When you supply any personal information to Sancron Ringtones (e.g., for competitions, Sancron Ringtones Community services or Sancron Ringtones membership) we may have legal obligations towards you based upon privacy laws and regulations in the way we deal with that data. We will collect the information fairly, that is, we will explain how we will use it and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else. The information you provide to Sancron Ringtones will be used for the following reasons: to ensure that content from our site is presented to you in the most effective manner and to personalize your visit to our site; to enable us to continuously enhance the Sancron Ringtones service, to serve advertising, and to provide to you information, products or services which we feel may be of interest to you (which also helps keep our service free); to occasionally carry out market research including internal analytical research which will enable us to constantly improve your experience on Sancron Ringtones; to carry out our obligations arising from any agreements that may have been entered into between you and us; to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so; and to notify you about changes to or other information about our service. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service(s) you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, in the case of you no longer wish to continue your status as a Sancron Ringtones member. In some circumstances it may be necessary to retain your personal information to deal with any disputes. Accordingly, Sancron Ringtones may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of Sancron Ringtones Community services for a period necessary to fulfill such purpose. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other Sancron Ringtones services (e.g. competitions), that information will be held only as long as necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Your personal data will be stored on our backup system, which is kept in case of loss of data. It may be that where data is lost, the personal data held on you as part of our backup system is used to restore your account to its status before the loss of data. All personal data (including communication data) stored on the backup system shall be held in accordance with the Data Retention Directive. 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 procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access. Sancron Ringtones may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for.
