This statement sets out our policies relating to the privacy of your personal information:
Briefly, this web site is operated in compliance with the Australian Government’s Information Privacy Principles which are outlined at www.privacy.gov.au and we try to comply with these principles at all times.
Our web site collects the following information from our online visitors: a record of each visit that logs a visitor’s IP address, the date and time of their visit, the pages accessed and/or documents downloaded, their country of origin and the type of browser used (ie exactly the same type of information routinely collected by all web servers around the world).
No attempt is or will be made to identify individual users or their browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation where a law enforcement agency exercises a warrant to inspect our service provider’s logs. We analyse the information collected by our web server at the end of each month purely to determine our web site’s overall usage statistics.
We retain the e-mail addresses of people who send emails to us through this web site for the sole purpose of sending them a response. These email addresses are stored in a secure area of our office network (ie not on the website) and are not used for any other purpose. Nor will they be disclosed to any third party without the consent of the person who originally emailed us.
People who submit email addresses, web sites or other information for linking on this web site are agreeing to have them published on our web site by doing so. We will, however, remove or modify any submitted email address, web site URL or other supplied information on request.
Information submitted to vilatimes.com via business registration forms, email or other means will be placed on our website in the relevant category/categories as judged by us to be appropriate. By submitting a registration form, emailing us or contacting us by other means you consent to the publication of your information on our website.
vilatimes.com has no control over the subsequent use or disclosure of this information once it has been published on the web. Our website also contains information already in the public domain.
If you wish to have your information removed or amended in any way, please contact us – either by phoning us on +678 739 9096 during business hours or by email.
This privacy statement is periodically reviewed in line with the ongoing development of our web site and/or changes to Australian privacy laws.
This statement sets out our policies relating to spam (ie unsolicited commercial email):
Our web site is operated in compliance with the Australian Spam Act 2003, which may be viewed online at a variety of locations.
This means that we don’t send out any spam emails. Nor do we do business with any individual or company who does. And we encourage all our visitors to do likewise.
We also use anti-spam filtering on our emails and we report any Australian who spams us to the proper authorities on receipt of their spam. Again, we encourage our visitors to do likewise in countries which have equivalent legislation to Australia. Or to ask their legislators to toughen existing laws up to Australian anti-spam standards where those laws are weak.
Listings shown on our website which contain email addresses are shown for the purpose of inviting contact from the public which is directly related to the services that an individual business, activity or organisation offers.
Email contacts are not to be taken as a general invitation for email spam, and are not to be used to construct mailing lists.
vilatimes.com actively encourages anyone who is spammed to report that spam to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) so that it can take appropriate action against the spammer under the terms of the Australian Spam Act 2003.
vilatimes.com also actively monitors our database at all times and employs techniques which detect attempted construction of email lists. We will report any person who attempts to abuse this website’s service to ACMA without hesitation.
vilatimes.com makes no representations about the content and suitability of vilatimes.com materials presented online for any purpose.
