Information We Share with Others and Your Privacy Rights

It is not a practice of Designed by Teachers to sell, rent, or trade personal information. In order to service our customers and members, we will treat the information you supply with confidentiality. On rare occasions, Designed by Teachers may be required to disclose specific information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, or when required by law to do so. We may also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation. We do not provide information to these agencies or companies for marketing or commercial purposes.

Security

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Whenever you use our web site, or any other web site, the computer on which the web pages are stored (the Web server) needs to know the network address of your computer so that it can send the requested web pages to your Internet browser. The unique network address of your computer is called its “IP address,” and is sent automatically each time you access any Internet site. From a computer’s IP address, it is possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer, but otherwise it is anonymous. 
We do not keep a record of the IP addresses from which users access our site except where you have specifically provided us with information about yourself, in which case we also record your IP address for security purposes. An example of this would be when proceeding to a checkout to finalise an order you may wish to make. After completing the form provided, your IP address will be stored along with a transaction number that allows us to track your order.

Your Consent

By using the services offered by Designed By Teachers and the services on www.designedbyteachers.com.au, and continuing to order and use services, you consent to the collection and use of your personal and technical information and cookies as detailed in this privacy policy.
