General Accounts minimally require users to provide their name, email address, and a password. Other personal information may optionally be provided by the users. None of this information will be provided to a third party without the consent of the user.

In addition to the person information required for General Accounts, those who choose to advertise with Composite Minds may be required to provide financial information such as a credit card number. Financial information is used for the sole purpose of obtaining payment for services and products rendered by Composite Minds for the Advertiser. Upon completion on the financial transaction, financial information will not be retained by Composite Minds without the consent of the Advertiser. Furthermore, financial information will never provided to a third party without the consent of the Advertiser.

1.3 Third Party Payment Options

Currently, Composite Minds uses the services of third party organizations (such as PayPal, Inc.) to process some financial transactions.
