying to intercept the information. Other media properties of Meetandbang.net do not use SSL and thereby do not offer a secure coded way to transfer information.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.
YOUR CONSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT
Please note that your use of Meetandbang.net is governed by your local jurisdiction.
