We take protecting your privacy seriously and ask that you please read this Privacy Policy statement (the “Policy”) to learn more about our approach to Privacy. This Policy describes the information we collect from you and what may happen to that information, and only applies to such information.

If you use this website, you will be regarded as having read and accepted this Privacy Policy. If you do not wish to be bound by these terms then you should not use our website.

1. Information Collection

1.1. We collect the following information about you and your use of our Website, Platform and service (together, our “Platform”) in order to create a better, more personalized experience for you:
1.1.1. a username selected by you or assigned by us, your email address, your name (if provided) a password selected by you, and your address if supplied; and
1.1.2. for purposes of this Policy, “Personally Identifiable Information” means information that could be used to identify your personally (such as your email address or IP address), which has not been previously or subsequently disclosed by you on the public areas of our website.
1.2. We automatically track certain basic information about our members (such as internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, click patterns, etc.). We use this information to do internal research on our members’ usage patterns, demographics, interests and general behaviour to better understand and serve you and our community.
1.3. We currently contract with online partners to help manage and optimize our business and communications. We use the services of a site analytics partner to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our site. To do this, we use web beacons and cookies provided by our site analytics partner on this site. A “cookie” is a piece of data stored on your computer that is tied to information about you. The type of information collected includes the URL you came from and go to, your browser information, and IP address, and helps us learn how to improve our service. No information shared with our site analytics partner is directly linked to your Personally Identifiable Information. If you wish to opt-out of these website analysis tools, you may do so here.
1.4. For our members’ convenience, we also use “cookies” to allow you to enter your password less frequently during a session and to provide for an easier registration process. If you configure your browser or otherwise choose to reject the cookies, you may still use our site. However, to best experience our website and Platform and most easily use our Platform you must have cookies enabled. Our use of cookies is consistent with the rights and restrictions set forth in Section 2.

2. Use of Information

2.1. We use the information we collect about you (including your Personally Identifiable Information) to create a better, more personalised experience for you based on your individual usage habits, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, analyse site usage, improve our content and product offerings, and customise our site’s content, layout and Services. These uses improve our site and allow us to better customize it to meet your needs. We also use the information we collect about you to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, and enforce our Terms of Service Agreement.
2.2. We may compile the information we collect about you and use it, in an aggregate form only, in the negotiation and establishment of service agreements with public and/or private enterprises.
2.3. We may use for promotional, sales or any use that we consider appropriate your correspondence with us or photographs submitted for publication on our website, be it via email, postings on our website, or feedback via the member polls. Our use of such materials is consistent with the restrictions on disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information set forth in Section 3.

3. Disclosure of Your Information

3.1. Opt-in requirement. Without your affirmative consent (on a case-by-case basis), we do not sell, rent or otherwise share your personally identifiable information with other third parties, unless otherwise required as described below under “required disclosures”.
