Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to the RCEP web site, and all related websites (each a "Site") owned by RCEP and its affiliated and subsidiary RCEP web sites. RCEP wants to give you the most exciting Internet experience possible. Because your privacy is important to us, RCEP provides this notice explaining what kinds of information we collect online and how we use it, as well as the choices you can make regarding the information collected.

You can participate in many features on the Site without providing any personally identifiable information. By (1) using this Site, (2) supplying any personal information via the Site, and/or (3) supplying any personal information to RCEP in response to any email or other form of communication from RCEP that references this Privacy Policy, you acknowledge your agreement with this Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE TERMS STATED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS SITE.

Sections of this Site may be subject to additional privacy terms and you will be notified of this when using the applicable sections of the Site. You should carefully review these additional privacy terms before using those sections; such additional privacy terms will not replace or change this Privacy Policy, except when expressly stated otherwise. We collect information, including personal information, for a variety of business reasons, including, for example: (i) establishing and maintaining relations and/or contact with customers and potential customers; (ii) understanding your needs and preferences; (iii) developing, enhancing, marketing, promoting and/or providing goods and/or services to meet your needs or expectations, (iv) allowing you to participate in contests, sweepstakes and other promotions; (v) fulfilling legal and/or regulatory requirements; and (vi) for such additional purposes as may be identified to you from time to time (each, a "Purpose").

At certain parts of the Site, only persons who provide us with the requested personal information will be able to participate in the activities and offerings at that part of the Site. RCEP will not keep personally identifiable information collected, except with verifiable parent or guardian consent.

You may also be able to submit personal information at the Site about other people. For example, you might submit a person's name and e-mail address to send an electronic greeting card or film clip, or if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you might submit the recipient's name and address. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected about other people at these pages include: recipient's name, street address, e-mail address, and telephone number. RCEP will not use such personal information about other people unless that other person has consented to such use.

We also collect certain anonymous or non-personally identifiable information when you visit some of our Site pages, such as the Site pages that you visited, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape or Internet Explorer), the level of encryption that your web browser supports, the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows 7 or Mac OS), the name of your Internet service provider (e.g., Etisalat, Du), the query that you entered into a search engine via a Site or which led you to the Site, and any other "click stream" data.

We may also use this information in the aggregate to analyze how the Site is used and to offer you products, services, promotions,.

By allowing you to send e-mail to us, we are not attempting to collect any personal information about you. Except as otherwise explained in this Privacy Policy, we will only use any personal information (such as name and e-mail address) contained in your e-mail to us to respond to your specific inquiry or comments in the e-mail.

Cookies and Web Beacons
Cookies allow websites to "remember" a user's activities on a website as well as a user's visits to a site. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer by a web page server. At RCEP's Sites, cookies are used to determine the number of unique visitors over a given period. In addition, we sometimes use cookies to show us how people found the Site, which pages they visited and how long they stayed. We may also use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and to save your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our Sites. You can of course, disable cookies on your computer by indicating this in the preferences or options menus in your browser.

We may also use "web beacons" through a third party content server that monitors your use of our Sites. Web beacons (or web bugs) are small strings of code that provide a method for delivering a graphic image on a web page for the purpose of transferring data, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the web beacon appears, the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of the page on which the web beacon appears, the time the page containing the web beacon was viewed, the types of browsers that fetched the web beacon and the identification number of any cookie on the computer previously placed by that server. When corresponding with you via HTML capable e-mail, web beacons let us know whether you received and opened our e-mail.

On their own, cookies or web beacons do not contain or reveal any personally identifiable information. However, if you choose to furnish the Site with personally identifiable information, this information can be linked to the data stored in the cookies/web beacons.

By accepting this Privacy Policy, you specifically agree to our use of cookies and web beacons as described herein. You may adjust your browser to reject cookies from us or from any other web site. Additionally, by setting your web browser to display HTML e-mails as text only, you may be able to prevent the use of some web beacons. Please consult the "Help" section of your browser for more information. However, certain areas of our Sites can only be accessed in conjunction with cookies or similar devices and you should be aware that disabling cookies or similar devices might prevent you from accessing some of our Site content.

Personal information that you provide to RCEP will only be used with your consent for the Purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for programs and services, to respond to your inquiries about our programs or services or to offer you information about other programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you.

We also use this information to communicate with you, such as to fulfill a request by you for an online newsletter, or to contact you about your registration and/or account with us.

We use the information that you provide about others to enable us to offer programs or services to them or to offer them information about other or new products, programs or services. The information we collect in connection with our online forums and communities is used to provide an interactive experience. We use this information to facilitate participation in these online forums and communities and, from time to time, to offer you products, programs or services or to offer you information about other or new products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you. If you choose to submit content for publication (e.g., a photograph sent to "Xpress Your Style"), we may publish your screen name or your first name and last initial and other information you have provided to us, such as the city or state where you are located. We use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our Site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze Site usage, as well as to offer you products, programs or services or to offer you information about other or new products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you.

RCEP will only disclose personally identifiable information to third parties with your consent or in the limited instances set forth in this Privacy Policy. Your personally identifiable information may sometimes be shared with other RCEP affiliates and subsidiaries, who will be bound by the same terms set out in this Privacy Policy. In addition, in the course of daily operations, authorized RCEP employees may be provided with access to personally identifiable information. Any use of such personally identifiable information by RCEP employees will be in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Your personally identifiable information may be disclosed in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, imminent danger to life or property that might be avoided or minimized by disclosure of such information, or situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Use, or as may be otherwise required by law. In addition, we may transfer information about you to an acquiring or merging party, if RCEP or a portion of its business is acquired by or merged with another company.

From time to time, RCEP may provide personally identifiable information to agents and contractors of RCEP who are performing services for RCEP. Such third parties are required to protect this personally identifiable information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for RCEP.

If we intend to share personally identifiable information about you to companies that may want to market products or services to you (e.g., other marketers, magazine publishers, retailers, participatory databases), we will ask for your permission at the relevant Site where we request such information. If at some point you grant us permission to transfer your information for these purposes and later decide that you no longer want us to do so, simply send us an email via the Customer Service Form and we'll change your preferences accordingly.

We may occasionally combine information we receive online with outside records to enhance our ability to market to you those products or services that may be of interest to you. If you register with our Site, we provide you with an opportunity to express your preferences with respect to receiving details about other products and services from RCEP, affiliated businesses and selected third parties, as well as information about other or new products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you, whether from RCEP or from affiliated businesses and selected third parties (such as licensees). If you ever decide in the future that you would like to update these preferences, you may do so by sending us an email via the Customer Service Form and we'll change your preferences accordingly.

We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt-out, as described more fully below.

RCEP will only collect personal information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve our legitimate purposes, and we will take appropriate steps to safeguard the security and integrity of any information you provide to us. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use the information we collect online. We periodically review these security practices and adopt new technologies and procedures in order to protect your personal information. Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot, however, absolutely ensure that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

If you have provided us with any personal information and do not want RCEP to retain this information or wish to update or correct it, you can notify us at any time by sending us an e-mail via the Customer Service Form and we will remove this information from our database or correct it as directed by you. You may also update your information yourself in certain portions of the Site, through use of the user name and password that you have chosen. RCEP will respond to customer requests for the release of personal information about such customer's account only to the email address on file with RCEP. It is your responsibility to maintain the security and integrity of that email address.
