Privacy Policy


We are committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please read this Privacy Policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check it periodically.

 

 

HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION

The main ways in which we collect and use information are detailed below:

 

We may from time to time ask you for further information in order to update our records or for particular purposes. We will always tell you how we will use any further information received from you. We may share aggregate data, based on users' demographics, interests, and behaviour with our advertisers or business partners but this aggregate data will not contain identifiable personal data.

Log file information, including IP addresses

Every time someone visits our web sites 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 parts of it they looked at. We collect this information to help us diagnose problems and administer our systems, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site (eg. what part of the world users are connecting from, 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 when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our terms and conditions, or to protect our services and other users.

Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on and retrieved from your computer by websites for record-keeping purposes. The use of cookies is an industry standard and you will find them in use at most major websites.

We use cookies in a variety of ways. For example:

               Cookies are the simplest way for us to track user trends and patterns, such as how many people use different parts of the website. This helps us better understand which parts of our service users find valuable, and know what areas to improve.

               We use cookies to recognise you when you visit our website, to save you time when logging in. We also use them to keep track of your personal preferences so you don't have to keep reminding us of them.

               Cookies may be used to help match advertising to particular interests. Some of the advertising displayed on the website may be provided by outside companies and may contain additional cookies belonging to our advertisers but these cookies will not contain any personal identifiable information about you.

Most computers are set up to automatically accept cookies. However, you can reset your browser settings to refuse cookies, or alert you when a cookie is being sent so you can choose whether or not to accept it. Unfortunately, if you choose to refuse our cookies, some parts of our service may be slower or not function properly.

Use and disclosure of personal information

If you contact us we may keep a record of that correspondence and incorporate the information it contains into our database.

If we are requested by the police or regulatory or government authority in 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.

HOW WE PROTECT INFORMATION

All personal information stored by us is kept on a server in a secure environment.

Your member profile is password-protected to prevent others from viewing your personal information. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible with storing your password.

[There are several areas of our website where you may be asked to transmit credit card information in order to complete a purchase transaction or for verification purposes. Any time we ask for a credit card number, it will be transmitted in an encrypted format using industry-standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.]

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online in non-protected environments for example, through email that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Also remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or 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.
