Our key privacy commitments to you are:

* Provide you with an access to correct, update or delete any personal information you may submit to us
Collection of Personal Information
Business Shaper may collect personal information which is specifically and voluntarily provided by the users while exploring the website. The type of information collected may include your name, contact details, web pages visited, documents accessed and internet address.
We do not collect any sensitive personal information such as criminal records, religious beliefs and financial details without your explicit consent to the collection and use of such information.
Use of Personal Information
This information is used to create a personal profile to customize our responses to your specific requests. This helps us better understand and meet your needs for information and services. Occasionally we may also use this information to conduct administrative tasks pertaining to the website.
Business Shaper may occasionally add email addresses of individuals who we get in touch with through business meetings and who we feel might be interested in receiving our relevant content. If you don't wish to receive Shaper Group communication, unsubscribe at any time automatically from the website, email or by contacting Business Shaper.
Shaper Group Web Sites
Like most web sites, when someone accesses Business Shaper's web site, log files are generated by the web server that show the IP address of the visitor, date, time, and pages visited. Business Shaper reviews information in our web site logs from time to time and the logs are periodically deleted. Information in web logs is used in the aggregate to generate statistics such as determining parts of our site which are the most popular.
Our site uses "cookies". A "cookie" is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while visiting our site. For instance, by setting a cookie our site, the user would not have to log in with a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site. Most commonly used browsers allow users to reject cookies, whilst still being able to explore our website. The only drawback to this is that the user will then have limited access to some areas of our website.
Disclosure of Information to Third Party
Business Shaper does not usually disclose your personal information to third parties without the express permission of the individual concerned. However we may need to occasionally disclose this information to our service providers with your implied consent. Business Shaper defines "implied consent" narrowly. One example is:
Information may also be disclosed as required by law or through your prior consent to Shaper Group alliance partners.
Security of Personal Information
Business Shaper does not and will not sell, rent or share our database or membership mailing list. The Officers may disclose information to third parties in accordance with your consent in order to process your information requests.
Business Shaper keeps information and mailing list subscriber details and web server logs on controlled facilities that are secured against unauthorised access. Proof of identity is required before information is released to any person.
E-mail should not generally be regarded as secure. If you wish to send confidential information to us by email, we encourage you to use encrypted email (which can be arranged through our Officers).
Updating Personal Information
We provide you with an access to correct, update or delete any personal information you may submit to us. This can usually be done by contacting Business Shaper.
This policy may be updated from time to time, but any changes will not reduce the privacy protection set out above and will not affect information previously collected, unless required by law or otherwise beyond Bsuienss Shaper's control, e.g. technological changes. Any such changes to this policy that adversely affect privacy protection of Business Shapers members or Business Shaper's other contacts will be advised by email.
