We may use technology to track the patterns
of behaviour of visitors to our site. This can include
using a "cookie" which would be stored on
your browser. You can usually modify your browser to
prevent this happening. The information collected in
this way can be used to identify you unless you modify
your browser settings.
Our site logs information about you that
is automatically recognised by our Internet Service
Provider's web server (eg your IP address, browser type).
Your IP address is used to gather broad demographic
information to help us analyse web traffic (eg measure
the number of visitors to our site and the most popular
pages). The information is also used for technical administration
of the site as well as research and development of new
services. Email addresses and other personally identifiable
information are not available to us.
Online jobs registration form
Our site's online jobs database has a
registration form requiring users to provide contact
information (eg name and email address) and job-related
information (eg skills, fees, hours). Your contact information
is used to contact you when necessary. Other job-related
information provided to us is posted on the site to
enable you to find an employee or employment. You can
edit your details at any time.
This site, in particular the surf club
site reviews section, contains many links to other sites.
We are not responsible for the privacy practices
or the content of such sites.
In various places on our site, you'll
find links for sending us an email message. We use your
email address to send you a reply and we will retain
your message only for later referral should you decide
to contact us again. Your message and email address
remain confidential unless you specifically give us

Our site uses order/booking forms for
you to request products and services. We collect your
contact information (eg email address, phone number)
to contact you in case of changes to product or event
details (eg date, time, venue). Any other information
we collect (eg job title) is used as research and to
help develop future services.
Our site includes a link to a third-party
provider - www.paymate.com.au - for secure online payments
and direct deposits. Your credit card and bank account
details are not displayed to us. All online financial
transactions with this site are undertaken via secure servers using mechanisms to protect the
security and integrity of your personal information,
including the financial industry's Secure Socket
Layer (SSL) standards with 128-bit encryption. You should
check that your browser is compatible with SSL encryption.
This is often indicated by a 'closed lock' icon at the
bottom of your screen.
Financial data is transferred securely
into the Australian payments clearing system via dedicated
telecommunications lines and proprietary banking software
to ensure the integrity of its direct debit and credit
payments. Credit card payments are processed similarly.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over
the Internet can be guaranteed as completely secure.
So while secure servers strive to protect such information,
they cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information
you transmit and you do so at your own risk.
Our online surveys will ask for contact
information (eg email address) to contact you when necessary
(eg if you win a prize). Any other information collected
(eg job title) is used for research to help improve
and develop services.
