This Privacy Statement contains the following important information regarding your use of the Infoplum web site ("the Site"):
When you provide Infoplum with your personal information via the Site, Infoplum will inform you of how the information will be used. Infoplum values your trust and as such, in all cases, your personal information will be held in strict confidence.
The types of personal information that we collect from you will depend on how you use the Site. For example, when applying for Sports Flash Planner registration Infoplum will collect details such as your name, e-mail address, age, gender, and some details of your personal interests and your preferences for receiving commercial e-mail. Some of this information is essential for Infoplum to be able to accurately identify who is using the service and as such is mandatory.
Other types of information are collected to help us profile who is using the services and what their interests are. Information of this type is often optional - you need only fill it in if you wish to do so. For example, you will have the option to provide details of your Internet usage.
Infoplum records other information as well. This information is used to improve the structure and performance of the Site to provide the user with an improved service. Whenever a page is requested from Infoplum's web server, Infoplum records the time, date and URL of the request, along with information on the browser software that is being used. Infoplum also anonymously tracks the pattern of visitor usage across the Site. Infoplum will do this by issuing an anonymous user ID. This anonymous ID uses a feature in your web browser called a Cookie. This cookie identifies and recognises the computer (but not the person using the computer) when you visit the Site.
Infoplum utilises Web Trends software to measure the Site's performance. Information collected is aggregated for reporting purposes. No personally identifiable information is collected by this service. The use of the Web Trends service assists Infoplum in measuring and improving the structure and ease of use of the Site. Infoplum will not collect any personal information from you revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or details of health, disability or sexual activity or orientation, except:
The personal information that you provide to Infoplum during registration for products and services on the Site is used for identification purposes and will assist you to subscribe to Infoplum's services more easily. The information gathered from your use of the Site enables Infoplum to provide better-personalised services that are tailored to your needs. Recording usage patterns helps us to identify the areas of our site that are popular and those that are not.
Infoplum aggregates the data that is gathered when you use the Site for analytical purposes. Personally identifiable characteristics are removed and the user remains anonymous, unless you have given prior specific consent for Infoplum to recognise your personalised usage. Additional data provided to Infoplum is used to examine Internet trends and demographics to help Infoplum offer you improved online products and services. Infoplum may use this personal information or data for a purpose other than these purposes (specified above) if:
Infoplum may also use your personal information for the purpose of direct marketing. Infoplum may only use your personal information or data for the purpose of direct marketing in relation to promotional activities where it is impracticable for us to obtain your prior express consent. However, when Infoplum does this, Infoplum will provide an express opportunity when we first contact you to decline receiving any further marketing communications from Infoplum, via an opt-out mechanism. Infoplum will only send emails to you if you have elected to receive such emails or if they are in response to an email we have received from you.
You may also notify us at any time that you do not want to receive any Sports Planner communications from Infoplum by editing your registration details.
If we wish to use any of this personal information, information or data for any purpose other than those specified above, we will not do so unless we have your express consent to do so, or where:
The information Infoplum collects from you is strictly confidential. Infoplum will not reveal, disclose, sell, distribute, rent, licence, share or pass that information on to any third parties, other than those who are contracted to Infoplum to keep the information confidential or are subject to a statute or binding scheme which imposes similar restrictions to Infoplum's principles regarding the handling of personal information.
Infoplum may disclose the personal information, other information or data collected from you for the purpose specified to you at the time of collection or for another purpose if:
If Infoplum wish to disclose any of this personal information, information or data other than as set out above, it will not do so without your express consent to do so. Infoplum will not provide your email address to third parties without your consent, except where:
Infoplum will take reasonable steps to ensure that all information collected, used or disclosed is accurate, complete, up-to-date and stored in a secure environment accessed only by authorised persons. Transmissions sent to or from Infoplum are routinely monitored for quality control and systems administration.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While Infoplum strives to protect your personal information from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, Infoplum cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to Infoplum or receive from Infoplum's online products or services. These activities are conducted at your own risk. Once Infoplum receives your transmission, Infoplum shall make its best reasonable effort to ensure its security.
You will always have access to the information and content that you provide to Infoplum. You can easily edit or delete your personal information provided during registration to the Site, unless it is mandatory information required for your membership application, except where:
You will need your username and password to access and modify your registration information.
If you wish to access or modify personal information which you have provided via the Site, but you cannot access the information at the site mentioned above, please send an e-mail using the feedback mechanisms on the Site.
If Infoplum does not allow you to access your personal information, Infoplum will provide you with the reasons for their decision. If you believe that the personal information collected, used or disclosed is inaccurate, incomplete or not up to date but Infoplum does not agree with you, Infoplum will post a statement of your claim where that information is kept and accessed.
The safety of children is very important to us.
We ask that children under the age of 18 have a parent or guardian verify their membership application with Infoplum. Whilst Infoplum.com will make every reasonable effort to ensure that children's privacy and other rights are not compromised, it is ultimately the responsibility of parents to monitor their children's Internet usage.
Remember to close your browser when you have finished your user session. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. You as an individual are responsible for the security of and access to your own computer.
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information over the Internet (for example: in discussion forums, via e-mail, or in chat sites) that this information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information in publicly accessible online forums, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your username and passwords and any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are using the Internet and Infoplum.
