Overall Privacy Statement
Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. Because we gather certain types of information about the users of the MEBreaks.com network, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it.
1. Information MEBreaks.com Gathers and Tracks
MEBreaks.com gathers two types of information about users: data that users provide through optional, voluntary registration; and data MEBreaks.com gathers through tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views and journey plan posts throughout the MEBreaks.com Network. Such information enables us to better tailor our features and content to users' needs and to help our clients better understand the demographics of our members.
MEBreaks.com currently gathers user information in the following processes:
MEBreaks.com offers free, voluntary registration to users. By registering, users can enter journey plans, post new journey plans and reply to existing journey plans; they can take advantage of personalization (the ability to filter matches according to a user-supplied criteria); and they have the ability to edit existing journey plans.
During registration the user is required to supply their name, an email address, telephone number, age, gender, usual form of identity, smoker and postcode.
Occasionally, MEBreaks.com conducts user surveys to better understand the needs of our audience in order to improve our features. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our partners. We never share any information about specific individuals with any third party without user's express consent.
MEBreaks.com tracks user traffic patterns throughout MEBreaks.com and the MEBreaks.com Network. This information may be used to help personalize the MEBreaks.com service or target advertising. MEBreaks.com also breaks down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
When you register, MEBreaks.com uses a cookie to store a unique, random user ID.
2. Use of the Information
MEBreaks.com uses any information given by our users to enhance their experience, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the MEBreaks.com Network or to better prepare future features based on the interests of our users.
MEBreaks.com uses your email information to provide more journey matching features. At a user's request we will send out emails notifying the user of replies to specific journey postings. We also provide the option for the user to allow other users to respond to postings directly via their email. Finally, for users who create groups, we can provide many management tools that the user can opt to receive via email. MEBreaks.com may also send the user email notifications of specific changes to our service. MEBreaks.com never shares individual email addresses, telephone numbers or postcodes with any third parties, including advertisers or partners, without prior consent from our users.
If during registration a member opts to be contacted by telephone then their telephone number will be viewable by other members of the scheme.
MEBreaks.com creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for clients and partners. This allows our clients to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive information that is pertinent to their needs.
3. Sharing of the Information
MEBreaks.com uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and to help our clients better understand our audience's demographics. This is essential to keeping our online service free.
From time to time you may receive either HTML email flyers or SMS Blasts from carefully selected 3rd parties. By registering on MEBreaks.com you automatically agree to receive these promotional initiatives. In the event that you no longer want to receive the 3rd party emails or SMS’s please email us as unsubscribe@MEBreaks.com. We do not share individually identifiable information about specific users with any third party without prior consent from the user. MEBreaks.com does not control the practices of our clients. If you have questions about how one of our clients, your administrator, uses information about you please contact them directly (MEBreaks.com will divulge information only as necessary to comply with the law.)
