Birdtrader is committed to protecting your right to privacy as a consumer of our online services.
It is our policy to respect the privacy of private communication and the information you provide to us will be held on Birdtrader computers that are based in the UK.
We collect information about our users in order to help us continually improve the service we offer and so that we can enter into commercial arrangements, including the sale of advertising space, to provide more for our customers. Birdtrader will always adhere to the UK Data Protection Legislation.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the advantage-ads.co.uk features. Each browser is different, so check the 'Help' menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse advantage-ads.co.uk anonymously until such time as you wish to register for Birdtrader services. For further information on cookies please visit www.aboutcookies.org.
What data do we collect?
We will collect personal data as provided to us during the registration process, which you agree to supply us as accurate. We will also collect personal data from other parts of the Birdtrader site as required, for example, when customers enter competitions. We do not monitor your use of the Internet but we do use cookie technology to monitor your use of the Birdtrader service. This information is not stored alongside your personal data and will only be used on an anonymous, aggregated basis. We may hold personal data relating to the transactions you enter into with Birdtrader or others through Birdtrader such as online retailers. We may also ask for other data so that we can obtain a better understanding of our users' requirements. This information will help us to sell appropriate advertising space and provide better personalisation services for our users.
What do we do with the data we collect?
We may use personal information about you to build up a profile of your interests and preferences. When you supply us with your details there will be a box to tick if you do not wish to receive email newsletters or other information which may be of interest to you. This information will not be disclosed to third parties.
