Collection of Your Personal Information
On the Platform, we ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address, or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such as your postal or ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. If you choose to make a purchase or sign up for a paid subscription service, we will ask for additional information, such as your credit card number and billing address, which is used to create a billing account. In order to access some Services, you will be asked to sign in with an e-mail address and password, which we refer to as your login credentials. As part of creating your credentials, you may also be requested to provide questions and secret answers, which we use to help verify your identity and assist in resetting your password, as well as an alternate e-mail address. Some Services may require added security, and in these cases, you may be asked to create an additional security key. We may collect information about your interaction with the Platform. For example, we may use website analytics tools on our site to retrieve information from your browser, including the site you came from, the search engine(s) and the keywords you used to find our site, the pages you view within our site, your browser add-ons, and your browser’s width and height. We may also use technologies, such as cookies and web beacons (described below), to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Platform. Additionally, we collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring web site addresses. When you receive newsletters or promotional e-mail from SPW, we may use web beacons (described below), customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or other information. In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with SPW, information collected through one SPW service may be combined with information obtained through other SPW services. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies that enable us to derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your geographic area.
Use of Your Personal Information
SPW collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve its sites and services. These uses may include (a) providing you with more effective customer service; (b) making the Platform easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; (c) performing research and analysis aimed at improving the Platform; and (d) displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences. We may also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. Some Services may send periodic member letters that are considered part of the Service. We may also occasionally send you product surveys or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from SPW and its affiliates. Personal information collected on SPW sites and services may be stored and processed in Belgium or any other country in which SPW or its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers maintain facilities. SPW abides by the framework regarding the collection, use, and retention of data, as set forth by the European Union and by Maltese law.

Accessing Your Personal Information
If desired you may access your personal information by contacting us on the coordinates noted below. Upon your request we shall promptly correct any erroneous or omitted data regarding your personal information.
You can stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from SPW sites and services by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive. You may also have the option of proactively making choices about the receipt of promotional e-mail, telephone calls, and postal mail from particular SPW sites or services.
Security of Your Personal Information
SPW is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.

Use of Web Beacons
SPW Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes called single-pixel gifs – that may be used to assist in delivering cookies on our sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. SPW may also employ Web beacons from third parties in order to help us compile aggregated statistics regarding the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or other operations of our sites. We prohibit Web beacons on our sites from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information. Finally, we may work with other companies that advertise on SPW sites to place Web beacons on their sites in order to allow us to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on a SPW site results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser’s site.
Controlling Unsolicited E-mail (“Spam”)
SPW is concerned about controlling unsolicited commercial e-mail, or “spam”. SPW has a strict Anti-Spam Policy. SPW will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber lists to third parties. While SPW continues to actively review and implement new technology, such as expanded filtering features, there is no currently available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited e-mail. Using junk e-mail tools and being cautious about the sharing of your e-mail address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited e-mail you receive. Changes to This Privacy Statement We will occasionally update this privacy statement to reflect changes in our services and customer feedback. When we post changes to this Statement, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this statement. If there are material changes to this statement or in how SPW will use your personal information, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing the change or by directly sending you a notification. We encourage you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how SPW is protecting your information.
