B2B Technologies has always upheld the standard for privacy protection and continues to be dedicated to protecting your personal information. From 21 December 2001, the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 will give you certain rights in relation to how your personal information is handled. The National Privacy Principles governs the collection, use, storage and disclosure of personal and sensitive information. The following statement addresses relevant privacy issues:
The type of information that we collect from you will depend on what products and services you acquire from B2B Technologies. We may obtain personal information through our web site, by e-mail, by telephone, by written responses or through personal visits by our staff. In a few areas on our web site we ask you to provide information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. This information enables us to assist you with technical support issues, to respond to any product enquiries, to enable you to download any information from our web site, to enable you to subscribe to B2B Technologies Blog or News, or to follow up with you after your visit. Generally the information we ask you to provide is restricted to your name, your telephone number, your company name and address, and your e-mail address. It is optional for you to provide us with your personal information.
As a standard practice, we do not give or share any personally identifiable or private customer information with third parties, unless they are acting as an intermediary. Examples of such intermediaries include our franchises, dealers and sales agents. In all cases these intermediaries will be required to keep confidential the personal information provided by you. The personal information we collect is used only for the purposes stated to support your customer relationship with B2B Technologies. Among other things, we want to help you obtain product and company information. We may use direct marketing to alert you to special offers, new products and services. If at any time you do not wish to receive further marketing information, you have the option to ask us not to send it to you and not to disclose your information to our intermediaries for that purpose. You may do this by contacting our Privacy officer at: email@example.com or on telephone 1300 213 074.
All stored customer information is retained on a secure server and is protected from unauthorised access through the use of fire-walls, secure passwords, user logins or other security procedures. However, we would like to emphasise the fact that the Internet is not a secure environment. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are on-line. If you post personal information on-line that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties. While we strive to protect your personal information, B2B Technologies cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us via the Internet, and you do so at your own risk. We intend to destroy or de-identify the information you provided to us if it is no longer required for the purpose it was obtained for.
We aim to ensure that the personal information we hold about you is current and accurate. If you think that the information is inaccurate, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or on telephone number 1300 213 704, and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that it is corrected.
Wherever possible we will let you see the personal information we hold about you in order to verify it is correct. Please feel free to contact our Privacy officer at: email@example.com or on telephone number 1300 213 704 if you have any questions, complaints, comments or would like more information concerning how we handle your personal information or any other privacy issues.
