Your privacy is critically important to us. At Top Schools HK (TSHK) we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products/service, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Like most website operators, TSHK collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. TSHK’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how TSHK’s visitors use its website. From time to time, TSHK may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
TSHK also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our Website. TSHK only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
By joining our site, you are automatically added to our mailing list. We promise we will not publish, share, or sell your email address in any way. We hate spam just as much as you do and will not spam your email. We will only send you our regular newsletter, some invitations, greetings and occasional messages from third parties and partners. However, you will always have the option to opt-out of such email.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to TSHK’s website choose to interact with TSHK in ways that require TSHK to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that TSHK gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who register as free or premium members to provide a username and email address. Those who choose to may provide additional information, including family details. In each case, TSHK collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with TSHK. TSHK does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
TSHK may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, TSHK may monitor a user’s comments to help identify spam. TSHK may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, TSHK does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
