This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by Grassroots IT. If you have any concerns or queries, please contact us at community@grassrootsit.com.au

Information We Collect

This Site collects the personal information on you in two ways:

Information you voluntarily provide to us, which may include:

The information you provide is used and stored to process transactions, send periodic emails, and improve the service we provide.

We may be required to give access to our website to trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business and servicing clients and visitors, and therefore some of your personal data may be accessible to these trusted third parties. These trusted third parties agree to keep this information confidential. Your personal information will never be shared with unrelated third parties.

You may unsubscribe from our newsletters or updates at any time through the unsubscribe link at the footer of all e-mail communications. If you have questions or are experiencing problems unsubscribing, contact us via email at community@grassrootsit.com.au or via mail to:

Cookies

Our Site may use ‘cookies’ to enhance User experience. We may send cookies to your computer in order to uniquely identify your browser and improve the quality of our service. The term “cookies” refers to small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the Site. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). You have the ability to accept or decline cookies using your web browser settings. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Site may not work properly or at all.

We maintain security measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, misuse, or disclosure. However, no exchange of data over the Internet can be guaranteed as 100% secure. While we make every effort to protect your personal information shared with us through our Site, you acknowledge that the personal information you voluntarily share with us through this Site could be accessed or tampered with by a third party. You agree that we are not responsible for any intercepted information shared through our Site without our knowledge or permission. Additionally, you release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of such intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.
