Privacy Policy

World Directory is strongly committed to protecting your privacy while interacting with our content, products and services. We want to provide a safe and secure environment for you and your family.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to tell you what kind of information we may gather about you when you visit our site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct this information. Our policy allows you to choose what kind and how much information you provide to us and to control how we use whatever information you give us. Our goal is to provide you with a satisfying experience while allowing you to control your privacy and to give you a means to voice any questions or concerns you may have.

This policy applies only to World Directory and not to other companies' or organisations' websites to which World Directory is linked.

Collection of information

Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address or information about what you like and do not like. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not.

World Directory collects two types of information. The first type is anonymous information. For instance, we may collect information to tell us that five thousand people visit this Privacy Policy today, but we do not know their names, where they live or their date of birth - they are 'anonymous' to us.

The second type of information that World Directory collects is personal information. World Directory will collect personal information that lets us know the specifics of who you are such as your name, email address, or postal address, when you provide it to us. With this information, World Directory can provide a variety of personalised and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users. We hope that you will find it beneficial to provide individually identifiable information about yourself to us because it will make our services more valuable to you.

Use of anonymous information

World Directory automatically gathers anonymous information to monitor the use of World Directory like the numbers and frequency of visitors to World Directory and its areas. We only use such data in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine how much our audiences use parts of the site, so we can improve World Directory to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many users as possible. World Directory may publish or provide this aggregate data to other people.

Use of personal information

World Directory will only use the personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it. World Directory will not use it for any other purpose without your consent.


There will be occasions where it will be necessary for World Directory to disclose your personal information to third parties. World Directory may be required by law to disclose the information, or World Directory may be required to disclose your personal information to third parties to provide the service you have requested, for example, if you purchase products online, World Directory will need to disclose your personal information to third parties in order to bill and deliver your products. However, the disclosure will only be made where it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which you disclosed your personal information. Otherwise than stated above, we do not disclose personal information that you may give us, such as your name, address, email address or telephone number, to any organisation or person outside World Directory unless you have authorised us to do so.

No sale of personal information

Under no circumstances will World Directory sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.
