We will not sell your information to anyone. Our most important asset is our relationship with you. We understand that you have entrusted us with your private information, and we will do everything we can to maintain that trust.

Our goal is to deliver content targeted to the products you use and your specific preferences. In order to provide you with relevant information, fulfill your specific requests, and enhance your experience across our web sites, we will at times request personal information from you. The information collected and how it is used will vary across each different web site.

While our main data centre is in the UK, we will transfer information provided by customers to the appropriate company office, distributor, or consultant to provide the necessary product, service and support or information requested by the customer.

We are a World Wide Web based company, this Privacy Statement is published in the United Kingdom (UK) for UK citizens and permanent residents and relates to Homepage Worldwide™ Limited and its operating divisions and trading names, issued products and services.

We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (‘personal information’) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are asked to register before entering a contest, ordering e-mail newsletters, joining a limited-access premium site, or when purchasing and requesting our products and services. Personal information collected by our operating divisions often is limited to e-mail address, address, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide the service you requested.

We will only use the personal information to phone, write or e-mail you (as requested) and to deal with any matters arising as a result of our products and services.

In addition to these exceptions, we may want to share your data with third parties for marketing purposes. You can tell us that you do not want us to do this (that is "opt out"). Where necessary this can be managed on the web sites or you should write to us at the address on the web site if you have not already done so.

What about data security?

We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on our web sites. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended.

That's it in a nutshell. The short of it is—we are interested in maintaining your privacy and creating a valuable resource for you to use. If you have any questions now or during your visit, please contact us via our webmaster at webmaster@homepageworldwide.com

By using our web sites, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Detailed Information About Privacy and Security
We collect personal information in the normal course of business in order to administer your accounts and serve you better.

Web site usage: We collect some information on our Web sites through the use of "cookies." For example, we may identify the pages on our Web sites that your browser requests or visits. This information is only personally identifiable if you have chosen to identify yourself; for example, by opening an account.

Transaction information: Once you have an account with us, to administer your account and serve you better, we collect and maintain personal information about your transactions.

We protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information
Companies we hire to provide support services are not allowed to use your personal information for their own purposes and are contractually obligated to maintain strict confidentiality. We limit their use of your personal information to the performance of the specific service we have requested.

We restrict access to personal information to our employees and agents for business purposes only. All employees must know about privacy and are required to safeguard such information.

We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information.

Browsers and Internet Security
Any time you enter an order or provide personal information in our web sites (such as an account number or password), we encrypt it using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL protects information as it crosses the Internet. To support this technology, you need an SSL-capable browser.

We recommends using a strong encryption, 128-bit browser like Netscape Navigator 4.06 or higher or Microsoft's Internet Explorer 4.01 or higher. These browsers will activate SSL automatically whenever you sign on to your web site account. You can tell if you are visiting a secure area within a Web site by looking at the symbol on the bottom of your browser screen. If you are using Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer, you will see either a lock or a key. When the symbol appears unbroken or the padlock is in the locked position, your session connection is taking place via a secure server. If you need a strong encryption browser, you can go to the Netscape Web site or the Microsoft Web site to download the latest Navigator or Internet Explorer browser. We do not recommend the use of beta browser versions.

Your Password and Other Security Issues
Your account password is your private entry key. You should never share it with anyone and you should change it periodically. You can change your password any time you like after logging in to your account.

Logging Off
After you've finished accessing your account, don't forget to log off. This prevents someone else from accessing your account if you leave your computer on and your session hasn't "timed out," or automatically shut down.

Security Risk of Using Non-Approved Automated Software Applications
For security reasons and to guard the safety of your data, access to this site is limited to SSL-capable browsers like Netscape Navigator 4.06 or higher or Microsoft's Internet Explorer 4.01 or higher. Under no circumstances should you use any software, program, application, or any other device to access or log-in to our Web sites, or to automate the process of obtaining, downloading, transferring, or transmitting any content to or from our computer systems, Web sites, or proprietary software.

Cookies, GIFs and Other Web Tools
When you interact with an online channel, such as one of our Web Sites or through email or a wireless device, we strive to make that experience easy and meaningful. To do so, we use several tools. When you come to our Web site, our Web server sends a cookie to your computer. A cookie is simply an electronically transmitted file that holds small pieces of information. When you navigate through our Web site, your browser "requests" pages for you to view, and that request will include the information stored in the cookie we previously sent to your computer. This process is like an electronic "handshake" between our system and your computer; the information exchanged allows us to recognise your browser.

We also use other technology, such as "Graphics Interchange Format" files (GIFs) to recognise users and collect and transmit information online, as described below.

Cookies and Personal Identification
Standing alone, cookies, GIFs and other Web tools, as well as data derived from them do not identify you personally. They merely recognise your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to us, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or registering for an online service, you remain anonymous.

Persistent Cookies
Cookies come in two flavours: persistent and session-based. Only persistent cookies remain on your computer after you've closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser that only we can read and use, and the fact that you are a customer or prior Web site visitor (whatever the case may be). We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information we send through persistent cookies. For example, we do not store account numbers or passwords in persistent cookies.

Session Cookies
Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Session cookies allow you to conduct transactions or request your own personal or account information on our Web site. They contain encrypted or encoded information about your account(s), and/or identifying information that you have previously provided to us. This information allows us to process your online transactions and requests.

Without the session cookie information, we would not be able to complete your Web transactions securely. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are after you've logged in.

Other Web Tools
Sometimes we include links to Web pages in an email or in banner advertisements, which include a code that allows us to know if you clicked on that link. We do this so that we can personalise your experience, such as recognising you when you reach the Web page you clicked to, or by displaying information and content we believe will be relevant to you. We also do this to measure the effectiveness and usefulness of our advertisements and the messages we send, and we use this information to continually improve the way we communicate.

Other Ways We may Use Information Obtained From Cookies and GIFs
Cookies enable us to understand better how you and others use our Web sites. They allow us to collect information about where your browser goes on our Web sites. This assists us in understanding your preferences and improving our Web site. For example, the information we obtain from cookies or GIFs helps us understand whether our customers use certain Web features and how to improve navigation. We also may use information gathered as the result of GIFs or cookies to target emails or Web messages to groups of customers based on the parts of our Web site they visit the most. Knowing where your browser has been on our Web site helps us present useful information and offers to you.

If at any time you are concerned about security of your personal information please contact us at the address and e-mail links provided on the web site, and we hope you will benefit from the web sites and facilities we provide for you.
