It provides information about the personal information we collect and the ways in which we use that personal information.

How we collect information
Generally we collect personal information when you voluntarily provide it to us, for example:
- when you contact us or subscribe to our services by telephone, sms, email or via our website;
- when you update an on-line profile or subscription that includes personal information such as your name and contact details; and
- when you enter your personal information into forms, surveys or questionnaires on our website.
We may also collect personal information through publicly available records, such as from social media.
Whenever you use our web site, or any other web site, the computer on which the web pages are stored (the Web server) needs to know the network address of your computer so that it can send the requested web pages to your Internet browser. The unique network address of your computer is called its “IP address,” and is sent automatically each time you access any Internet site. From a computer’s IP address, it is possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer, but otherwise it is anonymous.
We do not keep a record of the IP addresses from which users access our site except where you have specifically provided us with information about yourself, in which case we also record your IP address for security purposes. An example of this would be when proceeding to a checkout to finalise an order you may wish to make. After completing the form provided, your IP address will be stored along with a transaction number that allows us to track your order.
When you read, browse or download information from our web site, we or our internet service provider may also collect information such as the date, time and duration of a visit, the pages accessed, and any information downloaded.
Finally, we may also use web beacons to track the visiting patterns of individuals accessing our Website. Web beacons are images that originate from a third party site to track visitor activities.
