Information we collect

1. Unregistered users

You must be registered with us in order to add a review or comment on an existing review. However, you may choose not to register and take advantage of any other feature of our Site where registration is not required.

We log your IP address in order to help diagnose problems with our systems, administer our Site and track usage statistics. We will make no attempt to identify you through your IP address. If you reached our Site by clicking on a link or advertisement on another site, then we also log that information. This information is collected and used only in the aggregate where we can use it to generate overall reports on our visitors, but not reports about individual visitors.

We also place a small file known as a "cookie" on your computer's hard drive. A cookie may contain information that allows us to track your path through our Site and to determine whether you have visited us before. Unless you register with us, it contains no personally identifiable information that would allow us to identify you. Cookies cannot be used to read data off of your hard drive, and cannot retrieve information from any other cookies created by other websites. We use cookies to help us understand how visitors use our website, and to help us to improve our content. You can refuse to accept a cookie from us by following the procedures specific to your web browser.

2. Registered users

If you choose to register with us, you'll be able to add content to our site. For example, you may post your own reviews and add comments to existing reviews.

If you register with us, we will collect personal information from you in addition to the non-personal information described above. That personal information may include the information you manually enter into our forms such as your name, email address, username and password. We may store all or some of that information in a cookie file on your hard drive, so that our system will recognise you each time you visit our site. In that way, we can save your preferences without requiring you to log in every time you visit.

How we use the personal information we collect

Registering with us allows you add a new review or comment on an existing review. It also gives you the options to automatically log in to our site each time you visit, rather than typing your user name and password each time. We may also use your personal information to periodically contact you with news or important information from reviewatradie.com.au. In addition to these periodic updates we may email you additional materials but only if you specifically request them. These might include opt-in newsletters and other materials that you proactively request from reviewatradie.com.au.

You may opt-out of any or all marketing that we send by emailing info@reviewatradie.com.au or following the opt-out instructions in the material.

You can cancel your registration with us by e-mailing info@reviewatradie.com.au. We will send you an e-mail to confirm your request. After we receive confirmation, we will remove your information from our active database, but some information may remain in our archives for an additional period of time before being deleted.

We will provide only the information required. We may also provide information about you to legal authorities if we believe we must in order to prevent a violation of the law, and by accepting this policy, you consent to our doing so, in our sole discretion. You also consent to our disclosing information about you in the course of legal proceedings if we are legally required to do so, if we reasonably believe that doing so may mitigate our liability, or if doing so will assist us in enforcing our legal rights.

Steps we take to protect your personal information

reviewatradie.com.au has implemented security procedures to help protect the personal information stored in our systems. For example, we limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information. We also employ processes (such as password hashing, login auditing, and idle session termination) to protect against unauthorized access to your personal information. While we implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal information and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to personal information there is no way for us to guarantee the absolute security of your personal information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change this policy should we deem it advisable to do so. If we make material changes that will affect personal information we have already collected from you, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you of the changes and to give you the opportunity to amend or cancel your registration.
