These social as the service partner sites have their own privacy policies.
We may collect this information when you communicate with us through the Websites, by telephone, by e-mail or through a written application. In some circumstances the collection of personal information may be required by law.

We may send you such information by email, telephone, SMS text message and/or any other form of electronic messages, post, fax or smartphone applications, social networking websites, Web 2.0 or any other method which becomes relevant from time to time.
When you provide us with information about yourself, you will usually be given the option to let us know that you do not want that information to be used for direct marketing purposes whether by ourselves or by any third party (including our commercial partners). If you do not take up that option, you will be taken to have agreed to the use of your information for marketing and promotional purposes.
You can change your mind about your direct marketing preferences at any time by contacting us using our contact details listed below. In addition, if you receive direct marketing from us by email or SMS message, you will be reminded in the email or SMS message that you are able to request a change to your preferences.
We may disclose personal information to the following third parties for the purposes listed above:
but only for the purpose of providing goods or services to us, and

When we disclose personal information to third parties, we make all reasonable efforts to ensure that we disclose only relevant information and that it is accurate, complete and up to date and that the third party will comply with the Privacy Act in relation to the use, disclosure and storage of your information.
We may disclose personal information in other circumstances, where the person concerned has consented to the disclosure, or where we are expressly permitted to do so by the Privacy Act or another law. These other disclosures may include where:
All Logmaster data is stored in Australia.

We use session cookies for maintaining contact with a user throughout a web browsing session. Session cookies expire when the browsing session comes to an end or a user shuts down their computer.
We use persistent cookies for statistical purposes and to improve our Websites.
The website communications generated from using and/or registering on this Website, such as promotional emails, may contain electronic images known as “web beacons”. Web beacons generally work in conjunction with cookies, and we may use them with cookies to, for example, count the number of visitors to the Websites or see whether you have acted on an email or clicked on a link, for example where this is a condition of entering a competition.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Websites (including their IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of compiling reports on the Websites’ activity and providing other services relating to the Websites and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

When you visit our Websites, a record is made of your visit, including the following information:
We analyse this non-identifiable Website traffic data (including through the use of third party service providers) on an aggregated basis to improve our services and for statistical purposes.
No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the Internet Service Provider’s log files.
The Websites may link to other websites which are outside our control, and other websites outside our control may link to the Websites. Whilst we try to ensure that we link only to websites which share our privacy and security standards, once you have left the Websites we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide on other websites. You should exercise caution and review the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
We regard the security of your personal information as a priority and implement a number of physical and electronic measures to protect it. We remind you, however, that if you send information to the Websites, the internet is not a secure environment and although all care is taken by us, we cannot guarantee the security of information you provide to us via electronic means.
We have processes in place to ensure that our records remain accurate, complete and up to date, including by verifying your personal information with you each time you use our services or from other sources.
If the information is no longer required by us for any purpose for which it was collected and is no longer required by law to be retained by us, we will destroy or de-identify the information.
We have measures in place to ensure that the information we hold about individuals is accurate, complete and up to date. If you learn that personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete or not up to date, you should contact us so that your information can be updated.
If you wish to see what information we hold about you, you can ask us for a copy.
Sometimes it may not be possible to give you a copy of the information if it was provided anonymously, if it contains details about other people, or if it would be unsafe to provide the information (for instance, if it may lead to harm being done to another person).
If we refuse to provide you with access to your record or to update your record in the way you request, we will provide you with written reasons.
If we refuse to correct or update your information, you may request that we make a note on your record that you are of the opinion that the information is inaccurate, incomplete, out of date, irrelevant or misleading, as the case may be.
There is no charge for requesting access to your personal information, but we may require you to meet our reasonable costs in providing you with access (such as photocopying costs or costs for time spent on collating large amounts of material).
You will be notified of any likely costs before your request is processed.
If you have a complaint or concern regarding our handling of your personal information or think that your privacy has been affected, you should contact us using our contact details set out below to raise your complaint or concern.
If you remain unsatisfied with the way in which we have handled your privacy complaint or concern, you may approach an independent advisor or contact the OAIC. See the OAIC website for more information about how to make a complaint.
