This data may or may not be sufficient to identify you.

Any additional data that you provide, e.g. in a web-form, may also be logged. This data may or may not be sufficient to identify you.

Any additional data that your web-browser automatically provides may also be logged. This will be the case, for example, if your browser has previously been requested to store data on your computer in 'cookies' and submits them each time you request a web-page within a particular domain (such as Joomlashack.com). This data may or may not be sufficient to identify you.

If you disclose personal data to MERITAGE ASSETS CORP. in conjunction with an identifier such as your name or your credit-card details, MERITAGE ASSETS CORP. will collect Your Data. Moreover, any data that becomes available to MERITAGE ASSETS CORP. through any of the means described in the preceding paragraphs may be able to be associated with that identifier, and hence become Your Data.

Subject to the qualifications immediately below, MERITAGE ASSETS CORP. undertakes to collect Your Data from you and not from other parties. This undertaking is qualified as follows:

  • where MERITAGE ASSETS CORP. reasonably considers that its capability to deliver quality services to you will be materially enhanced by gathering Your Data from other sources. This applies in particular to consumer profile data.

  • to do so only with your Consent; and
  • to declare to you what sources it uses, and under what circumstances.

MERITAGE ASSETS CORP. undertakes to use Your Data only if it has demonstrable relevance to the particular use to which it is being put.

MERITAGE ASSETS CORP. undertakes to use Your Data in such a manner as to take into account the possibility that it is not of sufficient quality for the purpose, e.g. because it is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, or out-of-context.

  • Your Data may be retained beyond the expiry of its purpose if that is required by law, such as a provision of a statute, or a court order such as a search warrant or subpoena, or a warning by a law enforcement agency that delivery of a court order is imminent.
