Privacy Policy

ITC is commited to your privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: www.biaustralia.com.au.

Information is collected when you sign up for a service that we provide. We may use customer contact information from the registration form to send the user information about our company and promotional material from our carefully selected partners. Users may opt-out of receiving future communications from us; please see the choice/opt-out section below. Your contact information and personal data is never released to our partners or advertisers. Demographic and profile data collected at our site is used to tailor the visitor's experience at our site. By knowing a little about our users, we are able to deliver more relevant content and advertisements, and hence a better service, to you. Any demographic and profile data is disclosed only as aggregated user statistics (eg. 50% of our users are male) in order to describe our services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for lawful purposes.

We also run contests on our site in which we ask contestants for their contact information (like e-mail addresses) and demographic information (like age). We may use contact data from our contests to send users information about our company and promotional material from our carefully selected partners. Your contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary, for instance, to inform you about the procedures for the collection of your prize. Your contact information and personal data may also be released to the co-sponsors of the contests to facilitate the collection of prizes. Other than for the purposes described above, your contact information and personal data is never released to our partners or advertisers. Any demographic and profile data is disclosed only as aggregated user statistics to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for lawful purposes.

Data exchanged between ourselves and our members across our network is stored and monitored for the purpose of providing quality control over our product and to ensure that our service is not being used to conduct illegal activity that may or may not be a threat to our web site, our company and/or our member base.
