2. Types of Information Collected and Uses of Collected Information

There are certain specific activities you may or may not choose to take part in, which require the transmission of personally identifiable information. These include posting content or comments, creating accounts, ordering products and services, posting reviews, submitting feedback and so on. In such instances, you will be required to provide a certain amount of information about yourself, in accordance with the requirements of the activity in question. Examples of such information may include your email address, first and last name, date of birth, telephone number, postal address and so on. Such information is submitted voluntarily on your behalf and is not automatically collected by www.dailywirestar.com. However, the information may be mandatory, in order for you to take part in any given activity or make use of an online service.

For example, if you submit a review to our customer service department, we may then use its content in-part or in-full as a promotional/marketing material, which may also contain your name. In accordance with requirements, we may also use your personal information for the purposes of resolving disputes, troubleshooting and getting in contact with you as and when necessary.
