PRIVACY POLICY -- not even bored people will read

Fred messaged about an email from facebook requiring us to put up a privacy policy ASAP for We had made the sign-up process for via facebook for now -- reason maybe in another post. So I made one in a rush. 

Inspired by Automattic, wordpress creator, of making their privacy policy available to be used by others. I'm also posting this privacy policy I made for Note that I gather "inspiration" from the following web apps:
* Wordpress - -- I always admire how wordpress evolve. They're not the glitzy kind of blog service provider but I'm always amaze at how they grow their service. They're not the type who integrates all the new hip trend right away. But once they add it to their service, it's very well-done and sensible that it feels that they really thought through it before giving it to the public.
* 37Signals - -- They're one of the best "content designer." Looking at their web apps, there's nothing so smashing about it. But it's their blend of visual and content design that gives it oommpphhh. I love how they craft their "texts."
* Instagram - -- Because facebook owns them. So their privacy policy must be so tuned-in with facebook.
* Twitter -- -- because I love twidder! =) But with how "free" their app before, their privacy can be a tad complicated.
* Yahoo! flickr -- -- Because they're older than google. They must have the wisdom. Surprisingly, how complicated can their service be but their policy is a breeze to read.
* Piclyf -- -- Because I can! They're from PH so I was thinking maybe there is something unique to PH. But none. It looks like we have the same inspiration -- wordpress.

So the final product, which may not be at all final. Anyhoo, after reading here and there policy, I think the gist is just to let the community that we'll not be making money out by selling their information. And, in between lines, different services have different way of saying it. 
At, we provide a venue for active people to inspire others, and find events where they can be more active. It's already quite a privilege that you, passionate people, are and will be using our service. Thus, there's no way we are going to exploit your goodness.
