Types of Information We Collect
Generally, you are free to browse the Shalom Place site without submitting any personal information. We do not collect any of your personal information (such as a name, address or e-mail address) when you visit the site, unless you download one of our products, register or have registered to use one of our products or services, complete one of our evaluations, or otherwise agree to submit to us such information. All such information collected is considered confidential and will never be shared with anyone or any group.
Registration on Our Discussion Forum
Shalom Place requires users who want to participate in the Discussion Board forums to register. In order to register, you must provide us with a username (which does not have to be your real name), password and a valid e-mail address. This allows us to protect our community from abusive postings and provides a verifiable point of contact should legal questions arise. At any time, you have the ability to keep your e-mail address hidden from other users by selecting that option within your user profile.
When you register, you have the option of providing some additional information such as occupation, interests, and homepage URL. This optional information is made available to other bulletin or message board users to foster a sense of community. If you have any concerns about providing this information, simply leave the fields blank and your registration will still be processed.
IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE you are not allowed to participate in the Shalom Place forums, or to provide any personal information on our site.

Postings on Message Boards
It is important for you to remain aware that when you provide personal information (e.g., last name, address, phone number) in a posting on any discussion board, that information is available to any other person or user having access and use of that discussion board, and may be used by someone in a manner unintended by you. For that reason, we discourage you from offering any personally identifying information within a posting to any message board.
You can share personal information with another by sending them a private message, which can be seen by the other in their profile, by not by the community.
