This policy explains how we collect, use, retain and disclose the personal information that you provide us through scurry.com.au or our affiliate websites, or through the course of our other business dealings with you.
In addition, please note your Personal Information may be processed in the country in which it was collected, and in other countries where laws about the processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than other countries.
“Personal Information” for the purposes of privacy law is information about an identifiable individual, such as their name, address, telephone number and email address. Personal Information does not include aggregated information that is anonymous, such as the type of browser you are using, or other non-personally identifiable information.
Who we are
Our website address is https://scurry.com.au and is run by Nichola Scurry.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We require your consent to collect, use or disclose your Personal Information, subject to certain exceptions in the law.
Collection: We typically collect your Personal Information when you subscribe to our newsletters or submit an inquiry through the “Contact” form on the site.
Use: We may use your information to contact you for marketing or other purposes.
Protection: Only individuals involved in the administration of the website’s operations have access to your Personal Information. Currently, this is only me, Nichola Scurry. Despite our best efforts, Internet or wireless transmissions are never completely private or secure. In that respect, you hereby acknowledge and accept the potential risk of inadvertent disclosure due to any such disclosure beyond our reasonable control. In addition, please note some of our service providers may be located in countries where authorised government officials may lawfully be able to access your Personal Information without your knowledge or consent pursuant to the laws of such countries.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form. We also collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
