How and why we collect information
A confirmation e-mail will be sent to users who submit information from the site. This is done for the purpose of certifying the identity of the sender. To post submissions on the site from senders who may be fabricating their identities and/or submissions would be a disservice to other users.

Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we will not intentionally disclose your personal identification information to any third party without your permission. Clicking the appropriate radio button on the submission form indicates this preference. We reserve the right to make the personal information (excluding payment information) public if you do not indicate a preference for withholding that information. We will not be liable in cases of unintentional disclosure of your personal information or submissions.
