Privacy Policy

South is committed to protecting your privacy online. Our policy is simple: we will not capture your information, use it or share with others without your prior agreement. There are three main principles underpinning our policy:

  • South does not capture or store personally-identifying information (such as your email address, name, title, or postal address) without your knowledge when you visit our site. You are always able to choose to provide such information to us.
  • We respect your email privacy. We will only send you mailings from South if you have agreed to this.
  • We do not pass on your details (including your email address) to other organisations or individuals without your prior consent.

What data is being collected and how?

The only time we capture your personal details is when you submit your information to the south mates sign up form. We will collect some basic information from you. This will include your email address, your name, postcode and age range. We also ask some further, voluntary questions so we can gain a clearer understanding of our south mates.

We collect data listing which of our pages are most frequently visited and by which types of users. The site automatically monitors IP addresses (the domain from which you access the internet) and which pages have been accessed when. This information is not linked to any personal data, so browsing is anonymous.

How will my information be used?

By entering your information to the south mates sign up form, you are agreeing to be sent south’s email newsletter. You will not receive other mailings from us unless you agree to this. You are free to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time.

What if you change your policy in future?

Any changes to our policy will be posted on the south website, however, in any case policy changes will not affect your rights under the Data Protection Act.
