We are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy.
We explain below the way in which we collect and use your information and personal data. By using the Site, you consent to the use (including transfer) of such information as described below.
What information do we collect, and how do we collect it?
When you visit the Site, our web servers automatically collect certain data that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website, such as your IP (Internet Protocol) address and information relating to which pages have been viewed (for example, using cookies as described further below).
When you use the Site, we also collect information voluntarily submitted by you (for example, via the sign-up forms) such as your email address and any other contact details submitted by you and any optional services selected by you (for example, whether you have chosen to receive emails about certain topics of interest to you). If you contact us, we may also keep a record of that correspondence.
Information provided to us by children
We are strongly committed to protecting the online privacy of children. In particular, we will not send email communications directly promoting merchandise to any person under 16. We encourage parents and guardians to monitor their children’s use of the internet. Where a child is providing us with information, it is the responsibility of each parent or guardian to supervise them.
How do we use your information?
The ways in which we use your information will vary depending on the kind of information you provide and the purpose for which you have provided it. This section sets out the different ways we may use your information.
If you indicate an interest in submitting an event to WSNet / HerMoJo, we may use your information to contact you in relation to that event. If your interest is in participating, we may make your contact information available to the Host of the event so that it can send you further information about the Host, the event, future events and other opportunities that might arise to join or support the Host.
We may use anonymous information, like your IP address and location, to compile statistics, to assess the usage of the Site and to customise the Site’s content, layout and services. This will allow us to improve the Site and the services provided through it.
We may integrate your personal data from our various databases to form a single view to allow us to have an effective and efficient communication with you.
We may provide your information to any third party that administers any facility, service or promotion operated via the Site on our behalf to enable such third party to administer that facility, service or promotion properly.
We may contact you to ask if you would like to complete a survey or answer some market research questions including in relation to (i) the services and/or products available on the Site and (ii) the way in which you use the Site.
We may transfer your information in the event of a transfer of ownership of the Site or of WSNet / HerMoJo.
Apart from the purposes described above, we shall only use the information that you provide to us for the purposes described at the point of collection or to manage risks and incidents relating to WSNet / HerMoJo and for purposes that are otherwise legally permitted.
When you subscribe to e-newsletters through the Site, you agree that we may use your information for the following purposes:
We will use it to send you online and/or email communications or text communications.
We may use it to operate the features of the Site and to allow you, when you choose to do so, to participate in features available only to registered users or interactive features of the Site.
We may use the information that you provide to maintain appropriate databases and otherwise to operate and facilitate such programmes, networks and communications.
Unless you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted for such purposes, for the provision by us of relevant information about events, products and/or services, offered by WSNet / HerMoJo or other carefully-selected organisations, in which we think you may be interested.
Where you have consented to us doing so, we will pass your information on to other carefully-selected organisations so that they can provide you with relevant information about events, products and/or services in which they think you might be interested. If you are a Host, or accessing the Site on behalf of a Host, you give this consent by giving us your contact details unless and until you tell us that you do not wish to receive information of this kind
Data protection compliance
We shall collect, store and use ('process') your personal data in a manner that is compatible with the Data Protection Act 1998 (the 'Act').
We shall endeavour to keep your personal data accurate and up-to-date.
The Act gives you the right to access information held about you, and to correct inaccurate information, which can be exercised in accordance with the Act. You can (if you pay a small fee to cover administrative expenses) request a copy of information about you held by us at any time by sending us a written and signed request to the WSNet / HerMoJo Data Protection Officer.
When we are required to disclose information
We may disclose your information if we reasonably believe that we are required to do so by law, regulation, court order or any competent governmental, statutory or public authority or to protect our rights and property.
We may also cooperate with a law enforcement agency in any official investigation, and we may disclose your information to that agency in doing so.
Cookies are used for a variety of purposes, including providing personalised web pages and recognising your choice of language. Cookies do not cause harm to your computer, but, if you wish to stop your computer accepting cookies, go to the help section of your internet browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Firefox) where you will find information on how to do this.
Whenever you voluntarily post information about you in public areas of the Site, you should be aware that such information can be accessed by the public and may in turn be used by others to send you unsolicited communications.
Please exercise discretion in deciding what information you provide.
Security and retention of your information
Once we have received your information, we shall endeavour to protect it by using physical, managerial and technical procedures and security features to prevent unauthorised access to it.
We cannot, however, guarantee the security of any information provided to us in an email or in online form while it is being transmitted to us, as the internet is a potentially non-secure method of information transfer. Any such transmission is at your own risk.
Subject to our obligations under the Act, we do not accept any responsibility for any loss, disruption or damage to your data or your computer system which may occur while using interactive features of the Site.
As best practice, we also strongly recommend that you regularly run an anti-virus programme on all material downloaded from the internet.
