Information That We Collect
When you create an account you are required to provide your actual first and last name (fake names may result in your account and site access being revoked), a valid email address, a username and password, and some location information. We also log and retain the IP address from which the account was initially created.
Each of the different bottles that you post have different levels of privacy and security built into them, the following is a breakdown of how this data is collected and used:
When a bottle is posted we collect from you; the time at which this bottle was created, the name of the intended recipient/s (whether targeted or open to the community), the location in which you intend to place this bottle, written clues that you wish to include for the intended recipient/s about the bottles location, images that you may choose to upload and the message.
Where applicable this data is used to lock the contents of the bottle from view for any user other than its intended recipient/s. While we provide tools for you to keep certain bottle types private between you and the recipient/s, we can not guarantee that it will only be opened by them - it is up to you to make your secret question secure enough so that only the intended recipient/s will be able to “guess” the answer.
The contents of bottles are accessible only to the intended recipients however they may be accessed internally by 'Do You Think About Me?' site administrators for support related issues. Even after the deletion of a user's account the contents of bottles are stored indefinitely on our database and will be deleted at our discretion.

This site was inspired by the thought that everyone has something they'd like to say to someone. Other sites force you to have to track them down and almost stalk them to say what you want to say. This site lets you send a message into the world that can be found only if the receiver comes looking.
Maybe you'd like to say something to a friend or relative you've lost contact with for some reason. Maybe you just want to get something off your chest and don't care if they reply or not. Maybe "don't care" isn't the right phrase. Perhaps it's just that you don't want to pressure a response from them. There was no avenue we were aware of that allowed this avenue of communication. This site was developed to allow a fun and simple way to allow for these connections and so many more possibilities.
Create a treasure hunt, or other games using a mixture of bottle types. Code HTML directly into bottles to add some extra character to the content you create. We have no idea how things will pan out in this place but hopefully you guys can show us what can be done. In the meantime we'll keep adding toys and features and awaiting your suggestions.
