Using your personal information

However, we may use your personal information to provide you with information or services you request, and in tailoring your experience of our site to your interests. With your consent, we will send you updates on new features, products and content that we think you are likely to be interested in.

We may also use pooled information obtained from all our visitors to understand our users' interests and improve our services. These reports may be shared with our business associates who assist us in providing some or all of the services but the information in them is de-identified and they will not otherwise disclose personally identifiable information.

Disclosure

We will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except in circumstances where:

  •  We have permission to do so; or
  • For the primary purposes for which the personal information was collected or for any direct or indirect secondary purposes: or
  • Under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires disclosure or where we believe it necessary to provide you with a service which you have requested.

Like many businesses, we use a range of service providers to help us maximise the quality and efficiency of our services and our business operations. This means that individuals and organisations other than our organisation, such as Web hosting services, will sometimes have access to personal information held by us and may use it on our behalf. We require our service providers to adhere to privacy guidelines and not to keep this information or use it for any unauthorised.

You can access and change the information we keep about you

If at any time you want to know exactly what personal information we hold about you, you are welcome to access your record by emailing us. We will, except in special circumstances, make our file of your personal information available to you.
