2. The Types of Information We Collect; Our Uses of Personally Identifiable Information
To provide the Facilities, we must collect and process information about you, including "Personally Identifiable Information," which means information that could reasonably be used to identify you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, age, photograph, or any combination of this or similar information. The Personally Identifiable Information we process includes information you provide directly to us and choose to make available to other Members and Visitors of the Site, information collected automatically from your device when you visit the Site, and usage data about how you interact with the Site and engage with the Facilities.
2.1 Information You Provide Directly to Us
We collect the Personally Identifiable Information you provide to us, when you register to become a Member, upload Content or engage in the Facilities.
2.1.1 Registration and Profile Information
In order to participate as a Member and to use the Facilities, we require that you complete the registration process and create a Member Profile. The registration process asks you to: (i) create a username, (ii) create a password, (iii) verify that you are at least 18 years old and provide a copy of your government-issued identification, (iv) provide an email address, (v) provide your zip code, (vi) specify the country in which you reside, (vii) state your physical features such as: (a) height, (b) weight, and (c) age; and (viii) supply information about yourself and what you're hoping to discover by being a Member of our Site. You also have the option to voluntarily list your COVID-19 vaccination status on your Profile. DashBoardHosting does not require you to disclose your vaccination status. We also give you the option of providing DashBoardHosting with your full name, which helps us should you forget your password.
Our system relies on usernames as the public Site "identifier" for the each Member. Subject to your Privacy Controls, Members' username, gender, height, weight, Profile link, and Content are available to other Members and some Visitors.
2.1.2 Our Use of Profiles in Promotions
We believe that our Members' own experiences on the Site can often act as the strongest promotion for the Site and our Facilities. To promote and illustrate the Site, therefore, we may wish to post on our homepage, and in other areas of the Site, Member Profiles, Content and other information that our Members provide to us. To this end, we provide "mini-searches" in which Visitors performing searches will be able to see a synopsis of the Profiles of Members who have opted in to "mini- searches," and an image from such Members' Profiles may be displayed on our homepage. Moreover, if you create an external profile, then Visitors will have greater access to your Content. You have the option of opting-out of "mini-searches" in your Profile settings. You may also request to become a "feature member" in which your Content may be prominently displayed on our homepage. Please be aware that all Visitors will be able to view your Content if you opt-in to participate in: (i) the mini-searches, (ii) become a featured member; or (iii) activate an external profile.
2.1.4 Billing Information
DashBoardHosting uses a third-party payment processor to handle electronic payments, and billing information shared with our vendor is intended to be used solely to allow said third party to process payments. Any personal information that we collect when processing payments made through "traditional" methods, such as check or money order, will be treated as Personally Identifiable Information.
2.1.5 Email Addresses
You have the option of opting-in or opting-out of receiving e-mail notifications relating to our Site, including for example, notifications that you have received a message from another Member.
2.1.6 Surveys and Contests
Periodically, we may initiate surveys or contests on the Site, and we may request Personally Identifiable Information from you in connection with such surveys and contests. You are free to choose whether you participate in a survey or contest. The information we request may include contact information, and this information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and appeal of our Site. We will notify you of relevant details in connection with asking for your participation in such surveys or contests.
2.2. Member-Directed Information
Member-Directed Information is information you intend to provide or make available to other users of our Site including, but not limited to, in our forums and chat rooms, as well as your shared Content and the information that you include on your Profile. If your Member-Directed Information includes any Personally Identifiable Information (such as your full name or a photograph of yourself), any such information can be collected and used by other Members and Visitors, and you may receive unsolicited communications or contact as a result. We provide a range of privacy choices to assist you in making good choices concerning the information you disclose. Please see Section 7 (Additional Tools for Protecting Your Privacy) for a description. Please note that all Member-Directed Information is also monitored by DashBoardHosting.
2.2.1 Member Communications
By registering on the Website, Members indicate an interest in exchanging information with other Members, subject to any Privacy Controls imposed. To allow such communications, we provide information to identify individual users, in the form of other Members' username, gender, height, weight, and a link to their Member Profile.
2.2.2 Forums and Chat Rooms
As part of our Facilities, we offer forums and chat rooms on our Site. Only your username is available to other users of these Facilities. Any comments you contribute to the online dialogue, however, will be seen by all other participants immediately, and are attributed to your username. You should, therefore, use discretion in what you submit to these exchanges. Additional guidelines for the use of our forums and chat rooms are available on our Site.
2.2.3 Other Information Exchanges
The Site allows Members (i) to provide and receive information in a range of forms and on a variety of topics, and (ii) to engage in other activities through Site discussions that may include, at the option of the Member, an exchange of Personally Identifiable Information.
