Visitors to our Website who sign up for a membership account for the purpose of using one or more of our services provide us with personal information. If you register with us, we will collect name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, birth date, username and password, and possible other contact information. Future plans include a birthday.com reminder system. As part of that system, you have the option of setting up an address book of your friends’ birth dates and email addresses. The information we collect may vary. We may store all or some of this information such as your login user name in a cookie file on your hard drive so that our system will recognize you each time you visit
our Website. In that way, we can save your preferences between visits and present you with a customized Website each time you visit.
We have no minimum age requirement for visitors to our site. Birthdays are happy times for people of all ages, and we encourage minors to become members. Parents are assured that we will keep all personal information private for all members.
