PRIVACY POLICY

We use our best efforts to respect the privacy of our on-line visitors.

When you visit the Site, your browser automatically sends us an IP (Internet Protocol) address and certain other information known as click stream data (including the type of browser you use, the address of the site you have come from and move to after your visit and the date and time of your visit). We may use this click stream data to give you access to the Site and otherwise to administer the Site.

The Site may include certain features that allow you to communicate with us by electronic means such as email. You are responsible if you choose to use these communication features to provide personally identifying information to us (such as by including your name in the body of an e-mail message). When you provide any personally identifying information to us, you affirm that you are knowingly and voluntarily providing us the information. We may respond to the electronic communication messages you send us. We work to ensure that the personally identifying information you do intentionally provide us remains private. We will not sell, rent, or trade the personally identifying information you provide to anyone outside of Leo Burnett Australia unless we are required to do so by law. Please be aware, however, that it may be possible for others to read messages that you send over the Internet, so do not send by electronic communication any information that you would like to keep confidential. We may also share such information with our affiliate companies or any contractors that we have employed from time to time.

We will not collect use or disclose sensitive information (such as information about racial or ethnic origins or political or religious beliefs) except with your specific consent or in the circumstances permitted in the Australian Privacy legislation.
