All required information is used to provide users with services on our site for which they have expressed interest. It is optional for the user to provide location information (such as home and work addresses), but encouraged so we can provide a more personalised experience on our site and services.

6. Sharing Data
6.1 We share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. Aggregated demographic information is not linked to any information that can identify any individual person.
6.2 We partner with various third parties to provide specific services.

10.1 txtNation takes every precaution to protect our users' information. However, we cannot guarantee this and you should not expect, that personally identifiable information or private communications will remain private under all circumstances. For example, third parties ("hackers") may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or stored information. We do not assume any responsibility or liability for any information you submit to or receive from txtNation. We also do not assume any responsibility or liability for your own or a third party's use or misuse of information transmitted or received during use of the site or service.
10.2 At present, we do not collect sensitive information such as credit card numbers. At the point in the future that we do so, we will encrypt that information, and protect it with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.
10.3 We also use commercially reasonable efforts to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they must do to ensure our customers' information is protected.
11. Special Offers
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter.

12. Choice / Opt Out
12.1 Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt out of receiving these communications by emailing Technical Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
12.2 Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
