Like many websites, this Site collects information from its visitors by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail, private messaging and feedback forms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information including sensitive information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, date of birth, gender, marital status, occupation, photos, videos, opinion and comments applicable to a social media website and so on).
Some areas of this Site may require you to submit information to enable you to benefit from the special features (such as groups, events, updates, private messaging), to participate in a particular activity (such as an event, function, competition or promotion) or to provide you with information on issues and initiatives. You consent to us using and disclosing the information you have submitted to contact you in relation to those special features and activities and to administer your participation in those activities.
Any information posted on bulletin boards or communicated in discussion forums may become public information. While we strive to protect and respect your privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose in a bulletin board or discussion forum.
