What Information Does The High Tech Society Collect?
The High Tech Society collects both personal and non-personal data.
Personal Data – We collect personal data such as email and IP addresses, your name, and other contact details when you voluntarily give it to us. This could be signing up for our newsletter, leaving a comment on one of our blog posts, liking or following one of our social pages, or sending us an email. When you do any of these things, you are voluntarily sharing your personal information. We do not use any of this data in any way except for how you intended us to use it when you sent it. So, if you send us an email, the only thing we will do with your data is reply to you. Or if you leave us a comment, we will not use your data in any way. We believe that your personal information is yours so we do not share it, or benefit in any way from it.
