Privacy Policy

LINUS is committed to protecting consumer privacy online. We believe that greater protection of personal privacy on the web will not only protect consumers, but also increase consumer confidence and ultimately their participation in online activities. At LINUS, we intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information and strive to help you protect your privacy while using our services.

The purpose of our policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you when you visit our site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information. Please read this notice. By using this site, you signify your assent to our privacy policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our site.

I. Information Which We Collect and the What We Do With the Collected Information

LINUS may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information, including your name, company, postal address, fixed and mobile telephone numbers and e-mail address. LINUS may supply this information to third parties, such as product partners for the sole purpose of fulfilling your request for information.

When you receive information from LINUS, you are given the choice to opt-out of receiving future e-mail solicitations from LINUS about items that may be of interest to you. If you do not opt-out, LINUS will use this information only to send you e-mails regarding future promotions. Your personal information is not shared with third parties. All future e-mail solicitations will contain instructions about how to opt-out of receiving additional e-mails. Participation in these solicitations is entirely your choice.

II. Use of Cookies

What are cookies? Like many other commercial sites, our site may utilise a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how our site is used. Cookies were designed to help a web site recognize a user's browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on a computer virus or capture your e-mail address.

III. Disclosure to Third Parties

With the exception of sharing personal identifiable information with the fulfillment of customer requests, we do not share personally identifiable information with any third party. We disclose only in aggregate form our statistical analyses or demographics of users to third parties, such as advertisers or potential advertisers.

IV. Advertising

The advertising contained on linus.com.au does not collect any personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, address, phone number or email address. Cookies (see Section II for a discussion of "cookies") may be used to collect non-personally identifiable information about you, such as the server your computer is logged onto, your browser type (for example, Netscape or Internet Explorer), and whether you responded to the ad delivered.

Our site may contain links to other web sites. We have no control over the privacy practices or the content of any of our advertisers or other sites to which we provide links from our sites. These other sites may use cookies, collect data or solicit personal information. We have no control over these practices and strongly recommend that you check the applicable privacy policy of the web site sponsor when linking to other web sites.

LINUS’s policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond LINUS's control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to Australian law or government regulation.

V. Accuracy of User Information

In order to ensure the accuracy of personal information, you may enter updated information on our online registration form or email privacy@linus.com.au. Questions regarding our privacy policy, the accuracy of your personal information or the use of the information collected should also be directed via e-mail to privacy@linus.com.au. For additional contact information refer to Contact us.

These privacy policies are effective as of September 15, 2001. We reserve the right to change this policy at any time, and will post any changes to this policy as soon as they take effect.

VI. Security of Information

We use our best efforts to ensure the security of personal information submitted by users. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of information from your PC to our computers. Unfortunately, no electronic communication over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to take great care to protect your personal information, LINUS cannot warrant the security of any information that you submit to us, and you do so at your own risk. We store any personally identifiable information, in a protected area to which the general public does not have access.

VII. Use of Materials

The right to download and store or output the materials in our site is granted for the user's personal use only, and materials may not be reproduced in any edited form. Any other reproduction, transmission, performance, display or editing of these materials by any means mechanical or electronic without the express written permission of us is strictly prohibited. Users wishing to obtain permission to reprint or reproduce any materials appearing on this site may email us at reprint@linus.com.au.
