Side 7 collects this type of information about users:
When you apply for a membership to our site, Side 7 uses the information provided by you to create your account. Additionally, Side 7 uses the e-mail address you provide to contact you for official purposes only. Side 7 will never divulge information about an individual user to a third party (except to comply with any applicable laws).
Membership application requires three pieces of information: a user-selected account username, a birthdate, and a valid and functioning e-mail address. The username is used for login and account management purposes, the birthdate is used for statistical analysis and birthday bonuses provided by the Side 7 system, and the e-mail address is necessary for the administrative staff to contact site members about issues, as well as password retrieval and alerts of comments or other messages they've received by other site members.
In order to provide users with the highest level of technical support, Side 7 requires visitors provide information via a form that assists to define and clarify their technical support request. The following information is reqested: First and last names, e-mail address, problem type, problem description, uploaded filename, error messages, operating system, browser, internet connection type, and whether or not you've read the FAQ. Only the first and last names, e-mail address, problem type, and problem description are required so that we may provide the best service possible. E-mail sent to our technical support address are kept for support reasons only, and no information will be divulged to any third-party.
All conversation that takes place on Side 7's chat server is logged. The logs are kept for our own administrative purposes, and to make sure that conversational content stays within our guidelines.
All account information that is used by the message board is derived from the main site, and its accounts. There is no seperation of account information between the primary site and the message board. Anonymous posting to the message board is prohibited to prevent harassment issues.
Any information provided by the user to our oekaki software for account management is kept private and is used only to protect against identity theft, and for administrative purposes.
Side 7 uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in the site, whether to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users, or to provide repeat visitors with better service based on their previous experience in our site.
Additionally, information provided for the creation and maintenance of an account on the Side 7 web site is automatically used in conjunction with the message board (Forums), and the e-mail address is added to our in-house listserv. The listserv is a private, very-low-volume, announcement-only e-mail mailing list that is used by Side 7 Admins to alert the members of important issues on the site, or bring their attention to new features.
Side 7 may use the above-described information to tailor our content to better suit our visitor's needs and help our admins better understand our audience's demographics. This is essential to keeping our service free. We do not share information about individual users with any third party, except with a user's express consent. Side 7 will never sell or share private information to third-party or advertising firms. (Side 7 will divulge information as necessary to comply with applicable laws.)
