your privacy is important to us, AfraidToAsk.com operates by the following principles.
Information About You
generally do not need to know (and do not ask you for) information that identifies
you personally. There are times, however, when we may need a limited amount
of personal information to provide you with services that are unique to you
or tailored specifically for you. If that is ever the case, we will ask you
explicitly for that personal information. Alternatively, you may wish to take
advantage of online purchase opportunities when we offer them. You will need
to provide some specific personal information (beyond just a name and address)
to make that purchase possible. This type of information is always sent to us
over an encrypted (or secured) connection that has been set up to keep anyone
else from gaining access to your information.
We may need personal information in order to inform you about new features,
services, or products available from us or our sponsors and partners. We will
always tell you if personal information is required for purposes like these,
and we will tell you how it is going to be used if different than outlined here.
Our site's registration and survey form may ask users to give us contact information
(such as e-mail address) and demographic information (e.g., age and gender).
This information is NOT shared with advertisers on an individual basis, though
the general demographics of all visitors may be shared on an aggregate basis
only. Finally, this site has security measures in place to protect the loss,
misuse, and alteration of the information under our control to minimize the
risk of hackers gaining access to these data.

Precautions Specifically for Kids
does NOT expressly collect online contact information from children. Any
online information collected will only be used to respond directly to the child's
request and will not be used for other purposes without prior parental consent.
Though we do not require parental consent for access to our guides and information,
we encourage all children and young adults to surf responsibly with the help
of a mature adult. In addition, we do NOT collect personally identifiable
off-line contact information without prior parental consent. We do NOT
distribute to third parties any personally identifiable information without
prior parental consent. We do NOT entice by the prospect of a special
game, prize or other activity, to divulge more information than is needed to
participate in the activity. If
you are a parent, remember that our policy only governs our Web site. That means
that if your child shares personal information with other users during a chat
session or on a bulletin board, we cannot control how others may use it. For
this reason, we strongly encourage you to talk with your kids about being cautious
when it comes to sharing personal information online.
