Your Privacy is Important to Us
We recognise that your personal information is important to you and share your concerns about how information is collected, used and shared. IHU is committed to safeguarding your personal information and will always handle your personal information securely and carefully.
This policy may change from time to time and, if it does, the up-to-date version will always be available on the iheartuni.com site. By continuing to use the our site you are agreeing to any updated versions.
Information We Collect
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, safer and customised experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customise our services to make your experience safer and easier. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for this purpose and to achieve this goal.
To fully use our services, you will need to register using our online registration form, where you will be required to provide us with your contact information and other personal information. You are also required to provide us with a Username.
The personal information we collect is in most cases supplied by you when you register or provide feedback to us.
- Student Number
- Phone number
- E-mail address
- Course Details
Our main purpose for collecting this data is to provide you with a better user experience and a more relevant and more useful service from www.iheartuni.com.
Sometimes, we may also need to ask you for further details to make sure you’re eligible for our competitions or to get in touch with you to tell you the good news if you’re a winner.
We use data collection devices such as “cookies” on certain pages of our Site. “Cookies” are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing customised services. We also offer certain features that are only available through the use of a “cookie”. We also use “cookies” to allow you to enter your password less frequently during a session. Cookies are stored on your hard drive, not on our Site. Most cookies are “session cookies,” meaning that they are automatically deleted at the end of a session. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on our Site and you may be required to reenter your password more frequently during a session.
If you choose to bid, buy or sell on our Site, we collect information about your bidding, buying and selling behaviour. We also collect other users’ comments about you in our feedback area.
If you choose to post messages or leave feedback for other users, we will collect and store such information that you disclose to us and which is necessary for us to achieve our primary goal described above.
If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Site, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.
Our Disclosure of Your Information
Advertisers. We aggregate (gather up data across all user accounts) personal information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to identify you personally. Certain information, such as your name, email address, password, credit card number, and bank account number, are never disclosed to advertisers.
IHU Community. Throughout the Site, you are identified by your Username. If you select your email address as your Username you will disclose your email address to other users and third parties. As a result, other users and third parties might send you unsolicited email and be able to personally identify all of your activities on the Site. Although our pages are coded with robot exclusion headers, others may attempt to automatically collect your email address from our Site. Even if your Username is not your email address, your Username can be used to identify you and your activities throughout the Site. Other people can see your bids, items that you have purchased in the past, your feedback rating and associated comments, your postings on the Site, and so on. We also provide a number of ways to allow other users to find more out about you and your Site activities, such as our feature that allows users to quickly see all of the items you are offering at the time. If you are involved in a transaction, we have a feature that allows other users to view your email address and obtain your contact information.
Legal Requests. IHU may lawfully disclose your personal information for law enforcement or regulatory purposes. IHU cooperates with law enforcement inquires and other third parties to enforce laws, intellectual property and other rights. We can (and you authorise us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other governmental officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, piracy or other activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability.
Your Use of Other Users’ Information
In order to facilitate interaction among all IHU community members, our service allows you limited access other users’ contact information. As a seller you have access to the Username, email address and other contact information of the buyer or winning bidder(s), and as a buyer or winning bidder you have access to the Username, email address and other contact information of the seller.
By entering into our User Agreement, you agree that, with respect to other users’ personal information that you obtain through the Site or through an IHU-related communication or IHU-facilitated transaction, IHU hereby grants to you a license to use such information only for:
1. IHU – related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages,
2. any other purpose that such user expressly opts into after adequate disclosure of the purpose(s).
In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this Section, can you disclose personal information about another user to any third party without our consent and the consent of such other user after adequate disclosure. Note that law enforcement personnel, Verified Rights Owner Programme participants, and other rights holders are given different rights with respect to information they access.
We and our users do not tolerate spam. Therefore, without limiting the foregoing, you are not licensed to add an IHU user, even a user who has purchased an item from you, to your mail list (email or physical mail) without their express consent after adequate disclosure.
Control of Your Password
Please note that we may email you for the following purposes:
- as part of the Service. For example, we send (or may send) emails to you in some of the following example circumstances:
- after Registration, notifying you of your account details;
- as reminder emails about the services we offer (particularly if you have not used them yet or not used them for a while);
- to send you information or Vouchers which you have asked for;
- as a newsletter;
- as promotional emails; and
- to offer related services to you from IHU
However, in terms of any marketing or promotional emails we may send, we will always give you the chance to opt-out (or unsubscribe) from them in the future.
We take security extremely seriously but as no system is 100% secure, we can’t completely guarantee the protection of your personal information, any more than any other organisation can. So we can’t accept any liability for the loss, theft or misuse of the personal information which you’ve registered on this website if there is a security breach.
Protecting the online privacy of children is especially important. If you are under 18 years old, please do not attempt to register with www.iheartuni.com and do not provide us with your name, contact details or any other information about yourself. If we reasonably believe a user to be under 18, we may need to remove their details and all User Content provided by them from our site and our records. To find out more, please read our Terms and Conditions.
Our site contains links to other websites. Obviously, we don’t have any control over them and take no responsibility for any information you give them. Other sites have different privacy and security policies, which we advise you to read.
