What information do we collect and why do we need it?
During transactions, we ask for some personal details. We need to know your name and email address.
We may, from time to time, ask you for further information in order to update our records, or for specific purposes. We will always tell you how we will use any further information received from you. We may share aggregate data, based on user demographics, interests and behaviour with our advertisers or business partners but this aggregate data will not contain personally identifiable data. From time to time, we conduct surveys and promotions and may request information from you as part of these. Participation in these activities is entirely voluntary and you have the choice whether or not to disclose any information which might be requested.
If you contact us we may keep a record of that correspondence and incorporate the information it contains into our database.
If you would like to revise the information provided to us, or feel what we currently have on record is incorrect, you may update the information by emailing our company at firstname.lastname@example.org
Disclosure of personal information
We may also ask you whether you would like to receive promotional emails and mailings from us about our other products or services, or from other companies about their products and services which may be of interest to you. We do not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.
We will only pass on your details to other companies if you have indicated that you would like to receive further information from them.
If we are requested by the police or a regulatory or government authority investigating illegal activities to provide information concerning your activities whilst using the network, we shall do so. Similarly, we will disclose your personal data as part of a transaction whereby our company or business assets are transferred to a third party, or if we are compelled to do so by law.
Correcting/Updating personal information
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you are entitled to a copy of your personal data, held by us, on payment of a fee.
How we protect information
We take every precaution to protect your information. To this end, all personal information stored by us is kept on a server in a secure environment. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.
We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or receive from our online products or services and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
You acknowledge that the Internet is not a 100% secure medium for communication and, accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you send to us (or we send to you) via the Internet. We are not responsible for any damages which you, or others, may suffer as a result of the loss of confidentiality of such information
Every time someone visits our website, a log file is generated on our computer. This contains information such as the user's IP (Internet Protocol) address, how long that user spent on the site and which areas of the site they looked at. We collect this information to help us diagnose problems, administer our systems and to report aggregate information to our advertisers, as well as to audit the use of our site (e.g. from which part of the world users are connecting, or what ISPs are being used).
We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that you remain anonymous, even though we include your IP address in our aggregate information. However, we can and will attempt to use IP addresses to identify a user, where necessary, in order to enforce compliance with our terms and conditions, or to protect our services and other users.
