We value your privacy as much as we value our own. On signing up for a SydneyPubGuide.net account,
we ask you for the following information :
You are required to verify your email address before your account is activated, in order to prevent
identity fraud. This email address is kept in our database and is protected from prying eyes to the
utmost of our ability. We will not pass on your email adddress to any third party*, and we will not
allow a third-party access to our records in any way, unless our legal position forces discosure.
Should this policy change, we will try to notify you by email at your registered email address,
and give you the opportunity to opt out of the site from that time on.
After signing up, you may be invited to provide further information. This is optional. You only need
supply a login name and valid email address for membership to this site
Should you contact us by email, or through the 'contact us' form, your message will be kept on file.
We will not use this information for any other purposes than direct communication between
SydneyPubGuide.net* and yourself.
Third-Party Cookies and Content
Our advertising Partner is Google. Advertising from Google
may carry third-party cookies, which users of up-to-date browsers are able to block at their discretion.
IP Address and account tracking
We track IP addresses in three places : Account Signup, Forum posts and individual pub comments. We do
this because of repeated legal problems with comments posted by irresponsible users. In this case, your
privacy is subordinate to SydneyPubGuide.net not being sued out of existence. Yes, we have had
several legal issues over users posting potentially libellous comments. If you post libellous comments,
we may be forced to give your IP address to the appropriate legal authority.
Please be aware we will not share your information without a solid legal reason. We're not Big Brother,
this isn't 1984, but we must cover ourselves against being sued because of irresponsible users. If you're
really paranoid, consult a good lawyer. If you want one, give us a call and we'll recommend one.
* SydneyPubGuide.net is run by Atrax Internet. For the purposes of this document, both entities should
be considered alike.
