  • by other parties providing it to us either voluntarily or pursuant to compulsory processes we conduct on our customer’s behalf.

  • Customer comments
  • Product reviews
  • Media
  • Contact form information
  • Cookies
  • Embedded content from other websites
  • Analytics

Comments and Reviews:

When Visitors leave comments or reviews on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form and also the Visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

When users submit feedback or questions via our contact forms, we will request their name and email address and some personal circus information. We use this information solely to respond to the Visitor enquiries and communicate with them and this information will not be shared with a third party except when required to fulfill the Visitor’s request.


If Visitors upload images to the website, they should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If Visitors leave a comment on our site they may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for the Visitor’s convenience so that they do not have to fill in their details again when they leave another comment. These cookies will last for up to one year.

If Visitors have an account and log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When Visitors log in, we will also set up several cookies to save their login information and their screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If Visitors select “Remember Me”, their login will persist for two weeks or more depending on their browser’s settings. If users log out of their account, the login cookies will be removed.

If Visitors edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in their browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article they just edited. It expires after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles and products on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the Visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about Visitors, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor Visitor interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Our website logs non personally identifiable information about our Visitors, their locations, user actions, and IP addresses. This data is captured by Google and only used for analytics. This data is not shared with any other third parties besides Google.

Security Capabilities and Policy for Transmission of Payment Card Details

Credit card data is shared with Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, American Express, JCB, Apple Pay, and/or Google Pay through Stripe and/or PayPal.

Personal information may be received and held either as a hard copy, paper, or a soft copy being electronic data, in any available form including our web server, other cloud servers and on local computer drives.

We use cyber-security systems to protect soft copy documents. This information may be held indefinitely.

  • a reasonable person would conclude that the access or disclosure would be likely to result in serious harm to any of the individuals to whom the information relates; or
  • the information is lost in circumstances where:
  • unauthorised access to, or unauthorised disclosure of, the information is likely to occur; and
  • assuming that unauthorised access to, or unauthorised disclosure of, the information were to occur, a reasonable person would conclude that the access or disclosure would be likely to result in serious harm to any of the individuals to whom the information relates;…


If there is a suspicion of a breach

If we suspect that there has been an eligible data breach, a reasonable and expeditious assessment will be conducted within 30 days.

  • the business’s details;
  • a description of the breach;
  • the kind or kinds of information concerned; and
  • recommendations about the steps that we will take in response to it.

If practicable, we will advise the contents of the statement to each of the affected customers who may be at risk from the breach. If this is not practicable we will publish the statement on our website and take other reasonable steps to publicise its contents. Communications with individuals will be via their preferred communication method.

The statement will be submitted to the Privacy Commissioner.
