We only allow this access to those who reasonably need access to achieve the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

Please note that payment information is directed to a third party (PayPal). Payment details are not collected on the Site.

Security of Personal Information

Your Personal Information is stored in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification, or disclosure.

When your Personal Information is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was obtained, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your Personal Information.

However, most of the Personal Information of a transactional nature is, or will be stored in files which will be kept by us for a minimum time required by Australian Business Law.

While we take all reasonable precautions to ensure that personal information is secure, there always remains the risk of unauthorised access. The Internet can be insecure at times and therefore we are unable to guarantee the security of personal information beyond what is reasonably practical.
