The information we collect

Personal data: When you first sign-up for UKCircle.com, we ask for your user name/password and that is all you need to provide in order to join. We don’t force you to provide your e-mail address; it is optional, as is any other personal information we may ask you for. In addition we usually also capture your IP address. The amount and type of information that UKCircle.com gathers depends on the nature of your interaction.

These contributions are publicly viewable on UKCircle.com, along with your user name. This information may be collected by search engines and republished elsewhere on the Web. We will retain your personal data for as long as is permitted for legal, regulatory, spam and fraud prevention purposes.

Cookies: When your web browser accesses a specific web site such as ours, cookies (a type of small text file) may, depending on your browser settings, be automatically stored on your computer's hard drive.

Editing your Account and mailing settings

We like to keep in touch with our Account Holders so after you have signed up to UKCircle.com we'll send you information about services provided by us.
