Privacy Policy

RAIL - Back On Track is strongly committed to protecting your privacy while interacting with our content, and services. We want to provide a safe and secure environment for you.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to tell you what kind of information we may gather about you when you visit our site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct this information. Our policy allows you to choose what kind and how much information you provide to us and to control how we use whatever information you give us. Our goal is to provide you with a satisfying experience while allowing you to control your privacy and to give you a means to voice any questions or concerns you may have.

This policy applies only to RAIL - Back On Track  and not to other companies' or organisations' websites to which RAIL - Back On Track is linked.

Collection of information

Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not. It is necessary to have an active email address for registration on the RAIL - Back On Track message board (forums).

RAIL - Back On Track collects two types of information. The first type is anonymous information. For instance, we may collect information to tell us that twentyfive people visit this Privacy Policy today, but we do not know their names, their address or their date of birth - they are 'anonymous' to us. This is simple web site traffic analysis. We monitor browser types of users, pages visited, length of visits and so forth so that we may improve our services. IP addresses of all users/posts are recorded as well.

The second type of information that RAIL - Back On Track collects is personal information. RAIL - Back On Track will collect personal information that lets us know the specifics of who you are such as your name, and email address when you provide it to us. With this information, RAIL - Back On Track can provide a variety of personalised and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users. We hope that you will find it beneficial to provide individually identifiable information about yourself to us because it will make our services more valuable to you ie. register on the message board.

How much of your personal information that you choose to disclose to RAIL - Back On Track is completely up to you. The only way we know something about you personally is if you provide it to us.

Use of anonymous information

RAIL - Back On Track automatically gathers anonymous information to monitor the use of RAIL - Back On Track web site and forums, like the numbers and frequency of visitors to RAIL - Back On Track and its areas.

RAIL - Back On Track may publish or provide this aggregate data to other people.
