Site Rules/Privacy Policy/Profanity Rules

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through this Website. This Privacy Policy has been adopted ("Privacy Policy") to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through our Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms of Use posted on our Website, sets forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Website. Depending on your activities when visiting our Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

This Privacy Policy remains posted on our Website and you should review it frequently, as it may change from time to time without notice. Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Privacy Policy. WHEN YOU ACCESS OUR WEBSITE, YOU AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, OR TO ANY CHANGES WE MAY SUBSEQUENTLY MAKE, IMMEDIATELY STOP ACCESSING OUR WEBSITE.

A. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Our Website typically collects two kinds of information about you: (a) information that you provide that personally identifies you; and (b) information that does not personally identify you, which we automatically collect when you visit our Website or that you provide us.

(1) Personally Identifiable Information: Our definition of personally identifiable information includes any information that may be used to specifically identify or contact you, such as your name, postal address, phone number, etc. As a general policy, we do not automatically collect your personally identifiable information when you visit our Website. In certain circumstances, we may request, allow or otherwise provide you an opportunity to submit your personally identifiable information in connection with a feature, program, promotion or some other aspect of our Website. For instance, you may: (a) provide your name, postal/shipping address, e-mail address, credit card number and phone number when registering with our Website, using our online store, or in connection with a contest entry; (b) provide certain demographic information about you (e.g., age, gender, purchase preference, usage frequency, etc.) when participating in a survey, poll or joining a club; or (c) post a general comment and/or recommendation on our Website. Certain information may not be personally identifiable when standing alone (e.g., your age), but may become so when combined with other information (e.g., your age and name). Whether or not you provide this information is your choice; however, in many instances this type of information is required to participate in the particular activity, realize a benefit we may offer, or gain access to certain content on our Website.

(2) Non-Personal Information: The definition of non-personal information is any information that does not personally identify you. Non-personal information can include certain personally identifiable information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. We obtain non-personal information about you from information that you provide us, either separately or together with your personally identifiable information. We also automatically collect certain non-personal information from you when you access our Website. This information can include, among other things, IP addresses, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.), the third party website from which your visit originated, the operating system you are using (e.g., Vista, Windows XP, Mac OS, etc.), the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, NetZero, etc.), the search terms you use on our Website, the specific web pages you visit, and the duration of your visits.

B. HOW WE USE & SHARE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED
(1) Personally Identifiable Information: The personally identifiable information you submit to us is generally used to carry out your requests, respond to your inquiries, better serve you, or in other ways naturally associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information. We may also use this information to later contact you for a variety of reasons, such as customer service, providing you promotional information for our products or those of our parent company, subsidiaries or other affiliated companies (""affiliated companies""), or to communicate with you about content or other information you have posted or shared with us via our Website. You may opt-out from receiving future promotional information from us or our affiliated companies, or direct that we not share your information with any affiliated companies, as set forth below.

In certain instances we may also share your personally identifiable information with our third party vendors performing functions on our behalf (or on behalf of our affiliated companies) - e.g., vendors that process credit card orders, deliver our merchandise, administer our promotions, provide us marketing or promotional assistance, analyze our data, assist us with customer service, etc. Our vendors agree to use this information, and we share information with them, only to carry out our requests. In addition, we may share your personally identifiable information with participating sponsors to a program or promotion (e.g., a sweepstakes or contest) you enter via our Website, and with third parties who assist us in using the content or other information you have posted or shared with us via our Website (e.g., production companies we may use). Further, we may share your personally identifiable information with third parties such as our co-promotional partners and others with whom we have marketing or other relationships. Except as provided in this Privacy Policy, our Terms of Use, or as set forth when you submit the information, your personally identifiable information will not be shared or sold to any third parties without your prior approval.

(2) Non-Personal Information: We use non-personal information in a variety of ways, including to help analyze site traffic, understand customer needs and trends, carry out targeted promotional activities, and to improve our services. We may use your non-personal information by itself or aggregate it with information we have obtained from others. We may share your non-personal information with our affiliated companies and third parties to achieve these objectives and others, but remember that aggregate information is anonymous information that does not personally identify you.

