Some of the personal information we request from you is required in order for you to use our services. If you do not wish to provide such personal information to us, you are not obligated to, but as a result you may not be able to use the particular service.

Please remember that any information you disclose in these public forum or community areas becomes public information and is immediately accessible to other users, so it is important for you to carefully consider what, if any, personal information you reveal in these areas. We may use information disclosed by you in this way to promote our products and services in our advertising communications.
