This Website Privacy Statement applies to the State of Home website and governs data collection and usage. By using the State of Home website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
State of Home collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address, or telephone number. State of Home also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your postcode, age, gender, preferences, interests and favourites. There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by State of Home. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by State of Home for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the State of Home website. State of Home encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from State of Home so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. State of Home is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the State of Home and State of Home family of websites.
USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
State of Home collects and uses your personal information to operate the State of Home website and deliver the services you have requested. State of Home also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from State of Home and its affiliates. State of Home may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered. State of Home does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. State of Home may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, State of Home may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to State of Home, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information. State of Home does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion or political affiliations without your explicit consent.
State of Home websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on State of Home or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of State of Home; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of State of Home, or the public.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise State of Home pages, or register with State of Home site or services, a cookie helps State of Home to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same State of Home website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the State of Home features that you customised.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the State of Home services or websites you visit.
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
State of Home secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. State of Home secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT
State of Home will occasionally update this Website Privacy Statement to reflect company and customer feedback. State of Home encourages you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how State of Home is protecting your information.
