Effective and Last Updated: 31 January 2014

 

This website is owned and operated by Women Only Connected Limited. We are committed to protecting the privacy of our visitors while they interact with the content, products and services on this site (the “Site” or the “Website”).  This Privacy Policy (together with our Terms of Website Use and any other document referred to on it) sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or you provide to us will be processed by us. It applies to the Site only. It does not apply to other websites to which we link.  Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we want you to understand what information we collect about you, how we collect it, how that information is used, and how you can control our disclosure of it. You agree that your use of the Site signifies your assent to and our practices regarding your personal data and how we treat it. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Site.

 

1) Information Collected

We collect two types of information from you: i) information that you voluntarily provide to us (e.g. through a voluntary registration process, sign-ups or emails); and ii) information that is derived through automated tracking mechanisms (including the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet and related technical information).

 

-  Voluntary Registration Information. 

In order to fully access this Site, you must first complete the registration process, during which we will collect personal information about you. The information will include your name, address, email address and date of birth. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you except when you specifically provide such information to us on a voluntary basis.  

By registering with us, you consent to the use and method of disclosure as described in this Privacy Policy.

 

-  Cookies

Our site uses "cookies" and other tracking technologies.  Cookies enable us to serve secure pages to our users without asking them to sign in repeatedly.  Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. If a user's system is idle for a defined time, the cookie will expire, forcing the user to sign in again to continue their session. This prevents unauthorised access to the user's information while they are away from their computer.

You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of the Site.

 

2) Referrals
