User identification

You are not required to identify yourself when making use of the Service, except when such identifying information is required to access the site's transactional tools or when you accept an offer to participate in a group or research project. At the same time, the more accurate, complete and current your personal information, the easier it will be to tailor the Service to your requirements.
