One of our paramount concerns here at Technology Dreamer is developing the trust of our visitors, readers, and tech amateurs everywhere. One of the ways by which we do this is through careful consideration of their privacy. According to the Data Protection Act of 1998, we are fully obliged to maintain the full protection of your personal as well as non-personal data. How do we do this? First of all, we work only on a need-to-know principle, meaning that we only ever ask for data which is necessary.
1. Personal Information Collected
When a visitor of our website applies for account registration, when he or she wants to post a comment, subscribe to the newsletter, or leave us a message via our contact form, we are required to collect information about that specific user, be it personal or non-personal. As was said, the first thing that is required of users before they are allowed to comment is their name and email address. This is so that we can aptly respond to their requests in due time.
Note that information given by you to use will never be used for publicity nor for any advertising purposes. If the need arises, we will always ask the respective person for their permission to do so.
That being noted, the only reasons for which we may possibly use your information are:
- To optimize user experience on our website through enhancing user experience based on data.
- To update the UI of TechnologyDreamer.com to better fit the specific needs of our readers.
- To give answers to all of your questions, queries, or messages about everything related to us.
- To provide frequent user-oriented updates with tech-related news, reviews, and guides.
