As the Garden Sheds Online website develops and as technology evolves, Garden Sheds Online will continue to strive to provide you with better and more customised services and with a more effective website. Garden Sheds Online encourages you to review the Security and Privacy Statement periodically because the Security and Privacy Statement may change from time to time.
Garden Sheds Online regularly reviews developments in security and encryption technologies. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Accordingly, although Garden Sheds Online strives to protect such information, Garden Sheds Online cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we take reasonable steps to preserve the security and privacy of the information in our own systems.
The information that Garden Sheds Online collects about you is dependent on how you use the facilities offered by the Garden Sheds Online website.
If you visit an unsecure area of the Garden Sheds Online website (that is, an area where you are not required to log on) to read, browse or download information, our system will record the date and time of your visit to our site, the pages viewed and any information downloaded. However, our systems will not record any personally identifiable information.
If you decide to complete an online application form or online survey, the information that you enter into the online form or survey will only be collected by Garden Sheds Online if you submit your online application or survey. If at any stage you cancel your application or log out prior to submitting your application or survey, the information you have entered up to that point will be automatically deleted. Online applications that have been suspended or saved will not be viewed by us and are not processed by us.
The Garden Sheds Online website may also contain links to the websites of third party providers of goods and services ("Third Party websites"). If you have accessed Third Party websites through the Garden Sheds Online website and if those third parties collect information about you, Garden Sheds Online may also collect or have access to that information as part of our arrangements with those third parties.
Where you access a Third Party website from the Garden Sheds Online website, cookie information, information about your preferences or other information you have provided about yourself may be shared between us and the third party. You cannot usually be identified from the information that is shared; if you can be identified from this information, we will seek your consent before sharing such information.
Third Party websites should contain their own privacy statements and those third parties are responsible for their own privacy practices.
It is necessary for Garden Sheds Online to collect your IP address for your interaction with various parts of the Garden Sheds Online website. Your IP address is the identifier for your computer when you are using the internet.
For instance, Garden Sheds Online collects and stores your IP address when you log into Garden Sheds Online Store Internet Shopping. As part of our security for Garden Sheds Online Internet Shopping, Garden Sheds Online uses this information when we attempt to detect and prevent fraudulent transactions in Internet Shopping. We store your IP address for security and audit purposes. Your IP address will not be used by us or released to any third party except in the case of security, inappropriate behaviour or fraud issues, such as unauthorised access to your or our computer systems or fraudulent transactions.
When you view a Garden Sheds Online advertisement on a Third Party website, the advertising company uses 'cookies' and in some cases 'web beacons' to collect information such as:
- The server your computer is logged onto.
- Your browser type.
- The date and time of your visit.
- The performance of their marketing efforts.
When you access the Garden Sheds Online website after viewing a Garden Sheds Online advertisement on a Third Party website, the advertising company collects information on how you utilise the Garden Sheds Online website (eg which pages you view) and whether you complete an online application.
The advertising company and tracking companies ('companies') use that information to perform statistical analyses of aggregate user behaviour, but those analyses are not based on personal information. Garden Sheds Online uses those analyses to measure advertising effectiveness and relative consumer interest in the various areas of the Garden Sheds Online website. As a general rule, no personal information is collected by the Companies in this process. If, however, any information is automatically collected, these companies are required under their arrangements with Garden Sheds Online to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of that personal information.
We may disclose the information collected by a Company, in an aggregate form only, to third parties including advertisers or potential advertisers.
