Information you give us:
We receive and store any information you enter on the Website or give us in any other way. You provide this information when you search, participate in discussion forums, or communicate with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise. As a result of those actions you might supply us with such information as your name, address, post code, date of birth, gender, information on how you use our services (such as type, date, time, and information on your browsing activity when visiting the Website) and any other information with respect of your use of the Website or our services.
We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future use of the Website for you, improving the Website and communicating with you.
• The ‘help’ portion of a toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to protect your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, if you turn cookies off you won’t have access to some of the features that make the Website more efficient and services may not function properly.
• Web bugs are minute images (commonly 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that transmit data on use of the internet back to a computer specified by the web bug. Information fed back by web bugs is often similar to the sort of information you will find in a cookie, such as the sites that you have recently visited and potentially the characteristics of the machine that you were using. Reconfiguring the browser’s cookie settings as described above, may prevent web bugs from tracking your activity on this website. There are web sites available that will tell you more about web bugs.
Do we share the information received?
The website collects and uses your personal information to operate and deliver any services you have requested. We will not sell, rent or lease user lists to third parties. You consent to use of any personal details you give for internal administrative purposes, for marketing, and for release to third parties either for gain or without charge. Additionally you acknowledge that the Company may sell or buy other assets or that someone else may take over the running of this site. The legal status of the Company or its ownership could also change. In this type of transaction, customer information generally is one of the assets transferred. You acknowledge that your data could be transferred as part of the process and consent to that transfer. We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
We will also give out personal information as required by law, for example to comply with a Court Order or to protect the safety and security of users on the Website.
If you give us your fax, phone or e-mail details, you authorise us or our associates to contact you using that method. If you decide that you no longer wish us to communicate with you, or the details we hold on you change, you agree to tell us to enable us to update our records.
How secure is information about me?
• The security of all personal data is of the utmost concern to us. We take technical, contractual, administrative and physical steps to protect all of the user information that we hold. Despite this, no system is guaranteed to be 100% secure and you acknowledge that the information you give us may be at risk.
• It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to log out when using a shared computer (such as in an internet café or college) and take steps to make sure your personal information has not been stored by that computer or a network connected to it. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to maintain the secrecy of your username and passwords and any account information.
