We also keep track of activity on our website via log files stored on our web servers. We collect information such as IP address, browser type and version, and pages you view.

Security and Privacy
We take every precaution to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information by using industry-recognised security safeguards such as firewalls, coupled with carefully developed security procedures to protect your information from loss, misuse or unauthorised alteration.
We will never share, sell, or rent your personal information to third parties for their promotional use. Occasionally, we enter into contracts with third parties so that they can assist us in servicing you (for example, providing customer service). The contracts prohibit them from using any of your personal information for their own purposes, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them. We may also disclose certain information to partners who introduced you to Nottingham Writers Club services. Lastly, we may disclose or report personal information in limited circumstances where we believe in good faith that disclosure is required under the law. For example, we may be required to disclose personal information to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities, to comply with a legal process such as court order, subpoena, search warrant, or law enforcement request.
