Privacy Policy

1. GENERAL PRINCIPLES

Protecting your privacy is very important to us. We have accordingly developed

this Privacy Policy to protect your personal information and keep it confidential.

We endeavor to comply with laws of other countries but cannot and do not warrant

that we do. We do everything we reasonably can to protect your rights of privacy

on systems and the Website controlled by us, but we are not liable for any

unauthorized or unlawful disclosures of your personal and confidential information

made by third parties who are not subject to our control, for example advertisers

and websites that have links to our Website. You should take note that the

information and privacy practices of our business partners, advertisers, sponsors

or other sites to which we provide hyperlinks, may be different from ours. Our

privacy policy is subject to change at any time without notice. To make sure you

are aware of any changes, please review this policy periodically.

We categorise information about you (collectively referred to as “Personal

Service, which may include some or all of the following: – Information about your

personal identity such as gender, marital status, age, preferences, likes and

dislikes etc.; – Your financial information such as your banking details and any

information relating to your income and lifestyle levels; and – Your contact details

such as your physical addresses, postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers

any third party or otherwise trade on it.

We will only disclose your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy

collate and use such information for their own purposes. You should accordingly

be careful when deciding to share any of your Personal Information in such public

expressly stated otherwise. We are not liable to you or any third party for any

damages that you or any third party may suffer howsoever arising from your

disclosure of Personal Information in any public environment. You accordingly

disclose information in a public environment at your own risk.
