  • To render services related to Bogong business such as warranty or after sales services.
  • To provide you with information about products, service and/or special offers.
  • To obtain opinions or comments about products and/or services.
  • To record statistical data for marketing analysis.

Bogong recognises the trust with which individuals provide personal information, and such information will not be used or disclosed for any other purposes than those given above without your consent, except in exceptional cases when disclosure may be required by law or is necessary to protect the rights or property of Bogong, or any member of the public.

Bogong will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to keep secure any personal information recorded, and to keep this information accurate and up to date. The information is stored on secure servers if in digital format, or in locked areas if in hardcopy format. Bogong employees are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by Bogong. However, security of communications over the Internet cannot be guaranteed, and therefore absolute assurance that information will be secure at all times cannot be given. Bogong will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to personal information.

Bogong provides links to web sites outside of the Bogong site. These linked sites are not under the control of Bogong, and Bogong is not responsible for the conduct of companies linked to the Bogong website.

Comodo Trusted Site Seal
SSL Certificate

The Bogong website has security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the Information under our control, including credit card information that is submitted to us. When users place orders or access their account information, the Site uses 256-bit secure server software (SSL), which encrypts all information users' input before it is sent to us. In addition, we do not store user's credit card numbers in their online accounts so if someone obtains your account log in information, they will not be able to view a user's credit card number. Thus, we have taken steps to protect the information we collect from you from unauthorised access. Unfortunately, no system is perfect; therefore, Bogong makes no representations or warranties with regard to the sufficiency of these security measures. Bogong shall not be responsible for any actual or consequential damages that result from a lapse in compliance with this Privacy Policy because of a security breach or technical malfunction.
