Telopea Group keeps track of the websites and pages our users visit within the Telopea Group website, in order to determine which Telopea Group website pages are the most popular. This data may be used to deliver customised content and advertising within Telopea Group to users whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Use of Cookies


The Telopea Group website may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.


One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise Telopea Group pages, or register with Telopea Group site or services, a cookie helps Telopea Group to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Telopea Group website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Telopea Group features that you customised.


You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the features of the Telopea Group services or websites you visit.


Security of your Personal Information


Telopea Group secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Telopea Group secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.


Changes to this Statement


Telopea Group will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Telopea Group encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Telopea Group is protecting your information.
