1. Collection of data
We retain two types of information:
This is data that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you and may include your first name, last name, personal e-mail, work e-mail, employer, job-title, country of residence, phone number, photograph, and user IP addresses in circumstances where they have not been deleted, clipped or anonymised. Such information is only collected from you if you voluntarily submit it to us.
Like most websites, we gather statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate basis of all visitors to our website. This Non-Personal Data comprises information that cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information regarding, for example, user IP addresses where they have been clipped or anonymised, browser types and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our website.
Registration for an account on this Website requires your first name, last name, work e-mail, employer, job-title, country of residence, phone number and a user name that has not been chosen already. You are not required to provide any other information if you do not want to. Only you decide which of these and other personal information about you will become publicly available via your account at CatManPeople. Please be aware that the user name you choose, the e-mail address you provide and any other information you enter may render you personally identifiable, and may possibly be displayed on this Website intentionally (depending on choices you make during the registration process, or depending on the way in which the Website is configured) or unintentionally (subsequent to a successful act of intrusion by a third party). As on many Websites, CatManPeople may also automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie information. Information about how advertising may be served on this Website (if it is indeed CatManPeople’s policy to display advertising) is set forth below.
We will use your registration information in order to:
1.1 administer your accounts with us;
1.2 send you information about our products and services (only where you have given consent, see below for details);
1.3 verify your identity;
1.4 carry out marketing analysis and make general improvements to the Website;
1.5 obtain your views and comments on the services we provide;
1.6 supply your contact details to third parties who may be interested in providing you with products or services (only where you have given consent, see below for details).
You acknowledge the above mentioned ways of use of your registration information and grant us your consent with such a use. Should you not wish that you registration information be used in any of these ways, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or de-register from your account. By accepting these Privacy Policies you grant us your consent with the processing of your personal information in accordance with Article 7, Article 10 (1) lit. (d) section 2 and other relevant provisions of the Data Protection Act for a period of duration of your account at CatManPeople.com.

2. Disclosure of date to third-parties
We may provide Non-Personal Data to third parties, where such information is combined with similar information of other users of our website. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who visit our website, the demographic breakdown of our community users of our website, or the activities that visitors to our website engage in while on our website. The third parties to whom we may provide this information may include other users, potential or actual advertisers, providers of advertising services (including website tracking services), commercial partners, sponsors, licensees, researchers and other similar parties.

We may pass your information onto our business partners or to other selected third parties to enable them to send you information which may be of interest to you, but only if you have given us permission to do so. If you want to stop being contacted by our business partners or third-parties, you can opt out at any time by changing your personal status on the Website, or contacting us at email@example.com.
3. Use of data
Each user is given an option to accept, or refuse to be contacted by recruitment agencies or advertisers. You may decide not to be contacted by any of them by indicating it in your profile and we will without undue delays notify the respective recruitment agencies, and/ or advertisers and ask them not to contact you, unless you decide otherwise. We cannot guarantee that the recruitment agencies or advertisers immediately, after such a notification, withdraw from contacting you. In order to take necessary steps for protection of your privacy, you shall inform us about any practice of the recruitment agencies, or advertiser which will be in contradiction with your choice made in your profile.
