This policy explains how FLUX MAGAZINE uses personal information which we collect from you.

When you wish to receive or use services on this website, such as newsletters, prize draws, uploading your work, you will be asked to submit personal information such as your name and email address.

By entering the details in the forms, you enable FLUX MAGAZINE and its service providers to provide you with the services you select.

Use and Storage of Information

When you supply any personal information to fluxmagazine.com (e.g. for membership and prize draws) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use those data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it (see the notices on particular webpages that let you know why we are requesting the information) and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.

In general, any information you provide to fluxmagazine.com will only be used within fluxmagazine.com and by its agents and service providers. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to fluxmagazine.com, we can use whatever information that is available about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school, e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, in the case of fluxmagazine.com subscription, you no longer wish to continue your registration as a fluxmagazine.com subsciber. For safety reasons, however, we may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of fluxmagazine.com. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other fluxmagazine.com services (e.g. email notifications), that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information fluxmagazine.com holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. Please address requests to editorial@fluxmagazine.com.

If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian’s permission beforehand whenever you provide personal information to fluxmagazine.com. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
