We may ask for your username, password, address, full name, telephone number, email address and postal address, reason for using the service, or other information to register online or other personally identifying information to receive information or services.

If you choose not to provide requested information, however, some information and services may not be available to you.

We may collect your IP address, navigational and purchase information. When you use the service, we place a text file called a 'cookie' in the browser directory of your computer's hard drive. A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can store on your web browser and retrieve later. The cookie cannot be read by any web site other than the one that set up the cookie. Cookies enable us to recognise the information you have consented to provide and help us determine what portions of this service are most appropriate for your needs. Cookies give you the ability to retrieve previous search results and view your previous transactions.

Personal information is only collected by means of data submitted intentionally by the individual.

Australian Privacy Principle 6: Use or disclosure of personal information

Personal information is collected only for the purpose of accessing the service.

Australian Privacy Principle 7: Direct marketing

Users of the service can reasonable expect to have personal information collected used for direct marketing.

Specifically, the information collected from this site may be stored, accessed, and used in jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those of your home jurisdiction.

Australian Privacy Principle 9: Adoption, use or disclosure of government related identifiers

We do not use government related identifiers except insofar as email address may constitute a government related identifier and then only as reasonably necessary for us to verify the identity of the individual for the purposes of our activities or functions.

Australian Privacy Principle 10: Quality of personal information

We endeavour to ensure that personal information that we collect is accurate, up-to-date.

Australian Privacy Principle 11: Security of personal information
