Use of “Cookies”
The Shack West website use “cookies” to help personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by our web server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
Cookies are provided as a convenience to you, to tell our web server that you have returned to a specific page. Cookies help to recall specific information on subsequent visits to our web site. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as your billing address, shipping address and so on. When you return to the same page on our website, the information you previously entered can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Shack West website features that you customized.

What we do with your personal information
Information collected by Shack West is used solely by Shack West. We use your information to communicate via telephone, electronic mail and social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+. We also use your information to send newsletters, product updates and other information we deem relevant.
How to be removed from our lists
If you have subscribed to one of our email lists and wish to be removed, simply follow the instructions in the email. You must unsubscribe using the email account to which the email was sent in plain text. Do not use HTML as our spam filter might reject your message.

Why we collect information
Shack West sometimes sends emails in the interest of promoting products and services, and informing customers of technical information, for example, planned service outages.
What we don’t do with your information
Shack West does not share your personal information with any other organisation regardless of their relationship with us, excepting as required by law, for example if requested by a law enforcement body such as a police force or the Australian Taxation Office.
