1. The Information We Collect

We do not collect personally identifiable information about you, e.g. your name, address, telephone number, e-mail, etc., unless you choose to complete and submit a registration web form to us or if you contact us directly.

You should be aware that you may be making available personally identifiable information about yourself when you submit material to be posted to the site, e.g. for forums or other interactive elements of the site. Please take care when doing so.

We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site – such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using and the domain name of your Internet service.

2. How We Use Information We Collect

We use non-personally identifiable information to review site usage, e.g. information as to which pages are more popular than others, which allows us to improve the design and content of our site. We may also share this information with our current or potential commercial partners, e.g. investors, sponsors and advertisers for the site etc.

We use the personally identifiable information you provide to us in your web form to administer your registration and to provide you with the personalized features and the particular site service(s) for which that registration was necessary.

We use the personally identifiable information you provide to us when you contact us directly to respond to your specific inquiry or to administer the relevant site activity to which it relates, e.g. to enter you into a site competition or to supply information or goods you have requested.

If you reside in the European Economic Area (EEA) personal information you provide to us will not be transferred outside of the EEA, where the data protection laws may differ from those within the EEA, unless you expressly agree to such transfer or this is otherwise in accordance with applicable law.

Please be aware that in certain circumstances it may be necessary to disclose personally identifiable information in accordance with applicable law, e.g. in response to a legal process or in accordance with other legitimate interests such as if our business is sold.

3. Marketing Uses

When you provide your web form, and in some cases when you supply personally identifiable information directly to us from certain parts of the site, we may provide you with the opportunity to opt-in to certain uses, e.g. to provide you with information about the site or other services that you may find of interest.

We will not share your personally identifiable information with anyone else for marketing purposes unless you have specifically consented to that.

You can opt-out of these uses again at any time – see Your rights below.

4. Our Commitment to Security

We employ appropriate technical and organizational security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information that we collect online.

5. Your Rights

You have the option at any time to request that we:

  • provide a copy of the personal information we hold relating to you (and we may make a small charge for this);
  • update or remove any such personal information; and
  • stop contacting you where we do this in accordance with your previous consent.
