Types of information collected
We may collect and process the following data about you:
Like most websites, we gather statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate basis of all visitors to our site. This non-personal data comprises information that cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information regarding, for example, user IP addresses where they have been clipped or anonymised, browser types and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our site.
This is data that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you and may include your name, address, email address, user IP addresses in circumstances where they have not been deleted, clipped or anonymised, telephone number and billing and credit card information. Such information is only collected from you if you voluntarily submit it to us, e.g. by sending us an email and the information you provide at the time of signing-up to be a member of our services.
WHERE WE STORE YOUR DATA
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Purposes for which we hold your information

contact you about these by email, SMS, post or telephone;

Disclosure of information to third parties
We may provide non-personal data to third parties, where such information is combined with similar information of other users of our site, known as aggregate information. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who visit our site, the demographic breakdown of our community users of our site, or the activities that visitors to our site engage in while on our site. The third parties to whom we may provide this information may include, potential or actual advertisers, providers of advertising services (including website tracking services), commercial partners, sponsors, licensees, researchers and other similar parties.
We may permit selected third parties to use your data to provide you with information about goods and services which may be of interest to you and they may contact you about these.

This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Your personal data is held on secure servers. Unfortunately, the nature of the Internet is such that the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and although we will do our best to protect your data, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us via the internet. No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and any transmission is at your own risk. However, we will take all strict reasonable procedures (including appropriate technical and organisational measures) to try to protect your personal data and prevent unauthorised access.
Updating, verifying and deleting personal data
You may inform us of any changes in your personal data, and in accordance with our obligations under the data protection legislation we will grant you a right of access to your personal data accordingly.
