Welcome to www.createdigital.org.au (the “Site”).
We understand that privacy online is important to users of our Site, especially when conducting business. This statement governs our privacy policies with respect to those users of the Site (“Visitors”) who visit without transacting business and Visitors who register to transact business on the Site and make use of the various services offered by www.createdigital.org.au (collectively, “Services”) (“Authorised Customers”).
“Personally Identifiable Information” refers to any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact or locate the person to whom such information pertains, including, but not limited to: name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, financial profiles, social security number and credit card information. Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (that is, without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.
What Personally Identifiable Information is collected?
We may collect basic user profile information from all of our Visitors. We collect the following additional information from our Authorised Customers: the names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of Authorised Customers, the nature and size of the business, and the nature and size of the advertising inventory that the Authorised Customer intends to purchase or sell.
What organisations are collecting the information?
In addition to our direct collection of information, our third party service vendors (such as credit card companies, clearinghouses and banks) who may provide such services as credit, insurance and escrow services may collect this information from our Visitors and Authorised Customers. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they use personal information provided to them from Visitors and Authorised Customers. Some of these third parties might be intermediaries that act solely as links in the distribution chain, and do not store, retain, or use the information given to them.
How does the Site use Personally Identifiable Information?
We use Personally Identifiable Information to customise the Site, to make appropriate service offerings, and to fulfil buying and selling requests on the Site. We may email Visitors and Authorised Customers about research or purchase and selling opportunities on the Site or information related to the subject matter of the Site. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to contact Visitors and Authorised Customers in response to specific inquiries, or to provide requested information.
With whom may the information be shared?
Personally Identifiable Information about Authorised Customers may be shared with other Authorised Customers who wish to evaluate potential transactions with other Authorised Customers. We may share aggregated information about our Visitors, including the demographics of our Visitors and Authorised Customers, with our affiliated agencies and third party vendors. We also offer the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving information or being contacted by us or by any agency acting on our behalf.
How is Personally Identifiable Information stored?
Personally Identifiable Information collected by www.createdigital.org.au is securely stored and is not accessible to third parties or employees of www.createdigital.org.au except for use as indicated above.
What choices are available to Visitors regarding collection, use and distribution of the information?
Visitors and Authorised Customers may opt out of receiving unsolicited information from or being contacted by us and/or our vendors and affiliated agencies by responding to emails as instructed, or by contacting us at [email protected]
Are Cookies Used on the Site?
How does www.createdigital.org.au use login information?
www.createdigital.org.au uses login information, including, but not limited to, IP addresses, ISPs and browser types to analyse trends, administer the Site, track a user’s movement and use, and gather broad demographic information.
What partners or service providers have access to Personally Identifiable Information from Visitors and/or Authorized Customers on the Site?
Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information to comply with law. We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information in order to comply with a court order or subpoena or a request from a law enforcement agency to release information. We will also disclose Personally Identifiable Information when reasonably necessary to protect the safety of our Visitors and Authorised Customers.
How does the Site keep Personally Identifiable Information secure?
All of our employees are familiar with our security policy and practices. The Personally Identifiable Information of our Visitors and Authorised Customers is only accessible to a limited number of qualified employees who are given a password in order to gain access to the information. We audit our security systems and processes on a regular basis. Sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or social security numbers, is protected by encryption protocols, in place to protect information sent over the Internet. While we take commercially reasonable measures to maintain a secure site, electronic communications and databases are subject to errors, tampering and break-ins, and we cannot guarantee or warrant that such events will not take place and we will not be liable to Visitors or Authorised Customers for any such occurrences.
How can Visitors correct any inaccuracies in Personally Identifiable Information?
Visitors and Authorised Customers may contact us to update Personally Identifiable Information about them or to correct any inaccuracies by emailing us at [email protected]
Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?
We provide Visitors and Authorised Customers with a mechanism to delete/deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site’s database by contacting [email protected]. However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor’s entry without retaining some residual information. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.

We use Google Analytics to collect traffic data for continually improving our website. Google Analytics traffic data is stored on Google servers (whether in the US or elsewhere) and Google is subject to US law.
To improve our website further, we use Google Analytics Demographic and Interest reporting. These reports associate your visit to our website with Google’s estimated data about your age, gender and interest categories. This data is calculated by Google based on any accounts you have with Google products (such as YouTube), as well as your browsing behaviour on third party websites that use the DoubleClick cookie. This data is aggregated by Google Analytics and a privacy threshold is applied so that we cannot identify your demographics and interests on an individual basis.
We also use the Google Analytics UserID feature. If you choose to identify yourself (eg. by filling out a form), we will associate your create digital user ID with your subsequent visits across multiple devices, as well as some internal customer information. All of this associated data is not Personally Identifiable Information, meaning that your private data (eg. email address, phone number, name etc.) are never stored on Google servers; all that’s stored is an anonymised link to these records in our internal database. We follow Google’s privacy requirements for UserID, including dissociating your UserID from future browsing if you choose to log out.
From time to time, we also use Google remarketing and interest-based advertising to serve you ads (using Google and third party vendors) based on your demographics and your behaviour on this website. Any advertising or remarketing lists you may belong to are also subject to Google’s privacy thresholds. We cannot serve you ads based on any personally-identifiable information (or any sensitive information) and the ad serving cannot be used to individually target any ads to a particular person. For more information, see Google’s policy for advertising based on interests and location.
A range of opt-out actions you can take is outlined below:
- To remove yourself from a remarketing list or do dissociate your UserID from future browsing, clear your browser cookies.
- To completely opt out of Google’s remarketing lists and demographic and interest-based classification, visit Google’s Ads Settings page.
- To opt out of your usage data being reported to Google Analytics for this website, refuse or clear the relevant first party cookies (called _ga and _gat) associated with this website.

From time to time, we also use the Facebook Pixel to serve you ads (using Facebook and third party vendors) based on your behaviour on this website.
