Privacy Statement

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us.

 Australis Solar operates the australissolar.com.au website. It is Australis Solar’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information it may collect while operating its website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Australis Solar 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.

Australis Solar’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Australis Solar’s visitors use the website. From time to time, Australis Solar may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Australis Solar also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on its blog. Australis Solar 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Australis Solar’s websites choose to interact with Australis Solar in ways that require Australis Solar to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Australis Solar gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Australis Solar collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Australis Solar. Australis Solar does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Australis Solar may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Australis Solar may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Australis Solar may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Australis Solar does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Australis Solar discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that:-

  1. need to know that information in order to process it on Australis Solar’s behalf or to provide services available at Australis Solar’s websites, and
  2. 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 Australis Solar’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Australis Solar 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, Australis Solar discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Australis Solar believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Australis Solar, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of the Australis Solar website and have supplied your email address, Australis Solar 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 Australis Solar and its services. Australis Solar primarily uses its blog to communicate this type of information, so Australis Solar expects to keep this type of email to a minimum.

If you send Australis Solar a request (for example via a support email or via one of the feedback mechanisms), Australis Solar reserves the right to publish it in order to help Australis Solar to clarify or respond to your request or to help Australis Solar support other users. Australis Solar takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Australis Solar uses cookies to help Australis Solar identify and track visitors, their usage of the Australis Solar website, and their website access preferences. Australis Solar visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Australis Solar’s website, with the drawback that certain features of Australis Solar’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Australis Solar, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Australis Solar 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 Australis Solar may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on the website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognise your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Australis Solar and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Australis Solar may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Australis Solar’s sole discretion. Australis Solar encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
