Privacy Policy

This is a legal document which sets out how HistoryMole handles data which identifies you. You should read it in conjunction with the HistoryMole Terms and Conditions, of which this Privacy Policy forms part.

At HistoryMole, we believe strongly in protecting the privacy of our Members' personal information. This statement describes the privacy practices we apply for the HistoryMole Service. As part of that, it also expresses our approach to complying with the data protection laws which apply in the United Kingdom. If we change this Privacy Policy, we will notify you of the changed document in the same way as we notify changes to the HistoryMole Terms and Conditions.

1. The Information we Collect and Track

When you register for the HistoryMole Service, you provide a UserID chosen by you, your email address and some optional information about yourself or your organization ('Registration Information'). They are available to you through the 'My Profile' page. Changes to some of this Registration Information can be made via the 'My Profile' page.  Any information that cannot be changed via the 'My Profile' page can be made by request via an email to Please re-type this email address into the email system that you use

We use small files known as 'cookies' to enhance visitors' experience of the HistoryMole Service as follows:

  • When logged-in, to track a Members' Registration Information, so that HistoryMole Service responds correctly as the Member moves from page-to-page and provides the facilities available to the Members' particular 'Registration Class'.
  • More generally, to facilitate assessment of 'popular' web site activity so that we may enhance the service.

2. Sharing and Use of Information

We, and (where relevant) our credit card processing agents, will not supply your personal data to a third party for commercial exploitation - thus, you can rest assured that we will not sell the lists of our Members' email addresses to a third party; and the only circumstances in which we will provide any of your personal data to a third party for non-commercial purposes are those contained in this Privacy Policy.


  • We do not directly make your email address available to anyone on any screen of the HistoryMole Service.
  • We may use, and provide to third parties, anonymised demographic data provided by Members to target advertising more appropriately.
  • We may send regular and occasional emails, which Members can decide to receive or not, according to their preferences. Where applicable, this option is selected through 'My Profile'.
  • Where credit card payment is applicable, Members' credit or debit card information is encrypted. Our credit card processing agents may transfer to, process and hold your credit card information in countries either within or outside the European Economic Area in connection with performing their duties.
  • We may share data supplied by you (or collected about you) with our subsidiaries and other companies in our group, but only for the purposes described in this policy.
  • If all of the assets which HistoryMole uses to operate its business (or substantially all of them) are acquired by a third party, we may transfer personal data we then hold to that party.
  • The personal information held by us is held on and processed by computers situated in the United Kingdom.

3. Security

We have reasonable security measures in place to protect our Member database and access to this database is restricted. However, it remains each Member's responsibility:

  • to protect against unauthorised access to Your Details;
  • to ensure against use by anyone else of the HistoryMole Service through the computer that Member uses while they are 'logged in' to HistoryMole Service;
  • to log off or exit from the HistoryMole Service when not using it; and 
  • to keep his/her password secret.

4. Opt-out Policy

You may have your registration details removed at any time. Contact us at Please re-type this email address into the email system that you use with your current email address and registered UserID and we will remove all of your registration information from the system.

Where e-mailed information is an option, we provide registered Members with the opportunity to opt-out of receiving e-mailed information which they have previously opted to receive. This opt-out can be effected by making appropriate selections at 'My Profile'.

5. Disclosure for Legal Reasons

We reserve the right to communicate such of a Member's personal information as we hold to third parties which seek the disclosure of it, and which make a legally-compliant request for its disclosure.

6. Contacting HistoryMole

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with HistoryMole, you can contact us at Please re-type this email address into the email system that you use. You can also use this address if you wish to request from HistoryMole a copy of the personal data we hold about you or a description of that data.

However, all of the data which identifies you can be viewed on-line on the 'My Profile' page when you are 'logged-in' to the HistoryMole Service.
