This site is an online community. The information we collect that is required for each account is email address, IP address and age. We collect email addresses and IP addresses to prevent users from creating multiple GoneGothic accounts. Your email address may also be used for account activation/recovery. We collect age information in order to keep in compliance with internet laws and practices. User passwords are stored in an encrypted format in our database so there is no way we can view the actual password. Users under the age of 13 are NOT allowed to create accounts on this site. Users can upload personal information to their profiles, which becomes published online. We do not sell any user information or pass on any of the information we collect unless we are asked by law enforcement officials to release information. While we do have administrators who monitor the site in order to keep things in order, we do not take responsibility for anything that users publish on the site. This service is provided as-is, and we do not make any claims as to the quality of service.
