WHERE THIS POLICY APPLIES
HOW YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IS PROTECTED
This site uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption on most areas of the website to protect your information. The exception is the main page (“thedudenextdoor.com”) that is not encrypted because you are not asked for any personal information. You can tell you are visiting a protected section of this website because the URL will start with “https://thedudenextdoor.com.”
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
This website collects only the personal information needed for you to access the site (“login”), specifically your username and password. Your username is viewable by anyone who operates this website. Your username will also be visible to other members if you choose to leave a comment or participate in groups or forums. Your password is stored in an encrypted manner and is not viewable by any person operating or accessing this website. Despite the security measures used to protect your login information, there are always unscrupulous individuals who will attempt to hack your account. You are encouraged to choose strong passwords that are difficult to guess and include a mix of numbers, letters (upper- and lower-case) and symbols.
COLLECTION OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Information that is not personally identifying, such as IP address, browser/version, operating system, search keywords/terms and other general information is automatically collected by the server for this website. This information can not be used to identify you personally, except for IP address, which can identify you with the use of technology which is not used by this website.
INFORMATION YOU CHOOSE TO SHARE ON THE WEBSITE
Any and all comments you make on any post or page in any area or section of this website are viewable by any and all individuals who operate or access this website. All comments are associated with your account and have an “author” tag. This will be your username.

Exceptions to this policy will be made as required by law.
DISCLOSURE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Non-personal information is collected and aggregated solely to improve the function of this website. This information may, from time to time, be shared in aggregate form on this website.
