practices for this website: www.biaustralia.com.au.
Information is collected when you sign up for a

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 at any time by contacting us with an opt-out
request. Your contact information and personal data
is never released to our partners or advertisers.

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.

across our network is stored and monitored for the
