Journalfen.net is a specialized web-based service that allows its media
fen users to create and update online journals (herein referred to as
"JournalFen", or "the Service"). The Service can be
updated through a web browser as well as by the use of a desktop client
("the Software"). Each user is expected to be considered a part
of an online community commonly known as 'media fen'. These members participate
as fans of various media such as television, film and print media in an
entertainment capacity. Individual or community journals primarily based
on religion and/or politics do not qualify as entertainment media and
are not permitted. Once registered with Journalfen.net, each user receives
his or her own journal space to post text, data, messages, or information
concerning or linked to various entertainment media ("the Content").
This Content may reside on JournalFens servers or on the servers
of a third party should the capability come available to journalfen.
III. ACCOUNT AVAILABILITY
All accounts, paid and free, are available in accordance with our policy
that no one under the age of 18 may register; Journalfen.net reserves

Account registration and verification is required in order to create a
JournalFen journal. During registration, all users are required to provide
accurate, complete and current information about themselves in all required
fields. Should any of your information change after submitting it to JournalFen,

purposes or verification that the user meets the minimum age requirement.
Personal information required in the course of registration remains confidential.
Journalfen will never release your personal information, to anyone, except
as may be required by law, or in the course of any possible legal proceedings.

to protect. Journalfen will never sell, or otherwise make available, information
