This activity also helps us generate income as advertisers find this activity useful in planning campaigns. NB. Unless you are logged in you cannot be identified personally while you browse the site.

We may also provide anonymous and/or consolidated statistics about user's browsing activity to reputable third party vendors, but these will not include details that would allow the recipient to identify you.

In the event of a site or company sale, we will also provide this data, in full, to the new owner.

Cookies

A cookie is a data file that certain web sites write to your computer's hard drive when you visit such sites. Our site uses cookies to recognise returning visitors and to deliver content specific to your interests. We use this data on an anonymous basis and we do not correlate this information with personal data of any user but may use it to personalise your experience on the site.

Most web site browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser settings to display a warning before accepting a cookie, or to refuse all cookies. However, if you choose to disable the receipt of cookies from our web site, you may not be able to use certain features of the site.

Enhanced Entries, Placing Advertisements and Subscriptions

When you order an enhanced listing, place an ad, or subscribe to any member service on walescymru.com there is certain information we need to obtain to enable us to process and fulfil your order, or contact you in case of a query. Details we may collect include:

  • Forename and surname
  • Company name and address
  • Home address and post code
  • Occupation
  • Telephone number
  • Mobile number
  • Email address
  • Date/Year of birth
  • Gender
  • Income
  • Personal interests

However, other relevant information may be collected if we deem it necessary.

In addition to any government agencies that have a legitimate requirement to view these details, My City My Site Ltd may also provide selected third parties access to some of this information. In all cases such access will be restricted to the minimum information necessary to carry out the commercial transaction, such as a room or event booking.

Personal Information

In terms of the personal information you submit when placing your order with walescymru.com, this is held with the utmost commitment to your privacy.

The information is stored on a secure web server and in accordance with the UK Data Protection Act 1998.

When payments are made to walescymru.com, we regard security and convenience as top priorities; this is why we use companies that are experts in these fields for all payments, namely Protx and Barclaycard.

If you use a web based payment page to pay for your enhanced listing, ad or subscription the credit/debit card details you submit are encapsulated using Protx’s encrypted and digitally-signed protocol, before they are passed to Barclaycard for processing. This entire process is done using Secure Socket Layer (SSL), the industry standard for transmitting confidential information on the web using data encryption, ensuring that the information passed on to us is secure and tamper-proof. However SSL has been designed to work with Mozilla and Explorer browsers and you will need to have at least Netscape Navigator 3 or Internet Explorer 3 to take advantage of this added security.

We believe that your privacy is important and have security in place to protect it. However if this security is breached we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
