General Statement You may visit our website without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. However, certain transactions that you choose to engage in on this site will require submission of your personal information, including, but not limited to, profile updates, applications and certain databases. As a general rule, SPCE will not sell, swap, rent, or otherwise disclose to any third party any such personal information for commercial purposes. Such information will be utilised only for the purpose stated. To accomplish such purpose, SPCE may disclose the information to its employees, consultants and agents who have a legitimate need to know the information. SPCE also reserves the right to disclose this information under special circumstances, including disclosures required by law, court order or circumstances under which disclosure, at the sole discretion of SPCE, is necessary to protect the legal rights, including the intellectual property rights, of SPCE.
Use of Information SPCE may collect other information about its users that is not connected with any specific personal identity, such as data about usage and service operation. The following summarises the types of information that we may collect.
System Information, IP Addresses and Referrers When you connect to our website, our web server may record the numerical Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, information about your browser and operating system, date and time of access and the internet address and page which linked you to our web site. The staff of SPCE uses such information to diagnose problems, to administer and improve our website and to generate aggregate statistical reports that analyse general user information and demographics. Unless required by a legal process, we do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that user sessions may be tracked by IP address, but a user's identity remains anonymous.
In addition, we ordinarily do not disclose site usage to third parties by individual IP addresses, but may do so in very limited circumstances when complying with law or legal process, working with consultants assisting us in fixing or improving our site, or in monitoring and improving the security of our network. Our staff monitors search terms that users enter into our Search Engine, but this tracking is never associated with individual users.
