(b) any of ClassBento’s services made available on the Website.
(together, the “Services”)
In order to effectively optimise use of the Services, ClassBento needs to collect personal information from each user, and process that personal information. ClassBento may use common technologies such as cookies and web beacons to keep track of users’ interactions with the Website to improve the quality of its Services. ClassBento may also collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address to track and aggregate non-personally identifiable information, your referring website addresses, browser type, domain name, and access times.
How Your Information is Used
(a) Information you provide – When you register for the Website, you may be required to provide personal information. ClassBento may utilise the information you submit under your account in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of ClassBento’s Services and/or if required to dislcose this information to satisfy any applicable law, legal requirement, police investigation or request from a Government authority. At its sole discretion, ClassBento may share your personal information with third parties who provide services which are complementary to the Services provided by ClassBento.
(b) Payment Information – You may be required to provide additional personal information (including proof of identification documents) to ClassBento’s third party payment applications such as Stripe and Paypal. ClassBento does not store payment details directly and you expressly acknowledge and agree that ClassBento is not liable for any loss of personal information resulting from a breach of security of the Stripe and Paypal platforms.
(d) Log information – When you access the Services, ClassBento’s servers automatically record certain information. These server logs may include information such as your web request, your interaction with a service, IP address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your account.

ClassBento may use your email address to communicate with you about ClassBento’s services. ClassBento may send email or other communications to any person whose email address or contact details have been provided to ClassBento by a former or current user of the Website. If you do not wish to receive these emails or other communications, you must contact ClassBento at [email protected]
In addition to the above, ClassBento may use the information ClassBento collects to:
(a) Provide, maintain, protect, and improve ClassBento’s Services (including advertising services) and develop new Services; and
(b) Protect the rights or property of ClassBento or its users.
If ClassBento uses this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, then ClassBento will ask for your consent prior to such use.
ClassBento processes personal information on its servers in New South Australia, and you consent to your personal information being processed and in that location.
ClassBento takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorised access to or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of ClassBento’s data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, including appropriate encryption and physical security measures to guard against unauthorised access to systems where ClassBento stores personal data.
Accessing and updating personal information
When you use the Services, ClassBento makes good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes.
ClassBento asks individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and ClassBento may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate costs and/or technical effort, jeopardise the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. Because of the way ClassBento maintains certain Services in connection with the Website, after you delete your information, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from ClassBento’s active servers and may remain in ClassBento’s backup systems.
When ClassBento receives formal written complaints, it is ClassBento’s policy to contact the complaining user regarding his or her concerns.
