In this document we want to take away certain obstructions, according to privacy issues and make our policy crystal clear. If needed, please contact us for additional information. Mail us your questions at service(monkey-tail)write2me.com or write us a letter at:
We are convinced that protection of the personal lives of Write2me users and visitors is a fundamental issue. Therefore we offer our services according to the Dutch law about using, collecting and sharing personal information. Below you can read about its contents.
Write2me needs your personal information to create an archive in order to deliver commercial and redactional information to third parties.
All information will be archived very carefully and will not be sold or made public in any way, unless the law orders us to give certain information. Exception to this rule is that Write2me.nl for (commercial) mailings provides the needed personal information, only because of technical reasons to third parties. In this case we only work with carefully chozen companies, and we also will have these companies signed for 'convidenciallity' and 'not re-use' of the provided information. To be absolutely clear: we DO NOT sell personal information to others!!
Write2me will send a commercial mailing at maximum of once every two weeks. To make these mailings interesting for you, we let the mailing fit your profile and therefore we need your personal information. Write2me PRO users do not receive commercial mailings.
To request a Write2me FREE guestbook we need the address of your website (to create a link) and your e-mail address. We also ask for your name, but you are free to enter a fake name. This information will be archived on our server in a MySQL database. Only the system administrators of Write2me have access to this database.
To provide you an invoice for the payment of the annual licence (49 euro excl. VAT, for Write2me PRO), we need your address. We ask you to send this information by e-mail to us. This information needs to be archived in our administration, due to FISCALE reasons.
During the registration procedure we offer you the possibility to sign up for one or more e-mail magazines. If you decide to sign up, we give your e-mail address to the concerning e-mail magazine publisher. We receive a small reward for every new membership we established.
All configurations of your guestbook, with exception of your guestbook (is encrypted), are visible for the system administrators.
When you visit a guestbook, you have the option to switch languages. When you choose another language than English, your prefered language will be saved in a cookie on your computer. Your preferences will be used for a later visit.
In the header and footer of each Write2me FREE guestbook you will find advertisements. Most advertisements are placed by companies to which we put it out to. It is possible that these companies are able, for instance your IP, to save information within a cookie on your computer. This gives these companies the possibility to check how often and when you click the advertisements. These companies are not able to combine the IP and the locked information to the personal information that you provided to Write2me.
We collect the number of unique visitors and so called pageviews per day on every single page of Write2me. With this information we can improve our website technically, as well as the contents. For every guestbook category we also collect statistic information. With this information we can show our advertisers our range. When you, as individual user of Write2me, visited a certain page and when, will not be logged and therefore will be available for us nor for third parties.
The infrastructure and programms that we use to manage our guestbook service, are secured to VOORKOMEN that others can get access to user information. Although we can not provide a 100% guarantee that the information is effective, we do our upperbest to secure the information.
We remain the rights to make changes in our Privacy Statement. Therefore check our Privacy Statement often. Of course, we will provide you information about future changes within the Write2me system and service. We will show the date of our latest update in our Privacy Statement.
