Privacy Policy

This site is owned and operated by UK Talk Centre Ltd (ukpostroom.com). Your privacy on the Internet is of the
utmost importance to us. At UK Talk Centre, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy
and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement
discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

INFORMATION UK TALK CENTRE GATHERS AND TRACKS

UK Talk Centre gathers two types of information about users:

* Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to
receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, and from
participation in polls and surveys.

* Information UK Talk Centre gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page
views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to help
our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Because UK Talk Centre
derives its revenue mainly from sponsorships and advertising, providing such aggregated demographic data is
essential to keeping our service free to users. Under no circumstances does UK Post Room divulge any
information about an individual user to a third party.

UK Talk centre Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:

Optional Voluntary Information

We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information
by users:

1. Electronic newsletters policy (Dispatches)
We will offer a free electronic newsletter to users. UK Post Room gathers the email addresses of users who
voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every
newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters
at the time of registration.

2. Message boards/forums policy
Users of the site's Message Boards and Forums must register separately for these services (both are free of
charge) in order to post messages, although they needn't register to visit the site. During registration the user
is required to supply a username, password, and email address.

3. "E-mail this to a friend" policy
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking
"e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This
information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent
the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.

4. Polling
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what
our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not
identifiable to any particular user. UK Post Room may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so
they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual
users.

5. Surveys
UK Post Room may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We
sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers
and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.

Usage tracking
UK Post Room tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this
information with data about individual users. UK Post Room does break down overall usage statistics according
to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string
(information contained in every user's browser).
UK Post Room sometimes tracks and catalogues the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but
this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of
our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but
rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

Cookies
We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not
contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have
specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you
supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. UK Talk
Centre uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). Our advertising system delivers a
one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates.
You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you've set your browser to warn you before
accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies
turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in message boards, forums,
polling and surveys.

Privacy Policy Use

USE OF INFORMATION
UK Post Room uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of
sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content
based on the interests of our users. As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to
send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums.
We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally
send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing.
UK Post Room never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or
partners.

When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic
to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This
helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one
of many measures of what interests our users. But we don't track which terms a particular user enters.

UK Post Room creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors
and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive
advertisements that are pertinent to their needs. Because we don't track the usage patterns of individual users,
an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information
about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal
safety of our users or the public.

SHARING OF THE INFORMATION
UK Post Room uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our
advertisers better understand our audience's demographics. This is essential to keeping our service free. We
will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or
valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

SECURITY
UK Post Room operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection
systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only
authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.

OPT-OUT POLICY
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
* Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.
* Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any
personally identifiable information from our users

YOUR CONSENT
By using this site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by UK Post Room. If we decide
to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what
information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
