At times as part of your interaction with the DNP Site, you may interact with areas where you can publicly post information about yourself, communication with others (eg, on a discussion forum), review products, or provide feedback on a book series or other content. Because of the public nature of these areas, this information can be accessed by other consumers and companies and may appear on other websites or web searches meaning that this information could be read, collected, and used by others. For example, if you post your name, your email address, or other personally identifiable information in these public areas, you may receive unsolicited communications. We have no control over who reads the material in these public areas or what others may do with such information that you have voluntarily posted.

The DNP Site may allow users to access Facebook Connect, or other social media tools like Twitter, Digg, or Stumble Upon, to interact with friends and to share their DNP Site experiences on such social media sites (eg, the Facebook Wall and friends’ News Feeds). In the event that you want to utilize such integrated tools, you may be required to log into them using such mechanisms as provided by the DNP Site and the social media site to facilitate such interaction between the two. For example, if you click on “Facebook Connect” your profiles will merge if the email address of your DNPe Site login and your Facebook login match.
