It is Ecopot’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. This Privacy Policy applies to www.Ecopot.com.au (hereinafter, “us”, “we”, or “www.Ecopot.com.au”). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. We have adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and conditions posted on our Website, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Website. Depending on your activities when visiting our Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Ecopot collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Ecopot’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Ecopot’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Ecopot may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Ecopot also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on http://www.Ecopot.com.au blog posts. Ecopot only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below:

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Ecopot’s websites choose to interact with Ecopot in ways that require Ecopot to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Ecopot gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at http://www.Ecopot.com.au to provide a username and email address.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

To enrich and perfect your online experience, Ecopot uses “Cookies”, similar technologies and services provided by others to display personalized content, appropriate advertising and store your preferences on your computer.
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Ecopot uses cookies to help Ecopot identify and track visitors, their usage of http://www.Ecopot.com.au, and their website access preferences. Ecopot visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Ecopot’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Ecopot’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
By continuing to navigate our website without changing your cookie settings, you hereby acknowledge and agree to Ecopot’s use of cookies.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
