We are committed to protecting your privacy and confidentiality. We respect our customers and members and understand that all users need to know that their data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them. Information is only collected and used for the purposes detailed in this policy. If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy please let us know.
We make every effort to protect your private information although we can not take any responsibility in relation to unlawful access of our systems. Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site. If this policy should change in the future, we will notify our members and the date of last revision will be shown at the top of this page. Members of this website will be provided an opportunity to comment on any changes that are considered to significantly change the way information is collected or used.
We do not market to children (i.e. any person under 18 years of age).
The following is a list of the information we may collect and why it is necessary:

3 Advertising accounts
Advertising accounts are required if members wish to access advertising services. Account information is used to manage these services. Credit card details are never actually received by us. The page where credit card information is given by you is controlled by our contract merchant service provider (PayPal). Such information is automatically encrypted, and later decrypted for use. Credit card details are not collected or stored by our system.
4 Your profile and public webpage
The information you share as part of your profile will be visible to other members. Your published webpage will be visible to all users. Your private contact details are not displayed unless you choose to share such information as part of your user profile or webpage. Information, which does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class information, for example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service. Some of this information is classified as sensitive information by the Australian Data Protection Acts. We make the assumption that in giving this information to us, you consent to our holding it for the duration of your membership.
5 Information volunteered by you
For a particular purpose, for example a member profile, survey, job application form, or contest. This information will be used exclusively for the purpose for which you have provided it. Information is disclosed to third parties only where the third party concerned qualifies in whatever way the website page requires. We will make absolutely clear on the face of the page, any intention to publicise the name of a winner.
6 Affiliate information
This is any information given to us by any party as part of an affiliate agreement. Such information is retained for business use only. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our affiliate relationships. This information is used:
6.1 to maintain our accounts and affiliate records;
6.2 to enable us to answer your enquiries;
6.3 for verifying your identity for security purposes;
6.4 to send you news about the services to which you have signed up;
6.5 to tell you about other services provided by us;
6.6 for billing (if applicable).
7 Third-Party Advertising
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website so that we can continue providing this service. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If we use one of these companies, more information about their practices and your choices about not having this information used by these companies will be made available from this page.
8 Disclosure to Government
And their agencies. We are subject to the law like everyone else. We may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.
9 Information request
At any time you may review or update the personally identifiable information that we hold about you from your account and profile or, by contacting us. To better safeguard your information, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections to your information.
This confidentiality policy has been compiled to comply with best practice, so far as we are aware. If you have any question regarding the policy please contact us.
