Here is a list of the information we collect, and why it is necessary to collect it:

1   Basic identification and contact information, such as your name and contact details.

This information is used:
1.1         to provide you with the services which you request;
1.2         to maintain our accounts;
1.3         for billing;
1.4         to enable us to answer your enquiries;
1.5         for verifying your identity for security purposes;
1.6         for marketing our services and products;
1.7         to help make our web site as useful to you as possible;
1.8         information which does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class information, for example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service.

2   Your domain name and email address

Are recognised by our servers and the pages that you visit are recorded. This information is used:

2.1        
in a collective way not referable to any particular individual, for the purpose of quality control and improvement of our site;
2.2         to send you news about the services to which you have signed up;

3   Financial information, including credit card details

This information is used to obtain payment for goods and services you have ordered from us. This information is taken through a page certified as secure by GeoTrust (http://www.geotrust.com). You will note that this page has a web address starting “https”, not “http”.  The additional “s” denotes its secure status. Such information is automatically encrypted as soon as you confirm it and passes in encrypted form to our contracted merchant service provider, the National Australia Bank (NAB), who automatically arranges the transfer from your bank account to ours.  We store the encrypted version on our servers, to save you having to re-enter it when you buy from us again, after when it is automatically deleted.  The encrypted information is retained whilst your account is active and then for a period of 3 months after your membership is cancelled, when it is automatically deleted.

Note: your Internet browser may produce a warning message.  This is automatic and does not reflect on the high level of security built into our system.

4   Your Getgaming.com.au personal username

Is available to be seen by members throughout the world. No contact details whatever are given out with it. This information is not used for marketing purposes
of any sort.  Information, which does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class information, for example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service.  Some of this information is classified as sensitive information by the Australian Data Protection Acts.  We make the assumption that in giving this information to us, you consent to our holding it for the duration of your membership.
The Data is retained for a period of 3 months after the membership is cancelled, when it is automatically deleted.

5   Information volunteered by you

for a particular purpose, for example a personal profile, survey, or contest.  This information will be used exclusively for the purpose for which you have provided it. Information is disclosed to third parties only where the third party concerned qualifies in whatever way the web site page requires.  We will make absolutely clear on the face of the page, any intention to publicise the name of a winner. In most cases the username selected when signing up at getgaming will be the name that is publicised, the username has no security implications within getgaming.com.au and does not specifically reveal personal details about the member.

6   We occasionally run our own email surveys

And we ask visitors for contact, demographic and technical information. We use contact data from our surveys to send users information about our company. This information is also used to contact visitors to learn more about specific problems they might have reported or to give them rewards, if such a reward program is part of the survey. The demographic information is used to learn more about the types of people who visit our site.

7   We run contests on our site in which we ask visitors for contact information

(such as their email address or member username). We use this information to contact the winners. We may share contest information entered on our website with our business and marketing partners.
