What we use this information for
We use the information held about you in the following ways:
To help us to understand your needs and improve the relevance of the services we offer you as an individual

In terms of the personal information you submit when becoming a user or an advertiser of cityvisitor.co.uk, this is held with the utmost commitment to your privacy.
The information is stored on a secure webserver and in accordance with the UK Data Protection Act 1998, we have added security measures in place to ensure that your personal information has adequate protection.

However SSL has been designed to work with most popular browsers and you are advised to use an up to date version of your browser to take advantage of this added security.
We believe that your privacy is important and have security in place to protect it. However if this security is breeched we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
