How we use collected information
raddit.me may collect and use Users personal information for the following purposes:
To run and operate our Site, each User is identified by their IP address, this allows us to remove spammers and trolls more effectively by banning their IP addresses.

The only exception to this is Users that are "IP banned" by the site administrators. We will store the IPs of users that are banned site-wide for as long as we need to in order to prevent spam and abuse, or until they are unbanned.
We will use the provided email address to allow Users to reset their passwords.
