The privacy of our visitors is important to us.
1) Information Collected
We collect two types of information from you: i) information that you voluntarily provide to us (e.g. through a voluntary registration process, sign-ups or emails); and ii) information that is derived through automated tracking mechanisms.
Voluntary Registration Information
In order to fully access this Site, you must first complete the registration process, during which we will collect personal information about you. The information may include your name, address, phone number, and email address. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you except when you specifically provide such information to us on a voluntary basis.
Voluntary Information for Services and Features
We also collect personally identifiable information when you choose to use certain other features of the Site, including: i) consenting to receive email, text messages, mailing, or phone calls about upcoming promotions or events; ii) consenting to receive email; iii) participating in reviews and discussions; iv) submitting questions via email, text, phone, or any other communication medium. When you choose to use these additional features, we may require you to provide your “Contact Information” in addition to other personal information, such as your phone number, that may be required to complete a transaction. Occasionally, we may also request information such as your shopping preferences and demographics which will help us better serve you and our others users in the future.
Some of the information stored is put there by other companies whose software we have added to the Site, and this can also impact your experience of other websites you may visit after leaving ours. If you continue to use this Site without taking action to prevent the storage of this information, you are effectively agreeing to this use.
If you want to learn more about the general uses of cookies, including how to stop them being stored by your computer, please visit Cookiepedia – all about cookies
Below is a list of the different types of cookies used on this Site, and an explanation of what they are used for.
If you would like any more information, please get in touch.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the Site to function. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as logging in or filling in forms.
You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the Site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
By using this Site, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes described above.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to the pages of the Site.
If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies may be set through the Site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other websites.
They do not store any personally identifiable information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
DoubleClick DART cookies
We may also use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you visit a website using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”).
The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (for example, if you have been viewing websites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related website, such as on a website about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information.” It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers, or credit card numbers.
You can opt-out of this ad serving on all websites using this type of advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx and learn more by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative website.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing web browser preferences or configuring other third party tools to do the same. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with the site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a website running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
You may choose to invite friends to join the Operator by sending invitation emails via our invite feature. The Operator stores the email addresses you provide so that the respondents may be added to your social network, and also to send reminders of the invitations. The Operator does not sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides invitations and invitation reminders. Recipients of invitations may contact the Operator to request removal of their information from our database.
3) How We Use Your Information
The Operator only uses your personal information for the original purposes it was given. Your personal information will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without your approval at the time of collection.
The Operator may rent, give, or sell any personal information to third parties solely at our discretion. We may also share your information as required to do so by law. Further, the Operator reserves the right to contact you regarding matters relevant to the underlying service provided and/or the information collected.
Please note that personally identifiable information is used only to provide you with a more enjoyable, convenient online experience and to help us identify and/or provide information, products or services that may be of interest to you. We use your personally identifiable information to support and enhance your use of the Site and its features, including without limitation: providing customer service, tracking email invitations you send, and otherwise supporting your use of the Site.
The Operator may use your personal information for target advertising based on things such as your region, gender, interests, goals, habits, etc.
We may permit certain trusted third parties to track usage, analyze data such as the source address that a page request is coming from, your IP address or domain name, the date and time of the page request, the referring website (if any) and other parameters in the URL. This is collected in order to better understand the Site usage, and enhance the performance of services to maintain and operate the Site and certain features on the Site. We may use third parties to host the Site, operate various features available on the Site, send emails, analyze data, provide search results and links, and assist in fulfilling your orders.
Also, we may share personally identifiable or other information with our parent, subsidiaries, divisions, partners, and affiliates.
We may transfer personally identifiable information as an asset in connection with a proposed or actual merger or sale (including any transfers made as part of an insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding) involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization, stock sale or other change in control.
The Operator may disclose your personal 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 of use or may be causing injury or interference with our rights, property, our customers, or anyone who could be harmed by such activities.
WE ARE NOT LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE OR OTHER INFORMATION YOU CHOOSE TO SUBMIT IN REVIEWS, DISCUSSIONS, OR ANY OTHER PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE AREA OF THE SITE.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design the Site and for business and administrative purposes. We may also use or share with third parties, for any purpose, aggregated data that contains no personally identifiable information.
4) How We Protect Your Information
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. We take appropriate security measures to protect your information against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information and data stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.
We may sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting.
If you believe that any information we have on you is incorrect or incomplete, please contact us as soon as possible, at the above address. We will promptly correct any information found to be erroneous.
5) Third Party Advertising
Advertisements appearing on this Site may be delivered to you by the Operator or one of our advertising partners. Our advertising partners may set cookies. Doing this allows the advertising partners to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement. In this way, they may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. This information allows an advertising partner to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. The Operator does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertising servers of ad partners.
6) Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information and Preferences
We may provide mechanisms for updating and correcting your personal information for many of our services. You may modify or remove any of your personal information by electronically notifying us of any changes.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active, or as needed in order to provide you services. Please contact us if you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
7) Email Choice/Opt-out
If you no longer wish to receive updates or notifications via our newsletter or other promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving these communications by selecting the appropriate action link at the bottom of each email newsletter.
If no such link is accessible to you and you would prefer not to receive such communications in the future, you may electronically notify us of any changes in your opt-in and/or opt-out preferences.
We will make commercially reasonable efforts to implement your opt-out requests promptly, but you may still receive communications from us for up to ten (10) business days as we process your request.
You may be notified if your personal information is collected by any third party that is not our agent/service provider other than as specified in this policy, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party. Although there are no plans to do this presently, if this ever occurs, an opt-out will be provided to you before any personal information is shared, so it is always your choice when information is provided to a third party.
8) Children’s Privacy and Parental Controls
We do not solicit any personal information from children. If you are not 18 or older, you are not authorized to use the Site. Parents should be aware that there are parental control tools available online that can be used to prevent children from submitting information online without parental permission or from accessing material that is harmful to minors.
9) Links to other websites
The Site may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave the Site, you should note that we do not have any control over such external websites. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such websites, and such websites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
10) Disclaimer to Security
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
We may follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
