the only reason to be disturbed during our work by privacy issues is that a component of the community use the base of names and e-mail (we are collecting to keep each-other in contact), for a spamming or unauthorized commercial advertising.
Be please aware that in this moment we are not able to manage a totally private contact, then names and e-mails used for the accademy are sometime (rarely IMO) exposed to a little sharing with teachers and other students.
Of course we never use it for spam or commercials, but if you want to keep absolute privacy during academy involvement, please use secondary e-mails or nicknames.
We think anyway possible to fix it in a short time, collecting the collaboration of networking experts.
(sorry, we are mainly musicians... )
