1. Collection of Data.
To use certain services on the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site a user may be required to register. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for this purpose.

2. Information We Collect.
In general, you can browse the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Once you give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us. If you choose to use our services, we require you to provide contact and identity information, financial information and other personal information as indicated on the forms throughout the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site. Where possible, we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. You always have the option not to provide information by choosing not to use a particular service or feature.

We automatically collect and process certain information based upon your use of the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site but we do not sell or intentionally pass on the information you provide.

We use data collection devices such as "cookies" on certain pages of the Site. "Cookies" are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing customised services and to help promote safer trading. We also offer certain features that are only available through the use of a cookie. We also use cookies to allow you to enter your password less frequently while you are using the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site.

If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.

3. Our Use of Your Information.
We use information in the files we maintain about you, and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site, to resolve disputes, provide customer support, troubleshoot problems and enforce our Terms of Use.

You agree that we may use personally identifiable information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze site usage, improve our content and product offerings, and customise the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site content, layout, and services. These uses improve the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site and better tailor it to meet your needs.

You agree that we may use your registered e-mail address to send you information about your item or details of any special offers and promotions we may run from time to time. You also consent that we may pass on your e-mail address to other MyOwnCreation users who request details about your home.

4. Our Disclosure of Your Information.
MyOwnCreation.co.uk will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent.

By listing or advertising an item on the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site you must provide a valid email address as a form of contact for the item. Your email address will be the only piece of information about you that will be revealed to another user and by registering on the MyOwnCreation.co.uk website you give your consent for this to be done. Other contact information is concealed from other users and is only passed on by you in further correspondence between you and the other user. Although our pages are coded with robot exclusion headers, individuals and corporations may illegally attempt to automatically collect your email address from our web site.

We aggregate (gather up data across all user accounts) personally identifiable information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for other marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to identify you personally.

We cannot ensure that all of your communications with MyOwnCreation.co.uk and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. For example, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse your information that they collect from the MyOwnCreation.co.uk web site.

MyOwnCreation.co.uk uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, including encryption, "firewalls" and Secure Socket Layers. MyOwnCreation.co.uk treats data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorised access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorised access by users inside and outside the company. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
