Communications from the Site
Account Administration Messages
We send all new paid members a welcoming email to verify their email address and password. Members who choose our monthly auto-renew feature will also receive an email message if their credit card is about to expire. We also send a final message to expired members just before their account is permanently erased. Users cannot opt-out of this type of messages, though they can deactivate their account.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is interrupted for a prolonged period we might send all users an email message. Users cannot opt-out of this type of messages, though they can deactivate their account.
In response to a user’s direct inquiry, we will send email providing assistance with their account or their use of the web site.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our web site.
