Protecting your personal and order information is a priority at DTAC. We want you to be able to order from DTAC.com.au with total confidence. As such we have created a secure transaction environment. We use Secure Sockets Layer (128-bit SSL) technology. Our On-line Ordering system is the industry standard for encryption technology to protect your online order information. SSL encrypts all information including your credit card and all personal information passed from you to dtac.com.au. Encryption provides you with security and peace of mind when your browser and local network supports the use of encrypted data transmissions. dtac.com.au gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
DEFINITION OF THE INFORMATION
dtac.com.au gathers two types of information about users. Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions (these are voluntary submissions to complete an order) and information dtac.com.au gathers through aggregated tracking information which is derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs and to help us better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does dtac.com.au divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
dtac.com.au gathers user information in the following processes:
- Optional Voluntary Information
dtac.com.au gathers the email addresses and contact details of users who place orders. This information is not used for any other purpose other than to deliver the orders placed, or correspond with the user to enable the user to place the correct order.
- Usage Tracking
dtac.com.au tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. dtac.com.au does break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).dtac.com.au sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
USE OF INFORMATION
dtac.com.au uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. dtac.com.au never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas, we do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don’t track which terms a particular user enters.
dtac.com.au creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs. Because we don’t track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
