PRIVACY AND SECURITY POLICY
THE INTERNET, PRIVACY AND SMSF
You authorize SMSF to display your name on the Preceptors List. With exception of forwarding your contact information as listed on the Preceptors List to potential new members, be assured that SMSF will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent. SMSF may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) SMSF's rights or property, other SMSF users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. SMSF may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
There are cases where SMSF may ask you for personal information such as your name, e-mail address, and birth date. For example, we request personal information when you register for any classes, courses, workshops, gatherings, seminars, shopping or transactions, or for services that require registration or subscription (for example SMSF Sahaj Net News newsletter). SMSF needs to collect this information for fulfilling orders, tracking/verifying compliance with SMSF policies as well as federal, state, and local laws, and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes. In case you change your mind or some personal information changes (such as your ZIP code), we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any communication or material you transmit to the Site by electronic mail or otherwise, including any articles, data, questions, comments, assignments, releases, suggestions, or the like is and will be treated as, non-confidential and non-proprietary.

Although persons under 18 years of age may be allowed to participate in some essay writing competition or any other related contests, if such a person wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parent or guardian identified in the initial registration process. Publication of names, ages, or images for contest winners under 18 require parental or guardian consent.
We do not allow persons under 18 years of age
to be listed in our member directory or to receive direct communications

USE OF IP ADDRESSES
SMSF may collect IP addresses for the purposes
of system administration, to report aggregate information to
our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When Persons
request pages from SMSF sites, our servers log the persons'
IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything
personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will
be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and
will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is
necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms
of service or to protect our service, site, members, or others.
Some services within SMSF, such as certain message boards, may
display IP addresses along with the message poster's name and
message. Please review each service prior to use and only use
those that disclose information you are comfortable with sharing.
By showing how and when persons use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users' needs.
You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers.
SMSF does not control these cookies. The use of advertising
cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
SMSF's policy does not extend to anything that
is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore
beyond SMSF's control, and is not to be applied in any manner
contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
Your SMSF login if assigned, is password-protected so that only you can access it and view the information relevant to the account. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. SMSF may also have group user IDs and passwords for certain categories of its members. This is to facilitate administrators, prefects, coordinators etc., to access certain privileged information. Such user Ids and Passwords are to be maintained strictly confidential. SMSF at its discretion may cancel the login and password if it believes it is in the best interest of the site and the members. In such cases, the member shall reregister for accessing such pages that are affected. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.
Remember to sign out of SMSF and close your browser
window when you have finished your work or order transaction.
This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information
and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others
or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a
computer in a public place like a library or Internet café.
