Fluid Network Privacy Policy

The short of it? We wont give away or sell your data, we don't write stuff to your browser we wouldn't want on our own.
The long of it - keep reading!


Your data

If you choose to trust us with your details, we will never give away your data without your express concent. Ever. Nuh-uh. Occasionally we'll slip in a partner offer to a newsletter or the likes that we think is relevant to the site and could be useful to you, but you can rest assured that the partner in question don't have your name or details unless you've been asked.

All data we hold on you is accessible through your profile which you can view and modify by logging in. If you have forgotten your password or don't think you have a password, just click on the login button on the top right of the homepage and there's a helpful 'forgot password' link you can use to have a new one sent out to your email address. If we don't have your email address, we don't have any personal data on you. Do keep in mind that we've been around for a long time, so you may wish to consider any old addresses. If you're still not convinced, drop us an email from the 'contact us' page and we'll look into it.

Anonymous cookies from Fluid Network Ltd

Fluid Network uses anonymous cookies (a cookie is just a small private text file) to store the current city you're looking at (which is also stored as part of the web address, but the cookie makes it faster) and list previous venues you've looked at so we can display content we think might be relevant based on those venues.

We don't know who you are, we don't store your IP address, and information from these cookies is never used for anything else but you. If someone has jumped on your computer when you weren't looking and filled your browser history up with shaven monkey strip bars as a joke, feel free to click here to delete that history and start your Fluid journey a-new.

If you'd like to continue using Fluid without that cookie, just click here and we'll write a special anonymous cookie to tell our other cookie not to look at your history. If that's not confusing enough by itself, that seems to be the way it's done. If someone ever comes up with a way to stop us from writing a cookie to tell our site not to write a cookie, let us know and we'll put it in place.

Named cookies from Fluid Network Ltd

If you log into Fluid Network, you can choose to click a box that says "remember me" that writes a cookie to your machine so your username and password are saved for next time you want to log in. If you've done this on a shared machine or wish for us to , you might be being a bit silly and may wish to remove it; just go to the login screen (if you're already logged in, you need to log out first) and click the "forget me" button.

Once you're logged in, we put a cookie on your machine that tells us who you are whilst you're logged in. It's called a session cookie. When your browser session (clue is in the name) is finished (i.e. you close it), your browser should delete your session cookie. Even if it doesn't, once your session finishes on the server, the cookie is useless until you log in again at which time you'll be given a new session cookie anyway.

If you don't want us to store login information, don't log in. (Like what we did there?)

Anonymous cookies from third parties

We use Google Analytics to count how mnay of you good people visit our website. They write a small cookie that keeps track of your time here on Fluid that helps us create a better service. It's all anonymous, we pinky-promise.

Named cookies from third parties

You're kidding, right? We're pretty sure that's not even possible without resorting to some nasty tricks, and even if it was we're not going to do it.
