This privacy statement has been updated to reflect the recent changes to the Australian Privacy / Data Laws as of the 12th March 2014 in relation to how organisations that collect personal or sensitive data must do so in compliance with the Australian Privacy Principles (APP)
Big Box Computers has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: Bigboxcomputers.com.au. Any changes or updates to our privacy practices will be updated through our website. If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, please e-mail us at email@example.com
We respect your privacy
At Big Box Computers, we value our customers and their privacy. All personal information is used to ensure efficient processing of your order. This information is used by our staff for contacting and identifying customers and their needs. We will not sell, rent, or loan any identifiable personal information to any third party, unless we are legally required to do so.
Unsolicited, “spam” mail is not sent to Big Box Computers’s customers. The only email customers will receive, are updates to their recent or past orders, updates to company policy, updates and news to Big Box Computers website, Surveys about Big Box Computers Customer Service and occasional promotions (if requested). Big Box Computers is not responsible for information and actions by third party individuals/companies who have received information from customer’s directly.
Our site’s registration form requires users to give us contact information (your name, email address, phone numbers and company details). The customer’s contact information is used to contact the visitor in the event of a problem when processing an order or making an online enquiry. For example, problems with credit card verification, product availability, etc. Users have a choice of receiving / subscribing for future mailings; during the registration process.
Our site uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitor’s contact information and never collect any financial information such as credit card numbers during payment. The customer’s contact information is used to communicate with the visitor when necessary. i.e, in the event there is a problem processing an order, corporate changes, or policy changes. Financial information is not stored or collected and the customer will be contacted to bill the user for products and services. The customer ID numbers are assigned to Web site visitors to verify the user’s identity and for use as account numbers in our record system.
Anonymity and pseudonymity
Our site allows you to remain anonymous or use an alias when making a general enquiry about our services and products through email, online chat or the ticket system.
However, we require disclosure of identity/ personal information in order to facilitate enquiries about your orders, warranty claims etc placed with us. We will not disclose to any unidentified person/s information regarding orders or contact information or disclose to customers order information relating to other customers.
Security of Personal Information
Big Box Computers uses the industry standard security protocol Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encode sensitive information like your credit card number that passes between you and Big Box Computers. We employ the latest 128-bit encryption technology in all areas of the site which require you to provide your personal or account information. This means that the credit card information you send is encrypted by your computer, and then decrypted again on our side, preventing others from accessing your private information in between. So, when using an SSL capable browser, shopping on Big Box Computers web site is perfectly safe.
While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just surfing.
Big Box Computers is the sole collector of information, and is not shared with any 3rd parties. However, we do offer printable rebate forms and warranty information. Big Box Computers is not responsible for the privacy practices of those companies. Please review their respective privacy statements.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.
We provide to our shipping partners your contact information to facilitate the delivery of your order only and for no other reason. Our shipping partners are obligated by Privacy Laws to handle your personal information accordingly.
