The Contact Us page is the primary means of communication with In Search of Me Café friends, advisors and staff for a website visitor. Website visitors may use the Contact Us page to send content suggestions or questions about the various topic areas of the site directly to the In Search of Me Café editorial staff. Website visitors may also use this forum to ask general questions about the website or content, submit notification of broken links, communicate privacy concerns, and/or submit praise and/or complaints. All comments are seen by the Editor-in-Chief of In Search of Me Café who, along with advisors and staff, handle all content-related issues and will use these comments, for instance, as ideas for generating new content or answering a question in a Q&A section on the site. All technical and operational issues are forwarded to the Director of Operations for handling. The Contact Us page is secured using 128-bit encryption. Any health information submitted through the Contact Us page is not stored in a way that is personally identifiable.

A Note to Parents
In Search of Me Café is intended to be a safe resource for children 13 – 19 years old to find useful, age-appropriate information. Through the website, ISOMC takes children's privacy very seriously. ISOMC does not sell the information sent to the site, whether by children or anyone else. ISOMC does not collect any personally identifiable information from children with one exception. Our Contact Us page does not ask for any personally identifiable information. Sometimes, children may write In Search of Me Café with a personal health or medical question. ISOMC generally does not answer such questions, instead referring the visitor to content on In Search of Me Café or other websites. However, there are times when a visitor includes an email address and an advisor believes it is advisable to ask a follow-up question or offer a comment, for instance, in the case of a life-threatening condition. Only in these rare and serious instances will ISOMC respond to an individual visitor with a recommendation to seek immediate, professional help. However, it is important to note that if a user communicates a serious issue but does not include an email address, there will be no way for ISOMC to respond.

Security
ISOMC employs reasonable security measures to protect the personal information you submit to it. Such security involves the use of SSL-secured Web forms, firewalls, and other commonly employed security methods.

Emails Claiming to Be From In Search of Me Café
Occasionally, in a scam known as "phishing," mass emailers may send messages that claim to be from In Search of Me Café. They may use our name, logo, or employee email addresses in fraudulent emails trying to obtain valuable information from consumers and businesses. These con artists know that people trust In Search of Me Café. That's why they may use our name or that of some other well-known organization to trick people into believing that they are dealing with a legitimate request for personal information. These fraudulent emails often create a false sense of urgency intended to prompt the recipient to take action.

In Search of Me Café does not send out unsolicited emails or commercial endorsements, and does not ask for detailed personal information. If you get this sort of email appearing to be from In Search of Me Café, you should assume that it is fraudulent and avoid clicking any link within the email.
