Protecting your privacy

Protecting your privacy and your personal information is an important aspect of the way we create, organise and publish on DiVine.

Recording personal information

DiVine will only record an individual's email address and/or contact details if they send our site a message or use one of the site's submission forms. The information is collected for the purpose of responding to the matters raised in an individual's electronic correspondence. We will only collect personal information that is necessary to perform these functions.

We will only use personal information provided for the purposes for which it was collected.

Disclosure of personal information

We will not disclose your personal information to a third party without your consent. The only exception is if the law says that we have to. For example, we might need to report a crime may have been committed. Another example is concern over someone’s health and safety.

You should also tell them what types of third parties DiVine might provide the information to. You should also tell them the relevant purposes that DiVine and such third parties will use it for, and how they can access it.
