Privacy Policy

This page details how we make use of any information that you give when you using this website. This site enables you to register for an account and post comments and messages (on our blog and community forum), in order for you to use these features we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified (outlined below).

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected and you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this policy. It is important to note though that we may change this policy from time to time by updating this page, you should therefore check this page to ensure that you are happy with any changes.

Information required when you register:

  • Full Name.
  • Email Address (this needs to be verified).
  • A secure password

Additional information you can provide us with:

  • Your Nickname (used in our community forum).
  • Website Address.

Why do we need your information?

We require the information above in order to allow our users to communicate with each other effectively, as well as minimising the chance that spammers and other nefarious characters will miss use this site. The majority of spam is generated via bots (simple scripts designed to post thousands of nuisance comments in a matter of seconds) or by people sat behind desks punching data into forms. By asking for your name and a verified email address (as well as other spam protection measures we have taken), we dramatically reduce the chance of miss use of this site.

What do we do with your information?

We only use the data we have stored to allow you to communicate with each other via our website. We may also occasionally (in the future) send you a newsletter related to FAD (although you will be able to unsubscribe from this easily if you do not want it).

We are committed to the security of your data and will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless required to so by law.

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information that we gather. Access to our servers is restricted to dedicated locations and all passwords are strongly encrypted using modern encryption algorithms.

Do you use Cookies?

We currently only use cookies to track if you have logged into our site, or to monitor anonymous usage information. These cookies store no personal data, only a reference to your account (stored in our database) or what activities you have been performing on this website.

In the future we may add more complicated user tracking that would require setting cookies that track how you interact with this site. If we add this feature we will update this page and add suitable notifications to the site.
