Your privacy is very important to us. We want to make your experience on the Internet as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, and we want you to use the Internet’s vast array of information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.
This policy explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
By using this site you agree to our policy. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at other points on our site.
Collection of Personal Information
The personal information we collect includes your name and e-mail address. Other personal information that you submit is clearly labelled at the time you submit it and may include other contact information, preferences and interests.
We use the information that we collect to understand your needs, provide our services, fulfil any purchase you may have made, for internal records, to send you our newsletter, contact you regarding eg new promotions and events and to improve our site.
When submitting any information on our website you expressly authorize us to use your personal information as explained in this policy, and you consent to receiving commercial email from us and any of our other businesses. You can expect to receive newsletters, promotions, and other similar offers. Should you wish to discontinue receiving these e-mailings please simply unsubscribe using the link in the email you receive.
If you pay for anything on our site using a credit or debit card, we collect the personal information needed to complete the transaction. This information includes your name, card number, and other necessary information, all of which is clearly labelled on the form you use to submit payment. We use a third party credit card processing company to process your payment. We transfer your payment information and you authorize us to do so to this company solely for this purpose. The credit card company does not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes and we do not store credit card details ourselves.
We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.
Anything you send us, post on our site, or use with our services, such as blog postings or videos, or if others send us anything about your activities or postings, we may collect into a file specific to you. We use this information to resolve disputes and to troubleshoot problems.
We will not sell or rent your information.
We may share your information with our employees, contractors, agents and professional advisors. We do also occasionally enter into joint projects with other organisations, so that we can offer a fuller service to you. At these times it may be necessary to allow third party agents and joint venture parties access to your information to provide these services. This access is strictly limited to these specific companies and for specific purposes and activities related to marketing and promoting events such as workshops and training which we believe may be of interest to you.
We take measures to prevent the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information by carefully limiting access to the database in which your personal information is stored.
However, it is still possible for your private communications and other personal information to be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this policy. For example, although we use firewalls to protect your details, we cannot completely guarantee the security of your information as this is simply not possible when data is transferred on the internet.
We may also disclose information to the government or its agencies under certain circumstances. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we believe necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of wrongful conduct. We may also (and you authorise us to) disclose personal information about you to credit agencies, collection agencies and/or merchant database agencies, as we think appropriate.
