5. PUBLIC IFORUMS/CHAT CAFE/COMMENT CORNER/COMMUNITY SUPPORT, Ask the Expert
Throughout the IranDokht various public forums such as chat Café, Comment Corner, Community Support, Ask the Expert areas and various question and answer areas are available to you as a registered IranDokht member. Please remember that any information you disclose in these public forum areas becomes public information and is immediately accessible on the IranDokht, so it is important for you to exercise discretion and appropriate caution when deciding to reveal personal information in these areas. IranDokht may decide to utilize the content of Q&A's, interactions with experts, and/or chat café, Comment corner, and Community Support throughout the IranDokht and in promotions in order to enhance IranDokht editorial, advertising, promotional and similar activities. We may credit you for these and therefore encourage you to use care in protecting your identity when you choose a member name and to keep your member name confidential.

6. Order forms and transactions with e-commerce partners and advertisers
The information provided via order forms is generally shared with advertisers and partners on an aggregated basis. In the event that an advertiser or partner wishes to offer free samples, or provide information about products and services and to do so requires personally identifiable information, IranDokht will provide you with the ability to "opt-in" and will often provide you access to the Privacy Policy of the advertiser for your review via a link. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, an IranDokht member or visitor to submit or receive information, as the case may be, generally defines "opt-in" as any affirmative action.
When you provide personal financial and other personally identifiable information to one of IranDokht's e-commerce partners, this transaction will occur on the e-commerce partner's site, not the IranDokht and as such the financial and personally identifiable information you provide is collected by and controlled by the Privacy Policy of that e-commerce partner. It is important therefore that you familiarize yourself with the Privacy Policy of the e-commerce site with which you transact business.

7. Change/modify/archived information
IranDokht provides you with the ability to access, correct or change certain information in your member portrait at any time, including contact information or other information you've provided to us. However, you cannot currently change your member name although you may re-register and choose a new name. To review, modify or delete your member information, please Log In and then Click Up Date Information. Please be advised that IranDokht currently archives information it collects on its members and visitors.

8. Guidelines regarding children
Personal information about children is a concern for all of us. At IranDokht, we take the protection of children's privacy very seriously. IranDokht does not encourage participation or visitation by children. Visitors who are known to be under the age of 13 are prohibited from becoming a member. Anyone under the age of eighteen is discouraged from participating in any sex related chats or discussions and we ask that no one less than eighteen years of age become a community volunteer.
