Privacy Policy

At Australian Kayak Specialists we know you care about your personal privacy. Because we care, we have adopted the practices described in this Privacy Policy. You should not access this site or use our services until you have carefully read this Privacy Policy and agree to the terms and conditions described in it.

Our Collection and Use of Your Personal Information

We collect and use information about you which we reasonably believe will help us administer our business or provide products, services or other opportunities to you. Among other things, we use the information we learn about you to help us personalize and improve the experience you have with us, to respond to your requests and to communicate with you. The types of information we collect, retain and use include the following:

Site Use Information: In general, you can visit Australian Kayak Specialists web site (the "Site") without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the domain names, not the email addresses, of visitors. This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site, pages viewed etc. Australian Kayak Specialists utilises this information ("behaviour profiles") to measure the use of our Site and to improve the content we offer. We may share with third parties experimental information or other data which does not personally identify users of our site.

Information You Provide To Us: When you register on our site to receive information from Australian Kayak Specialists, we collect profile information from you ("Personally Identifiable Information"). By providing this Personally Identifiable Information to us, you explicitly agree to our collection and usage of such information as described in this Privacy Policy. Usually, we use your Personally Identifiable Information only to respond to your inquiries, process an order, contact you regarding account status or customer service, let you know about products or services which may be of interest to you, or to allow you to access specific account information. When you register to post or purchase products on our site, you are consenting to share the Personally Identifiable Information with other potential buyers/sellers so that they may contact you. You also consent to our making your e-mail addresses available to other reputable organisations whose products or services we think you may find interesting.

Cookies: Like many web sites we use "cookies" to enable us to remember your password, to help us identify the portions of our Site that may be the most relevant for your needs, and to help us identify other products or services that may be of interest to you or others. A cookie is a small piece of information that a web site can store on your web browser and then retrieve at a later time. We use cookies to track the portions of our Site you visit. However, we do NOT use cookies to examine your surfing behaviour before or after you leave our Site. There are products commercially available that are designed to help you disable cookies. Although we want you to be aware that such products exist, please note that if you choose to use them we will not be able to provide you with a personalised service, and it may result in certain features and services not being available to you.

E-Mail Communications: We use your e-mail address to contact you to respond to your inquiries or to provide information on products or services to you. To help us determine whether you have received an e-mail from us, and to help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation that you have opened an e-mail from us.

Child Privacy: Because of the nature of our business, our products and services are not designed to appeal to minors, and therefore we do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive any information from children. Our terms and conditions of use require that any registration may only be made by those age 18 or older and that any product or service purchases may only be made by those 18 or older. If we have reason to believe that the information is being provided by a child under the age of 18, Australian Kayak Specialists will not collect the information without parental consent or parent notification, which will include the opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information or to prevent the child's participation in the activity. Without parental consent, online information will only be used to respond to an unsolicited request and for no other purposes. We recognise that protecting children's identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents.
