If you sign up to any notifications on Megabunk, your email address will be kept private, and all notifications will be sent through the site. You can contact us using our contact form at http://www.megabunk.com/contact.php.

Your Megabunk Account. For some activities on Megabunk, like uploading pictures and contacting members, you need a Megabunk Account. We ask for some personal information when you create an account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access.

Usage Information. When you use Megabunk, we may record information about your usage of the site, such as profiles you favourite, information you display about yourself as well as information you click on in Megabunk. All messages sent on the site are recorded for security purposes. If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your Megabunk Account. In order to ensure the quality of our service to you, we may place a tag (also called a "web beacon") in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery.

If you submit personal information to Megabunk, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of Megabunk, and to process any activity or other communication you send to us.

When you send a message to another megabunk user and your preferences are set to notify you by email, then that notification may contain a text advertisement placed at the end of the email.We will not use your email address or other personal information solely to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. We may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Megabunk changes or for customer service purposes).
