Privacy Policy


Because your privacy is important to us, PeopleandChat operates by these principles:

PeopleandChat websites ("Sites") are maintained by PeopleandChat. We can be reached by e-mail at support@peopleandchat.org.

We explicitly ask when we need information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information"). Personal Information may be needed to provide unique services specific to you or your locale, like personal diaries or hometown news and information. Other services may need more extensive Personal Information, in order to provide a package tailored to a specific individual's needs. For example, peopleandchat asks you for your name and e-mail address if you wish to personalize your peopleandchat webpage. Some sites may ask you to provide personal financial information (in addition to Personal Information like name and address) over an encrypted connection, enabling you to purchase items online. We may request that you provide Personal Information as part of a contest or promotion. We use your Personal Information to operate peopleandchat, and we may occasionally inform you of new features, services, and products from peopleandchat. In all cases, we will explicitly inform you as to the requirement and/or use of requested Personal Information.

We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable the Sites to relate your use of the Sites to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to the Sites.

If at any time you believe a Site has not adhered to these principles, please notify us by email to support@peopleandchat.org and we will use all commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and correct the problem.

If you have questions about this policy, please e-mail us at support@peopleandchat.org

Children and Privacy 
Some Sites within peopleandchat are designed for use by children under the age of 16 and may request Personal Information in order to provide the benefits of the site. These Sites will notify children that they should obtain permission from their parents prior to providing this information. In cases where the site deems it necessary to share the child's Personal Information with third parties, for example in order to establish a pen pal program, the site will provide information regarding its efforts to obtain parental consent prior to releasing the Personal Information.

Parents should be aware that an individual Site's privacy policy will govern that sites use of Personal Information, but that information which is voluntarily given by children in chat sessions, e-mail exchanges, bulletin boards etc. may be used by other parties to generate unsolicited mail. Peopleandchat encourages all parents to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of their Personal Information while using the Internet.
