Full Circle Initiatives Ltd is the sole owner of the information collected on the Site. We collect information from our users at several different points on our Web site.
In order to use Our Service, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give contact information including name and email address. We use this information to contact the user about services on our site for which he has expressed interest. Other personal information, such as a user's personal address and contact telephone numbers are optional and primarily intended for competition organisers to share them with other users for promotional purposes.
In order to submit a competition for inclusion in the Directory, we require information from the user on our Directory listing order form. A user must also provide contact information (such as name, email and address). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders.

Profile information is used primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information.
We store information that we collect through log files, and via the information provided during the Directory Submit service, to create a profile of our users. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that details their characteristics.

You may change your Profile settings at any time to configure who is able to view your information by logging into your account and following the relevant instructions.
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

We may communicate with registered users to notify them of a breach in our acceptable use guidelines. We may also send users emails to request they change part of their public profile, including their photo or description, or to notify them that we have temporarily edited or unpublished their profile in accordance with Our Terms. As part of the Community, registered users may also receive messages from other users.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose Your Personal Information if required to do so by law, or if We believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (1) comply with any legal process served on Us or the Website or in circumstances where We are under a substantially similar legal obligation; (2) protect and defend Our rights or property; or (3) act to protect the personal safety of users of the Website or the public.

Notice of Change
If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
If you have any requests or queries concerning your personal information or wish to correct or change any information we have about you, please contact us by writing to Full Circle Initiatives Ltd, 1-6 Clay Street, London W1U 6DA, United Kingdom, or use the contact form provided.
