- Our websites and any subsidiary company websites (which we operate)
The information in our websites is prepared in accordance with the laws of the State of Western Australia, and the Commonwealth of Australia. The websites may not comply with the laws of any other country.
While we try to make sure there are no mistakes in the information on our website, we do not warrant the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of the information or that it is suitable for your intended use. So we recommend that you seek independent advice before acting on any information on our websites.
Also, all information is subject to change without notice.
If your browser is set up correctly, it should tell you whether the information you are sending us is secure (encrypted) or not (unencrypted). If it is secure, we currently use 128 bit SSL encryption.
Although we regularly review developments in security and encryption, we do not guarantee that information transmitted over the internet is totally secure. Therefore, when you send us information (including via an on-line form or product), you do so at your own risk. Once we have received it, we take reasonable steps to keep the information secure while it is in our own systems.
Your use of our website is at your own risk. We do not guarantee that our websites are free from viruses, or that access to our sites will be uninterrupted. You should therefore ensure that the way you access our websites does not expose your equipment to the risk of viruses or other forms of interference which may damage it.
When you use our websites, we may collect personal information about you. Ordinarily, we tell you the purposes for which we collect that information when it is collected.
As a general rule, we only collect such information which is necessary for us to provide a product or service to you or to maintain our relationship with you.
The information we collect about you depends on how you use our websites and may involve the use of “cookies”, as explained below.
7.1 What is a “cookie”?
A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer hard drive by our web page server and which we can later access. Cookies are frequently used on websites and you can choose if and how your computer accepts them by configuring your preferences and options in your browser.
- We allocate a cookie to your internet browser if you visit our websites (including if you visit an unsecured area – such as one which does not require you to log on to the relevant page). The cookie allows us to:
- Allocate a User identification number to your internet browser
- Determine if you have previously visited our website
- Identify pages you have accessed and third party websites you have visited
So, if you want to make full use of our websites, you need to set up your browser to accept cookies. You may still be able to use some information-only pages if you choose not to accept cookies.
8.1 Monitoring our advertising effectiveness
We use several advertising companies for our online advertising. This often involves displaying a banner advertisement on a third party website.
- The server your computer is logged onto
- Your browser type
- The date and time of your visit.
Also, when you visit our website after following a link from one of our advertisements on a third party website, information is collected on how you use our website. This might include which pages you view, and whether you start and complete an online application.
In each case, the information is collected principally so that the effectiveness of the advertising can be measured.
We may also share with other third parties cookie information, information about your preferences or other information you have given the third party. We do not ordinarily share any personal information which could identify you, without your consent.
The tracking companies aggregate all the information and use it to study internet user behaviour patterns. They do not include personal information in their studies and use the information mainly to measure advertising effectiveness and relative consumer interest in the various areas of our websites. As a general rule, no personal information is collected during the tracking process. However, if any personal information is collected by these automated processes, our arrangements with the tracking companies require them to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of that information.
We store the content of any email you send us. We may monitor the content for security issues – such as where email abuse is suspected. Our reply to you may also be monitored to help us meet our quality assurance goals.
Our websites may contain links to other websites operated by third parties. We do not endorse or otherwise approve the owners or operators of the third party websites, or the information, graphics and material on those websites or the goods or services (including software) offered on those websites.
Unless we tell you otherwise, any software you download from a third party website is their product and not ours.
To the extent permitted by law, we are not responsible or liable for, and give no warranty in respect of, any third party website or the goods and services (including software) offered on any third party website. .
To the extent permitted by law, neither we, nor any of our employees, agents or officers are liable to you for any loss or liability arising from, or any costs, charges or expenses you incur in connection with:
- Information on our websites;
- Your use of our websites; and
- Any modification, suspension or discontinuance of our websites.
This limitation applies whether your claim would otherwise arise in contract, under the law of torts (including negligence), by statute or otherwise.
Our liability for a breach of a condition or warranty implied by law or otherwise, and which cannot be excluded, is limited to the extent possible, at our option, to:
- The supply of the goods or services again
- The repair of the goods, or
- The payment of the cost of having the goods or services supplied again or repaired.
