When I register as a user, why do you ask for personal information?

You are asked for your first and last names because the whole site and surveys are personalized for you. Year of birth is required for legal purposes; you are not allowed to register if you are below the legal age. Finally, you are asked to specify your gender because the surveys are customized to be gender-specific.

Unless you chose to make your profile public to other SelfStir.com users, this information will never be shared or made public in any way.
