The privacy implications on this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.

 

Visitor Statistics Cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn't working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These so called “analytics” programs also tell us if how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before helping us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing spend.

 

We use:

Advertising Cookies

Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.

You can learn more about online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com . You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices although we would prefer that you didn't as ultimately adverts help keep much of the internet free. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won't see adverts, just simply that they won't be tailored to you any longer.

 

We use:

Banner Adverts

We fund our site by showing adverts as you browse our site. These adverts are usually managed by a partner specialising in providing adverts for multiple sites. Invariably these partners place cookies to collect anonymous data about the websites you visits so they can personalise the adverts to you, ensure that you don't see the same adverts too frequently and ultimately report to advertisers on which adverts are working. Our partners include:

 

Turning Cookies Off

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our's and a large proportion of the world's websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.

It may be that you concerns around cookies relate to so called "spyware". Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.

 

Storing Your Personal Data

In operating our website it may become necessary to transfer data that we collect from you to locations outside of the European Union for processing and storing. By providing your personal data to us, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We do our upmost to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to make sure that your security and policies data is treated stored securely.

Unfortunately the sending of information via the internet is not totally secure and on occasion such information can be intercepted. We cannot guarantee the privacy or security of data that you choose to send us electronically, sending such information is entirely at your own risk.

 

Disclosing Your Information

We will not disclose your personal information or any other terms or policies information to any other party other than in accordance with this privacy policy and in the circumstances detailed below in our terms:

i. In the event that we sell any or all of our business to the buyer.

Common Courtesy To Other Website Users & Contacts

The Really Helpful Club insists that every user of our website displays common courtesy and good manners to every other site user. People posting inappropriate or offensive content will have their access restricted pending investigation and may have their account removed pending the outcome of the investigation.

 

Spam Policy

Many online websites and businesses are blighted by spam generated by unethical members. We specifically request that every new contact joining  The Really Helpful Club refrain from spamming and electronically harassing other contacts connected to the The Really Helpful Club network.

 

Sensitivities

The  Really Helpful Club website manager has compiled a list of sensitivities under our terms and conditions posted elsewhere on this web site. Like other professional networks we expect every The Really Helpful Club contact involved in our business or social networking activities to ensure they remain sensitive and compliant and to ensure they do not violate our code of etiquette, privacy, terms, policies or security terms or any existing or future membership agreement.

 

Third Party Links

On occasion we include links to third parties on this website. Where we provide a link, it does not mean that we endorse or approve that site’s policy towards visitor privacy. You should review their privacy policy before sending them any personal data.

 

Personal Security

All online networks are open to abuse and can be compromised. Our security experts advise every new business contact to be security conscious about any private or confidential information they post on The Really Helpful Club web site.

 

When establishing online contact or when seeking new business many people forget or are lulled into a false sense of personal security when posting information on web sites, forums and blogs.

Our security director strongly advises there is no such concept of 100% security so you should never post any confidential, personal safety sensitive, or private information about you, people or businesses you represent anywhere online. He further advises you use ‘old fashioned common sense’ when you are presented with an opportunity which appears too good to be true as Internet scams, frauds, swindles & false opportunities are rife.
