Privacy Policy and Terms of Service (TOS)

Please review the following terms of service carefully. These are the terms that govern all use of Merrillville Alumni's services. Our site is only for individuals 18 years of age and older.

REGISTRATION PROCESS   You can begin using our site by filling out our online registration form. By registering with us, you agree to provide accurate and current information about yourself and to update that information if it changes. For quality control, Merrillville Alumni will occasionally send confirmation emails to you to verify your email address has not been changed. If the confirmation email "bounces" back, we may deactivate your membership. It is your responsibility to make sure we always have your current email address. If we do not, we will not be able to pass information from your Merrillville Alumni to you (which is one of the main purposes of our site).

PRIVACY   Merrillville Alumni respects the privacy of its members. While we do our best to safeguard your information, please remember that privacy over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, we discourage the posting of detailed personal information. It is against our policy to sell or rent your personal information to other companies. We may provide your personal information to the police or other investigating agencies to assist them in the investigation of any suspected violations of law. We also have the right to share your name and contact information with our attorneys in the event of serious violations of conduct.
