Collection of your Personal Information
The Website collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number.
The Website also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your post code, age, gender and Website preferences.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by the Website. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by the Website for the operation of its services, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through the Website's public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.
Use of your Personal Information
Gurtong is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from those disclosed in this Privacy Statement.
This Website does not collect personally identifying information about you except when you specifically and knowingly provide it.
Gurtong may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners or providers about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information is not transferred to a third party.
In addition, the Website may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to the Website, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
The Website does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion or political affiliations without your explicit consent.
Gurtong keeps track of the pages its visitors visit within the Website in order to determine which Website services are the most popular.
This data is used to deliver customised content and advertising within the Website to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Gurtong will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
(a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the Website;
(b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Website; and
(c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Website, or the public.
The Website uses 'cookies' to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server.
Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise the Website pages, or register with the Website, a cookie helps the Website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on.
When you return to the same Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Website features that you have customised.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer.
If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Website or other websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
The Website secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. The Website secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Privacy Statement
Gurtong will occasionally update this Privacy Statement to reflect company and customer feedback. Gurtong encourages you to periodically review this Privacy Statement to be informed of how the Website is protecting your information.
Gurtong welcomes your comments regarding this Privacy Statement. If you believe that the Website has not adhered to this Privacy Statement, please contact Gurtong. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
