PRIVACY ISSUES

OUR ANTI-STALKING CLAUSE

RESPECTING PRIVACY RIGHTS

Many of the spots listed here are on private property, and many are private residences, the occupants of which may be blissfully unaware that your favorite rock star lived there twenty years ago. Common courtesy dictates that you not disturb the current occupants, and trespassing laws make it illegal to intrude upon private property without proper permission. Reports of discourteous or illegal behavior by our users will be passed on to the appropriate authorities, including the user's Internet Service Provider. Upon request, OnThisVerySpot.com will cooperate in the prosecution of anyone who uses the information on this website to violate privacy laws.
