The Information We Collect.We collect Personal Information and Anonymous Information about you.
Personal InformationWe collect Personal Information when you knowingly provide it to us. In order to use, access, or receive certain Services, you may be required to complete the applicable registration form accessible on the Site. For example, to become a Registered User you must provide your first and last name and email address. In addition, we collect Personal Information when you provide it through your creation of Popplet boards or your participation in discussion forums, surveys and/or sweepstakes, or when you correspond with us.
In addition, our Registered Users can invite other users to use the Services by entering their name and email address. It is possible that we may get your name and email address from one of our Registered Users.
The Ways We Use Information.We use Personal Information that you submit to us to administer your account, control access to the Site and Services, communicate with you, respond to your requests, provide Services, improve the quality of the Site and Services, facilitate invitations to use the Services and provide you with other information that may be useful or interesting to you. Such information may include regular newsletters and marketing emails, including contest entries and surveys. You can opt out of receiving newsletters from the Site by clicking the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of each email. Please note that even if you unsubscribe or opt-out, we may still send you Site and Service related emails.
We may also use your Personal Information to create Anonymous Information records by excluding information (such as your name or email address) that makes the information personally identifiable to you. We may use these records, and other Anonymous Information, to analyze usage patterns so that we may enhance the Site or Services.

To third parties to whom you ask us to send Personal Information, including those to whom you send an invitation;
We may disclose Anonymous Information to:
Third party vendors who may help us enhance or provide the Site or Services; or
To third parties to whom you ask us to send Personal Information.
In addition, any information which you post to a Popplet board (unless contained in a private Popplet Board that you have not shared with anyone), or to our discussion forums or otherwise choose to make publicly available, including your Personal Information, may be disclosed and available to all users who have access to that portion of the Site or Services, and is therefore no longer private. By using these our Services, you agree that we are not responsible for any such information that you disclose or communicate, and any disclosures you make are at your own risk.
How You Can Update, Correct or Delete Your Information.
Updating and Correcting.You may update your display name or password by emailing us at email@example.com from your email address on record or, if you are a Registered User, by editing your profile. Subsequent uses or disclosures of information by us will reflect those changes, but we have no ability to update any information previously disclosed to any third-party. Your Personal Information is necessary in order for us to send you newsletters or provide you access to the Services; therefore, if you delete such necessary information we may not be able to provide you certain Services.
Deleting.If you wish to have your Personal Information removed from our databases, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org from your email address on record and let us know what Personal Information you want deleted. You may request deletion of your Personal Information by us, but please note that we may be required (by law or otherwise) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete Personal Information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives.
Children Under 13.Protecting the privacy of all users is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 13 years old, and no part of the Site or Services is designed to attract people under 13 years old.
