Privacy Policy

Collection of information

Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address or information about what you like and do not like. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not.

Dream Thoroughbreds collects two types of information. The first type is anonymous information. For instance, we may collect information to tell us that five thousand people visit this Privacy Policy today, but we do not know their names, where they live or their date of birth - they are 'anonymous' to us. Another example of Dream Thoroughbreds collecting anonymous information is when Dream Thoroughbreds audiences are invited to respond to surveys on the Dream Thoroughbreds website. The surveys may ask you for demographic information such as your age, gender and postcode. This information is collected for research purposes, is used in the aggregate (where possible), and remains anonymous. Many of the individuals who access our services are anonymous to us.

The second type of information that Dream Thoroughbreds collects is personal information. Dream Thoroughbreds will collect personal information that lets us know the specifics of who you are such as your name, email address, or postal address, when you provide it to us. With this information, Dream Thoroughbreds can provide a variety of personalised and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users. We hope that you will find it beneficial to provide individually identifiable information about yourself to us because it will make our services more valuable to you.

Sometimes, we may specifically ask for personal information about you when you sign up to use a service. Certain information may be required, such as your name, age, internet address or screen name, billing address, type of computer, credit card number, in order to provide that service or product to you. This information may also be used to inform you of additional products and services which may interest you. You can choose not to receive such information when you are undertaking product or service registration on our website. We may also ask about your interests, but it is your choice whether to respond.

How much of your personal information that you choose to disclose to Dream Thoroughbreds is completely up to you. The only way we know something about you personally is if you provide it to us, for example when you take part in a discussion forum or enter one of the competitions on our websites.

Use of anonymous information

Dream Thoroughbreds automatically gathers anonymous information to monitor the use of Dream Thoroughbreds like the numbers and frequency of visitors to Dream Thoroughbreds and its areas, very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use such data in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine how much our audiences use parts of the site, so we can improve Dream Thoroughbreds to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many users as possible. Dream Thoroughbreds may publish or provide this aggregate data to other people.

Use of personal information

Dream Thoroughbreds will only use the personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it. Dream Thoroughbreds will not use it for any other purpose without your consent.

Disclosure

There will be occasions where it will be necessary for the Dream Thoroughbreds to disclose your personal information to third parties. Dream Thoroughbreds may be required by law to disclose the information, or may be required to disclose your personal information to third parties to provide the service you have requested, for example, if you purchase products online from the Dream Thoroughbreds Shop, Dream Thoroughbreds will need to disclose your personal information to third parties in order to bill and deliver your products. However, the disclosure will only be made where it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which you disclosed your personal information. Otherwise than stated above, we do not disclose personal information that you may give us, such as your name, address, email address or telephone number, to any organisation or person outside of Dream Thoroughbreds unless you have authorised us to do so. For example, when you contribute to an online forum you may want to publish your name and email address.
