About this site


♦  By accessing and browsing the SinganiUSA.com website you affirm that you are 21 years of age or older.

♦  We do not secretly collect, save, track, distribute or sell any information about you.  We will save your account name, password, and membership information only if you want us to.  Your privacy is important to us.

♦  This site is and probably always will be a work in progress

♦  There is always something more we want to add and something we want to change, and possibly to remove

♦  We also want you involved, so there will always be changes here and there based on that

♦  We would rather grow the site gradually, by starting out small and always adding things, rather than putting a large monolith out there that never seems to change

♦  So, if this website seems a bit underdone right now, keep coming back, it will always be growing and changing

♦  We have also made a conscious decision to minimize Flash; if you don't see a lot of flashy stuff on this site it's by design, we'd like the site to be reasonably friendly to your mobile and portable devices and/or IE64 if you're using it.  We do however have some links to "You Tube" videos which require Flash and which may or may not function on your device.
