Privacy Policy

Welcome to HK IELTS Teacher!

Your privacy is critically important to me.

It is my policy at HK IELTS Teacher to respect your privacy regarding any information I collect while operating this website. This Privacy Policy applies to https://www.hkieltsteacher.com (hereinafter, “HK IELTS TEACHER”, “me”, “I”, “my”, “the Website” or “my Website”).

I respect your privacy and am committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide me through my Website. I have adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain what information may be collected on the Website, how I use this information, and under what circumstances I may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information I collect through the Website and does not apply to my collection of information from other sources.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, HK IELTS TEACHER collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request, and potentially personally-identifying information – namely Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. HK IELTS TEACHER’s purpose in collecting this information is to better understand how HK IELTS TEACHER’s visitors use the Website.

HK IELTS TEACHER only discloses logged-in user addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to HK IELTS TEACHER’s website choose to interact with HK IELTS TEACHER in ways that require HK IELTS TEACHER to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that HK IELTS TEACHER gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors to provide an email address when they create a login account to access certain pages or other materials on https://www.hkieltsteacher.com/.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

HK IELTS TEACHER discloses personally-identifying information and potentially personally-identifying only to those of its affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on HK IELTS TEACHER’s behalf or to provide services available at HK IELTS TEACHER’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using HK IELTS TEACHER’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

HK IELTS TEACHER will not rent or sell personally-identifying information or potentially personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its affiliated organizations as described above, HK IELTS TEACHER discloses personally-identifying information and potentially personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when HK IELTS TEACHER believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HK IELTS TEACHER, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of https://www.hkieltsteacher.com and have supplied your email address, I may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, ask for your feedback, or just inform you about important information regarding the Website or my products or services. I primarily use my blog to communicate this type of information, so I expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.

I take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personally-identifying and potentially personally-identifying information.

Online Payments

Visitors who purchase HK IELTS TEACHER’s services or products from the Website are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. For digital products (i.e. those that do not need to be physically shipped), HK IELTS TEACHER collects at a minimum the email address to identify the payee and, where necessary, create a login account.

HK IELTS TEACHER does not receive the complete financial information (complete credit card number or the verification number) of any transaction made through the Website. Such details are captured and processed directly by my online payments provider via a website payments plugin.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to me, but please remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. I strive to use commercially accepted methods of safeguarding your Personal Information during transmission and storage – methods including securing all data transmission between your device and the Website with a commercial SSL encryption certificate by Sectigo (verify with Sectigo by clicking on their secure seal at the bottom of the page), having all payment processing steps handled securely by a payments provider, having passwords irreversibly encrypted at the browser before being transmitted to the server for account creation or logging in (standard practice for modern websites), and by subscribing to a paid service that scans my Website daily to screen it for any malware. Even so, I cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Cookies

To enrich and perfect your online experience, my Website uses “Cookies” and similar technologies and services provided by others to display personalized content and to store your preferences on your computer.

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. HK IELTS TEACHER uses cookies to help identify visitors according to their browser type, device type, and IP address, and to track their usage of https://www.hkieltsteacher.com, and their website access preferences. This information helps me know how I might need to improve the website for visitors in general.

HK IELTS TEACHER visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Website, with the drawback that certain features of my Website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

By continuing to navigate my Website without changing your cookie settings, you hereby acknowledge and agree to HK IELTS TEACHER’s use of cookies.
