- The Information We Collect
Specific aspects of the SUCULTURE Services will be available to Members who have registered with SUCULTURE and created a SUCULTURE profile. The process of registration involves filling a form with basic information which includes your full name, e-mail address, date of birth, profession, location and gender, etc. (collectively, “the Registration Information“).
Upon creating a Profile, SUCULTURE assigns a “Profile or Account ID” unique to you, which identifies and organises information relating to your specific account and the content associated with your profile. The Profile ID allows SUCULTURE to develop a unique internet URL for your Profile (“the Profile URL“). As outlined, SUCULTURE Profile IDs and/or Profile URLs always constitute Public Information and may as a consequence be browsed, accessed, viewed and/or enjoyed by anyone with access to the SUCULTURE Services. You may restrict access to whom may contact you, but cannot apply restrictions to Public Information through your Profile Settings, or make your SUCULTURE Profile IDs and Profile URLs Restricted Information.
