Scout Outdoor Centre Privacy Policy

The Scout Outdoor Centre does not collect any personal information about you via our Internet site except when you knowingly provide it. If you have elected to be a registered user we may use your e-mail address from time to time to send you various promotional offers, special events or other marketing communications that may be of interest to you. It is our policy to send emails to customers who give us permission to do so. If we send you an email for a commercial purpose, we will always give you the option of not receiving further communications of this nature. Alternatively, you may also elect to receive emails about specific subjects and activities that we may offer.

Subject to other provisions of this policy, personal information obtained on the site will not be released to a third party without your consent. We will use any collected information to improve our service to users, and from time to time may contact registered users about new features and improvements to the website.

The Scout Outdoor Centre takes all reasonable steps to ensure that member information is secure from any unauthorised access or disclosure. We have incorporated security procedures and practices that we consider are consistent with Australian industry practice. We review our security procedures from time to time and update them when we deem necessary. Obviously, the use of any information you decide to provide to third parties on the Internet (outside our website and its levels of protection) falls outside this statement. We assume no responsibility and make no warranties or representations regarding the information practices of third-party sites where a user is able to access their sites through ours. We encourage users to review each site's privacy policy before disclosing any personally identifiable information.

You may elect to use an e-commerce section of our website to purchase products and to pay for those products using your credit card. These transactions use an industry standard encryption code. This means that your credit card and payment details are not retained by The Scout Outdoor Centre or its businesses.

For statistical purposes we may collect non-personalised information on website activity (such as the number of users who visit the website and navigation patterns) through the use of tracking technology. In order to collect user statistics we may anonymously log information, and identify categories of users by items such as domains and browser types.

The Scout Outdoor Centre may amend this section from time to time. We will notify you by posting a prominent announcement on our web pages and via email to registered users if we make any substantial changes in the way we use your personal information.
