- About Blasterous and the Information We Collect
- Profile Information submitted by Members to Blasterous
Blasterous is an online community that lets you connect with people and business local to you.. To accomplish this, each Blasterous Member creates his or her own profile, which contains a list of information relevant to the member. This personal information includes such things as:
Other Information submitted by Members to Blasterous
- First name or first and last names of the Member (depending on the options selected by the Member),
- Location (e.g., city and state), and
- Photos, videos or other shared content uploaded by the Member to his or her profile, to the extent that it includes personal information.
Blasterous also collects Member-submitted account information such as name and email address to identify Members, send notifications related to the use of the Blasterous service and conduct market research and marketing for Blasterous's internal use only.
Information Not Directly Submitted by Members or Other Website Users to Blasterous
Finally, we may also collect some information from Members, as well as from other visitors to the Blasterous website, that is not personally identifiable, such as browser type and IP address. This information is gathered from all Members and visitors to the website.
Use of Information Obtained by Blasterous

Except where a Member might choose to include a full name in his or her profile, a Member's email address and full name will only be used in the following circumstances:
- When the Member invites a friend via email to become a Blasterous Member,
- When the Member sends a request to another Member to add the other Member to his or her friend list,
- When we send notifications to the Member relating to his or her use of the Blasterous service or Blasterous website, and
- If the Member so chooses, when we send regular notifications, weekly updates, or other news regarding the Blasterous service or the Blasterous website.
Except when inviting or adding friends or as otherwise expressly set forth herein, a Member's email address will never be shared with or displayed to any other person. Members and their friends, and other Members within their personal networks (depending on the level of sharing a Member has chosen) communicate on Blasterous with each other through the Blasterous service, without disclosing email addresses.

Sharing of the Information this Site Gathers/Tracks
Invite a Friend
If a Member elects to use our "Invite" feature to invite a friend to become a Member of the Blasterous service, we ask them for that friend's email address. Blasterous will automatically send the friend an email inviting them to join the site. Blasterous stores this email address for the purpose of: (i) automatically adding the respondent to the "friends list" of the Member sending the invitation; (ii) sending reminders of the invitation and (iii) sending emails on recent updates by the Member on Blasterous to the Member's invited friend. Blasterous will never sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides invitations and invitation reminders. Any person who receives an invitation may contact Blasterous to request the removal of this information from our database.
The Blasterous account of every Member is password-protected. Blasterous takes every precaution to protect the information of the Members, as well as information collected from other users of the Blasterous website. We use industry standard measures to protect all information that is stored on our servers and within our database. We limit the access to this information to those employees who need access to perform their job function such as our customer service personnel. If you have any questions about the security at our website, please contact us.
Members who no longer wish to receive our weekly email updates or other email notifications may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the instructions contained in the applicable email or by logging-in and changing their settings in the "Account Settings" section of the Blasterous website. You can access this page by clicking on the "Settings" link on the top right of your Blasterous homepage.
