Privacy Policy

USE OF INFORMATION:

Information Collection

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name and e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data.

Personal Information We Collect

When you interact with us, we collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide. For example, when you sign up for our e-mail lists or otherwise use certain aspects of our Services, we may ask you to provide information such as your name and e-mail address. In addition to collecting information on our Site, we may collect information from you when you communicate with us via e-mail. You can choose not to provide any information that is requested of you by us. However, this may limit your ability to use the Services.

Non-Personal Information

We and/or our third-party service providers may also collect information in a form that does not personally identify you (“Non-Personal Information”). Non-Personal Information can include certain Personal Information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous e.g. which hall of residence you attended. We and/or our third-party service providers obtain Non-Personal Information about you from information that you provide us, either separately or together with your Personal Information. We also use cookies and other technologies to passively collect Non-Personal Information as described below.

In this Privacy Policy, we refer to all information collected from or about you, including Personal Information and Non-Personal Information, as “Your Information.”

Non-Personal Information Automatically Collected

We and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies, now and hereafter devised, that automatically record certain usage information. When accessing our Site, third parties may log your IP address, access URL, time of access, geographic location, browser type, and referral URL in order to provide us with internal information regarding Site traffic statistics. This information may also be used to identify users who are using our Site for spam or other activity that is deemed in conflict with our Terms of Service. Otherwise, this information is used in the aggregate, and is never linked back to any Personal Information.

Cookies and Other Technologies We Use

Our other service providers may use cookies (both session cookies and persistent cookies) to analyse trends, administer our Site, track your movements around our Site, better understand how you interact with our Site, determine interest in particular content and monitor aggregate usage by visitors and online traffic routing. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual and aggregated basis. You may be able to instruct your browser, by changing its option, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the online services you visit. You may also remove persistent cookies by following your web browser’s help file directions. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of our Site or all functionality of our Site.

Our other service providers may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” or similar means in connection with our Site and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to, among other things, track the actions of users, to determine the success of marketing campaigns and to compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. This information is collected anonymously, in a manner that does not personally identify you.

Our Use of Your Information

We mainly use Your Information, either alone or in combination with other information, so that we can provide, enhance and personalize our Services and related content.

Your Information is used and disclosed for, but is not limited to, the following purposes:

To provide you with the best user experience possible;

To respond to your questions and comments;

To communicate with you regarding updates to our Services;

To send you emails or other subscriptions;

To help us develop, customize, deliver, support and improve our Services and content;

To protect the rights or property of The FlatPack Company or our users, and endeavour prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities;

For distribution to third-party service providers that provide services to us;

To protect the security of our Services and business;

To conduct system administration and system troubleshooting and to diagnose or fix technology problems;

For marketing and advertising purposes;

For our internal purposes (such as auditing and data analysis);

Otherwise, as disclosed to you at the point of collection; and

To monitor and analyse use of the Services and for the technical administration of the Services.

We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Personal Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users or sources to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality of our Services, and to analyse and understand how our Services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically. After you terminate your use of the Services, we may continue to use your Non-Personal Information for statistical purposes or other purposes as we see fit. Please note that we cannot guarantee that Non-Personal Information will not identify you as we cannot guarantee that others with access to Non-Personal Information may not have knowledge sufficient to identify you.
