Privacy Policy

This privacy policy is for the  DomVarney.com  website.  It governs the privacy of persons who choose to use the website.  The policy sets out the different areas where user privacy is concerned and outlines the obligations and requirements of the users, the website, and the website owners.

Privacy Commitment

The operators of this website are committed to the principles of user privacy and to ensuring that the necessary steps are taken to protect the privacy of its users.  We won’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it, and we won’t share your personal information with anyone, except where required for compliance with the law,  or to protect our rights.

Contact & Communication

Users contacting this website do so at their own discretion and provide any personal details requested at their own risk.  Your personal information is kept private and stored securely until a time it is no longer required or has no use.  Our practice is guided by the requirements of  Australian privacy provisions.  Website users from other nations should satisfy themselves that these standards meet their own privacy expectations.

Email

Every effort has been made to ensure a safe and secure form to email submission process but advise users using such form to email processes that they do so at their own risk.  This website and its owners use any information submitted to provide you with further information about the products / services we offer or to assist us in answering any questions or queries you may have submitted.  Your details are not passed on to any third parties, except when we are required to do so by law.

External Links

Although it is the intention of this website to only include quality,  safe and relevant external links, users are advised to adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website.  (External links are clickable text / banner / image links to other websites.)  Despite our best efforts, we cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website .  Users should therefore be aware that they click on external links at their own risk and this website and its owners cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned.

Sponsored Links and Adverts

It is this website’s policy not to host sponsored links and adverts.  When any third party products or companies are mentioned on this website, it is only for the purpose of providing information on available options and alternatives, and not as an endorsment.  If the user chooses to follow up any third party product or company, the user should satisfy themselves of that third party’s own privacy policy.

Use of Cookies

It is the policy of this website not to use cookies.  However,  this website uses third party applications and services to enhance the experience of website visitors, and these third party applications and services may themselves use cookies.  Such applications and services include social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter (through the use of sharing buttons), or embedded content such as Vimeo.  These third parties may set and use cookies to track your online activity.  This website has no direct control over the information that is collected by these third party cookies.

Social Media Platforms

Communication, engagement and actions taken through external social media platforms that this website and its owners participate on are custom to the terms and conditions as well as the privacy policies held with each social media platform respectively.
Users are advised to use social media platforms wisely and communicate / engage upon them with due care and caution in regard to their own privacy and personal details.  This website and its owners will never ask for personal or sensitive information through social media platforms, and encourage users wishing to discuss sensitive details to contact them through primary communication channels such as email.
This website may use social sharing buttons which help share web content directly from web pages to the social media platform in question.  Users are advised before using such social sharing buttons that they do so at their own discretion and note that the social media platform may track and save your request to share a web page respectively through your social media platform account.

Shortened Links in Social Media

This website through its social media platform accounts may share web links to relevant web pages.  By default some social media platforms shorten lengthy web addresses (URLs).  Shortened web addresses appear to be made up of unintelligable numbers and letters.   Users are advised to take caution and good judgement before clicking any shortened web addresses published on social media platforms by this website and its owners.  Despite the best efforts to ensure only genuine web addresses are published many social media platforms are prone to spam and hacking and therefore this website and its owners cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any shortened links.

Payments via this website

The only form of electronic payment used by this website is PayPal.  Therefore, we will never ask you for credit card or bank account details.  Website users should not disclose such information on this website.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although any changes are likely to be minor,  this website may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at the website operator’s sole discretion.   DomVarney.com  encourages any regular visitors who are concerned about privacy to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.  Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
