This policy applies to the Helifix web site and explains how Helifix uses personal information collected through our web sites.
What kind of personal information does Helifix collect and how it is collected?
Helifix may collect personal information about users, merchants, advertisers and other businesses, which access or are displayed on the Helifix site. Information about businesses that appear in the Helifix directory, including personal information of individuals within those businesses, may be generally collected by Helifix to manage the services or products that the business purchases from Helifix.
In general, the personal information Helifix collects may include (but is not limited to) name, address, contact details, gender, occupation, in some cases membership of professional associations and, where relevant, financial information, including credit card information, banking details and income information.
Personal Information you provide: We store the personal information you enter on the Helifix site or otherwise give to Helifix. We obtain most personal information through the Helifix membership registration process and updates to membership details. You may provide information when you request or acquire a product or service from Helifix, provide a product or service to Helifix, complete a survey or questionnaire, enter a competition, participate in forums or when you communicate with Helifix by e-mail, telephone or in writing (for example if you contact customer service or provide feedback).
Automatic collection: Cookies: We may use a feature of your browser called a cookie to assign your computer a 'User ID'. Cookies do not contain information by which Helifix can identify you. They identify your computer to our servers. You may configure your browser so that you are notified before a cookie is downloaded or so that your browser does not accept cookies. Helifix may use information contained in cookies to make assumptions about the user of the computer and to provide users of that computer with focused advertising which Helifix believes may be of interest, based on that information. To disable your cookies, please refer to the help menu within your Internet browser.
Indirect collection: Helifix endeavours to collect personal information about an individual only from that individual. In some circumstances Helifix may obtain personal information from a third party. If you provide personal information about another person to Helifix, Helifix requires that you inform that person you have done so and provide them with a copy of this policy.
How does Helifix use the information you provide?
Helifix may use information it collects from you for the primary purpose for which it is collected and for such other secondary purposes that are related to the primary purpose of collection.
Helifix generally uses personal information to:
- • provide you with products or services you have requested;
- • personalise and customise your experiences on the Helifix sites;
- • help Helifix manage and enhance its services;
- • communicate with you;
- • provide you with ongoing information about opportunities on the Helifix site in which Helifix believes you may be interested; and
- • give you the opportunity from time to time to receive e-mail and 'e-newsletters' from Helifix.
In most cases where Helifix asks you to provide information about yourself, if you do not provide Helifix with that information, Helifix will not be able to provide you with the requested product or service. If you do not wish Helifix to contact you regarding other services or marketing, please call +64 (0)3 376 5205+61 (0)2 9669 1701.

Are my children at risk using the Helifix web site?
The safety of children is very important to us. We ask that children under the age of 16 have a parent or guardian verify their registration on web sites and the submission of online forms. While Helifix will make every reasonable effort to ensure that children's privacy and other rights are not compromised, it is ultimately the responsibility of parents or guardians to monitor their children's internet usage. Children should always ask a parent before sending any transmission over the internet.
Third Party Sites
Helifix acknowledges that you will click through to third party sites from our site, and thus recommends that you refer to the privacy statement of the sites you visit. Helifix's privacy statement is applicable for Helifix and its web site (as listed above), and assumes no responsibility for information and content of third party sites.
