There are two main ways we collect information about you:
i. If you do not log in to ExplorOz using a registered profile
Whenever you visit our site, our servers automatically record information about your usage of the Site such as the time of the visit, its duration and the pages which you visit. This is intended to help us to understand what parts of our Site our users enjoy the most, and to help us to ensure that any advertising is most directly relevant to your interests. The information we collect about you remains anonymous, and we do not link it to any other personal information.
If you do not want us to retain any information at all, even in an anonymous form, you can use the Preferences on your browser program to remove all cookies and set the browser not to accept cookies in the future. For more information on disabling cookies, click here
ii. If you log in to ExplorOz using a registered profile
Once you have registered, you have provided your email address to us. We require the use of your email account in order to verify that your visits to the Site are from a verified individual rather than a spam account or software program. This allows us to open a level of Site access that allows you to utilise the interactive sections on the Site where you may add content (publish) to the Site.
When you first register we collect information from you directly and also from time to time thereafter if you provide us additional information.
Once you have logged on using a registered profile, we keep a record of how you use the Site. This helps us to build a profile of your site activity so that we can personalise your experience of the Site and publish information in your My Home and Profile which tracks what Site changes have occured since your last visit, and to tag relevant updates you have made back to your Profile.
Any further collection of your personal information other than that explained above will only occur with consent from you. ExplorOz only collects information from your use of our Site. We do not collect information about you from other organizations or from websites outside the Site that you may visit.
