Registration

Any visitor who wishes to use services available on the MediaGroup site is asked to complete a registration form. During registration a user is required to give some information such as name, email address, position, company name and details, country of residence, post code and so on. We encourage our users to register and provide all mandatory and optional information so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site. Users may need to register more than once for certain services offered by MediaGroup and/or its marketing partners and/or previously provided registration information may be used to “pre-populate” a registration form when a user registers for a new MediaGroup service.

We use the information we collect from our members during the registration process(s) to allow us to make MediaGroup and its marketing partners more responsive to users, and to help us customize the service and target advertised, sponsorships, and email offers from us and our business partners.

At our discretion, we will make aggregate information about MediaGroup’s users available to help describe and identify our users to business partners, co-branded sites, the industry, and the public, as well as our advertisers.

In certain cases we may also share discrete information about a user to a marketing partner to enable that partner to work with MediaGroup to deliver the desired service to the user. They will let the user know that he/she will need to use such explicit user data at the time the service is requested and user acceptance of the service shall constitute an authorization of the right of MediaGroup to use that explicit data for the sole purchase of such delivered service. MediaGroup will not share any detailed information with other companies without the user’s express knowledge and consent to the need to do so.
