Your privacy is important to us!
1. User Profile
Your personal information is collected by Kompster when you voluntarily supply it during the Web Site registration process to create a User Profile. A User Profile is required for those users who wish to post competitions, comments or other content to the Web Site. Otherwise, registration is purely optional.
If you opt to create a User Profile with Kompster, you are asked to supply:
• A username
• Email address
You may also voluntarily provide the following additional information:
• Your City, State and Country of residence
• A link to your personal web page

4. Posting to Kompster
If you post information concerning a competition or event or submit comments to Kompster’s forum or in response to another user’s post, such information will be viewable to other users of the Web Site. Kompster is not responsible for the privacy of any information you choose to post to the Web Site nor is Kompster responsible for the accuracy of the information in your posts. Any information you post to the Web Site becomes public, non-confidential information. Once posted, Kompster cannot prevent and is not responsible for the use of that information by third parties.
As one of Kompster’s Premium Features, you can create a private event page. By doing so, your event page will not be listed in the public directory. Rather, users can only access your event page if they have the specific link for the page.
