Privacy Policy

MediaGuide.NG (‘us’ or ‘we’) is committed to protecting your personal information of our website users. Whenever you provide such information, we are legally obliged to use your information in line with all laws concerning the protection of personal information.

We collect and use different information and this Privacy Policy explains how we use that information and in particular the following:

• NON-REGISTERED USERS

• REGISTERED USERS AND THE INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT

• HOW WE LOOK AFTER YOUR INFORMATION

• HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

• SHARING YOUR INFORMATION WITH OTHER PEOPLE

• YOUR RIGHTS AND FURTHER INFORMATION

Please note that our services may contain links to websites that are owned and operated by third parties. These websites and apps will have their own privacy policies that govern the collection and use of your personal information which you should review. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of third party websites so your use of such websites is at your own risk.

Non Registered Users

Unless you register yourself, MediaGuide.NG does not collect personally identifiable information about you, such as your email address, name, age, etc. To register yourself is optional. You can access most of the content of MediaGuide.NG anonymously without registering yourself.

Types of information we may collect about you

When you sign up to our services, such as our website forums, regular newsletters, enter competitions, buy a magazine subscription, order products we may ask for personal information about you. This can include information such as your name and e-mail address. Different services may ask for different types of information.

If you are aged 16 or under, you must get your parent/guardian’s permission before you provide us with your personal information. Unless you have this consent you are not allowed to give us your information.

Here is some more specific detail about the information we may collect:

• Information you give to us: information that you provide by filling in forms on our services. This includes information provided at the time of registering to use an app or website, subscribing to any services, posting material, filling in a survey or requesting further services. We may also ask you for information when you enter a competition or promotion and when you report a problem with our services.

• Information about your use of our websites: we may collect your IP address and use cookies on our websites.

How we look after your information

Your information will be processed by staff where it is necessary to fulfil an order, process payment details or provide you with other support services.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its security and when giving us your information you do so at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We will hold your information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant service, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us. If you change your registration profile to opt-out of receiving communications from us, your record will stay on the system so we can ensure that we do not contact you in the future. If you wish to cancel your registration with any of MediaGuide.NG’s websites, you may do so by contacting us using the details available in the ‘Contact Us’ section of the website or by emailing mg@mediaguide.ng

You can opt-out of these marketing messages at any time by sending an email to mg@mediaguide.ng, including your full name, user name (if applicable) postcode, details of the service you are using and/or magazine subscription information. Please note that it may take up to two weeks to implement this change in your preferences. You will always be given a straightforward way to opt out of our marketing messages each time you receive a communication from us.
