Spirit of site
We are committed to safeguarding your privacy online. The following statement sets our policy in relation to privacy. This policy may change from time to time so please reread this policy periodically.
Use of your information
We may disclose your Private Information in special cases where we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our terms and conditions or who may be causing injury or interference with our rights, property, our customers or anyone who could be harmed by such activities. We may also disclose this information when we believe, in good faith, that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes necessary to maintain services and improve our products and services.
We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Please note, however, that no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure. As a result, while we attempt to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us and you transmit such information to us at your own risk.
We may send you e-mail if you provide your e-mail address via any of the services provided by us. If you elect to receive e-mail from us or other users of the platforms we provide, then you are 'opting in' as defined under anti-spam legislation and we are entitled to send you e-mails, including information about our company and promotional material from some of our affiliated partners. Our policy is to immediately cease e-mailing you upon your request. Any newsletters and announcements we e-mail you will contain clear and obvious instructions for how you can remove yourself from that e-mailing list.
We use e-mail as a means of receiving feedback, and we encourage you to e-mail us with your questions or comments.
We may send you Push Notifications if you use our mobile app. You can control your notification settings within your own mobile device and can elect to turn off Push Notifications at any time.
Control of Your Password
We may provide you with ways in which you can alter your personal data through our platform and mobile app, including changing your e-mail address, password, etc. You are responsible for all actions taken with your user name, e-mail address and password. We recommend that you do not disclose your login details to anyone. If you choose to share your user name, e-mail address and password or your information with third parties, you are responsible for all actions taken by that third party.
We mainly use "session" cookies, which are removed from your computer once you leave our site. These are used so our service can remember that you have logged in already and prevent you doing so more frequently. Session cookies expire and are deleted after periods of no activity on our platform.
We may also use persistent cookies to personalise the user experience, to help protect our members and to provide us with research information (such as how often people use our platforms each month). Persistent cookies allow us to track users of our platform and may help us identify users that abuse our service.
Other information we collect
We use additional information to do internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behaviour to better understand and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, and your IP address.
Users who login may have their IP addresses recorded. This information can be used to track users who abuse the system and will only be provided to legal authorities in cases of suspected fraud. IP addresses can be used, in conjunction with an Internet Service Provider, to find the internet account of a user and, ultimately, further information to identify a user. This information is stored securely and will not be provided to other members or non-authorised parties.
If you choose to post content, we may store such content on our servers. If you send us personal correspondence, such as e-mails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on our platforms, we may collect such information in a file specific to you.
Advertising and Third Party Links
We may display advertising. These advertisers may request information directly from you, or link to sites that request such information. We have no control over other advertisers' privacy policies, or the privacy policies of any other sites linked to, so we encourage you to review such third party privacy policies prior to submitting your personal information to them.
Links from our platform to advertisers or third-party sites should not be considered an endorsement from us of these sites except where specifically stated by us.
Usage Statistics Tracking
We collect information such as the number of visitors per day and the number of pages requested per day. To do this, we typically use Google Analytics, which provides a small piece of code that counts these statistics.
If you have any questions about our privacy policies or any other matter, please contact us.
