COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY
bmag is committed to protecting your privacy while interacting with our site. We want to provide a safe and secure environment for all. Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address or information about what you like and do not like. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not. We will only use any personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it.
THE INFORMATION COLLECTED
The bmag website collects two types of information. The first type is anonymous information. The web server makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes:
- The user’s server address
- The user’s top level domain name (e.g. com, .gov, .net, .au, etc.)
- The date of your visit to the site
- The pages accessed and documents downloaded
- The previous site visited, and
- The type of browser used
- Domain site cookies
No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except, in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law-enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the internet service provider’s logs.
The second type of information that bmag collects is personal information. Personal information is requested in order to provide personalised and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users. Personal information requested in this site includes:
- email address – we will record your email address if you send us a message, subscribe to an email newsletter, or complete a form where this information is requested. If subscribing to an email newsletter you may “unsubscribe” at any time from the newsletter mailing list. Email addresses will not be added to any other mailing lists. We will not disclose your email address without your consent unless required to by law.
- name, address and phone number – the website includes forms where name, address and mobile phone number are requested. In these cases, personal details are required to enable subsequent contact with you and/or to enable authentication of the information provided. We will not collect or solicit personal information via this website that would be unlawful, unnecessary or unrelated to the functions or activities of bmag, or unfair or unreasonably intrusive. Because there are risks associated with using the internet as a transmission medium, when we use electronic forms to collect information we will also provide you with other options for providing the information – for example, a paper form and mailing address and a telephone contact.
