Optional Voluntary Information
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
1. Electronic (e-mail) updates

2. "E-mail this to a friend" Service
We may choose to offer a way for our site users to choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.

Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. Suberspace.com may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
