In accordance with European Union guidelines, registrants may decline to provide the information requested. They should be advised, however, that Red Circle may be unable to deliver its services unless at least the information necessary to enable fulfillment of the service, security and identification purposes is provided.

What further information does Red Circle track, and why?

In order to offer the best possible service to users, Red Circle tracks the patterns of usage of pages on the site. This enables us to identify the most popular material and services.

Red Circle may use the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to those who have previously visited our site.

Statistical demographic information about Red Circle usage may be supplied to advertisers. Red Circle may target online advertising to specific users on the basis of this demographic information, or on the basis of their past behavior on the site, but information about an individual user will not be passed on to an advertiser without the user’s express consent.
