Question about star membership

If I purchase star membership, does my personal info get stored on this site? The only reason I haven't so far is because of worry that the site will be hacked again. I can do paypal, if that is a safer way.

4. Any membership info is on a server separate from the DU forums and groups, I think.

5. Thanks everyone - update

I emailed DU, and received a response in case anyone is curious:

"Star Membership purchases are processed entirely through PayPal -- no private data is stored or passed on to our servers."

So it's all good...

12. Well that sucks

If you paid through paypal you probably can reverse one of the payments. I think theres a spot to put a note, or you could email DU and give them a heads up.
