This privacy policy describes how Fichest.com.au uses and protects any information that you give us.

Fichest respects your privacy and is committed to ensuring your privacy is protected. We believe that Fichest is the product not you or your data. We will only use the information you provide to help deliver our service to you. If you provide us with any personal information through Fichest.com.au, you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Fichest.com.au 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. Fichest.com.au’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Fichest.com.au’s visitors use our website. From time to time, Fichest.com.au may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.

Fichest.com.au also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Fichest.com.au does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and may also collect 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 check if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture will be visible to the public next to your submitted comment.
