1. Definitions and General Statement
The Gower Society (hereafter referred to as “we”, “us”, “our”) recognise the importance of protecting the privacy of Personal Information collected about our Users (hereafter referred to as “you”, “your”). We do not sell or otherwise disclose any individually identifiable Personal Information about you without your express and informed consent, unless required by law.
We collect statistical non-personally identifiable information from you in the form of usage data (for example, length of session, pages viewed, geographical location, etc.) for use as stated in the paragraph on “Usage” below.
We believe in protecting your privacy. To that end, we use “opt-in” collection methods wherever feasible, where you specifically choose to send us your information for specific, stated purposes. If you ever feel you have received an email from us in error, or wish to unsubscribe from an e-mail service you’ve signed up for, please contact us.
We use statistical, non-identifiable user information in the aggregate (such as geographical location, pages viewed, browser type, etc.) for improving the usability of our website.
We use Personal Information such as your e-mail address to provide you with specifically requested “opt-in” services, such as e-mail news about our Site. We reserve the right to, on rare occasions but when necessary, send important e-mail announcements about The Gower Society to all Users, such as but not limited to, changes in services, changes of terms, or major site upgrades.
We only collect Personal Information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve our legitimate business purposes, and we use state-of-the-art security technology to ensure the security, integrity, safety, encryption, and privacy of any sensitive Personal Information.
While we make all reasonable attempts to secure your Personal Information, we will not be held responsible for any involuntary breach of our security, and any actions by third parties resulting there from, such as but not limited to computer or internet hacking, equipment malfunction, acts of God, war, civil unrest, and any other causes beyond our reasonable control.
