Privacy Policy

Who we are

We are ‘101Networks’ and our company is Fusion101 Ltd, and despite the cool ‘team photo’ on the homepage it’s actually just me here (Edward – I have to have goals right!:) Anyway – this privacy policy applies to all ‘101’ sites and services (see full list at bottom of page). The company and contact information can be found at the bottom of this page under Contact Us.

Introduction

Companies spend fortunes on lawyers to bury their practices in terms and conditions to turn members of their ‘free’ sites into commodities. I can’t afford a lawyer and don’t have the brains or time to be tricky (it’s taken me (a non-techie) weeks to try and understand privacy law after the Facebook fiasco and their 2000 expert employees couldn’t even be bothered to… whatever… and little fish like me have to now spend $$$ to prove we are not, and never have taken advantage of our members). At 101 I try to be WYSIWG – what you see is what you get. I’m only interested in helping people and my motto is people before profit and really keeping your stuff secure – not turning you into a commodity or making merchandise of men as the Bible puts it. If you have any questions, or have a legal background and spot something I missed, email me using contact link at the bottom of any site. Please refer from this page from time to time to stay up to date on our privacy. I will endeavour to make changes to this policy visible on our site home-pages.

In our first 18 years we sent ONE ‘marketing’ email to our member database regarding 1 free social event!

Since 2000 I’ve never had a proper means to email members, but will have one at some point (not to spam you but inform you of genuinely useful things and events). This should give you an idea of how keen (I am not) to spam you:)

What personal data we collect and why

General

Most of our sites are non-membership and collect little or no personal data, but cookies may collect a small amount of non-personal data so the site works for you (eg a cookie remembers if you accepted cookies or not, or what navigation you see if you are logged in:). Some sites collect a small amount of non-personal data so we understand traffic like search terms used to find our pages. Where we have ads, some information is collected by ad technology providers (via Google Adsense) for ad frequency capping, aggregated ad reporting and to combat fraud/abuse. 101 does not have access to data collected by ad technology providers. 101 does not track your web history or ‘habits’ and has no interest to do so. When one of our sites needs cookies to function you can say OK or Reject on on the homepage.

If you join our membership sites (Fusion101 / 101ChristianSingles / 101ChristianSocialNetworks)

When you join or contact us you may be asked to enter any of the following;

  • First and/or last name. (via account/profile creation forms, Contact forms, New client form, Email signup forms, comment form, chat contact form, Feedback/testimonial form.)

  • Referral information such as website address, company, etc. (via Google Analytics, Email signup forms.)

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Data you enter into contact forms may be stored – like name and email address so we can respond back.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Some of our sites and services may collect non-personalised data so we can see how members and surfers use our sites and services and which ads are successful.

Who we share your data with

We do not share identifiable data that you enter (like name / email / likes / dislikes / profile description etc) with any third parties. We may only share your data within 101Networks sites and services (Fusion101.com/.co.uk / 101ChristianSingles / 101ChristianNetworks/101Networks / 101ChristianSocialNetwork.com) for purposes of single-sign (login simplicity) or to display relevant information to other members of our network like name or username on forums or other site and service features. We will only do this where we feel it is not a risk to your privacy and in your interest to connect with other people (presumably the reason you signed up to our social networks and sites).

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile until they request it is deleted. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service for swear words, profanity, money demands and other forms of spam or misuse to protect our members.

Your contact information

This is only visible to other members if you add it to your profile. We have taken reasonable steps to make sure by default any info you enter on this site only seen by members of this site (i.e not casual surfer and non-members). In any case you can specify who sees your info using the privacy controls in your Profile editor.

Google analytics may be used on some sites. Please assume it’s used on all (as I can’t remember which if any it’s on). See their terms of service here; Google analytics terms
