How do we collect and use your information?

Anorak may collect information about you in a number of ways:

On Our Website
If you use our Submit section, we do monitor messages and will make sure that no information is displayed that would identify you or where you live. Your name and age are the only bits of information we display.

Marketing Communications
As we have explained above, we may use information that we collect about you to send you our regular newsletters as well as details of competitions, special offers or other useful information about our magazine.

Remember, if you do not want to receive any more information from us all you have to do is email us at or write to us at the address above at any time.

Third Parties

We will not pass your information onto any third parties without your consent. An exception to this is if we need third parties to carry out certain services for us. For example, if you win a competition we will pass your information onto a third party who will arrange delivery of your prize. We will make sure that such third parties keep your information secure and no longer than is necessary. We will not pass your information to third parties outside the European Economic Area without your consent.

Some of the information which you give to us (for example, whether you are a boy or a girl or whether you are a cable or satellite viewer) does not on its own identify you. We collect this type of information in order to identify trends in our business. It is known as “aggregate information”. We may pass aggregate information to third parties such as advertisers and business partners to give them a better understanding of our business. However, such information will not identify you personally.

If our business is sold, your information will be passed to the new owner.

Access to your personal information

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you and to have any errors corrected. If you would like to make a request please write to (enclosing the fee of £10):
Anorak Magazine, 8 Soda Studios, 268 Kingsland Road, London E8 4DG.
