Decentwebexperts regards your privacy as very important. We therefore follow strict security procedures in accordance with our legal obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998 (the "Act"). This policy, together with our terms and conditions sets out the basis on which any Personal Data we collect from you or that you provide to us, will be processed by us.
1. Personal Data
2. Email Address
2.1. When you first register as a user of Decentwebexperts, we ask for your email address. We will use your email address to communicate important information about your account, such as payments due, or to reset your password.
2.3. If you choose to become a member of one of our other customers' sites, you are agreeing to disclose your email address to the administrator of that site. Through Decentwebexperts, a site administrator can choose to mail individual members, groups of members or the entire membership of the site. When you join, you can choose to not be part of the mailing list. You can at any time choose to remove yourself from the mailing list of a site by using the unsubscribe function at the end of every email sent from the Decentwebexperts system.
2.4. If you are logged in to any Decentwebexperts site, and choose to post information, your posting will, by default, include your email address. You can remove or edit this address before you submit your posting. You may also choose to be notified by our system of replies or updates, in which case your email address will again be used.
2.5. If you build a site with us, you provide a site email address that is published on your site as a way of contacting the site owner. This defaults to your email address, but can be updated through Manage Your Site.
3. Other Personal Data
3.1. If you choose to subscribe to Decentwebexperts, we ask you some additional personal questions such as your age, gender, occupation, postal/ZIP code and country. We also collect Personal Data about your browser, login times and IP addresses when you visit any Decentwebexperts sites.

"Sensitive personal data" includes information about a person's racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health or condition or sexual life, or about the commission of, or proceedings for, any offence committed or alleged to have been committed by that person, the disposal of such proceedings or the sentence of any court in such proceedings. We may only process sensitive personal data under strict conditions, and will usually require the express consent of the person concerned.

9.1. Cookies are small pieces of information which are stored by the browser on your computer. Only the information that you provide, or the choices you make while visiting a website, can be stored in a cookie. Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer, and only the site that created the cookie can read it.
