2. COLLECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION
c2c will not collect or monitor any personal information about an individual without their consent. The only personal information collected is what is provided voluntarily by a member or prospective member.
We collect personal information primarily to enable us to provide members with our services. c2c may also use the information for marketing to you or for any other purpose permitted under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
You don’t need to identify yourself when you deal with us ( e.g. to find out more about membership packages) however in certain situations we will only deal with individuals who have identified themselves to us.
When a membership or product is purchased personal information will be requested in order to provide the requested service or product, provide updated information, and advise of other c2c products, which may be of interest. You are not obligated to provide personal information however failure to do so may result in c2c being unable to provide services or products to you.
Personal information is collected directly from members or potential future members when they personally complete and submit an application form to become a member of c2c. This can be done in person at c2c, on line via our website or on the phone via one of our staff.
3. USE OF TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
c2c may use tracking technologies such as cookies or web beacons to make use of the website and services as convenient as possible. Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers to a computer’s hard disk for record keeping purposes. Web Beacon is a technical method that sends information related to the access to websites, when you browse websites, open or preview an HTML-formatted email. Most web browsers are set to accept tracking technologies such as cookies or web beacons. These tracking technologies do not themselves personally identify users, although they do identify a user’s browser. These tracking technologies may allow c2c to monitor the c2c web site, and to record how many people are using the different parts of the site. It is possible to set the browser to refuse tracking technologies such as cookies or web beacons, however, this may limit the services provided by c2c’s web site.
