- Personal information provided by users through any other method;
- Personal information collected by us through click tracking in relation to your use of the Website, including the content you access;
- Aggregated data, which tracks traffic to the Website but does not relate to you personally; and

This personal information may include:

- The internet sites and services you have visited and the frequency of those visits
- Data about your usage of the Website
Wherever it is lawful and practicable, we will endeavour to provide you with the option of not identifying yourself or not providing personal information when entering into transactions with us. However, failure to provide necessary personal information when requested may result in certain submissions by you not being successful or requests by you being unable to be answered.
Any personal information that you provide to us will be held by us at our premises.
Purposes for which we collect, use and disclose your information:
The personal information you provide will be used to evaluate and/or respond to your request or submission only. Any personal information that we collect from you will not otherwise be sold or swapped to any third parties. We may also disclose personal information in circumstances where we are authorised or required to do so by law and in circumstances where we consider it appropriate to do so in order to ensure that laws are complied with.
Disclosure of personal information overseas:
Please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored and processed in Australia, where our servers are located and our central database is operated.
In addition, we may disclose some of your personal information to organisations outside Australia if we consider it is appropriate to do so in order for us to most efficiently supply the Website and other associated goods or services, as well as respond to any voluntary submissions or requests made by you via the Website.
The organisations are worldwide and you warrant that you understand that they may not have the same or substantially similar privacy laws as those in Australia.
Australian Privacy Principle 8.1 does not apply to the disclosure, but you nonetheless consent to the disclosure of your personal information overseas.
