Your privacy is important

BBN Entertainment, Inc. Member Sites Network Privacy Policy

BBN Entertainment, Inc. ("the Service") has created this privacy policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to protecting your personal information and informing you about how we handle it. This privacy policy only applies to transactions and activities in which you engage, and data gathered, on the Services Member Sites (collectively, the "Sites") but does not apply to any other web site or offline point of contact between the Service or any other company and consumers. Please review this privacy policy periodically as we may modify it from time to time. Each time you visit the Site or provide us with information, by doing so you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy at that time.

Sign Up Form
The Service is an internet portal designed to provide an easy and safe way to meet others, to research local clubs and bars, find out about parties in your area, and much more on the internet. None of the information requested can be used by the public to identify a specific individual. This includes visitors, other members, anyone not employed by the Site, its corporate affiliates, or the financial institutions we use to process membership charges.

The Service gathers two types of user information: information users submit to us and information not directly submitted by users.

  • User-Submitted Information: Public - We define Public information as personal information that may be displayed on the site. This information cannot be linked to a particular user. Much of this information is optional, and meant to be seen by registrants and subscribers for various purposes. This may or may not include: customer-specified username, gender, age, height, appearance, religion, income range, occupation, preference/lifestyle information and general geographic location.
  • User-Submitted Information: Private - Private information is defined as any information that allows others to contact a user other than through the Site or allows the collection of information about the user other than what is displayed on the site. This information is gathered from members and guests who apply for the various services our site offers. This information includes, but is not limited to: e-mail address, first name, last name, birth-date, credit card number or checking account information for payment, a user-specified password, mailing address, zip code and telephone number.
  • Aggregate Information: Not Submitted by User - This is information we collect that is not personally identifiable, such as browser type and IP address. This information is gathered from all visitors to the site. Your IP address is used in the following ways: to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our website and gather broad demographic information such as the number of visitors from a geographic area. We gather this demographic information to assist us in tailoring our visitor's experience at our site. This allows us to display content more specific to the interests of our users and to display the information according to their preferences.

Use of Cookies
A cookie is a piece of data stored on a user's computer tied to information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We use session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once the user click on LOGOUT or closes the browser, the cookie simply terminates. If the user chooses to save their password on the log-in page, a persistent cookie (a small text file stored on the user’s hard drive for an extended period of time) is created. Persistent cookies can be removed by unchecking the “Remember Password” box.

The Service may contain links to other websites and the Site is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites.

Chat Rooms
The Service makes chat rooms available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information online.

The Service takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

When our registration/order process asks users to enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry: Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with 128-bit encryption.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only staff who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. This database resides behind firewalls and/or on separate computers in order to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. No claim is made as to the impenetrability of the system under unusual circumstance or its resilience to future attacks.

Use of Financial Information
We use your financial information to check your qualifications, bill you for products and services and to enable you to participate in discount, rebate and similar programs in which you may elect to participate. By making a purchase, or engaging in any other kind of activity or transaction that uses financial information on the Site, you consent to our providing your financial information to our service providers and to such third parties as we determine are necessary to support and process your activities and transactions, as well as to your credit card issuer for their purposes. These third parties may include the credit card companies and banking institutions used to process and support the transaction or activity. By purchasing, or registering or making reservations for, products or services of third parties offered on the Site, or by participating in programs offered on the Site that are administered by third parties and that require you to submit financial information in order to use them, you also consent to our providing your financial information to those third parties. Any of these various third parties may be authorized to use your financial information in accordance with our contractual arrangements with such third parties and in accordance with their own privacy policies, over which we have no control, and you agree that we are not responsible or liable for any of their actions or omissions. Additionally, you agree that we may use and disclose all such information so submitted to such third parties in the same manner in which we are entitled to use and disclose any other information that you submit to us.

If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy policy, the practices of the Site, or your dealings with the Site, please contact us. You can also send us mail to:
