Personal Information

We collect personally identifiable information, such as names, e-mail addresses, demographic information, and similar information in a variety of situations, including but not limited to the following: (i) when you register at our website as a subscriber or contributor; (ii) when you enter personal information on our website to participate in competitions, promotions, or raffles; (iii) when you take out an advertisement on our website or (iv) when you sign up to our newsletter.

We can also access information from social media activity such as when you ‘like’ the website, share content or follow us. 

We do not collect credit card data, nor any financial information as all advertisement orders are fulfilled offline by a third-party. It is not currently possible to buy an Advertisement on our website. If you wish to buy an advert on our website, you must contact us.

Our website automatically collects certain information, such as your IP address, browser type, domain name, access times and referring website address. This helps facilitate your online experience at our website. See Sections 4 and 5 of this Privacy Policy and our Cookie Policy for more detail on cookies, web beacons, and other information collected automatically.

2. What do we do with Collected Information?

We use the personal information you provide to fulfil your requests, to improve our publication and service, to email you promotional offers related to Skydive Mag or our partners, and to operate our business. We only email offers to those who request this by opting in. A user may, at any time, opt out of receiving promotional offers by email. We also use collected information to evaluate and administer our services, respond to any technical problems that may arise, and to gauge reader trends to determine what items are most popular with users.

3. How do we Share Personal Information?

We share your personal information only as described below.

Public Postings

You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose information, personal or otherwise, online in any community area (whether through Skydive Mag’s Site or any other service available online), that information can be collected and used by others. Accordingly, you should use caution when sharing any personal information with others in any community area (whether through Skydive Mag or any other service available online).

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Required Disclosures of Information

We reserve the right to use or disclose any information without notice or consent as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request; to conduct investigations of consumer complaints or possible breaches of law; to protect the integrity of our Site and our property and assure adherence to our terms of use; to protect the safety of our visitors or others; to fulfil your requests; or to cooperate in any legal investigation or process.

Changes in Corporate Structure

In developing our business, we might sell certain assets, or the company, or parts of it, may be sold, merged or otherwise transferred. In such transactions, user information, whether personally identifiable or otherwise, may be one of the transferred assets.

4. How do we Use Cookies?

Your Web browser offers ‘cookies’ which, if you allow their use, store small amounts of data on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information about you and therefore cannot be used to identify you personally. Cookies assist us in tracking which of our features you like best, and also enable us to customise our content according to your preferences. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your browser and our website is viewable even if you disable the cookie function on your browser. However, if you disable cookies, some advanced and customised features or offerings on our site will not be available to you. It is important to remember that we are offering the user a free service. To enjoy this service at its best, we recommend enabling the use of cookies.

Additionally, we may use third-party companies to collect non-personally identifiable information (for example, the pages you visit, which links you click, which ads you see and click on, and the categories of search terms you enter) when you visit our Site. Some of these third-party companies collect information when serving advertisements on our site, while others collect information without showing ads. These companies may use the information outlined above (which does not include your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your browsing history in order to provide Advertisers with feedback on their Campaigns, to provide us with analytical data on article popularity and to improve your user experience. These companies often use a cookie or third-party web beacon to collect this information.

More detail about how we use cookies can be found in our Cookie Policy.

5. How do we use Web Beacons, Web Analytics, and Other Behavioural Marketing Technologies?

A number of technologies exist to assess consumer behaviour both online and off-line. Skydive Mag employs a variety of these technologies, including web beacons (see below), web analytics techniques, and other behaviour marketing technologies, to assess consumer behaviour and to understand how we can better serve our readers.

For these technologies, we automatically collect non-personal information from you, including but not limited to the following types of information: Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login, email address; computer and connection information such as browser type and related browser data; content viewed; which may be aggregated with other information for analytic purposes. 

Some of our web pages, email messages, and/or newsletters may contain electronic images known as web beacons, which are also called single-pixel gifs. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information, but they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about the usage of our website and to track the number of users who have opened our email messages. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.

6. What about Third-Party Advertisers?

We use third-parties to serve the advertisements that are placed within our Site and they may use information (not including personally identifiable information) about your visits to our site and other sites to assist in serving advertisements to you. These companies may employ cookies, web beacons, and action tags to measure advertising effectiveness. They may share anonymous information with our Advertisers, such as date/time of the banner ad shown, the specific ad shown, the IP address, etc.

7. Will my Data be Sent Overseas?

The internet does not recognize national boundaries. Services on the web are accessible globally so collection and transmission of personal data is not always confined to one country.

You should be aware that by using the Site and those of our Advertisers or any website we link through to, your personal data may be processed in or transferred to other countries, and you agree to your personal data being transferred or processed in this way.

Your personal data will only be stored or transferred within the UK, EU or US under the EU-US Privacy Shield, or using other safeguards that have been approved by the relevant regulatory body.

8. How can you Control your Personal Information?

We believe that choice in how and when you are contacted is important, so we will only email you or pass on your details to third-parties if you opt-in. We offer several ways for you to update your contact information, change your preferences, opt-out of communications or take action. 
(1) If you are registered on our Site, you can log on and change your contact or account information.
(2) You may unsubscribe to any of our online email newsletters or competition mailings by following the unsubscribe instructions in the body of any email message. 
(3) If you wish to change your preferences and no longer have your personal information shared with third-parties, please contact us. In those instances, we will retain your information in a ‘do not promote’ file in our database, and you will receive no further communications from us. 
(4) You may also contact us for any enquiry or request regarding our privacy policy or the handling of your personal information. 
If you have opted out of receiving future emails from us, we will implement your opt-out request within 10 business days of receiving the request.
(5) If you have an account on this site you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.

9. Security of your Personal Information

We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt important information. We incorporate standard industry practices suitable to the degree of sensitivity of the information involved to maintain the security of your personal information and to avoid its disclosure except as described in this policy. Your personal information may also be protected by the password you created when you registered. The confidentiality of any password is yours to protect. You may change it at any time by following the instructions on the Site. Although we use our best efforts to assure that your data remains secure when maintained by us, security during Internet transmissions or within any system cannot be assured. We limit access to personal data only to those Skydive Mag employees with a specific need to retrieve this information. We store data on multiple service systems, in controlled, secure environments. Remember, however, that we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information, and we are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of any third-party.

10. Third-Parties and Links

In the event that you provide personal information to any third-party via the Skydive Mag Site or any offer made available by Skydive Mag, you understand that we are not responsible for such third-parties’ use or misuse of your personal information. You should review the privacy and information sharing practices of such third-parties. Additionally, Skydive Mag may offer links to or from other websites operated by third-parties. We offer links to third-party sites so that you can conveniently visit our advertisers or locate relevant content likely to be of interest. We are not responsible for the content, practices or policies of sites operated by third-parties and urge you to inquire about them before providing any personally-identifiable information.
