We will maintain the confidentiality of any contact information you provide to us on registering with the Website and/or accessing Content. We will use such information for the purposes for which we have collected it (subject to the exclusions and disclosures we have listed below), unless you agree that we may disclose it to other third parties. We do not sell customer lists.

This information will be kept confidential, however, aggregate statistics that do not personally identify an individual will be kept by us and such aggregate statistics may be made available to other members or third parties.

  • IP Addresses: Your IP address is reported by your web browser whenever you visit a page on the Website. This information is recorded together with your registration information on our databases. We use this to:

    • Diagnose problems and any issues reported by other users that are related to the IP addresses controlled by specific parties

If we plan to use your Personal Information in future for any other purposes not identified above, we will only do so after informing you by updating this Privacy Policy (see further 'Amendment of this Policy' below).

Disclosures & Transfers

We have put in place contractual and other organizational safeguards to ensure a proper level of protection of your Personal Information (see further Security below). As at the date of this Privacy Policy, we share Personal Information about you in respect of the Website only with select business partners for providing our Content to you. We may also engage third parties to help us improve the Website and/or the Content. These third parties may have limited access to databases of user or registered member information solely for helping us to improve the Website and/or the Content and they will be subject to contractual restrictions prohibiting them from using the information about our members for any other purpose.

Our servers are in North America and accordingly your Personal Information may be available to the US government or its agencies under a lawful order, irrespective of the safeguards we have put in place for the protection of your Personal Information.

Important Exceptions

We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your consent if we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other users of the Content, or anyone else (including the rights or property of anyone else) that could be harmed by such activities.

We have implemented procedures designed to limit the dissemination of your Personal Information to only such designated staff as are reasonably necessary to carry out the stated purposes we have communicated to you. You are also responsible for helping to protect the security of your Personal Information. For instance, never give out your password, and remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished using the Website, so that other people using the same computer will not have access to your Personal Information.

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.
