Information that is submitted voluntarily

We may offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:

  1. Forums: Users of the site's Forums must register for this service (free of charge) in order to post messages, although they need not register to visit the site. During registration the user is required to supply a username, password, email address, proper name, phone number and birth date.

"E-mail this to a friend" Service: Our site users may choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "E-mail this to a friend".The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.

Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user.

Anti-Spam Measures

The F-4 Society utilizes an anti-spam service called Mollom to screen content before it is posted to our main website. Mollom may block a post outright if it is from a known spammer. If Mollom is unsure how to classify a post, it may require the completion of a "CAPTCHA" to accept the post. Posts that do not match a "spammy' text pattern and do not originate from known spammers are accepted without the need to complete a CAPTCHA. For more information on what data is sent to Mollom, how long it may be stored and how the data is used on their servers please review the Mollom Privacy Policy. Please report any Spam or inappropriate content that makes it past this protection to the Webmaster. By posting a message or content, you accept that your message and other personal details about you will be analyzed and stored for anti-spam and quality monitoring purposes, in accordance with Mollom's Privacy Policy.
