This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how we handle the personal information that you provide to us on this site (the “Web Site”). This Privacy Policy applies only to the U.S. aswe.org.au Site, not to any other aswe.org.auor third party sites that may be accessible from here.

After reading this Privacy Policy, which is incorporated into and is a part of the Web Site’s Terms of Use, you will know:

3) What choices you have about how aswe.org.au treats your information
4) How aswe.org.au protects your privacy
5) What aswe.org.au does about children visiting the Web Site

Please be sure to read this Privacy Policy before using the Web Site or submitting information to us. Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and your continued use of the Web Site is acceptance of such changes, so please check this area periodically for updates to this Privacy Policy.

1. INFORMATION ASWE COLLECTS FROM YOU
Active Information Collection
Like many other web sites, we actively collect information from our visitors both by asking specific questions on the Web Site and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, business name, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, credit card information, etc.).

When you visit the Web Site or interactive advertisements, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. The Web Site or interactive advertisements may invite you to submit names, e-mail addresses or addresses of others in connection with certain promotions or offers that appear on the Web Site or interactive advertisements, including offers to obtain additional product information through an authorized independent distributor.

ASWE does not have control over the privacy policies applied by any other party that you may disclose information to. Third party sites that are linked to from the Web Site are not under the control of ASWE and we are not responsible for their content or privacy policies. If you would like information on any other party’s privacy policy, you should contact that party directly, and we encourage you to do so.
Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a web site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. Our system also automatically gathers information about the areas you visit on the Web Site and collects operational information about the technology you use, such as your internet browser, type of computer, operating systems, Internet service providers and the domain name of the web site from which you linked to our site or advertisement.
We passively collect information to understand what areas of the Web Site are most popular, which areas may require improvement and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve the Web Site. We also use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment.

2. HOW ASWE USES YOUR INFORMATION
ASWE uses your personal information to enhance the operation of the Web Site and allow you to use all of its features.

Your contact information (name, address, e-mail addresses, phone number, credit card information) will be used for the purposes for which you supplied it to us (e.g.,asking questions/comments, ordering parts) and to send you related notices. From time to time we also may send you notices of special events and our newsletter. We will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties.

Further, ASWE may store and process your personally identifiable information to better understand your needs and how we may improve our products and services, and we may use your personally identifiable information to send you marketing or promotional materials or other information, or respond to your comments or requests for information. We may also enhance or merge personally identifiable information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes. At times, if you direct comments to us or if you request information from us, we may ask you to verify where you live so that we can be assured that the response or information we provide is appropriate for your country of residence. Since the only way we sell some of our products is through authorized independent distributors, when you request additional product information, we will share the personally identifiable information that you submit with the ASWE distributor in your home geography. This distributor may not be governed by the same privacy policy as this Web Site. If you would rather that we did not share your personally identifiable information with the ASWE distributor in your home geography please do not submit information to the Web Site.

ASWE does not otherwise distribute to third parties your personally identifiable information. ASWE, however, will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.
ASWE may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, online traffic patterns and related information to reputable third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. ASWE reserves the right to disclose user information in special cases, when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, other web site users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose personal information without notice to you in response to a subpoena or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to respond to an emergency situation.
Although ASWE does not currently rent, sell, or otherwise share your information with third parties for purposes unrelated to the Web Site, it may do so in the future.

 

3. HOW ASWE PROTECTS YOUR INFORMATION
We work hard to protect your personal information. We use both technical and procedural methods to maintain the integrity and security of our databases. We have made a substantial investment in server, database, backup and firewall technologies to protect the information provided to us.

All data resides in a tightly controlled, highly secure area. ASWE is committed to keeping secure the data you provide us and will take reasonable precautions to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse or alteration. Agents or contractors of ASWE who have access to your personally identifiable information in connection with providing services for ASWE are required to keep the information confidential and are not permitted to use this information for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for ASWE.

5. WHAT ASWE DOES ABOUT CHILDREN VISITING THE WEB SITE
The Web Site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect information from site visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose online.
