An additional area in which we ask for your name is on bulletin boards or forums - places on the site where you can participate in a discussion of a particular subject by posting written comments which are then entirely public. You must register your details in order to do so. Registration information will not be disclosed and is for security purposes. You should be aware that if you do disclose personal information on the bulletin boards or forums, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. By participating in these forums, you should remember that you are legally liable for the material you post, including libel and copyright infringement.
2. Storage, correction and disclosure of personal data
We will retain the data we hold concerning you for as long as it is necessary to do so. We do not pass your data onto third parties unless you have given us your express consent or we are required to do so by law. Should you discover any inaccuracies in your personal information, please update your details in the Login section. If you no longer wish for us to hold your data please email email@example.com and we will remove you from our records.

Please note that if you have signed up for several different lists you will have to remove yourself from each one individually.
5. Links to other sites
Our site contains links to other sites that are not under our control, even though they may use the Akira Press name or logo on their site through an agreement with us. Such other sites do not necessarily follow our privacy policies, and may place their own cookies on your computer. This practice is standard on the Web. We do not control cookies placed on your computer by third parties whose or links appear on our site.
6. Security of private information
We would like to be able to tell you that the personal information you provide us with is absolutely safe. Unfortunately, several well-publicised instances of computer security breaches make it impossible for anyone to be so confident. However we take reasonable steps to protect the information you provide us from theft, alteration or unauthorized inspection.
7. Parents and guardians
We encourage you to get involved with your children's online usage and to be aware of the activities in which they are participating. We also ask you to check back here regularly to see what our latest policies are, particularly those relating to children. You should be aware that if your children voluntarily disclose their names, email addresses or other information on bulletin boards or chat areas of other websites, such disclosures may result in unsolicited messages from other parties. We suggest that you discourage your child from providing such information on this site or elsewhere unless you are confident that the information will not be misused.
