Privacy Policy

Your privacy on michaelward.net

The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit.

What information do we gather?

Information on michaelward.net is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our site's technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of michaelward.net).

One example of information we collect indirectly is through our Internet access logs. When you access michaelward.net, your Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs.

We collect information directly from you in a number of ways, some of which we describe in this Privacy Statement. One way is through the use of cookies. Cookies are small files of information which save and retrieve information about your visit to michaelward.net – for example, how you entered our site, how you navigated through the site, and what information was of interest to you. The cookies we use identify you merely as a number. (If you are uncomfortable regarding cookies use, please keep in mind you can disable cookies on your computer by changing the settings in preferences or options menu in your browser.)

We also collect information when you voluntarily submit it to us. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.

How do we use this information?

Information about how you navigated the site is analysed to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and eventually, to determine how we can tailor michaelward.net to make it more effective. Information you provide in registering for our notifications is added to our database for marketing purposes. We may also use data for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point we collect the information.

Will we share this information with outside parties?

No, absolutely not.

What about sensitive personal data?

If we seek to collect such data, we will ask you to consent to our proposed uses of the data. We may also collect some sensitive personal data incidentally. By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to our using the data subject to applicable law as described in this Privacy Statement. The references to "sensitive personal data" are to the various categories of personal data identified by European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent.

Do we give you access to your information?

You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can do this by contacting us at .

What about data security?

As far as possible, we take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data. You should understand, however, 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.

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 at .
