1. DATA COLLECTION
To protect your privacy, you can visit www.bugrugs.com’s site without identifying yourself or having to reveal any information about yourself. We do not collect personal information when you visit our site unless you log on, place an order or register with us. Only BugRugs staff have access to your information. We do not share, sell, rent or barter any identifiable personal information to any third party. To allow us to identify you, we may ask for specific information that identifies you as a legitimate website user. When you submit feedback or questions via e-mail, or contact us for information about our website, we will request your name and e-mail address. We use this information solely to respond to your inquiries.

When you enter a contest or other promotional feature, we may ask for your name, address, and e-mail address so we can administer the contest and notify winners. We may ask for other information to enable us to improve our site, check your account status or to provide you with special offers. Our site contains links to other sites. BugRugs is not responsible for the privacy practices of other Web sites. By default all web server log files capture IP addresses. We may use your IP to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our website, investigate fraud and to track web usage. This information is used internally and is not shared with anyone else, unless required by law. When you place an order through our website you will be asked for the following personal information: your name, e-mail address, mailing address, delivery address and any special delivery instructions and phone number. We may share this information, and only that information which is absolutely necessary, with those third parties that are involved in the processing of your order. For example, the financial institution that issued your credit card and the shipping carrier that delivers your order.
BugRugs may release your personal information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to:
comply with the law;
enforce or apply the terms of our user agreement; or
protect the rights, property or safety of BugRugs, our users, and others.
As the Federal Government introduces new privacy legislation, BugRugs’ privacy policies will be reviewed and updated as required. More information on privacy legislation is available from the Federal Privacy Commissioner at www.privacy.gov.au
