We values your privacy. To keep you informed, we have created this privacy statement that discloses our purposes and methods for online collection and use of information. This statement applies to all information collected through the vr-news websites and information gathered from any web pages that we host.
Types of Information Collected
Generally, personal information is not collected from visitors to the vr-news websites. However, in order to access certain special services, personal information is requested; those cases are described in more detail below.
If you wish to publish articles on vr-news.com, you can fill in the form here, or e-mail your article to firstname.lastname@example.org. Articles can be expected to be published within 48 hours. vr-news reserves the right to not publish articles which are deemed unsuitable.
vr-news requires a valid e-mail address for users who want to register with the vr-news forum. This allows us to protect our community from abusive postings and provides a verifiable point of contact should legal questions arise. At any time, you have the ability to keep your e-mail address hidden from other users by selecting that option within your user profile.
Also in the forum registration, you have the option of providing some additional information such as occupation, interests, and homepage URL. This information is made available to other forum users to foster a sense of community. If you have any concerns about providing this information, simply leave the fields blank and your registration will still be processed.
Certain activities on our forum involve the use of “cookies” to facilitate your experience. This includes the ability to automatically log you into the forums and show you the new topics since your last visit. You have the option to turn these cookies off at any time by updating your user profile preferences. If your browser doesn’t support cookies, or if you have cookies turned off, these preferences will not be set.
We also use a cookie which collects anonymous traffic data about how people use our forum. This information helps us to improve the website and does not affect anyone’s browsing experience or their privacy.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We do not disclose your personally identifying information to any third parties for any purpose without your prior consent unless required by law to do so. All reasonable care is taken by staff handling personal information to ensure its security both offline and online. It is our policy to destroy server access and personal information provided during the technical support process upon completion of the technical support incident.
It’s also important to be aware that when you voluntarily provide personal information (e.g., last name, address, phone number) in a posting on the forum, that information is publicly available and may be used by someone in a manner unintended by you. For that reason, we discourage the offering of any personally identifying information within the message board itself.
Privacy for Children Aged 12 and Under
Although the forum is generally targeted at an adult audience, we welcome the participation of younger users with their parents’ consent. We strongly recommend that users 12 and under refrain from offering any personal information either in their user profile or in the message boards themselves, and we encourage parents to stay involved in the online life of their children.
Data Protection Act
vr-news complies fully with the UK data protection act. The personal data we store about our member (limited to their email address and date of birth in most cases) is used only for internal purposes and therefore we are not obliged to notify the Information Commissioner’s Office.
