To be able to post content and use the services of the EBT Web site, you must first register by providing your name, your email address, and create a user name and password. The site may require additional registration information, such as telephone number and mailing address, to gain access to additional services and areas.

During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We use this information to contact you about the services on our site, and validate your membership. In the future, we may also ask for demographic information, such as age, to develop a profile of our members to help us develop future services and better market our services.


Invites and Other Referrals

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend?s e-mail address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time e-mail inviting him or her to visit the site. EBT does not store the friends? information; instead, we rely on unique promotion codes to track the success of our referral program. We do track which promotion codes were generated from your referrals and which resulted in new registrations.
