Solicitation of e-mail addresses. It is required that users who wish to include their photos in our database register for a free member account. At the time of registration, the user will be prompted for, among other things, his e-mail address.

The e-mail address will not be publicly displayed at any time, and all correspondence will be sent through a secure webform, protecting the user. All user e-mail addresses remain confidential.
Automated collection of information. For security purposes, the IP
