AdPlan's Privacy Statement has been created because we value our users and recognise their right to keep personal information private. This statement discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for all sites managed by AdPlan.
AdPlan collects information on our site visitors collectively including which sections of the site are most frequently visited, how often and for how long. This data is always used as aggregated, non-personal information. AdPlan utilises this information to improve and enhance our services by monitoring the areas on the site which are most popular to you. This aggregated information may be shared with AdPlan partners to provide them with an overview of how AdPlan visitors use the site. This is done for the purposes of providing you with the best online experience for searching for advertising.
AdPlan's web servers gather your IP address to assist with the diagnosis of problems or support issues with our services, and to monitor legitimate use of our site.
Users who do not wish to receive cookies can instruct their web browsers to refuse them. However, doing so will prevent access to some areas of the site and limit your use of some of the AdPlan services.
In order to better understand our users, AdPlan utilises a third party measurement company, Google Analytics to assess site traffic. A tracking code is used to collect the following information on the usage of the AdPlan site:
This aggregate, non-personal information is collated and provided to AdPlan to assist in analysing the usage of the site. This data is also accessible by media organisations and research companies, for the purpose of conducting industry comparisons with other Internet websites.
As part of registering with AdPlan, we collect personal information about you in order for you to take full advantage of AdPlan's services. To do this it may be necessary for you to provide additional information to AdPlan as detailed below.
Registration is completely optional. However, registration for 'My AdPlan' services allows you to take advantage of more of the tools and resources that assist you in searching for advertising. Registration includes submitting your email address.
AdPlan reserves the right to disable or delete a “My AdPlan” Account at their sole discretion.
AdPlan also provides you with selected information about Advertising opportunities, AdPlan and Advertising related topics in our email newsletter. This free service is sent to registered users and provides the option of opting out of receiving these. AdPlan may also make you aware of additional products and services which form part of your relationship with AdPlan.
AdPlan takes all reasonable steps to ensure the security of our system. AdPlan allows you to access your information at any time to keep it accurate and up to date. Any information which we hold for you is stored on secure servers that are protected in controlled facilities.
In addition, our employees and the contractors who provide services related to our information systems are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by AdPlan. However, AdPlan will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access of your personal information.
You can also play an important role in keeping your personal information secure, by maintaining the confidentiality of any password and accounts used on the AdPlan site. Please notify us immediately if there is any unauthorised use of your account by any other Internet user or any other breach of security.
As indicated unless you become a registered 'My AdPlan' user, AdPlan does not collect information that identifies you personally. If however, you become a ‘My AdPlan’ user, you are able to change, update or delete your registered profile at any time by logging in to your “My AdPlan” account.
AdPlan provides links and passes online application to third party sites. The use of your information by these third party sites is not within the control of AdPlan and we cannot accept responsibility for the conduct of these companies.
With the consent of AdPlan's members, AdPlan may provide that users personal profile to AdPlan clients who have listed advertising options with matching criteria to the AdPlan users search profile and who have purchased access to the member's profile. The use of that information by these AdPlan clients is not within the control of AdPlan and we cannot accept responsibility for the conduct of these clients.
Sometimes, we transfer information to persons outside Australia (e.g. a contractor located in New Zealand who provides us with services). By giving us your personal information, you consent to such disclosures. In addition, we believe that the recipients of such information are subject to a law, binding scheme or contract which effectively upholds principles for fair handling of the information that are substantially similar to the National Privacy Principles.
AdPlan welcomes ideas and feedback about all aspects of the site. AdPlan stores feedback that users send to us. This feedback will be used to administer and refine the service and may be shared with AdPlan partners either in aggregate form or with specific identifying characteristics removed.
From time to time, AdPlan may review and update its privacy statement. Revised versions will be updated on the website.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with AdPlan, you can contact us.
