your email address as your full name you will disclose your email address to other users
and third parties. As a result, other users and third parties might send you unsolicited email
and be able to personally identify all of your activities on the Site. Even if your full name is
not your email address, your full name can be used to identify you and your activities
throughout the Site. Other people can see the projects that you have supported in the
past, associated comments, your postings on the Site, and so on. We also provide a
number of ways to allow other users to find more out about you and your Site activities,
such as our feature that allows users to quickly see all of the projects you have created
and supported at the time. If you are involved in a transaction, we allow other users to view
your full name, email address and obtain your contact information.

providers that help you use our Site (e.g., co-branded sites, listing agents, authentication,

such disclosures or simply not use their services. Because we do not control the privacy
practices of these third parties, you should evaluate their practices before deciding to use

service provider to conduct a survey for us). In these cases, you will be notified of the
involvement of the internal service provider, and all information disclosures you make will
be strictly optional. In all cases, the information we supply the internal service providers is
restricted by confidentiality agreements. If you provide additional information to an internal
service provider directly, then their use of your information is governed by their applicable