2.3 Usage Data
2.3.1 IP Addresses; Logs
DashBoardHosting may automatically receive and record information in our server logs from your browser, including your IP address (the Internet address of your PC), the type and version of your web browser, referrer addresses, and other generally-accepted log information. We may also record page views (hit counts) and other general statistical and tracking information, which will be aggregated with that of other users in order to understand how our Site is being used, and for security and monitoring purposes.
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, which is sent to your browser from a website's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive.

We may send email messages, which use a "click-through URL" linked to content on our Website. When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply do not click text or graphic links in the email.

4. Additional Tools for Protecting Your Privacy
We provide a range of features to assist our Members seeking to preserve an appropriate level of privacy, including the following:
4.1. Privacy Controls
We provide you with privacy controls, that allow you to: (i) designate your Profile as "offline," (ii) "block" certain Members; and (iii) designate certain uploaded Visual Content as "public," "private," or "personal" (collectively, our "Privacy Controls"). If you designate your Profile as "offline," other Members are restricted from accessing your Profile. In addition, you have the ability to "block" specific Members. When uploading Visual Content on our Site, you can designate (and DashBoardHosting will review and verify) each image as either "public," "private," or "personal." All Members, and potentially Site Visitors, can view content marked "public," and only those Members that you give permission to can view your uploaded content that is marked "private" or "personal." If you create an external profile, then Site Visitors may be able to view additional content in your Profile.
We have implemented specific guidelines (in our Help Menu) for the subject matter that can be depicted in the Content that you upload to the Site and all Content (regardless of public, private, or personal designation) is reviewed by DashBoardHosting employees before it is available on the Site. DashBoardHosting may additionally choose, but does not assume the obligation, to "spot check" Content for compliance with our Terms and guidelines.
Please employ the Privacy Controls, and choose carefully the information you post on your Profile, and that you provide to other Members. You should take care if you choose to include information that personally identifies you, such as your telephone number, street address, last name, email address, and any photographs that could easily identify you or where you are located.
4.2 Reporting of Problems
5. Changing or Removing Information; Privacy Rights
5.1 Updating Your Information
To allow appropriate control over Personally Identifiable Information, you can access your account (after supplying your username and password) to change or update Member-Directed Information and certain information that you have provided directly us.
5.2 Deleting Information
You can request we delete your Profile and remove your name and other Personally Identifiable Information from our databases. Please understand that if you delete your Profile, all Visual Content will also be deleted and cannot be recovered, and you will be unable to utilize associated features of the Site or access the Facilities. Please note, however, that it may be impossible to completely remove all your information completely, due to backups and records of deletions. Additionally we will not remove de-identified, anonymous, or aggregate data from our databases. We may also retain certain personal information in order to comply with applicable laws, keep accurate records, resolve disputes, prevent fraud, enforce our Terms or other agreements, or for any other legally permissible purpose.
5.3 Privacy Rights in Certain Jurisdictions
Certain jurisdictions provide privacy rights to individuals with respect to the collection and use of personal information that we hold. For example, residents of California have the right to request that we: (i) disclose to you any Personally Identifying Information that we have about you; (ii) correct or delete Personally Identifying Information (subject to certain exceptions); or (iii) not disclose or sell your Personally Identifying Information to a third party (excluding qualified service providers). You can submit such requests to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will aim to complete the request to the extent required by law or as otherwise determined by us in our discretion. You have the right not to be discriminated against in service or price if you exercise your privacy rights.
5.4 Marketing Emails
From time to time, we may contact you via email or through other channels for the purpose of providing announcements, promotional information and/or other general communication. In order to improve the Member experience, we may be notified when you open an email from us or click on a link therein. You may choose not to receive marketing emails from us by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the marketing emails you receive from us. Even if you opt out of receiving such communications, we may continue sending you non-marketing email communications, such as administrative or transaction alerts, or information about changes to our terms of service.
Web browsers and mobile devices may offer users the ability to disable receiving certain types of cookies or tracking; however, if such cookies or tracking are disabled, some features or functionality of the Site may not function correctly.
We use standard physical, technical and administrative measures designed to reduce the risk of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of your Personally Identifiable Information. Further, DashBoardHosting employees (and employees of our affiliates and Site Vendors) are required to acknowledge that they understand and will abide by our policies with respect to the confidentiality of Personally Identifiable Information. Moreover, we provide access to our internal databases containing Personally Identifiable Information on a need-to-know basis only. Unfortunately, however, no system or network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, for example, if you believe that the security of your Member account has been compromised, please immediately notify us at email@example.com .
