You do not have to provide us with your personal information. Where possible, we will give you the option to interact with us anonymously or by using a pseudonym or guest account. However, if you choose to deal with us in this way or choose not to provide us with your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with all our services or otherwise interact with you comprehensively.

Transfer of personal information overseas

Some of the third-party service providers we use to store and access data may be based in, or have servers located outside of Australia.

Where we disclose your personal information to third-parties overseas, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that data security and appropriate privacy practices are maintained. We will only use services potentially based overseas if:

a&#41 the third-party service provider is subject to a law or binding scheme that is, overall, substantially similar to the APPs; and
b&#41 the law or binding scheme can be enforced; or
● the disclosure is required or authorised by an Australian law or court/tribunal order.

How do we protect your personal information?

Bozmac will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information that we hold about you is kept confidential and secure by:

● having a robust physical security of our premises and databases / records;
● taking measures to restrict access to only personnel who need that personal information to effectively provide services to you;
● having cyber security measures in place to mitigate potential data theft.

The Bozmac website may use cookies. A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers the website puts on your device if you allow it. These cookies recognise when your device has visited our website(s) before, so we can distinguish you from other users of the website. This improves your experience and the Bozmac websites functionality.

We do not use cookies to identify you, just to improve your experience on our websites.

Our website uses analytics to help us better understand visitor traffic, so we can improve our services. Although this data is mostly anonymous, it is possible that under certain circumstances, we may connect it to you.

We may send you direct marketing communications and information about our services, opportunities, or events that we consider may be of interest to you. These communications may be sent in various forms, including mail, SMS and email, in accordance with applicable marketing laws, such as the Australian Spam Act 2003 (C10).
