Safeguarding your rights
The privacy of our users is important to us and we take care to safeguard it. This policy explains how we use your personal information and elaborates on our Data Protection notice (which is displayed at the point of user registration).
What information do we collect?
When you register as a user, we will collect the information necessary to provide the service which includes your name and an e-mail address. You will also be asked to provide your location and address, but you can register without providing these details. Once you are registered, you can revisit your profile at any time to amend these details or to provide additional details.
We will also collect information from you if you complete any other forms on our site or if you contact us with comments or specific requests.
What do we use personal information for?
We want to provide a service which is personalised to each of our visitors. We also want to give you control of what you receive as a result of registering with itison.com.
From time to time we may also run deals in partnership with third parties who might then want to contact you. But don’t worry; if they do we’ll always ask your permission first, otherwise we’ll never share your details.
