1. Our Principles
PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK's Privacy Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us, and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and associated services. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current Internet best practice. This statement will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and our members' needs.

2. What information do we collect?
We collect information on our users in two ways: through website usage data including cookies (see below), and through registration.
Registration allows you to use advanced features of the PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK website, such as the facility to contribute articles or take part in online discussions.
When you register on the PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK site you knowingly choose to provide PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK with personal information. The minimum information we need to register a user is their name, email address and a username of their choosing. By default, only the username will be visible to other users, unless you explicitly choose to make more of your details available to other users of the PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK website. Any further details you choose to supply about yourself and your company when you register are provided at your own discretion.
If you submit articles to the site or take part in discussions, we may retain the content of your articles, posts and related responses. You may be identified as the author of any content you supply to the PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK website by reference to the details you have chosen to make available to the public upon registration, and subsequently. (See the Publishing Disclaimer for details of PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK's policy on the use of content supplied by users of the PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK website.)
We also allow users to update their personal information and newsletter subscription status at any time.

3. Email updates
Users can opt-in to receive regular email updates from PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK when they register for the PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK website, or when they update their personal information.
Users can also opt to receive email updates without registering on the PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK website by providing their email address only. PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK will retain the email address until they receive a request to unsubscribe sent from the same email address.
PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK email updates will typically be sent once a month, although additional emails about PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK services may also be sent from time to time. Subscribers will be notified if the frequency with which email updates are sent changes.
Only users who have opted in will receive email updates from PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK. We will never intentionally solicit or proactively send promotional emails to users unless they have explicitly asked to receive this type of communication.
Any user can opt out of communications at any time by updating their personal profile, by following the Unsubscribe instructions published in every PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK email update, or by sending an email with 'UNSUBSCRIBE' in the subject line to the editor.

4. Events
When booking for an event or course you will be asked for information such as your name, address, company and telephone number. This data will be retained by PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK for purposes relating to the administration of that event, and may also be used to monitor usage of PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK's website and other activities.
By registering for an event, you agree to receive communication relating to that event.

5. Sharing your information.
At no time will we sell or release your personal data to any third party organisation (subject to the Exclusions stated below). Many organisations collect data in order to sell on to partners and affiliates, but PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK has no intention of doing this.

6. Cookies and Website usage data

Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser software on the user’s hard drive. Cookies provide non-personal statistical information about visits to pages on the site, which may include the duration of individual page views, paths taken by visitors through the site, the websites visited just before and just after our website, and other general information.

8. Security
Should you send confidential personal information, such as credit card details, to the PRECIOUS ONLINE MAGAZINE AND NETWORK website via the appropriate forms and interfaces, the information will be transmitted via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which is the industry standard method for protecting web communications. The SSL security protocol provides data encryption, server authentication, message integrity and client authentication to ensure that not only is the data encrypted before we receive it, but the information can only be understood by authorised computers.
Other email that you send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information to us through an unsecured email. Please use the appropriate forms and interfaces provided for such circumstances.
Periodically, our business practices are reviewed for compliance with industry standard policies and procedures governing the security and confidentiality of our information.

We request that all visitors to our website aged 16 and under do not disclose or provide any personally identifiable information. If we discover that an individual aged 16 or under has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete such information from our records.

10. Exclusions
