Money Fight Club respects and wants to protect your privacy and any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us – for example, when you sign up to our newsletter.
The type of information we collect
We collect information you give us when you fill in forms online, over the phone, face to face or in written correspondence. We may make and keep a record of the information you share with us.
This also includes information that you provide to us by completing survey or by undertaking questionnaires or quizzes, or as part of a transaction, such as booking training. We may ask you to complete surveys for research purposes (hey, the more we know the more we can help), although you do not have to take part if you’d rather not.
We may use personal information given by you:
(a) to send out competition prizes, notifications and emails
(b) to deal with enquiries or complaints
(c) when we publish comments, articles, competitions or promotions where you’ve contributed information
(d) when we create training programmes, workshops and presentations.
We may disclose information about you to employees, suppliers or partners to:
a) deliver a service to you – such as getting competition sponsors to send out prizes to winners
b) to contact you to ask you to write or contribute to an article for us
c) to deal with a request or question from you
d) to meet our legal requirements or defend our legal rights.
We take precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. But we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
Online information can include web traffic and location data. We may collect information about your computer, including (where available) your IP address, operating system and browser type. This is statistical data about the browsing activity and browsing patterns and does not identify individuals.
