WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY

We understand that privacy is important to you and we want to do anything we can to ensure your information is protected. This website privacy policy outlines:

  • What personal information we collect;
  • How we collect and store this information;
  • How we use this information;
  • Who sees your information; and
  • How you can access your information

Throughout this policy, we refer to your ‘personal information’ which means information which identifies you as an individual or from which your identity can be reasonably ascertained. Your address is an example of personal information.

Before we make any changes to our privacy policy, we will post these changes on our website. Since changes can have an impact on your privacy, we suggest that you visit this policy from time to time to ensure you know the latest regulations.

You will occasionally find specific and additional privacy provisions for certain sections of our website that are not in this privacy policy. These provisions are important and should be read and understood by all of our site visitors. If you happen to find inconsistencies between this privacy policy and those other provisions, the specific and additional provisions will prevail.

Information collected

When we collect information about you, it is often personal information that you choose to give us. An example would be any comments or messages you submit to us via email or our Contact Us form.

The information we collect is done through an automatic system that receives and records your information on our server logs from your browser. Examples of this information would be your IP address, cookie information and the page you requested.

Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that many websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. We often set and access cookies on your computer. We do this so we can recognize you if you come back to our site and also to see how you found our website in the first place.

Although a cookie file can contain information such as a userID, it cannot be used to get data from your hard drive, your email or any other personal information about you. Under no circumstances do we ever use cookies to store or transmit any of your personal information online.

You can refuse cookies by switching them off in your browser settings. However, if you do this, you will not be able to fully function our website. This may cause:

  • some web pages not to load properly
  • your access to be restricted or denied

Third parties provide certain services available on our site on our behalf. We may provide third parties with your personal information if they are helping us deliver information and services to you. It is also possible that we will share your personal information with organizations that help us with archiving, delivery, consulting, auditing, mailhouse, technology and security services.

It is possible that we will use or disclose personal information that we collect about you:

  • where you have consented to its use or disclosure;
  • for the purposes for which it was collected;
  • for marketing analysis purposes;
  • to uphold our relationship with you;
  • to calculate user statistics and website usage;
  • where a third party buys, wishes to buy, or makes inquiries in relation to buying, an interest in this website; or

If we believe that invitations or information is relevant to your business, we may use your personal information to inform you about our services, developments and other matters. If you do not wish to be contacted, please fill in the contact details below and let us know.

Links

As our website includes links to other sites, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content that is on these sites. Linked websites have their own privacy practices and you should read them before you visit the site.

Security

Ensuring our website is secure is one of our utmost priorities. Although we use a number of mechanisms to protect the security and integrity of your personal information, no online data transmission can be guaranteed to be completely secure. So while we aim to protect such information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you send out to us and you do so at your own risk. With that in mind, we will take reasonable steps to protect your information from being misused, lost, illegally accessed, modified or disclosed.

Please provide as much detail as you can about the particular information you seek, in order to help us retrieve it. An access fee may be charged to cover our costs of providing the information to you.
