Privacy Policy Statement

This is the web site of Get The Word Out .

Introduction

This statement sets out important information about privacy protections that we extend to personal information you provide to us through our web site.

This page explains the type of information that is collected by us, how such information is used, and under what circumstances and to whom it may be disclosed.

Information collected:

Your email address
Your email address will be recorded should you purchase services or products from this web site, or if you provide feedback through any of our online forms. Your email address may be used to make contact regarding your transaction if the need arises. It may also be used to contact you about changes to the services offered on this web site. We will not use or disclose your email address for any other purpose, without your prior written consent. It will not be shared with other organisations for commercial purposes.

Other Contact Information
Information provided to Get The Word Out will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and is not disclosed to any other party unless stated as otherwise. Client contact information is kept to process transactions. It will not be published or passed on to anyone.

Data collected in our logs
When you visit this web site, our Web Hosting Provider makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes. This includes your server address, top-level domain name (for example .com, .gov, .au, .uk etc), the date and time of visit to the site, the pages accessed and documents downloaded, the previous site visited, and the type of browser used. No attempt will be made to identify you or your browsing activities. This information is aggregated and used internally to improve the content of our web pages.

Credit card information:

If you choose to pay for a service or product using the secure credit card payment facility available at this site you will be asked to provide your credit card details, your name, an address and your email address. These details are required to verify the validity of your credit card, produce a tax invoice / receipt and send a confirmation of the transaction.

Get The Word Out does not store credit card details. Credit Card payments are made using the Paypal secure banking system. Credit Card information is held only by Paypal. Get The Word Out never has access to this information. Paypal employs industry standard 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) security technology. SSL is cryptography technology that uses special codes (public and private keys) that encrypt credit card details and personal details sent over the Internet. SSL encryption turns these details into an unintelligible string of characters and symbols and makes it virtually impossible to decipher. In addition, if a message is somehow tampered with, SSL technology will detect the tampering and reject the message.

Changes to our Policy:

From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our Web site periodically.

Customers may prevent their information from being used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected by calling us on (03) 8398 0863.
