When a web page is submitted for addition to
the SURFSAFELY.COM directory, description
information is collected from that page to help us index it correctly. Email addresses
are added to our link records only if supplied voluntarily during submission.
Under normal circumstances, nothing is done with this email address other than
to keep it on file as a contact for that web site and in rare cases to notify
them of changes in the status of their listings in our directory. Additionally,
if a user voluntarily supplies their email address when submitting a site, that
person will receive a confirmation email from our autoresponder with details of
their submission results.
We have begun to see a phenomenon
where people were receiving "replies" from our autoresponder
because someone else used their email address when submitting a
site to our directory. We no longer allow the practice of using
someone else's email address for confirmation during submission!
Attempting to do so will result in an error. Only addresses at the
domain being submitted will be allowed or no address at all. You
may, however, still opt out from autoresponses by replying to one
with REMOVE as the only word in the subject line.
Except where required by law, we do not and
will not knowingly share with any other entity personally identifiable information
of any kind collected by this site. We may, however, share aggregate data
with affiliates and partner sites for the purpose of improving the quality of
our service for our users.
Personally identifiable information supplied
in email communications to us are used solely for reply if warranted, then discarded
unless there is just cause to keep it on file for future communications.
