Communications with Others
The Site may allow you to contribute to one or more blogs or forums or communicate by means of online functions.
Nothing requires you to disclose your identity to others. If you choose to disclose your identity to third parties using any Site function or service, you do so at your own risk. Web Site Owner is not responsible for the privacy or security of any information, personal or otherwise, which you may choose to communicate or exchange using the functionality of the Site.
Each item of information or any materials you contribute for such purposes are your “Public Content.” Public Content must be content and information that you have a right to disclose and transfer and must not violate any other person’s privacy or intellectual property rights.

When a Site’s registration/order form asks users to enter financial information (such as credit card number) that information is encrypted and is protected during transmission through the Internet using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software. You should see the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked or open when you are just surfing.
