Teacher's Marketplace® (and/or our agents or affiliates) may collect online and use personally identifiable information from our online visitors: (1) to process and fulfil transactions; (2) in connection with contests, games, surveys, forums, subscription registrations, content submissions, classroom activities, message boards, blogs and our requests for suggestions; (3) to customise the content of our site for our visitors current and future needs; and (4) to provide service related announcements to you. We may even share such information between the buyers and sellers on our site in connection with transactions between such buyers and sellers. In addition, this personally identifiable information may be used to provide our visitors, via e-mail or other means, information about materials and activities that may be of interest to them, including products or services of third parties. For these reasons, we may share such information with third parties. If you are an individual who has provided us with your personal information online or offline and you do not want us to share your information with third parties, or if there is a media notification that you no longer want to receive from us, please let us know by sending us your full name, e-mail and request to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE

During the Sign Up process, you will also have the opportunity to provide a public Member Biography about yourself and the Teaching Content that you wish to make available through Teacher's Marketplace®. Sellers choose to provide as much or as little information about themselves in your public Member Profile as you see fit. We may also have open message boards or blogs where you can provide any personal information that you choose.

ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You can view any personally identifiable information we have collected from you in your ‘My Account’ page by signing in to your seller homepage. Here you will be able to add, edit, or remove information as you see fit.
USE OF IP ADDRESSES
We collect IP addresses to obtain aggregate information on the use of TeachersMarketplace.com.au. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by a Web server when you're on the Web. When you are on our site, we have a back-end server that logs your computer's IP address. We only use the information we find out from tracking IP addresses in the aggregate, such as how many users entered a specific area of our site, and not to track a specific IP address to identify an individual user. However, we may use such information to identify a user if we feel that there are or may be safety and/or security issues or to comply with legal requirements.
We ensure that all personally and non-personally identifiable information that we receive via the internet is secure against unauthorised access. This information is kept in a safe and secure system isolated from direct connection to the internet. This means that no-one except us will ever see the information that our visitors send to us, unless we indicate otherwise, or it is in your Member Biography, message board or blog area. We will give out personal information as required by law, for example to comply with a court order or subpoena or to assist in criminal investigations. We may also give out personal information when we deem it advisable in order to protect the safety and security of our sites and visitors to our sites. We use secure server software over a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) line to protect your credit card information. It encrypts all of your personal information so that this information cannot be read as it travels to our ordering system, and once it is received, it is stored in a location not accessible via the internet.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Teachersmarketplace.com.au contains links to enable you to visit other websites of interest. We do not have any control over those other websites. Therefore, once you have used these links to leave our site, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the particular website in question.
