Personal information collected in these cases may include your name, contact details, and email address, which would be useful or necessary to provide customer support, allow you to use our website and send you communications such as newsletters.

It is always your choice whether to provide personal information to us and by doing so, you acknowledge and agree that you are giving us your consent to use that information to respond to your requests, to contact you and to provide information about our services.

Third Party Sources

If you have liked us on Facebook or interact with us through other social media sites, we may have access to some personal information about you (e.g. your name and the posts you have liked) that is made available on those third party sites. We will only use that data in an aggregated fashion to review and improve the Website and our services.

Automatic Collection of Information

We automatically collect certain statistical and other data about visitors use or visits to the Website. This information includes IP addresses, statistics on pages viewed, web browsers and operating systems. This information is not personal information and is used by us to improve the Website and our services.

Cookies

Like many websites, we use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We use “persistent cookies” to save your username and login password for future logins to the Site. We use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of our service, to better understand how you interact with the Site and to monitor web traffic routing on the Site and aggregate usage of the Site. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or all functionality of the services.

Advertisements

The Site contains links to other websites. If you choose to visit an advertiser by “clicking on” a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation that we are affiliated with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

Protecting Your Security

We take technical, contractual and administrative steps designed to protect your Personal Information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. You are also responsible for helping to protect the security of your Personal Information. For instance, never give out your password, remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished using the Website.

Retention

We will keep your Personal Information for as long as it remains necessary for the identified purpose or as required by law, which may extend beyond the termination of our relationship with you. We may retain certain data as necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or for legitimate business purposes, such as analysis of aggregated, non-personally-identifiable data, account recovery, or if required by law. All retained personal information will remain subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you request that your name be removed from our databases, it may not be possible to completely delete all your Personal Information due to technological and legal constraints.

Amendment of this Policy

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. We will notify you of any material changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on the Site. You should consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all Personal Information that we have about you. The date on which the latest update was made is indicated at the bottom of this document. Your continued use of the Website signifies your acceptance of any changes.
