Flashladybug Privacy Policy (August 26, 2006)

At Flashladybug, we realize the importance of privacy and the importance that users place on privacy. *Note: Despite the humorous language, we really do mean what we say here when it is stripped.

This is a summary of the Privacy Policy. If you wish to read the full privacy policy, please go here (http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html).

Flashladybug collects information from users through an absolutely voluntary method. Users were not, are not, and will never be, forced to provide information. We can attest to the accuracy of this, by providing evidence that at no point were users subjected to cruel and unusual torture forbidden by US and International Law.

Services that Flashladybug provides may be accessed without providing information with the exceptions of commenting and chatting functions on the website. Access of the information is freely given and at no point will it be revoked.

Information provided by users will never by given or sold to email spammers or posted on ebay and transferred to the highest bidder. We do however remind users that giving emails to websites without fully understanding their uses for it is unwise and downright insane.

Reasons for requiring information for certain services: Such services are prone to unidentifiable traces of spam. Commenting spam and chat spam can be, to a degree, eliminated by asking users to provide a valid contact email. No other information is required, and fake names or addresses are awarded points for creativity if the user so chooses.

Questions to this privacy policy may be posed to our automatic telephone answering bot at the number 911. Please note that at no point should 911 be called unless you have a real reason. The second method of contacting us is through email. You may email me at blin100@gmail.com. You may email the webmaster at blin100@gmail.com. You may email the owner of flashladybug at blin100@gmail.com. Do you get the point? No, you do not: You may email the master of flashladybug at brian@flashladybug.

And of course, posting a question in the comments area or the forums, or the chat area are also welcomed. We must stress that these three forms of communication do require a valid email address, however, we would appreciate anyone who does register.
