Accessing Your Personal Information

Following registration as a Member, you may be able to review and change some of the information you submitted during registration, including your contact information.

You must promptly update your personal information if it changes. This may be done through your account settings or by contacting us.

You can request access to any personal information we hold about you at any time by emailing us. There may be cases where we cannot grant you access to the personal information we hold. For example, where granting access to such information would interfere with the privacy of others or would result in a breach of confidentiality. In such event, we will provide written reasons for any refusal.

You have the right to ask us not to use your personal information for marketing purposes. You can exercise your right by unsubscribing to our mailing list when you receive marketing material from us.


Our Services may contain links to other websites operated by third parties. We make no representations or warranties in relation to the privacy practices of any third party website and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for those websites or their policies. You should check the policies of third party websites before submitting any personal information to them.


We take reasonable steps to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. For example, we store your information on secure servers and we use Secure Sockets Layering, an industry-standard protocol for encrypting certain personal information that you send to us through the registration and sign up process.

However, we remind you that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet and that no security system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot provide any guarantee of the security of your information, nor can we assume liability for improper access to it. We also cannot guarantee that the information you supply to us will not be intercepted during its transmission. By using our Services and providing personal information to us through any means, you agree that any information which you transmit to us is done so at your own risk. You also agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of our Services.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password which grants you access to certain parts of our Services. We request you to not share your password with anyone and you should restrict access to your Device/s through which you access our Services. When possible, Users on public or shared devices should log out at the end of each visit.

If you purchase a gift subscription for another person, we will store their name and email address for the purpose of sending them your gift subscription and for tracking the progress of its redemption.

We rely on parents and guardians to ensure that children only use our Services if they understand our Agreement.

Transfer of Information

By using our Services you acknowledge and agree to the transfer of your personal information outside your country of residence to any country where we have employees, affiliates, or engage with service providers and other third parties. We take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information will continue to be protected by overseas parties.
