If you configure your browser to reject cookies, you may still use some, but not all, portions of our site. For example, the login process and all member functionality requires that your browser accept cookies.
You have the option to deactivate your profile at any time which will remove it from public view on our system. If you would like to permanently delete your account please visit the Settings page of the site. Deletion will permanently remove your photos and profile information from our database.

Our general disclosure policy is as follows:
