1. Information Which We Collect
You will provide us information about yourself, your firm or company, and your practices when you register to be a member, register for certain services, register for email newsletters and alerts, or purchase items through our site. You may also provide additional comments on how you see us servicing your needs and interests. If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient and safer customised user experience. This allows us to provide services and features which are most likely to serve your needs and customise our services to make your experiences safer and easier. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for this purpose and to achieve this goal. We use data collection devices such as “cookies” on certain pages on our site. “Cookies” are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing customised services. We also use “cookies” to allow you to enter your password less frequently during a session. We also offer certain features that are only available through the use of a “cookie”.
2. Our Use of Your Information
We use personal information about you, including but not limited to the information in the file we maintain about you, other information we obtain from your current and past activities on our website to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and help ensure safe access to our website. You agree that we may use personal information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyse site usage, to improve our content and produce offerings and customise our site’s content, layout and services. These uses improve our site and better tailor it to meet your needs so as to provide you with a smooth, efficient, safer and customised experience whilst utilising our services.
We may enter into alliances, partnerships or other business arrangements with third parties who may be given access to personal information (including, but not limited to, your email address) for the purpose of providing you information regarding products and services that we think will be of interest to you, unless you opt out of receiving such communications. In connection with alliances, partnerships or arrangements, we may also provide certain information to third parties if we have determined that the information will be used in a responsible manner by a responsible third party. For example, some of our partners operate stores or provide services on our site. We also use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, sending email and processing credit card payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, our partners and other third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with business activities. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or any dissolution.
3. Our Disclosure of Your Information
Although we adhere to industry standard practices to protect your personal information, due to technical limitations we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in other ways not described in this Policy. For example, without limiting the foregoing, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or all third parties under certain circumstances (such as a legal request, Subpoena or Notice of Non-Party Disclosure) or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we cannot and do not guarantee and you should not expect that your personal information or private communications will remain always private.
4. Other Information Collectors
Your information is stored on our server located in the ACT. We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
All credit card transactions are processed using 128 bit SSL encryption.
