We use technology called "cookies" (as does nearly every major web portal or social media site) - which are bits of code used to detect things like your geographic area, browser/platform you're viewing pages on, and screensize - for general statistical purposes, to help improve the site or make it easier to use, and to serve you better, more customized content.
Regarding usage of content/information we receive from users on Electrofans.com, it is our guarantee to you that we will never transmit any personally identifiable information (such as your email address, real name, etc) to our clients, partners, or other third parties without your permission, provided you are in not in violation of our Terms of Service, or engaging in untoward, suspicious, or criminal activities in your use of the website. (There is a box at the bottom of the 'Edit Profile' page where you can specify whether or not you would like to receive offers, special promotions, discounts, etc by email that we think would interest you. You may change this communications preference at anytime, simply by checking or unchecking the box at the bottom of the 'Edit Profile' page).
We do want to also let you know that all information that you include on your 'Member Profile' will be "publicly viewable," but you can customize various "User Privacy Settings" at the bottom of your 'Edit Profile' page (such as whether to display your email address on your profile or not, whether other Electrofans members [but only other members!] - can send you messages, and whether or not to include your name and a link to your user profile on our 'Member List' page).
Additionally, we set up an app on Facebook, to facilitate users being able to register (create an Electrofans profile) and/or login by using Facebook authentication. We do not (and have no ability to) store or access your Facebook account password, we just offer the app to make the login or registration process easier if you'd like to use that method, so you don't have to remember a password each time you log in to our site. *Please note: if you do create an Electrofans profile using our Facebook app, you will have to, each time afterwards, log in by clicking the "LOGIN WITH FACEBOOK BUTTON".
Feel free to e-mail us with any questions or concerns you may have at any time, and we hope you have fun and find the site useful!
