50Plus Forum Privacy Policy

Introduction

50Plus Forum takes your right to privacy seriously, and wants you to feel comfortable using the Forum. This privacy policy deals with personally-identifiable information (referred to as "data" below) that may be collected by this site. This policy does not apply to other entities that are not owned or controlled by the site, or that are not under the site editor's control. This includes external links, quotes or other information posted by registered forum members. Please take time to read this site's terms of use.

1. Collection of data

Registration of a user account on this site requires only a valid e-mail address and a user name that has not been used already. You are not required to provide any other information if do not want to. Please be aware that the user name you choose, the e-mail address you provide and other information you provide may render you personally identifiable. As on many web sites, the site may also automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie information. Whatever information you post within your User Profile and forum posts is never used by this site for advertising purposes, and is not viewable by unregistered members, members who are not logged in, the general public or search engines. Security is as tight as possible.

2. Use of data

Data may be used to customize and improve your user experience on this site. If it is found that your use of this site violates this policy, terms of service, or other usage guidelines, or if it is deemed reasonably necessary by the site admin to protect the sites legal rights and or property; or (vi) this site is purchased by a third party, in which case that third party will be able to use the data in the same manner as set forth in this Policy. In the event you choose to use links that appear on 50Plus Forum to visit other web sites, you are advised to read the privacy policies that appear on those sites.

3. Cookies

Like many web sites, 50Plus Forum sets and uses cookies to enhance your user experience, such as retaining your personal settings. Advertisements do not appear on 50Plus Forum. However, if members post hyperlinked advertisements within their message posts, pms or profile the parties serving the advertising do not have access to this site's cookies.

4. Minors

People aged 49 or younger are not allowed to become registered users of this site. For more information, please contact the webmaster.

5. Editing or deleting your account information

This site provides you with the ability to edit the information in your user account that you provided to during the registration process, by visiting your User Control Panel. You may request deletion of your user account by contacting the webmaster. Content or other information that you may have provided, and that is not contained within your user account, such as posts that may appear within the forums, may continue to remain on the site at the site editor's discretion, even though your user account is deleted, unless you specifically state that you wish all your previous posts to be deleted along with your account.

6. Changes to this privacy policy

Changes may be made to this policy from time to time. You will be notified of substantial changes to this policy either by through the posting of a prominent announcement on the site, and or by a message being sent to the e-mail address you have provided, which is contained in your user settings.

7. NO GUARANTEES

While this privacy policy states standards for maintenance of data, and while efforts will be made to meet the said standards, the site is not in a position to guarantee compliance with these standards. There may be factors beyond the site's control that may result in disclosure of data. Consequently, the site editor offers no warranties or representations as regards maintenance or nondisclosure of data.
