Online privacy statement

The Software Industry Professionals website is owned and operated by Multimedia Australia Pty. Ltd. ("Multimedia Australia" / "Software Industry Professionals"). We are committed to protecting your privacy while you visit this site. Sometimes we may ask you for information so that we can provide a service you request (such as registering to become a member). This privacy statement explains how we protect your privacy and our collection and use of the information you provide us with.

Collection of personal information

We will ask you when we require personal information from you. No personally identifying information will be gathered about you without your consent. When you supply us with information, it may be stored in a database or other storage medium. You can change or remove the information we hold about you by contacting us.

Use of personal information

Whenever we ask you to provide us with personal information, we will explain what the information will be used for. Once we obtain your information, (if applicable) it may be stored on one or more databases/files with limited access and security features.

We will not disclose your information to third parties without your consent except to the extent that we have hired a company to act on our behalf to provide a postal, product ordering or support service. In this situation, we will only provide those companies with the information they need in order to deliver the service.

We will only disclose your personal information to a third party if required to do so by law or in the belief that such action is necessary to either (a) defend the rights, interests or property of Multimedia Australia Pty. Ltd.; or (b) protect the personal safety of users of our website, users of our products/services or the public.

We will not use the information you provide us with to communicate with you except if we are required to do so by law, in order to fulfil any obligation we have to you as a member/user of our website, or where the purpose of you providing us with that information was for us to contact you. Software Industry Professional members may also receive communication from us such as monthly newsletters regarding their membership as described in the membership contract.

Cookies and traffic analysis

Cookies and Web beacons may be used to enable third party serving of ads. You can delete cookies at any time using your Web browser's 'Remove cookies' feature. Our site may serve Google ads which use DART cookies to display ads based on your visit(s) to our sites and other sites on the Internet. Web users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

Cookies may also be used on this website to enable you to login and use the membership area and discussion forum.

Determining the applicable site for a customer service enquiry

Multimedia Australia operates a large number of websites. If you contact us and we are unsure which website, product, or service your enquiry is regarding and/or if we require further details about your question so that we can provide you with an accurate response, to ensure quality customer service, we may need to refer to our site logs to determine from which of our sites you arrived at our contact form. To help ensure we can answer your question even faster without first needing to refer to this information, we ask that you please identify the site you are referring to in your message, or use the contact form located on the site in question. This cross-referencing is done only if required for the sole purpose of helping you with your enquiry, and the resulting collected information is not stored or recorded for any other purpose.

Intellectual property protection and fraud prevention

Subject to applicable law, we may record and/or monitor traffic on this website for the purposes of preventing fraud and/or illegal activities (such as hacking or software piracy), to protect users of our website and to protect the intellectual property of Multimedia Australia. Any activity which appears to be suspicious or illegal may be forwarded to law enforcement agencies.

Registration and contact forms

Some Web pages on this Web site contain forms that allow you to register with/contact the Software Industry Professionals group. As part of the form submission, your computer's IP address and Web browser information may also be sent. This information is used only for security purposes and to deter fraud.

Links to third party websites

Some parts of our Web site may link to Web sites owned and operated by third parties. These Web sites are governed by their own privacy statements (if applicable). As Software Industry Professionals does not have control over these sites, it does not take any responsibility as to the nature and content of those sites.

Modifications to this statement

Software Industry Professionals will occasionally update this privacy statement so that it complies with any changes to our site. We will notify you of any changes through a notice on our home page.

If you have any further questions, comments, require further clarification, or you wish to change or remove any information you have provided to us, please contact us.
