This Privacy Policy in no way limits or restricts our collection of aggregate information or of other non-personal information. “Non-Personal Information” means information or data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual.

MeanFreePath stores and processes information in the United States. If you reside outside the United States, you understand that your Personal Information may be processed in countries (including the United States) where laws regarding processing personal information may be less stringent than in your country.

Your email address will not be publicly visible to other users on the Service. We encourage you to consider carefully what information to share as part of your Account profile and elsewhere in the Service, and we recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and not use your real name as your username, as that may allow other users of the Service to identify you.
