What we do with your information
We will use members’ email addresses to respond to requests and to send updates about new content on the site and special events organized by the National Eating Disorders Association. We may also directly communicate with members by email if their forum posts or blog comments are in violation of the Proud2Bme Community Guidelines. Information collected at Proud2Bme will be stored as long as the National Eating Disorders Association deems reasonably necessary and practicable for the purposes of Proud2Bme, or to otherwise meet legal requirements.
