Butch-Femme.Com has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy for our users. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site.
Information Automatically Logged
We log IP addresses for several reasons. The Webmasters need to have a record of the flow of traffic to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer and recover our Web site in the event of a server crash. Also, since Butch-Femme.Com is a public queer site, we feel it is necessary to protect the community gathered here from would-be bashers. We work really hard on keeping Butch-Femme.Com a friendly, well-lit place for butches and femmes to gather, and we are dedicated to protecting the space from any trouble-makers (queer or straight) who might hide behind the anonymity of the Net. Butch-Femme.Com is also registered with Abuse.Net.
Butch-Femme.Com relies on input from the community as it's life-blood. When you utilize certain resources on Butch-Femme.Com, you will be required to provide contact information such as an email address, ect. Butch-Femme.Com will never sell to any third party your name, address, email address and/or member name, except to the extent necessary to comply with applicable laws, police investigations, or in legal proceedings where such information is relevant. The site implements forms for users to submit a link, love story, a poem, or other writing. No one but the Webmasters ever see these forms, and they are used only to help the Webmasters in updating new submissions for the web site. Butch-Femme.Com reserves the right to ban you from our services if you have provided us with false or misleading information.
Butch-Femme.Com sends out a Newsletter via email to subscribers. We would never sell or rent our subscriber list, and no other subscribers should ever see your email address on the list because we use blind-carbon copy for our mailings. If you feel you have been added to the Newsletter by mistake, you can always unsub yourself from the Butch-Femme.Com contents page. Any user may opt-out of receiving future mailings at any time by using the automated Newsletter application on the contents page.
Surveys and Polls
Our online polls ask visitors for their email address only to insure that people only vote once. We don't use this information for any other purpose.
This site contains links to other sites. Butch-Femme.Com is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
Leaders: Community Volunteers
Butch-Femme.Com invites volunteers called "Leaders" to help us moderate and maintain the mailing lists and the Forum. Volunteers do not have access to the server, or to any private information gathering that takes place though applications on our server.
Butch-Femme.Com makes chat rooms, forums, message boards, and mailing lists available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. We can only stress that the privacy on our mailing lists is to be respected, but we cannot insure it. Also, the form for placing personal ads has an optional space to list your phone number and address. If you choose the option of disclosing your phone number of address, it is at your own risk. The Webmasters strongly advise against posting that kind of direct contact information on any public web site.
