Information Collection and Use by SocialCross.org
SocialCross.org collects user submitted information such as name, email address, and age to authenticate users and to send notifications to those users relating to the SocialCross.org service. SocialCross.org also collects other profile data including but not limited to: personal interests, gender, age, education and occupation in order to assist users in finding and communicating with each other. SocialCross.org also logs non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from users and visitors to the site. This data is used to manage the website, track usage and improve the website services. This non-personally identifiable information may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to members. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes.
User Profile information including members' pictures and first names are displayed to people in order to facilitate user interaction in the SocialCross.org social networking community. Email addresses are used for the purposes of inviting new friends to join SocialCross, to add users to members' friends' networks, and to send notifications related to the service. With the exception of inviting friends, adding friends, and notifications, a user's email address is not shared or displayed to people within a user's personal network. Users within a personal network communicate on SocialCross.org with each other through the SocialCross.org service, without disclosing their email addresses. Users' full names are never directly revealed to other members. To facilitate searching and finding friends and acquaintances on the service, SocialCross allows users to search for other members using first and last name, email address, and schools and/or companies where users may have attended or worked.
Invitations and Other Communications to Non-members
SocialCross members can invite friends to join the service by sending invitation emails via our automated invitation system. SocialCross.org stores the email addresses that members provide so that the respondents may be added to the friend's list of the member sending the invitations, and also to send reminders of the invitations. SocialCross.org does not sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides invitation reminders (up to three (3) per email address). Recipients of invitations from SocialCross.org may contact SocialCross.org to request the removal of their information from our database.
SocialCross members may also store email addresses of people they know in their internal SocialCross address book and may also choose to send invitations and other communications to those addresses.

Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post public information to Journals, WebLogs, Message Boards, Classifieds or any other Public Forums information can be accessed by the public and can in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications.
