It is Margaret River Central’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Margaret River Central collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Margaret River Central’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how Margaret River Central’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Margaret River Central may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Margaret River Central also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in customers and for customers leaving comments on Margaret River Central.com.au blog. Margaret River Central only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the Margaret River Central website choose to interact with Margaret River Central in ways that require Margaret River Central to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Margaret River Central gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, those who engage in transactions with Margaret River Central – by purchasing access to the hosting service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. Margaret River Central collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Margaret River Central. Margaret River Central does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Margaret River Central may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. Margaret River Central may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Margaret River Central does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Margaret River Central discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Margaret River Central’s behalf or to provide services available at the Margaret River Central website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Margaret River Central website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Margaret River Central will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Margaret River Central discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Margaret River Central believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Margaret River Central, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Margaret River Central Managed Service and have supplied your email address, Margaret River Central may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Margaret River Central and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other customers. Margaret River Central takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Margaret River Central, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Margaret River Central goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Margaret River Central may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
