Share It Up is committed to respecting your privacy. Our web portal, Share it Up products and other services can better help you protect your privacy. We recognize your need for control of personally identifiable information that you share with Share It Up. Personally identifiable information is information that only pertains to you as an individual such as your name, address, phone number or credit card number. Share It Up does not collect sensitive information about individuals except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals.
In addition to providing you with secure services, Share It Up uses a digitally signed certificate to process all sensitive information securely through SSL encryption. This encryption may also be used during the registration process and user login, and is the only method used for credit card processing.
In order to use this Web site, you must first register for an account with Share It Up. The user account name that you create will be used as your Screen name.

If you are signing up for any of Share It Up's paid accounts, you will be required to enter your credit card type, card number, CCID number, expiration date of your card, your name as it appears on your account, the billing address on your account, and your telephone number.
