- Visitors / Users = members of the general public who visit websites at a .bapnet.com.au address
As Users of our Website and associated services, BAPNet wants you, Admins and Visitors, to be clear how BAPNet are using information and the ways in which Users can protect your privacy.
Information BAPNet collects
BAPNet collects information to provide better services to all of our Users and Admins. For Admins, we collect your business contact details and website content information that you enter when you set up your site. For Users, we collect anonymous usage statistics through Google Analytics, and your details that are entered through the Website(s) contact / booking request forms.
Information BAPNet gets from any Users’ use of the Website. BAPNet collect information about the services that Users use and how Users use them.
This information includes:
BAPNet collects device specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number).
Device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
Cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Account.
When Users and Admins use BAPNet's services, BAPNet may collect and process information about your actual location. BAPNet uses various technologies to determine location, including IP address, GPS, and other sensors.
BAPNet may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
Cookies and anonymous identifiers
BAPNet and our partners use various technologies to collect and store information when Users visit BAPNet, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device.
How BAPNet uses information collected
BAPNet uses the information collected from the Website(s) to provide, maintain, protect and improve our services, to develop new ones, and to protect BAPNet and our Admins & Users. BAPNet will or may also use this information to offer Users tailored content – such as giving more relevant search results and features.
When Admins contact BAPNet, BAPNet keeps a record of your communication to help solve any issues which may occur. BAPNet may use email addresses to inform Users about our services, such as informing Users about upcoming changes or improvements.
BAPNet uses information collected from cookies and other technologies, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services.
BAPNet processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. BAPNet may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where Users live.
Information Users share
Our services enable Users to share information with others, such as User and Product listing and reviews. Remember that when Users share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines, including Google, Bing etc. Our services provide Users with different options on sharing and removing your content. Any information or pictures Admins make publicly available on BAPNet, may be used to advertise BAPNet.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever Admins use our services, BAPNet aims to provide Users with access to your business information. If that information is wrong, BAPNet strives to give Admins ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless BAPNet has to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, BAPNet may ask Admins to verify their identity before BAPNet can act on your request.
BAPNet may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where BAPNet can provide information access and correction, BAPNet will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. BAPNet aims to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after Admins delete information from our services, BAPNet may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of BAPNet, our Users or the public as required or permitted by law.

BAPNet restricts access to personal information to BAPNet employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
