By using The Gulf Talk website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
The Gulf Talk collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by The Gulf Talk. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by The Gulf Talk for the operation of the service, to maintain the quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of “The Gulf Talk” Web site.
Use of your Personal Information
“The Gulf Talk” collects and uses your personal information to operate the “The Gulf Talk” Web site and deliver the services you have requested. The Gulf Talk also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from The Gulf Talk and its affiliates. The Gulf Talk may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered. The Gulf Talk does not sell, rent or lease its visitor lists to third parties.
The Gulf Talk may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. The Gulf Talk keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within The Gulf Talk, in order to determine what The Gulf Talk services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within The Gulf Talk to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
The Gulf Talk Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize The Gulf Talk pages or services, a cookie helps The Gulf Talk to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of “The Gulf Talk” services or Web sites you visit.
Third Party Cookies
In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertiser may place or recognize a unique “cookie” on your browser.
They can choose to not receive these messages by using the “one-click” opt-out/ unsubscribe option available at the bottom of every newsletter.
Security of your Personal Information
The Gulf Talk secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. The Gulf Talk secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
