Membership to the LifeOUT.com website is completely optional. LifeOUT.com registration requires that users provide contact information, such as name and email address, and also demographic information, such as a birth date.

Aggregate demographic information collected through the registration process may be shared with advertisers and other partners. This information is not traceable to an individual user.

Chat, IM, Forums, Polls, Community Tools

LifeOUT.com provides many options for member interaction and community, including chat, IM, forums, online polls, and other tools. In some cases, use of such tools may reveal a username or email address and may permit users to publish certain personal information (such as webpage links) on the LifeOUT.com website. In all cases, users affirmatively choose to expose or place this information in public areas of the LifeOUT.com website, and thereby agree that such information may be viewed by or forwarded to anyone. Users who do not want this information to be publicly available should not use these optional features of the LifeOUT.com website. Aggregate results of polls may be shared on the LifeOUT.com website.

LifeOUT.com may track individual IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our service, to administer our site and to gather broad demographic information. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes. User IP address information is used only for our internal purposes.
