- What information we collect about you and how we use this information
1.1 Account and Profile Information
In order to use this forum, such as for searching and viewing member profiles, forums, topics and posts, you need to create an account. To create an account, we need you to supply us with some personal data so that we can provide our services to you. This includes a display name (for example, “John Doe”) and a username (for example, john_Newcastle), a password, and an email address. After the registration your account display name and username are the same.
Once you have registered and created an account, the following information will be visible to all embark2 members:
- Member’s name
- Biography (About Me)
- Location (Country)
Additionally, whilst using the embark2 forum the following information may be collected (this will not be public):
- Internet Protocol (IP) address
- Geographical location
- Browser type and version
- Operating system
- Referral source
You are responsible for your topics, posts and other information you provide through our services, and you should think carefully about what you post, especially as it is likely to be sensitive information.
1.2 Contact Information
We use your contact information, such as your email address, to authenticate your account and keep it – and our services – secure, and to help prevent spam, fraud, and abuse. We also use contact information to enable certain account features for example, for login verification, reset password. You can also unsubscribe from any email notifications.
If you email us, we will keep the content of your message, your email address, and your contact information to respond to your request.
1.3 Private Messaging
One of the benefits of our embark2 website is that you can use private messaging within the forum but personal email addresses will not be displayed. It is often the case that members who holiday together share email addresses but we do not encourage the sharing of email addresses between members who are not known to each other.
1.5 Log Data
We receive information when you view content on or otherwise interact with our community, which we refer to as “Log Data,” even if you have not created an account. For example, when you visit our website interact with our email notifications, we may receive information about you. This Log Data includes information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms, and cookie information. We use Log Data to operate our services and ensure their secure, reliable, and robust performance.

- How to access and control your information
3.1 Accessing or Rectifying Your Personal Data
You have the right to request a copy of your information, to object to our use of your information. If you have registered an account on our website, we provide you with tools and account settings to access, correct, delete, or modify the personal data you provided to us and associated with your account. You can request for downloading your account information, including your created content. You also can request correction, deletion, or modification of your personal data.
Your request and choices may be limited in certain cases: for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal information about another person, or if you ask to delete information which we or your administrator are permitted by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep. Where you have asked us to share data with third parties, for example, by installing third-party apps, you will need to contact those third-party service providers directly to have your information deleted or otherwise restricted.
3.2 Deletion of Your Personal Data
You can request for your account deletion. This will include personal data, profile data, created content, logs, etc… Cookies should be deleted from your side. Almost all browsers have an option to delete cookies.
3.3 Restrict Processing
3.3.1 Request that we stop using your information: In some cases, you may ask us to stop accessing, storing, using and otherwise processing your information where you believe we don’t have the appropriate rights to do so. For example, if you believe a embark2 account was created for you without your permission or you are no longer an active user, you can request that we delete your account by contacting us. Where you gave us consent to use your information for a limited purpose, you can contact us to withdraw that consent, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place at the time.
- How we store and secure information we collect
We use data hosting service providers to host the information we collect, and we use technical measures to secure your data. While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others.