C. OTHER USES & INFORMATION
(1) IP Addresses: An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Internet. Web servers (computers that "serve up" web pages) automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When visitors request pages from our Website, our servers typically log their IP addresses. We collect IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report non-personal aggregate information to others, and to track the use of our Website. IP addresses are considered non-personal information and may also be shared as provided above. It is not our practice to link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable; that is, the visitor's session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. However, we reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify a visitor when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Website rules or to: (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our Website, or other users; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of our Website's users or the general public.

These text files make using our Website more convenient by, among other things, saving your passwords and preferences for you. Cookies themselves do not typically contain any personally identifiable information. We may analyze the information derived from these cookies and other technological tools we employ (such as clear gifs/web beacons) and match this information with data provided by you or another party. We may provide our analysis and certain non-personal information to third parties (who may in turn use this information to provide advertisements tailored to your interests), but this will not involve disclosing any of your personally identifiable information. Please note that advertisers that serve advertisements on our Website and third-party content providers that serve content on our Website may also use their own cookies and other technological tools which are subject to the advertiser's privacy policies, not this Privacy Policy.

(3) E-mail Communications: If you send us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. Aside from our reply to such an e-mail, it is not our standard practice to send you e-mail unless you request a particular service or we have a message for you that is not appropriate for the board. purpose.

(4) Other: Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, we reserve the right to disclose any personally identifiable or non-personal information about you if we are required to do so by law, with respect to copyright and other intellectual property infringement claims, or if we believe that such action is necessary to: (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our Website, or other users; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of our Website's users or the general public.

Goddam Profanity Rules

Okay c'mon, you gotta be fucking kidding, right?

Well, yes and no.  As far as the community forum is concerned, anything goes.  That's what a forum is about (with the exception of profanity used to abuse, bullying or just being downright ugly, in which case the posting will be deleted and the asshole(s) banned from the forum. Same goes for anything sexually explicit or offensive. We're all sensible, we all know where the line is.)

Otherwise, I strive to write everything on this site in a conversational, Southern tone.  I was born about 25 miles from Orlando, the son of a 4th generation Floridian.  I've been living in Tampa for 25 years, but have never lost my small town Florida roots.

In the South (and yes, those of us from Central Florida consider ourselves as much Southerners as say, Alabamans, we talk like JJ does (and when he talks, Daryl too.)  Profanity is not meant nor intended to offend; it's just part of the vocabulary.  It's part of our blood.

We don't say:  "The dog got out and ran down the street."

We say: "That goddam dog done run out the door and took off down the fucking street."

Doesn't that sound, well...better? 

All that being said, I'm going to abbreviate profanities throughout the site because if there is an excessive amount then the search engines could classify the site in the wrong categories, plus there may be a slight few people viewing the site who could be offended, or people under 18.

I don't why someone who's offended by profanity would be a Mofro fan, but hell I can't figure out why people like Justin Timberlake either.

I've often seen folks bring their kids to Mofro shows, and would have to agree that JJ's lyrics are sedate compared to a lot of songs kids listen to today.  But since the parents ain't sitting here telling me whether it's alright for their kids to be here, or not, I decided to be slightly clean because I want everyone to enjoy the site and tell their friends and come back often.

That would mean that, basically, I'll endeavor to avoid profanity on the site except on the board and got no problem with others doing the same.

Lastly, the word "shit" is NOT a profanity! In the South, it's interchangeable with anything.

It's just part of the vocabulary.  Not everyone is comfortable saying "fuck" at anytime, anywhere.  But "shit"...sh-iiiiiiiiiiit.  We teach it in our schools as grammar examples.

Noun: "Don't step in that pile of dog shit."

Verb: "I ain't shitting you, I done seen a flying seegar."

Adverb: "I done so shitty on my driving test they done took my fucking driver's license away."

Pronoun: "I shit, you shit, he shit, she shit, they shit, we shit, it shit."

Personal Pronoun: "That fucker over there thinks he's the shit."

Proper Noun: "Mr. Shithead"

Adjective: "I got so shit-faced at the Mofro New Year's Eve show that I threw up on JJ."

Preposition: "To get to the fishin' hole, we gonna have to hack through all this shit."
