Q. Am I Required to Include My E-Mail Address In My Post?

A. Usually, you are not required to provide your e-mail address when submitting a post in a non-commercial section. Note that optional e-mail fields may offer you the opportunity to either include your e-mail address or key in "N/A" if you do not wish to include your e-mail address. However, in some sections, you may be required to include your e-mail address (e.g. when offering books for loan/exchange/transfer in the Book Review & Exchange section, when offering or requesting items in the Give & Take Section, when submitting an event for the Catholic Events Section, when submitting or requesting volunteers in the Volunteers' Corner Section, when requesting an ad in a Commercial Section). Also, you may be required to provide your e-mail address when submitting feedback. Remember that including your e-mail address involves various risks. If you do not want your e-mail address to appear on the site, you should not submit a post in a section where your e-mail address is required [or use any other form where your e-mail address is required (or otherwise provide your e-mail address)]. Reminder: We recommend a cautious approach to providing personal information, including e-mail addresses.

Q. What Are Some Benefits of Including My E-Mail Address?

A. There are two primary benefits of including your e-mail address. The first is so that others may contact you privately. The second is that by including your e-mail address you may more fully participate in all the sections of this site (including the Book Exchange, Give & Take, and Volunteers' Corner, and Commercial Sections).

Q. What Are Some Risks of Including My E-Mail Address?

A. Providing your e-mail address may entail a variety of risks. Remember that if you provide your e-mail address, it may be accessible to a wide range of people (including all those who have access to the Internet). As a result, you may encounter undesirable occurrences. For example:

* You may receive unwanted e-mail, viruses / worms, hate mail, etc.

* You may be sent offensive images or text via e-mail.

* You may be put on e-mail lists without your permission.

* You may be contacted about your posts for a long time, even if they are no longer applicable and even if they no longer appear on the site.

* Persons may use your e-mail address in an attempt to sell you products & services. 

* You may receive a large quantity of e-mail (wanted or unwanted) that exceeds the maximums indicated by your e-mail provider.

* Those with malicious intent may attempt to gain access to your e-mail account (and they may or may not be successful). If they are successful, they may have access to the private information you have supplied to your e-mail provider.

* Those with malicious intent may attempt to spy on your incoming / outgoing e-mail (and they may or may not be successful). 

* You may experience problems that may force you to abandon / switch e-mail accounts.

* Opportunistic and/or unscrupulous individuals may take advantage of information you provide and contact you. For example, if you post an announcement regarding the passing of your spouse and include an e-mail address, an unscrupulous individual may contact you and attempt to get you to do something they want you to do knowing that you may be in a vulnerable state. 

Q. What Else Should I Keep in Mind? 

A. With regard to the inclusion of e-mail addresses, you should also keep in mind that:

* We recommend a cautious approach to personal information for your own protection. 

* Once submitted, your actions cannot be undone. Your e-mail address may remain out there for a very, very long time... Sorry, but we are unable to honor requests to remove your e-mail address from your previously submitted posts.

* The more personal the post, the less you might want to include your e-mail address. For example, if you are asking for prayers for a successful pregnancy, your e-mail address may cause unwanted and bothersome communication (including solicitation for baby items, offensive abortion images, etc.) - remember that people do not need your e-mail address to pray for you!

* Although we strongly recommend that you obtain a special e-mail account for use with this site, this may not fully protect you. Remember also that some information about your computer is transferred even if you don't put your e-mail address (e.g. browser type, IP address, etc.) and this information may be assessable to others (especially those with malicious intent).

* People may not honor your wishes regarding e-mail (for example, you may indicate that your offer to loan a book is valid only to a specified day, but others may contact you even much later than that date).

* We have no control over what third party(ies) may do with your e-mail address, and we are not responsible for their use of it, regardless of circumstances. We do not guarantee that your information will be used appropriately by any person(s). 

* Note that by using this site / using any forms on this site, you agree that we are not required to secure any forms and that we are not responsible if any problems occur, regardless of their cause / circumstances. You also agree to assume all risks regarding forms / e-mail / correspondence / etc. If you do not want - or cannot afford - such risk, you should not participate. By submitting any data, you understand and agree that we do not warrant the security of any data / records / etc. and that you assume full and exclusive responsibility for any consequences which may occur.

* Remember that information sent via e-mail is generally insecure. E-mail may be intercepted, forged, spied on/read by others, etc. Do not transmit sensitive personal information via e-mail. 

* If you are unsure about including your e-mail address, you should omit it (you may put "N/A" wherever this is allowed).

* The fact that you are prompted for an e-mail address on an 'Add page' does not necessarily mean that you must include an e-mail address. The field may require data, but not necessary an e-mail address. Look for a notice that you may put "N/A" in the e-mail field. Remember that an e-mail address is required only in certain areas (e.g. when offering books for loan/exchange/transfer in the Book Review & Exchange section, when offering or requesting items in the Give & Take Section, when submitting an event for the Catholic Events Section, when submitting or requesting volunteers in the Volunteers' Corner Section, when requesting an ad in a Commercial Section) - in other areas, you may put "N/A".

* If you don't want to include your e-mail address, you should not post where it is required.

* You should think especially carefully about using areas of this site where your e-mail address is required. Remember you assume all risks and are solely responsible for all consequences due to your use of this site.

* Even if you have previously included your e-mail address with posts, you may stop doing so at any time. Even if you still wish to continue providing your e-mail address, you should feel free to omit it (when not required) whenever you desire - e.g. for more sensitive posts, when you are especially busy, etc.

* Seniors / infirm / handicapped / frail persons / etc. should be especially cautious about whether to include their e-mail addresses with posts.

* The decision of whether or not to include your e-mail address is a personal decision. It should be made extremely carefully, cautiously and with much reflection. When doing so, remember that our Lord Jesus Christ said we should expect to be hated by the world (see Jn. 15:18-20).

* We cannot assist you if you have problems with e-mail and we are not responsible / liable for any problems which may occur. Remember that by using this site, you agree to all terms. For more terms information, click here.

Q. What If I Am Unsure About Including My E-Mail Address?

A. If you are unsure about including your e-mail address, you should omit it (you may put "N/A" wherever this is allowed). You will be unable to participate in areas where an e-mail address is required.

Q. Who Will Be Able To See My E-Mail Address?

A. If you provide your e-mail address, it may be accessible to a wide range of people (including all those who have access to the Internet). 

Q. If I Do Include My E-Mail Address, What Do You Recommend?

A. As indicated above, you should carefully consider whether or not to include your e-mail address. If you have decided to include your e-mail address, we strongly recommend that you use a special e-mail account exclusively for use on this site (e.g. one that you could easily abandon/change should a problem arise). For best results, this e-mail account should be independent of your other e-mail account(s). Note that various provider(s) may offer e-mail accounts at little or no charge. You may also want to consider 'disposable' e-mail accounts which may be valid only for a certain duration / number of e-mails / etc. You should be sure to consider e-mail providers' security / privacy policies when evaluating them. Further, we recommend applying a filter to your e-mail so that you may avoid viewing offensive e-mail. You may consider reporting any incidents which occur, as applicable, to law enforcement authorities. You should also keep in mind Our Lord's words: "Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven." (See Mt. 5:11-12). And also, "I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father" (See Mt. 5:44-45). And, of course, we recommend you remain cautious about including any other personal information with your posts and use appropriate virus protection / spyware detection / etc. and all other appropriate security measures. Reminder: Advertisers may need to have a 'permanent e-mail address' since it may be required for various actions regarding ads (e.g. deletion requests, etc.).
