By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable IBcity.info and its service providers to provide you with the services you select.

Information on visitors


During the course of any visit to www.ibcity.info the pages you see, along with something called a cookie, are downloaded to your computer (see point 3 for more on this). Most, if not all, websites do this, because cookies allow the website publisher to do useful things like find out whether the computer (and probably its user) has visited the site before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.
Any information that is supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better service and assists us to analyse the profile of our visitors.


What is a cookie?


When you enter a site your computer will automatically be issued with a cookie. Cookies are text files that identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their site in order to track traffic flows.
Cookies themselves only record those areas of the site that have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user.


Use and storage of your personal information


When you supply any personal information to www.ibcity.info we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it (see the notices on particular web pages that let you know why we are requesting the information) and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else. In general, any information you provide via www.ibcity.info will only be used within IBcity.info and our service providers. It will never be supplied to anyone outside IBcity.info without your consent, unless we are obliged or permitted by law to disclose it.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met.

Access to your personal information


You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that IBcity.info holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected.


Users 16 and under


If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission beforehand whenever you provide personal information to www.ibcity.info. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
