Your privacy is especially important to us. McPhee Freight Pty Ltd has developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and make use of personal information.
When accessing our website, McPhee Freight Pty Ltd will learn certain information about you during your visit. This policy outlines our commitment to protecting the privacy of the personal information that we collect either directly from you or via our website www.mcpheefreight.com.au.
We will only ever use the personal information that we collect from you for the purposes of providing our products and services to you, including communicating with you, and for our internal record keeping and marketing purposes. We will not share this information with any third party, except in conjunction with the products and services we are providing to you, or unless required to do so by law, as set out in the Privacy Act 1988.
You may request details of the personal information that we hold about you. If you believe that the information is incorrect or out of date, please contact us with your updated details, so that we can make changes.
Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilises a standard technology called “Cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website and your IP address.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone.
Use of Information
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other items and services to our customers and prospective customers.
McPhee Freight Pty Ltd will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us, nor will such information be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection.
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.

However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on our website may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL.
