1. Your personal information is important to us
2. Collecting personal information about you
If you do not log in as a STEYR Motors Australia Dealer whenever you visit our site, our servers automatically record information about your usage of the Network such as the time of the visit, its duration and the pages which you visit. This is intended to help us to understand what parts of our Network our users enjoy the most, and to help us to ensure that any advertising is most directly relevant to your interests. The information we collect about you remains anonymous, and we do not link it to any other personal information. Therefore if you have not identified yourself on the site, such as by registering for Membership or logging on as a member, we will not link a record of your usage of our Network to you personally.
If you do not want us to retain any information at all, even in an anonymous form, you can use the Preferences on your browser program to remove all cookies and set the browser not to accept cookies in the future.
If you log in as a STEYR Motors Australia Dealer once you have become a STEYR Motors Australia Dealer, we collect personal information about you in order to provide you with the full benefits of being an account holder. When you first register for an account, we collect information from you directly and also from time to time thereafter ask you to provide us updated or additional information.
Once you have logged on as a Dealer, we keep a record of how you use the Network. This helps us to build a profile of what interests you, so that we can improve your experience of the Network and publish you information that is relevant to your interests.
Any further collection of your personal information than that explained above will only occur with consent from you. STEYR Motors Australia only collects information from your use of our Network. We do not collect information about you from other organizations or from websites outside the Network that you may visit.
Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user’s browser. The cookies simply contain a unique identifier which helps us to know what our customers find interesting and useful on our website, almost like a continuing questionnaire.
Like many web site operators, STEYR Motors Australia also uses a Log Analyser to measure and analyse the internet usage across the Network. STEYR Motors Australia uses Log Analyser tracking code to collect the following core information on the usage of the STEYR Motors Australia network:
a. The number of page views (or page impressions) that occur on the Network
b. The number of unique visitors to the Network
c. How long these unique visitors (on average) spend on the Network when they do visit and
d. Common entry and exit points into the Network.
This aggregate, non-personal information is collated by the Log Analyser and used by STEYR Motors Australia to assist in analysing the usage of the Network. This software stores a “cookie” in the browser, which contains a unique identifier. This enables the Log Analyser to track the number of unique visitors to the Network. This information is collected and aggregated by the Log Analyser, and in no way does this unique identifier identify a user personally. STEYR Motors Australia does not and will not marry any data collected by the Log Analyser with any personal information collected on the Network.
If cookies are disabled in your browser, then the Log Analyser cannot track you as a unique visitor, and will consider you as a new visitor each time you browse a new page on the Network.
4. Using and disclosing your personal information
We will not give any of your personal information to advertisers or any other organisation without your express consent.

In addition, our employees and the contractors who provide services related to our information systems are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by STEYR Motors Australia.
