5/29/2005 - Update to Privacy Policy

Snapzilla user registration - registered forum users are now able to use their SLU login to sign into the Snapzilla site. To support this feature, it is necessary to associate their avatar name with their SLU account by sending an email postcard to /FONT> (or ) with the email address used to register for SLuniverse as the subject. After processing, the snapshot will be discarded and the avatar name from Second Life will be linked to the SLuniverse login. This one time process only associates an avatar name with a forum account, it does not save any additional information. Avatar keys are not provided by the postcard functionality, only name.

This additional step is necessary to ensure that only the avatar who took the picture is able to edit it. There is no way to spoof the avatar name coming from SL in the postcard (even if you change the From: line), so this step ensures that the postcard came from the authorized person.
