Barossa Views Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is important to Barossa Views. To help you understand how Barossa Views works to protect your privacy, this notice explains its online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your personal information that you submit from the Site is collected and used.
The Information Barossa Views Collects
On some pages on the Site, you can make requests for information and send e-mail messages.
The types of personal information collected at these pages may include:
- E-mail address
- Phone numbers
On other pages of the Site, the web server at Barossa Views collects “cookies”. The purpose of these is to provide you with a customised service from a more effective website. A “cookie” is a text file that the Barossa Views web server places on your computer while you browse the Site. The Barossa Views web server can later retrieve these cookies if you visit again.
The Barossa Views web server allocates a cookie to each Internet browser that visits the Site. This cookie does not allow Barossa Views to collect any personally identifiable information about you. The Barossa Views web server uses this cookie:
- to allocate an unique identification number to your Internet browser (although we cannot identify you from this information);
- to identify pages you have accessed on the Site;
- to determine if you have previously visited the Site;
- to ensure that any customised settings that you made in a previous visit are retrieved.
If you wish to make full use of the Site, you should configure your Internet browser to accept cookies. If you do not, you will not have the benefit of some of these customised features.
General Information about your Visit to the Site
When you visit the Site even if your Internet browser is not configured to accept cookies, the Barossa Views web server makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes:
- the IP address of your server;
- your top level domain name (eg. .gov, .com, .org, etc);
- the previous site that you visited;
- the type of Internet browser that you are using.
Barossa Views will not attempt to identify users or their browsing activities without their consent. However in the unlikely event of an investigation, a law enforcement agency might exercise its legal authority to inspect the Barossa Views web server’s logs.
Use of Personal Information
Barossa Views will only use personal information that you submit using the Site for the following purposes:
- to answer any information request that you make;
- if you choose to permit us to do so, to send you promotional and other information about Barossa Views, their products and services, either by e-mail or by some other means;
- for security purposes;
- to comply with any legal requirement.
If you complete an online form on the Site, Barossa Views will only receive the information you enter, if you actually submit the form. If you do not submit the form (for example if you log out of the form before submitting the information), the information you have entered on the form up to that point will not be received by the Barossa Views web server. However it may be stored by the Internet browser on the computer you are using, and you should check the settings on the computer you are using, especially if third parties can access it.
Barossa Views will not share any personal information that it collects from the Site with third parties without your consent unless:
- it is required by law or for law enforcement;
- it is necessary to protect the rights or property of Barossa Views, any user of the Site, or any member of the public; or
- it is necessary to lessen a serious and imminent threat to a person’s health safety or welfare, or a serious threat to public health or safety.
Barossa Views will not, without your consent, disclose or use the information for a secondary purpose except where that other purpose is related to the purpose for which you gave us the information, and there is a reasonable expectation that Barossa Views would disclose or use the information in those circumstances.
Failure to provide Barossa Views with requested personal information might restrict Barossa Views’ ability to deliver any requested information to you.
How Barossa Views handles E-mail
Barossa Views will save any e-mail or other inquiry that you send to Barossa Views using the Site, if Barossa Views believes that it has a legal requirement to do so.
The Site provides some facilities for the secure transmission of information across the Internet by use of an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Certificate. However you should be aware that there are risks associated with transmitting information over the Internet, and that no one can guarantee that information passing over the Internet will not be intercepted or used by unauthorised third parties.
To prevent unauthorised access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information that it has collected from users of the Site, Barossa Views has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Accessing and changing your Personal Information
You can access your personal information that Barossa Views collects online and maintains, by Contacting Barossa Views. Barossa Views uses this procedure to better safeguard your information.
You can ask Barossa Views to correct factual errors in your personal information by sending Barossa Views a request that credibly shows the error.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
Barossa Views is committed to providing individuals with a fair and responsive system for handling and resolving complaints about their privacy. If at any time you wish to lodge a complaint in respect of Barossa Views handling, use or disclosure of your personal information collected from the Site, you may notify Barossa Views of your complaint by Contacting Barossa Views.
