How we use the information that we collect
Embedded content from other websites
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

We keep contact form submissions for customer service purposes. The information submitted through the contact forms are not used for marketing purposes.
We may use the information that we collect to send you e-mail communications, such as editorial updates, information about your account or changes to the 2communicate website, or promotional messages about our own or our marketing partners’ products and services. If you signed up for one of our email newsletters, we also will send you the newsletter that you requested. When you sign up for a newsletter or as to have a CV sent to you, the information you provide is stored on the mailchimp servers (click here to find out more about their privacy policies).
With your consent, we may use your mobile number to send you promotions, notifications, or other services.
In order to provide our readers with free access to our content, we may at a later date display advertisements on the 2communicate website, many of which are targeted based on information about you. For example, using information collected through cookies, web beacons, and other sources, we may use demographic data or information about your online activities or interests to display targeted advertising that may be relevant to your preferences. Through this process, advertisers reach Site visitors who are most interested in their products, and you see advertising for products or services in which you may be interested. For more information on how cookies and other technologies work, please see our discussion of cookies and other technologies.
We do not currently have any user accounts. Should this change in the future, in order to provide you with an open, but also civil, discussion forum, we would track user involvement in our community discussions. For example, we would keep track of the ratio of how many flagged comments are eventually deleted in order to award badges to our most effective comment moderators. For more information on this process, please see our FAQ section about comment moderation guidelines.
We may use the information that we collect to fulfill your requests for products, services, and information. For example, we may use your contact information to respond to your customer service requests or to enable you to participate in features on the 2communicate website such as surveys, polls, sweepstakes, and message boards.
