Personal Information

Personal information refers to any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to a name, email address, home, postal or other physical address, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interest, or any other information that may be needed to fulfil a service request.

Collection

We request and collect some personal information whenever you request some types of information and or choose to register or subscribe to any of our services; whenever you contact us and or submit feedback on any third party website licensed to use the StarDustAtkeson Identity™, or whenever you choose to submit your personal information to StarDustAtkeson for any reason.

We only ever request and collect personal information for the purpose of providing a service to you and or as part of our ongoing research into issues that are of interest and concern to you and all of our stakeholders. All contributions of feedback, personal opinions, suggestions, anecdotes and or accounts of your experiences, which you choose to submit to us, either directly or via any collection point that is licensed to use the StarDustAtkeson Identity™ represents a contribution to our research. You make this contribution on a quid quo pro basis, which is to say you acknowledge that the purpose for which the information is being collected is likely to benefit you, either directly or indirectly. We may request personal information and use this to validate your contribution. However, neither the fact that you have participated in our research, nor any personal information that may be used to identify you is ever passed to any third party without your express permission to do so.

For security purposes we log your IP (internet protocol) address – that is the Internet address of your computer. Your personal information may be retained by StarDustAtkeson to verify compliance with any of these.
