We limit the collection and disclosure of personal information
Although certain areas and features of www.foundersatfail.com are available to You without registration or the need to provide to Us any personally identifiable information, your acceptance of Founders@Fail’s Terms of Service are mandatory. Some features of the Website or the Service may require registration, which requires You to provide minimally your first and last name and an email address(collectively the “Registration Information”). You also have the option to provide additional details about yourself, such as weight, gender, age, etc. WE DO NOT AND WILL NOT SELL OR RENT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO ANYONE, FOR ANY REASON, AT ANY TIME.
Founders@Fail only uses our Users’ personal information as follows:
? To analyze Website usage and improve Service;

In addition, access to your Registration Information, Account Credentials, Account Information and any other personal information that You provide is restricted strictly to Founders@Fail employees and contractors, as needed in order to operate, develop or improve the Service. This access is subject to Founders@Fail’s strict internal standards of security and confidentiality.
In some instances, We may request other personal information in order to provide You with access to additional features and benefits of the Service. In all such occasions, You will be given the option of whether or not to provide that information, and any information that You provide will be used only for the purpose(s) stated at the time You provide that information.

Account Settings and User Generated Content
You should be aware that any information You submit to the Website can be read, collected, or used by other users or third parties visiting your user profile. WE DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU CHOOSE TO SUBMIT TO THE WEBSITE.
Through our Service, Founders@Fail enables You, if You choose, to share information with others, as this is a crucial component of an interactive online experience. Founders@Fail’s default settings for new users are set to PUBLIC, which allows anyone to see your “User Profile” pages, “Comments,” “Guest-listed Events,” and your “Events attended” page. However, You can always opt to maintain as PRIVATE your Founders@Fail user profile within your settings. We encourage You to consider this privacy setting before sharing information on the Website.
Generally, Founders@Fail encourages search engine access to the Webite and instructs search engines to index “public” user profile pages. SETTING YOUR PROFILE TO “PRIVATE” PREVENTS SEARCH ENGINES FROM INDEXING YOUR PAGE.

Most of the cookies that Founders@Fail sets are for the purpose of maintaining your logged-in state to the Website, and they expire as soon as You quit the browser.
