Thank you for visiting Australian Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner Directory, a production of Rigel Innovations Pty Ltd ("ATCMPD", "we", "us" or "our"). At ATCMPD, we respect your privacy, and we understand the importance of the information you entrust to us. This Privacy Policy describes our practices concerning the information collected through our website or any of our related applications (the “Services”). Below we describe what information we collect when you use the Services, how we protect that information, with whom we share it, and what your privacy options are. By using the Services, you consent to our collection and use of your data as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy only applies to properties we own and operate. Our properties may provide links to third party websites and this Privacy Policy will not apply to any information you may provide while on such third party websites. We will continue to evaluate this Privacy Policy against new technologies, business practices, and our users’ needs, and may make changes to the Privacy Policy accordingly. Please check this page periodically for updates. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the updated Privacy Policy here, along with its effective date, and notify you by email or by means of a notice on our website.

The Information We Gather

We collects information at this site in two ways:

1. Information you provide to us

  • Account Information: You may choose to create an account and provide us with information in order to use certain services or to take advantage of special offers. If you create an account on ATCMPD, we may store and use information such as your full name, address, company name, email address and postcode.  You can always edit some of the information associated with your account after you log in to your account, or if you believe that an unauthorized account has been created using your name, or likeness, you can request its removal here.
  • Public Content: You may also choose to post content (such as business address, services, photos etc.) that may be shared with others through our Services or through your Facebook account. The information that you post to the Services is intended to be available for other users of ATCMPD to read, including your posted content about businesses/services with which you transact through the Services. We may display this information on the Services, share it with businesses, and further distribute it to a wider audience through third party sites and services.
  • If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
  • We may ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.

2. Information we collect when you use the services

When you use the Services, we automatically collect and store certain information about your computer or device and your activities, including:

  • Information about your computer or device you use to access the service, including (where available) your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration, to filter traffic, to look up user domains and to report on statistics.
  • Information about your activity on the Services (e.g., your search queries, search results selected, clicks, pages viewed, how long you visited our Services, etc.)

Cookies and Online Advertising

Cookies: We, and third parties with whom we partner, may use cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and similar files or technologies to collect and store information in in respect to your use of the Services and third party websites. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer that enables us to recognize you (for example, as a registered user) when you visit our website, store your preferences and settings, enhance your experience by delivering content specific to your interests, perform research and analytics, track your use of our Services, and assist with security and administrative functions. Cookies may be persistent or stored only during an individual session. To understand more about cookies, click here. Managing your Cookie Settings: Most browsers are set to automatically allow cookies. Please note it may be possible to disable some (but not all) Cookies through your device or browser settings, but doing so may affect your ability to use the Service. In addition, deleting or disabling cookies on one browser is unlikely to delete them on other browsers or other computers. Thus, you may have to delete or disable cookies in more than one location. Major browsers provide users with various options when it comes to cookies. Users can usually set their browsers to block all third-party cookies (which are those set by third-party companies collecting information on websites operated by other companies), block all cookies (including first-party cookies such as the ones ATCMPD uses to collect search activity information about its users), or block specific cookies. A pixel tag (also called a web beacon or clear GIF) is a tiny graphic with a unique identifier, embedded invisibly on a webpage (or an online ad or email), and is used to count or track things like activity on a webpage or ad impressions or clicks, as well as to access cookies stored on users’ computers. ATCMPD pixel tags are used to measure the popularity of our various pages, features and services. Advertising company pixel tags are used to measure the number of ad impressions and the performance of ads on our site, and to access the advertising company’s cookies placed on your computer. Data analytics company pixel tags are used to aggregate information about our advertising and your engagement with our site for market research, product improvement, revenue tracking and advertising optimization. Third parties whose products or services are accessible or advertised through the Services, including social networking services, may also use cookies or similar tools, and we advise you to check their privacy policies for information about their cookies and other practices.
