Aqua will seek to ensure that any identifiable personal information it collects during the registration and purchasing processes will be adequate, relevant and not excessive for purposes of operating its websites or any of its services and it will be kept accurate and up-to-date based on the information provided.
How We Collect Information
Aqua collects information from you in two ways: directly from your input and automatically through Aqua's website technologies.
Information You Provide
The types of personal information that Aqua collects directly from you may include:
Contact details, such as your name, email address, postal address and telephone number;
Educational and professional interests and background information;
Usernames and passwords;
Payment information, such as a credit or debit card number;

In order to access certain content and to make use of additional functionality and features of Aqua's websites and services, we may ask you to register for an account by completing and submitting a registration form, which may request additional information.
If you choose to register and sign in by using a third party account (such as your Facebook account), the authentication of your login is handled by the third party. Aqua will collect your name, email address and any other information about your third party account that you agree to share with us at the time you give permission for your Aqua account to be linked to your third party account.
Information We Receive From Other Sources
Aqua may hold information about you if you use any of the other websites we operate or the other services we provide. We also work closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, credit reference agencies) and may receive information about you from them.

Aqua may use your personal information in the following ways:
To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us and to provide you with information about products and services that you request from us;
To send you periodic catalogues from Aqua, if you have consented to receive them;
To provide you with information about other products, events and services we offer that are similar to those you have already purchased or inquired about or other communications containing information about new products and services or upcoming events of ours, our affiliates and non-affiliated third parties such as societies and sponsors, if you have consented to receive this information;
For internal business and research purposes and to help enhance, evaluate and develop our websites, products and services and to develop new products and services;
To notify you about changes or updates to our websites;

To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so; and
As part of our efforts to keep our site safe and secure; and
For any other purpose that we may notify you of from time to time, providing that we have sought your consent.
Disclosure of Your Information
Aqua will not disclose your personal information to any third party except as follows:
Where necessary in connection with services provided by intermediaries, who are required to comply with this policy. These service providers provide us with a wide range of office, administrative, information technology, production and business management services;
If you voluntarily provide information in response to an advertisement, with the third party serving the advertisement;
In order to comply with the law or requests by law enforcement agencies, to enforce our Terms and Conditions or to protect the rights, property or safety of our services, users or others; and
In the event that all or substantially all of the business or assets of Aqua relating to this service are sold or otherwise assigned to another entity, personally identifiable information may be transferred to such entity; and
Where necessary in connection with providing publishing services on behalf of third parties, such as institutions and societies, providing we have your consent.
Aqua may disclose to carefully chosen third parties navigational and transactional information in the form of anonymous, aggregate usage statistics (including "page views" on this website and the products therein) and demographics but only in forms that do not reveal your identity or personal information.
Disclosure in Chat Rooms or Forums
You should be aware that identifiable personal information--such as your name or e-mail address--that you voluntarily disclose and that is accessible to other users (e.g. on bulletin boards or in chat areas) could be collected and disclosed by others. Aqua cannot take any responsibility for such collection and disclosure.
The Aqua website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Aqua pages, or register with Aqua site or services, a cookie helps Aqua to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Aqua website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Aqua features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Aqua services or websites you visit.
