|We at DWP Network Automotive
Pty Ltd (referred to as
"Network Auto," "we," "us," or
"our") recognise the importance of protecting the privacy of
certain information ("Information") collected about our
customers and prospective customers (referred to as
"Customers," "you" or "your"). This
privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it,
and how to correct or change it. At Network Auto
it is our intention
to give you an understanding about how we collect your Information and
the use we make of it in the course of our business.
To that end, Network Auto gathers two types of information about
Customers: data that Customers provide through optional, voluntary
registration on our sites; and data Network Auto gathers through
aggregated tracking, mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites.
Such information enables us to tailor our content to fit Customers'
needs better and to help our advertisers understand our audience.
Because Network Auto derives its revenue mainly from advertising,
providing such aggregated data is essential to keeping our service free
to Customers. Be assured that Network Auto will not
disclose personal Information to third parties without your consent,
the Information is submitted.
We collect information by specifically requesting it from you. Generally
this occurs when you register at a site or request information or a
service, or even liase with one of our staff requesting information
about a specific product.
Use of Internet Protocol ("IP") Addresses :
An IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your
computer whenever you're surfing the Internet so that your computer can
be identified by the main computers, known as "Web servers,"
that "serve up" Web pages.
Network Auto may at times collect IP addresses for the purposes of
system administration, to report aggregated information to our
advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When Customers request
pages or information from Network Auto, our servers log the Customers'
IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything
personally identifiable, which means that a Customer's session will be
logged, but the Customer will remain anonymous to us. We can and will
use IP addresses to identify a Customer when we feel it is necessary to
protect our service, site, customers or others.
