Southern Ghost Society Privacy / Cookie Policy

The Southern Ghost Society is committed to protecting you and your family's personal information. We want our services to be safe and enjoyable environments for everyone. This page answers some important questions about how we collect, use and protect your personal details.

What information does the Southern Ghost Society collect about me?

When you interact with the Southern Ghost Society website we sometimes receive personal information about you.

Information is collected when you join our society as a member. The information on the registration page is for sole use by The Southern Ghost Society to manage and run our day to day interaction with our members. By agreeing to our terms and conditions on the registration page you agree to allow us to collect this personal information for our sole use.

Non-members who book places on our events will be asked to supply an email address, telephone contact number and the names of those attending. This information is collected to allow us to manage our booking system for events.

When contacting us via email we will receive your email address which will enable us to respond to your enquiry. This data is not stored on or within our website.

Privacy Policy

The Southern Ghost Society will make every possible efforts to protect the personal information we hold on our members or customers attending our events. The Southern Ghost Society will not make this information available to any third parties or registered members. We will not sell, pass on or make available your personal information for email or third party marketing. Your email account details will only be used to notify you of our proposed events and announcements.

The Southern Ghost Society currently uses PayPal for collection of payment for our events. All credit/debit card payments are conducted through Paypal’s secure server and we do not have access to or store your credit / debit card details on this site. Southern Ghost Society's website will not ask for your credit / debit card details directly.

Cookies - What are cookies?

Cookies are small files which are stored on a user's computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user. Alternatively the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.

How Secure are Cookies?

There is a lot of concern about privacy and security on the internet. Cookies do not in themselves present a threat to privacy, since they can only be used to store information that the user has volunteered or that the web server already has. Whilst it is possible that this information could be made available to specific third party websites, this is no worse than storing it in a central database.

Use of cookies on this website is minimal, browsers can automatically remember the username and password you set whilst setting up a Member account. These are stored by the browser as a cookie, and are not requested for storage by cookie by SGS. This is optional and no other data is stored in this cookie. A temporary cookie is created between booking and payment via PayPal. Once this transaction is complete the cookie is destroyed. This cookie stores the information passed to PayPal and is used to confirm that the payment for the booked event has been received.

Southern Ghost Society does not use any third party ad serving services to display content to our users. We therefore do not make use of any tracking cookies that may track your progress into, through and out of our site.

We do hope you enjoy interaction with our website and please rest assured your personal security on our website is our first priority.
