What personal data we collect and why we collect it:
Your information is collected via two ways. Firstly, by browsing “Copywriters Forum” it will cause the phpBB software to create a number of cookies. Cookies are small text files that are downloaded on to your computer’s web browser temporary files. The first two cookies just contain a user identifier (“user-id”) and an anonymous session identifier (“session-id”). These small text files are automatically assigned to you by the platform. A third cookie will be created once you have browsed topics within “Copywriters Forum” and is used to store which topics you have read during your session, thereby improving your user experience.

The second way we collect your information is by what you submit to us. This can be, and is not limited to, posting in the forums, registering on “Copywriters Forum” (creating your account) and any contact information you choose to share within your profile or on the forums.

Your account will at a bare minimum contain a uniquely identifiable name (your user name), a personal password used for logging into your account, and a valid email address (your email). Your information in your account at “Copywriters Forum” is protected by strong encryption and data-protection laws applicable in the country that hosts us. Any information beyond your user name, date of registration, and post count can be shown or hidden by you from within your personal user control panel (profile page). In all cases you have the option of what information in your account is publicly displayed. Furthermore, within your account you have the option to opt-in or opt-out of automatically generated emails from “Copywriters Forum”. These emails include things like private messages from other members and alert notices when someone replies to a post you have subscribe to.

Your password is ciphered (a one-way hash) so that it is secure. However, it is recommended that you do not reuse the same password across a number of different websites. Your password is the means of accessing your account at “Copywriters Forum”, so please guard it carefully and under no circumstance will anyone affiliated with “Copywriters Forum” ask you for your password. Should you forget your password for your account, you can use the “I forgot my password” feature provided on the login page. This process will ask you to submit your user name and your email, then the platform will generate a new random password for you to reclaim your account.

Occasionally someone may ask us to broadcast their offer to our members. Only after we check out the offer, and only if it is high quality and we believe it will be useful to you, we may send an email to make you aware of the offer. If this happens, the email will come directly from us, and the product owner will never receive any of your info from us (not even your email address).
