What data do we collect from you?
We receive information about you when you register for the site, submit content (articles, comments, videos, evidence, vents, messages or any other interaction on the site through your profile or otherwise) as well as from third party websites and related services. By signing-up to Speaker’s Chair and agreeing to our terms and conditions, you consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation and storage of this data.
Please note that your data will never be given to a third party at any time unless you expressly permit us doing so.
By creating an account with Speaker’s Chair you provide a range of information, some personal such as your name and email address, and other wider information including interests and political views. In creating an account you consent to our using that information to identify you, both as Speaker’s Chair and to other users on the site. If you sign-up to the site using Facebook or Twitter you are giving us permission to access data via those platforms, so if you would rather that was not the case do not sign-up in that way.
Speaker’s Chair may send you information using the contact information you provide where relevant, but note this will only be if we think it is important to you. As stated above, we will never, ever, give any of your personal data to a third party without your prior consent.
Any content you submit to the site – such as articles, comments, vents, shares, group posts, and any other activity on Speaker’s Chair that require you to enter data or content of any kind – may be kept by us indefinitely and held on the site, even in the event you terminate your Speaker’s Chair account. You may, of course, publish content submitted to Speaker’s Chair on your own personal website elsewhere. You do, however, give us the right to share and disclose such content to third parties, but only content that is publically viewable on the site.
Please use your own precaution and common sense when submitting content to the site. Remember that when you do, you are broadcasting it for anyone and everyone to see in the public domain. Speaker’s Chair cannot be held liable for any information you put in the public domain yourself – that is your own responsibility.
Log files and cookies:
Like many other websites, Speaker’s Chair makes use of log files and cookies. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information, are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
Is my information safe?
We treat your personal data very carefully and have stringent security measures in place to protect your data. Your own personal account is password protected, as set by you on sign-up, for your own security. It is your responsibility, and not that of Speaker’s Chair, to prevent unauthorised access to your account and the personal information held therein.
It is good practice to change your password on a regular basis as a result and ensuring your personal computer is also password protected to limit access. We also recommend logging-out when you have finished using the site.
Your information is stored carefully and securely using standard industry techniques. We do not, however, take responsibility for your data in the event we are hacked. Every possible step is taken to prevent such a circumstance, however. We also cannot take responsibility for the security of your personal information when it is transmitted to us from a third party.
What if Speaker’s Chair closes?
