Collection of your Personal Information
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Sekka. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by Sekka for the operation of the Website, to maintain quality of the Website, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Website.
When using our Website and signing up for certain selected services, users must first register. During registration, users are required to give certain contact information (such as name, email address, mailing address, and phone number). Sekka also may collect demographic information (such as job title and other information). For internal purposes, we use this information to communicate with users and provide requested services and to provide a more personalized experience on our Website. We use aggregate demographic information about our audience to improve our service, for marketing purposes, and/or industry reporting purposes.
Many of the Website products and services are free to users. For our products and services that require payment, we also collect credit card information (such as credit card number and expiry date), which is used for billing purposes only, and is not otherwise shared.
Communications between Sekka and You
The Website has certain features where users can submit information to Sekka. Letters to the editor and similar submissions may be made public. By submitting communications to Sekka intended as magazine content, users understand and agree that all communications become the property of Sekka and may also be made public by Sekka.
Requests for service, support, and/or information or other communication with Sekka may be forwarded as needed to best respond to a specific request. Sekka may retain emails and other information sent to us for our internal administrative purposes, and to help us to serve customers better.
In order to best serve our customers, we may send updates that contain important information about our site and services. We may also communicate with a user to provide requested services and for account-related issues via email, phone or regular mail.
We offer our users the option to receive information about our company, related products, services and special deals.
Sekka users are given the opportunity when they register to choose whether to receive information from our affiliates not directly related to the Sekka Magazine. Please note that we will endeavour to implement requests within a reasonable time, although for a time users may continue to receive mailings, etc., transmitted based on information released prior to the implementation of the request. Users will continue to receive information directly related to their registered services, so they always are kept informed.
