Sydney Bed and Breakfast has a strong commitment to providing excellent service to all of our customers and visitors of this web site, including respecting your concerns about privacy. We understand that you may have questions about how this website collects and uses information. We have prepared this statement to inform you of the privacy principles that govern Sydney Bed and Breakfast.com.au sites which are listed in this privacy statement ("Statement").
This Statement contains numerous general and technical details about the steps we take to respect your privacy concerns.
Securing the Transmission and Storage of Information
This website does not collect personally identifiable information from your computer when you browse this website and request pages from our servers. This means that, unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide us with personally identifiable information, we will not know your name, your e-mail address, or any other personally identifiable information. When you request a page from our web site, our servers log the information provided in the HTTP request header including the IP number, the time of the request, the URL of your request and other information that is provided in the HTTP header. We collect the HTTP request header information in order to make our website function correctly and provide you the functionality that you see on this website, as our servers use this information to deliver to you the pages on this website. We also use this information to better understand how visitors use our website and how we can better tune our website, its contents and functionality to meet your needs.
Information We Collect
When we need to collect personally identifiable information from you to provide you with a particular service we will ask you to supply us with the information we need. For example, if you would like us to send you a print catalogue (if available) or you request access to the exclusive catalogue section, we will ask you for information such as name, address, telephone number and email address. We will use your email address to send a confirmation and, if necessary, might use the other information to contact you for help to process your request. We will also use your email address to notify you about special offers and promotions as described in the E-Mail section of this Statement, but you can opt out of e-mails at any time.
We treat the information you provide to us as confidential information; it is, accordingly, subject to our company's security procedures and corporate policies regarding protection and use of confidential information.
After information reaches Sydney Bed and Breakfast it is stored on a secure server that resides behind firewalls designed to block unauthorized access from outside of Sydney Bed and Breakfast. Because laws applicable to personal information vary by country, our business operations may put in place additional measures that vary depending on the applicable legal requirements. Information collected on the sites covered by this Statement is generally processed and stored in Australia.

In addition, the service providers we use to serve and host our web content, and/or deliver our e-mails, use session and persistent cookies, to track the number of times Sydney Bed and Breakfast.com.au is accessed and whether the site was accessed from an advertisement or another linked site.
