As it seems that almost every web site on the entire Interweb has some
to have one as well. This was not written by a lawyer, so we apologize
for the lack of big words and legalese. We're not even sure that legalese
is even a real word. If it is, we don't think it should be. That said,
on with the privacy info.
At Dontmindme.com, we collect information about people who visit the
site (actually, the good people at Powweb, our hosting company, do the
actual collecting for us). This gives us some general information about
who is visiting the site, such as how people are finding the site, what
pages are being viewed, what browser software people are using, etc. The
collected information also allows us to detect when unscrupulous folks
link remotely to images on Dontmindme.com. Doing so is stealing our bandwidth
and generally being a nuisance, and will not be tolerated. If you feel
the need to use an image from this site on your livejournal or message
board, download it and use your own bandwidth. If you link to something
here, we will find out, and may change the image to something else entirely,
such as a huge banner promoting this site, or perhaps
a picture of the President of the USA playing with an elephant. This
is no longer about privacy, though, and that's ostensibly
what this page is about.
If you send email to Dontmindme.com, we reserve the right to publish
that email. If this bothers you, just include words like "Do not
publish" or "please don't print this" at the top of your
email, and we won't publish it. Otherwise, we just might. If we do publish
your email we won't publish your email address, but we might publish your
name. We reserve the right to edit for length, clarity, and offensiveness.
We also reserve the right to publish your email completely unedited to
make you sound dumb, so run a spell check before hitting send. And if
you think we're bluffing about printing emails from people and making
them look like idiots, we've
done it in the past.
We have a forum, registering for which is completely and entirely optional,
but doing so does require some information, such as a valid email address.
You may posting there and read posts without registering if you so choose,
because forums that won't even let you read posts without registering
are annoying and bad. If you do register, there will be a cookie placed
on your computer to allow you to access your forum settings quickly and
easily when you return.
About cookies, you may find polls on some pages on this site, and the
poll program may also place a cookie on your computer. This is to prevent
people from voting multiple times on the same poll.
At this time we should point out that we do not sell, rent, lease, or
otherwise provide information collected on our visitors to companies that
might want to collect this sort of information. That said, we do run advertisements
by Google, and they have their own privacy
policy that you can go and read if you're bored of this one. Their
privacy info is more boring than ours though, and was probably written
by a lawyer, so consider yourself warned on the boredom front.
If you click on any ads on this site, or visit any sites linked from
here, be warned that we have no idea what these other sites have for privacy
policies, so you'll have to go and find that out for yourself. We also
can't really comment on the usefulness, quality, or appropriateness of
any other sites.
Okay, that about sums up the privacy info. We hope you enjoyed it. Thanks
for visiting Dontmindme.com.
