Your privacy is very important to me. I want to make your experience on this site as enjoyable and rewarding as possible.
I have created this Privacy Statement to demonstrate my firm commitment to privacy and security.
We fully respect your right to privacy, and will not collect any personal information about you on this website without your clear permission. Any personal information which you volunteer to us will be treated with the highest standard of security and confidentially, in accordance with the Data Protection Acts, 1988 & 2003.
While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third party ‘hackers’ from illegally obtaining this information.
Collection Of Personal Information
We do not collect any personal data about you on this website, apart from information which you volunteer such as:
- By e-mailing us
- By registering for our newsletter or access to our programmes
- By choosing to participate in the use of some features of this site, e.g. questionnaires and surveys where we may require that you provide us with certain specific information, such your name, email address, company name, position etc.
This information is not necessary if you do not wish to use these features of the site and if you don’t provide such personal information you can still use this website with no loss of functionality.
We collect information in different ways from Visitors and Members who access the various parts of our Service and the network of Web Sites accessible through our Service. We use this information primarily to provide a customised experience as you use our Products and Services, and generally, do not share this information with third parties. However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below.
Members may be asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for our Products or Services including name, address, telephone number, billing information (such as credit card number), and the type of personal computer being used to access the Services. The personal information collected from Members during the registration process is used to manage each Member’s account (such as for billing purposes). This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances.
However, in instances where our company and a partner jointly promote our Services, we may provide the partner certain personal information, such as the name, address, and username of persons who subscribed to the Services as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the partner to assess the results of the promotion.
In this instance, personal information may not be used by the partner for any other purpose. We may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from personal information Members provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Members).
Some products and services may be offered to Visitors and Members in conjunction with a partner. To provide Visitors and Members some of these products and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain personal information. In these instances, you will be notified before any such data is collected or transferred and may decide not to use that particular service or feature.
Where you decide to purchase Products or Services on line you may be asked to provide contact information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information.
If you complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift order sent directly to a recipient, you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient’s name, address, and phone number. Our company has no control over third parties’ use of any personal information you provide when placing such an order. Please exercise care when doing so.
If you order services or products directly from our company we will use the personal information you provide only to process that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
Voluntary Customer Surveys
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of products and services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party. Participation in our surveys is voluntary.
We may take the information we receive from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys and combine (aggregate) it with the responses of other customers we may have, to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of services to you, and to develop new services and products.
Please remember that any information you may disclose in any Member Directory, or other public areas of our Web sites or Internet, becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these public areas.
Responses To Email Inquiries
When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to our company, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. We do not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.
