What we collect and how we use personal information
EcoNet4.me collects information required for proper user account
handling and user identification such as: email address, screen name

including but not limited to: real name, gender, birth date, User’s
website, instant messaging contact info and location. Profile
information is public or private. Profile information can be changed by
any time by the User.
The Services also logs other information including IP address and
browser type from both registered Users and anonymous visitors. This
data is used for technical purposes of running the Services, monitor and
analyze trends and improve the Services and for security and monitoring
purposes. These aggregate data (with any individual information
stripped such that no connection to individual users can be made) can be
shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and
User profile data is public and can be viewed by any visitor, or it
can be set as private and visible to contacts or people that are members
of the same Sites the User is too (available in Pro accounts).
User email addresses are never displayed publicly nor revealed to
other Users unless a User puts it directly on the pages or another User
is in your contact list. However to make finding Users easier we allow
searching by email address where one can look up a User whose email
address matches the queried one.

On some Sites anonymous users are allowed to post content and/or
participate in forum discussions. In such a case, since no user name can
be associated with such a user, the IP address number of a user is used
as an identifier.
When posting content or messages to the Sites anonymously, part of your IP address will be revealed to the public.

privacy only relates to the EcoNet4.me Services.
Please note that whenever you post Content to any of the public EcoNet4.me Sites the Content can be accessed by anyone.
You can set up the EcoNet4.me Site as private which means only

This is what “private” means.
Advertisements appearing on any of the EcoNet4.me Sites can be delivered to

any advertising partners.
EcoNet4.me User accounts are protected by user-created passwords.
Wherever required we use security measures to avoid plain-text
transport of personal information between the browser and EcoNet4.me
servers. In particular the login form data (email + password), all
registration data, password-recovery forms and a few other that involve
personal data use secure transport.
To ensure secure data transfer, pages with sensitive information use the HTTPS
protocol with at least 128-bit SSL certificates when communicating with
a web browser. Areas protected by SSL include: My Account panel, login
pages, create account pages, upgrade pages, AdSense panel and all
user-created Sites with SSL enabled.
Whenever EcoNet4.me servers need to communicate sensitive
information to other third party servers, such as AdSense servers,
direct card payment gateways or other payment services, secure SSL
transport is used.
EcoNet4.me uses various techniques against unauthorized access to
the information that result from hacking activity such as cross server
scripting (XSS), session stealing, sniffing and many others.
The data stored on our database servers is kept with a reasonable
protection against unauthorized access and accessible only by minimal
number of employees. We however can not guarantee protection against
unauthorized use, hardware or software failure and other factors that
may compromise the security of User information that is beyond our
In particular we also take no responsibility for unauthorized access
that results from Users sharing their password with others or not taking
sufficient security measures when using public computers.

user acceptance except when it is required by law. Some information can
be shared with other third party services that provide level of

clearly explained to the User and requires User’s acceptance.
