Privacy and Cookies

This is a privacy policy for Fantastar. Our homepage on the Web is located at http://www.fantastar.com.

At Fantastar we collect different types of information about our users for three main reasons:

1. To help us to improve the services we offer.

2. To provide personalised services unique to individual users.

3. To use anonymous details about our users to sell appropriate advertising space on the site. This might mean showing an advertiser how many users we have on the site; it does not mean sharing an individual's details with an advertiser. Where we collect registration information from an individual, we will never share that individual's information with a third party, including an advertiser, without that user's explicit permission.

Our principles

We are absolutely committed to protecting your privacy. Our policy can be summarised in one sentence: we will not share your information with others without your prior consent. We have also established the following principles:

1. We will respect your email privacy. You will not receive unsolicited mail from Fantastar and/or from third parties screened by Fantastar Limited unless you have agreed to this. We will, however, mail you occasionally with information about your registration and/or your subscription account.

2. We will not pass on any individual user details (including your email address) unless we have your prior consent.

3. Otherwise, we will only share anonymous aggregate statistics about our users, sales and traffic patterns with our advertisers.

Should we elect to change our privacy policy we will post the changes here. Where the changes are significant, we may also choose to email all our registered users with the new details.

What information do we collect?

We collect information on our users in two ways: through cookies, and through registration.

The minimum information we need to register a user is an email address, a name and a password. We will ask further questions for different services, including competitions. Unless stated, all registration questions are compulsory. We also ask some further, voluntary questions so we can gain a clearer understanding of our users. Your responses help us to sell appropriate advertising space and so keep the subscription fees as low as possible. They also enable us to personalise services for our users. We do not share this information with third parties unless you have specifically consented to this.

We also collect data listing which of our pages are most frequently visited and by which types of users.

How do we use cookies?

This website uses cookies to personalise your experience and to help us improve the website. Some cookies on this site are essential, and the site won't work as expected without them. These cookies are set when you submit a form, or interact with the site by doing something that goes beyond clicking on simple links. We also use some non-essential cookies to anonymously track visitors or enhance your experience of the site. If you're not happy with this, you may adjust your browser settings to block this website from storing cookies.

How does Fantastar protect customer information?

We invest in high-quality security and do our utmost to protect user privacy. We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access.

Will Fantastar disclose the information it collects to outside parties?

Fantastar will not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others unless you have given us your permission. With your permission we will only share the information with carefully chosen, reputable and trustworthy third parties. Also, Fantastar may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.

Fantastar follows the relevant legal requirements and uses all reasonable precautions to ensure only responsible third parties see the information, however we are not responsible for any breach of security or any actions of any third parties who receive the information.

Please note that we reserve the right to access and disclose individually identifiable information to comply with applicable laws and lawful government requests, to operate our systems properly and to protect both ourselves and our users.
