SECURITY MEASURES

We use standard physical, electronic and procedural security measures. We use these measures to protect personal information in our control against loss or theft. We also use these measures to protect against unauthorized access. While we use standard security measures, the Internet is not 100% secure. We cannot guarantee that any of your personal information stored or sent to us will be completely safe. We encourage you to use caution when using these websites.

WE MAY LINK TO THIRD PARTY SITES OR SERVICES WE DO NOT CONTROL

You may be able to access certain third party sites from our website. This includes social media sites. This Privacy Policy does not apply to those third party sites. We strongly advise you to check the privacy policies of all third party sites you visit to find out how they are treating your personal information. We are not responsible for these third parties’ practices.

WE OR OUR VENDORS STORE INFORMATION IN AND OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES

We or our vendors store information in and outside of the United States. Information we or our vendors maintain may be stored, processed or accessed both within and outside of Australia. You understand and agree that we may transfer your information to the United States or elsewhere and that the laws of these countries may not afford the same level of protection as those in your country. This website is subject to Australian law. In Australia, local laws may permit government and law enforcement to have access to your information. This may differ from the laws in your country.

WE MAY UPDATE THIS PRIVACY POLICY

From time to time we may change our privacy practices. We will notify you of any material changes as required by law. We will post an updated copy on our website. Please check this page for updates.

FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US IF YOU HAVE MORE QUESTIONS

We may establish and maintain a file of your information. This file is accessible at our office. Our authorized employees and agents have access to your information to perform their job requirements.

COOKIES
We use several common tracking tools on our website. Our vendors may also use these tools. These may include browser cookies. We may also use web beacons, flash cookies, and similar technologies.

We use these tools to:

Recognize new or past users
Store your password if you are registered on our website
Improve our website
Collect information about your browsing history
Better understand the interests of our users and web site visitors and serve them with the most relevant content

You can control tracking tools

Your browser may give you the ability to control cookies. How you do so depends on the type of cookie. Certain browsers can be set to reject browser cookies. To control flash cookies, which we may use on our website from time to time, you can go here. Why? Because flash cookies cannot be controlled through your browser settings. If you block cookies on your browser, certain features on our website may not work. If you block or delete cookies, not all of the tracking that we have described in this Policy will stop.

Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to those signals.
