Privacy Statement

UK Mistresses is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of UK Mistresses. This policy may change from time to time.

What personally identifiable information is collected from you?

UK Mistresses collects information in several ways from different parts of our web site.

We may ask you for personal information at certain times, including (but not limited to) when you place ads or take advantage of the other features of UK Mistresses, for example our Message Board. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

What cookies are and how they are used

As part of offering and providing customisable and personalised services, UK Mistresses may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Certain features of UK Mistresses require that you accept cookies in order to work properly.

Advertising networks that serve ads onto UK Mistresses may use their own cookies.

UK Mistresses may also collect IP addresses for system administration and security purposes.

How your information is used

The primary goal of UK Mistresses in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with a customised experience and to assist your navigation throughout our classifieds section and our message boards.

Who is collecting your information?

When you are asked for personal information on UK Mistresses, you are sharing that information with UK Mistresses alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. However, some activities will, by their very nature, result in your personal information being revealed to other users of UK Mistresses. For example, when you enter personal information on the classified ad posting form, this information will generally be included in your ad, unless specifically stated otherwise.

With whom your information may be shared?

As a general rule, UK Mistresses never discloses any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. Please see our Terms and Conditions of Service for each of our products and services for more detailed information about how your personal information may be shared.

UK Mistresses may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms of Service of UK Mistresses or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights or property of UK Mistresses, other users of UK Mistresses, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. UK Mistresses may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.

What choices are available to you regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?

If you choose not to provide personal information, you can still use some areas of UK Mistresses, but you will not be able to access areas or use features that require you to submit personal information, such as posting ads or registering to use our message boards.

You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those services of UK Mistresses that require registration in order to participate. You can still use most of the features of UK Mistresses even if you do not accept cookies.

UK Mistresses does not sell or rent user information to anyone for any reason.

How you can access, update or delete your information

We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may edit or delete your ads or messages at any time by clicking on the appropriate link or graphic provided by the system.

The kind of security precautions that are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information

Other than the administrators of UK Mistresses or other authorised personnel of UK Mistresses, you are the only person who has access to your personal information. Your ads and messages are password-protected to prevent unauthorised access.

We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. UK Mistresses will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, UK Mistresses cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

How UK Mistresses protects children

UK Mistresses is an adult web site. We firmly believe in freedom of speech on the internet, but also believe that parents should take responsibility for what their children see. We will not tolerate any advertisements or messages which appear to be aimed at persons under the age of 18 years. Parents should install one of the many available protection systems which prevent their children from seeing mature content. If we believe or suspect that an individual is aiming advertisements or messages at children, we will immediately communicate such information as we possess about that individual, including, but not limited to, IP Numbers, to the appropriate law enforcement organisation.

What else you should know about your online privacy

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example in ads that you post, through email or through messages - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
