Member Sign-up

Queenstown Young Professionals Inc (“QYP”) wishes to provide you with a superior, personalised internet experience. In order for you to take advantage of the many features of this website, you are first asked to complete a sign-up form. During sign-up, you will be requested to provide certain contact information, such as name and email address. This information is used to contact you about upcoming events, updates and other relevant news items.


Information Collection and Use

Queenstown Young Professionals Inc is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. We stress that all personal information is always treated as personal and confidential, unless specifically stated otherwise.



A cookie is a piece of data stored on the member’s hard drive containing information about the member. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the member closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If you reject the cookie, you may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that you will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, you may not be able to participate in Sweepstakes, Contests or monthly Drawings that may take place. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our members to enhance the experience on our site. Some of our business partners could use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.


Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the site, track member’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.



We may share aggregated demographic information with our sponsors, partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We may partner with another party to provide specific services. When a member signs up for these services, we may share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.



This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that QYP is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our members to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.


Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the member therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. No member is obliged to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in a survey or contest. Information requested may include contact information and demographic information. Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used in aggregate form for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.



This website takes certain precautions to protect our members’ information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. However, there is unfortunately no way yet for the industry to guarantee that the information you transmit through the Internet is entirely secure. Members are responsible for securing the confidentiality of their password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under their password or account. It is strongly recommended that members take extra precautions when receiving files from unfamiliar third parties (i.e., via email), as they may be harmful. If you have any questions about the security at our website, please send us an e-mail.


Special Offers

We may send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally receive information on events, news, new member benefits or other useful communications. Out of respect for the privacy of our members, we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.


Site and Service Updates

We may also send the member site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to un-subscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the member to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via e-mail or phone.


Correction/Updating Personal Information

If your personally identifiable information changes or if you no longer desire to be a member of QYP, we will endeavour to provide a way to correct, update or remove the personal data you provided to us. This can be done by sending us an e-mail.



Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletters or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the “unsubscribe” link in any e-mail message, or by sending us an e-mail.


Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes via the Privacy links on the website so our members are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
