User Group will always protect the personal information that you share with us. User Group stores information internally in a controlled, secure environment.

If User Group requests general demographic information, this information is limited to reporting purposes only; members remain anonymous. Phone numbers, email addresses, and postal addresses are never shared for demographic reports with outside entities.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website.
