How we collect information

Registration information for Pegasus Journal online subscribers is collected via online forms. The information collected consists solely of the subscriber’s name and email address.

Use of your information

Information supplied during the subscription process is used for the purpose of granting access to online issues of the journal and to allow communication between Pegasus and its subscribers. Such communication is restricted to the provision of information about our services.

Who has access to your data

Only the administrative staff of Pegasus Journal can access the names and email addresses of subscribers. Data collected by us will never be transferred to a third party for any purpose whatsoever.

Accessing and amending your own information

Users’ registration information will be visible to the user on his or her profile page. Where it is in error, it will be amended by Pegasus Journal within 7 days of receipt of the user’s request. Such data will not be visible to other users.

Removal of data

Registration data will be retained during the subscription period, and destroyed within 14 days of membership being cancelled, or within one year of the subscription lapsing.

Withdrawal by the user of permission to hold data will be equivalent to the termination of that user’s subscription to Pegasus Journal.
