Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. When using your personal information Coracle will act in accordance with current legislation.

We collect certain information you provide to us, such as when you create an account or profile or send us an email. We may collect certain personal information like your name, picture, email address, phone number, as well as information about your friends if you choose to connect your address book to Coracle, as well as your login credentials to your social network accounts such as Facebook and Twitter if you choose to connect those accounts with your Coracle account.

We automatically collect information such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type and address of referring site and your activity on the Coracle site. This information is not treated as personal information unless we combine it with or link it to any of the personal identifiable information mentioned above. When you supply any personal information to Coracle we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use that data. In general, any information you provide to Coracle will only be used by Coracle and by its agents. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on a Coracle website or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on a Coracle website, Coracle can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.

We may automatically collect certain information through the use of ”cookies”.

What are ”cookies”?

Cookies are small files that get stored on your computer, tablet or phone when you visit a website.

There are two types of cookie.

  • Session cookies. These are deleted when you close your browser.

To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage or delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org

If you delete cookies relating to Coracle websites we will not remember things about you, including your cookie preferences, and you will be treated as a first time visitor the next time you visit the site.

We use the information collected for the purposes of:

  • providing our services or information you request and to process and complete any transactions
  • to respond to your emails, submissions, questions, comments, requests and complaints and provide customer service
  • to monitor and analyse usage and trends and to personalise and improve your experiences when you use our sites, such as providing content or features that match your profile and interests, and to increase the functionality and user friendliness of the service
  • to send you confirmations, updates, support and administrative messages and otherwise facilitate your use of, and our administration and operation of, our services.

What information will we share with third parties?

We will not share the personal information we have collected from you, except: – with certain social networking services, if you allow such sharing through our services – with service providers who are working with us in connection with the operation of our site or services (these service providers have access to your personal information only to perform services on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose it or use it for any other purpose) – when we believe in good faith that we are lawfully authorised or required to do so or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to comply with the law or legal processes or respond to lawful requests or legal authorities, including responding to lawful subpoenas, warrants or court orders – in connection with or during negotiations of any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition, or in any other situation where personal information may be disclosed or transferred as one of our business assets.

We are not responsible for the actions of service providers or other third parties, nor are we responsible for any additional information you provide directly to any third parties.

Reasonable steps

We take reasonable measures to protect your personal information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect and no method of data transmissions can be guaranteed against interception or other type of misuse.
