Thank you for using our site! This policy is designed to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it and what choices are available regarding your information. Some of the explanations below may be a little technical, but we’ve tried to explain things in a simple and clear way. Please contact us if you have any questions or comments regarding this policy.
What information do we collect?
The information we collect is obtained two ways:
1 – When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it
When you sign up at our site, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, photo, location, email address, your social networking identity and any other information you provide.
Some of this information is required to use our site but the rest is optional. You may also give us permission to access your information in other services, such as Twitter or Facebook. This allows us to obtain information from these accounts which can simplify the sign up process. In these cases, we redirect you back to the third-party website to allow you to grant us permission to access this information.
2 – When technical information about you is logged by using our site
When browsing the internet, there is a certain amount of information that is recorded automatically. This applies to our site as well, and these are some examples of the type of information we collect:
When you use our site, our servers automatically record information about your interaction with our services, including the information that your web browser sends when you use it to access a website. This information may include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, the webpage that linked you to our site, your browser type, settings and the operating system you are using.
How do we use this information?
We use the information we collect to improve and enhance the services and products we provide to you. We may use this information to offer you customized content, for example if you’ve indicated you are interested in a certain category, we may show more similar results to you.
We also use the information we collect to send you updates, newsletters and any other information that may be of interest to you, as well as respond to your questions and comments.
The information we collect may be personally identifiable, meaning that it can be used to identify you as a unique person.
What choices do you have about your information?
We aim to give you control of the information you provide to us. If you have an account, many of the choices you have will be built into your profile settings. For example, you can:
- Access and change the information in your profile page at any time.
- Link and un-link your account from an account on another service (eg Facebook and Twitter).
- Close your account at any time. When you close your account, all content will be removed from the website. We may keep archived copies of your information as required by law.
