HotShed Systems Pty Ltd and its related companies comply with the National Privacy Principles. To that end, we offer this statement to inform our users of how we gather and utilise personal information. HotShed will take all reasonable steps to protect user privacy, consistent with the National Privacy Principles.
HotShed gathers personal information about our users in two different ways:
HotShed and its related companies may use personal information collected online to develop and improve the products, benefits and services we offer to our members, customers or website users. HotShed may also use email addresses or other personal information to contact users who directly communicate with us. For example, HotShed may contact users to notify them that they have won a contest or to provide a requested email newsletter.
HotShed may also use its customer database, including information provided by you through this website, to distribute information about other HotShed services and other organisations' services to you.
Aspects of these functions may be outsourced to third parties, who are only authorised by HotShed to use this information for these purposes. HotShed may also disclose personal information to law enforcement agencies, government agencies, courts or external advisors where permitted or required by law.
HotShed's policy is to provide you with the opportunity to limit the use and/or disclosure of your personal information. You may do this when you register via the registration page on this website, or at any time when you receive email communications from us, or at any other time by written notice to HotShed. If at any time you no longer wish to receive email or postal communications from HotShed or from third parties, you can contact HotShed customer service at any time and make an 'opt out' request, as per details at the end of this Statement.
Each time you visit HotShed's website, anonymous navigation information is collected by our servers. This information includes:
This information provides HotShed with statistics about how the website is used and navigated, including the number of hits, the frequency of visits and the duration of visits to each web page on the site. It does not personally identify individual users unless the user has previously elected to identify themselves by submitting personal information.
Information collected on this site may also be combined and de-identified to provide HotShed with anonymous demographic and usage information. HotShed can then use this aggregated information to develop new and/or more appropriate services and products to offer to customers and may also be provided to third parties.
Other than as described above, HotShed will not make an attempt to identify users or their browsing activities. However, in the unlikely event of an investigation, a law enforcement agency or other government agency may exercise its legal authority to inspect our Internet Service Provider's logs.
If you wish to complain about our use of your personal information, please contact:
