Our approach to privacy

Quezi is a rapidly evolving service operated by Uclue Ltd. We (Uclue Ltd) aim to collect sufficient information to run the service smoothly and efficiently in foreseen circumstances, and to be able to continue to operate the service in circumstances that are unforeseen.

What we emphatically do NOT do is to use data about you to make ill-gotten gains at your expense. So, for example, we won’t sell data about you to anyone for the purpose of spamming you.

Updates

This Privacy Policy may be revised by us from time to time. Substantive changes will normally be notified here 30 days before they take effect.

Status

This Privacy Policy is Version 2, and applies from 14 June 2009. Compared to the previous version, it adds more information about the Google DoubleClick DART cookie.

Information stored

We may store any information entered into the website by a user of the website, or supplied to us by those with whom we do business.

Information disclosed

We may supply information to those with whom we do business, but only for purposes in connection with the operation of the service.

We may supply information in response to a court order, or upon demand of the government when we believe that the government is legitimately entitled to make such a demand. For example, the taxation authorities are entitled to see certain information.

We may supply information at our discretion when we sincerely believe it is in the best interests of the data subject, or in the best interests of society as a whole, for us to do so. For example, we may supply information if we believe it might help avert a crime or prevent a suicide.

We may share aggregated non-personal information (such as service statistics) with anyone.

Cookies

Our website sends cookies to your browser, for example to help the login/logout process work smoothly. You are free to set your web browser to accept or reject these cookies.

Our website may include advertisements, scripts or content from other sites. Those other sites may cause web bugs or cookies to be sent to your browser to obtain information about your web browsing. Feel free to set your web browser to reject those cookies.

We currently (May 2009) use Google for our advertising, but this may change without notice.

DoubleClick DART cookie

Google, as a third party ad vendor, uses the DoubleClick DART cookie to serve ads based on your visits to this and other websites. You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

Webserver logs

We use the webserver logs for business purposes including combating spam and producing business statistics.

Countries

Our webserver and database are currently (May 2009) in the United Kingdom, but this may change without notice. We may send information to, or process it in, other countries.
