Our Privacy Policy


At Seeing-Stars.com, we never ask for your name, address, email address or telephone number on any part of our website. If you email us, we will never knowingly sell your name or email address to others, nor will we disclose such information to others unless you ask us to (unless required to by law.) If you write us, however, we may send you email of our own, which we believe you want to receive (due to your interest in this website) - replies to your questions & comments, or updates about what's new on the Seeing-Stars website. We may also reserve the right to publish selected quotes from email that we feel would be informative for our readers (using only your first name). If you don't wish to receive updates or newsletters from us, just let us know (via email at webmaster@seeing-stars.com) and we will promptly remove your name from our mailing list.

Note: If you mouse click on advertising banners, or on links to other sites, that click may well take you off the Seeing-Stars.com website, to totally different websites which are not controlled by us. These other websites might collect personal information and/or use it ways different than we do. To be sure, you should review the Privacy Policy of these other websites. Some ads on the site may set cookies of their own.


You may also want to review the Privacy Policy of Womens Forum, an ad agency which supplies most of the ads on this site.

Their privacy policy, which they have asked me to post, follows:
