IP ADDRESSES

We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.

COOKIES

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

We use interest-based advertising tools provided by Google – these include but are not limited to ‘remarketing’, ‘interest categories’, ‘similar audiences’ and other types of interest-based advertising.

Remarketing is a way for us to connect with users, based upon your past interactions with the VRF Media Limited website. Third-party marketing vendors may be hired by VRF Media Limited to perform remarketing services. As a result, third-party vendors, including Google, may show VRF Media Limited ads on sites on the internet. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to VRF Media Limited’s website.

Any information collected is used only for remarketing purposes and will not be used by them for any other purpose.

WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed outside the EEA by us or by one of our suppliers for the purposes of, but not limited to, sorting and collating information before it is passed to our clients. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

We use information held about you in the following ways:

  • To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.
  • To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.
  • To notify you about changes to our service.

We may also provide our clients with aggregated information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 500 men aged under 30 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day). We may also use such aggregate information to help our clients reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in SW1). We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our clients’ wishes by displaying their goods or services to that target audience.
