What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our site, you may provide us with two types of information: personal non-public information you actively choose to disclose ("Active Information") and use information collected, in a way not visible to you, on an aggregate anonymous basis as you and others browse our site ("Passive Information").
Active Information Collected
We receive and store much of the information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features.

As part of this registration form, we may require select personal information, including your full name, city, state, last four of your social security number, military and discharge information (where applicable) and e-mail address. To allow you to express yourself beyond just the information collected during registration, we enable you to provide additional information, such as your name, your address, your email address, a site Account screen name, etc. In addition, you may choose to include photos of yourself or images of your choosing in your site account profile.
