When I view your profile, I don't see your zip code. I'm confused to where you are seeing your zip code?



If you are talking about advertisements, those are based on you internet IP address..every site can pull up that information. No one sees it but you, it helps the advertisers to cater to your local places.

If you don't like it, you should try a ad blocker on your computer.

Why we ask for your zip code

We collect ZIP for two reasons

First, sometimes we send you guys info on beauty events that are happening in your town, or if Total Beauty is hosting an event in your town. (We need to know who lives in, for example, Philadelphia, so we know who to invite.)

Secondly, we like to know know demographics of our readers -- for example, are you all NY/CA people, what climate you're in -- so we know how to write stories that you care about. We don't display your location for other users to see so your information is prviate and safe.

I hope this makes you feel better. Feel free to send me any questions directly at Tracy@totalbeauty.com

This must be from the old profile style.  It does ask for zip code, but you don't have to put your real one.  LOL  Also, someone said something about their age showing up, but mine doesn't have it on the basic statistics.  I mentioned it in the box where it says to say something about yourself if you want.

I think some styles haven't converted yet.  I started a separate topic on profile styles, old vs. new.
