How we may use your information in specific products or services

Message boards and other public forums

Our websites may provide message boards and other user generated content facilities. Anything that you share will become public information.

"Email a friend" and "share this article"

Before you use "email a friend" or "share this article" buttons please make sure that anyone you wish to email or share with are happy for this to occur and expect to receive the email or article.

Location based services

Where we provide services that utilise your device’s location, such as local weather or news, your location will be determined either from a lookup of your IP address in a “GeoIP” database which lists information provided by your ISP (usually your closest town or borough) or your precise location directly from the device (such as through GPS or Wifi on mobile devices) where you have granted permission for us to access this location information. If you have given us permission to use your location, we may use it for marketing and advertising purposes.

Push and in-app notifications on apps

Where you install one of our apps on your mobile device, this may use push notifications or in-app notifications. These notifications are used for a variety of reasons, for example push notifications may be used to trigger an automatic download of new content (such as a new edition) or to send you an update on new "editorial", or breaking news message. Please see the app download or install page for each app for more information on how it uses notifications. Within the app, you may be able to select to receive only certain types of notifications.

How we may share your information

We may share personal information about you to third parties, where you have given us permission or where the third party can confirm that they have your permission for us to do this.
We may also provide third parties with certain aggregate statistical data about our customers’ use of our websites and apps, which may include demographic data such as age range and/or geographic location of groups of our customers. This aggregate data does not include contact details (such as the customer’s name or postal address).

Safeguards and security for your information

We have measures in place to protect the security of your personal information from unauthorised access or use, such as by using encryption technology.

Your choices

Please note that our website, apps and other products and services may not work correctly (or at all) if you change your preferences.

Use of your location

You can choose whether to provide us with your precise location from your device through your browser’s "Help" menu, or through the "Location" or "Location Services" in the Settings on your mobile device.

Use of push notifications

You will be prompted to choose whether to receive push notifications the first time you run each app, and you can update your preferences at any time through Settings on your device.
