Thank you for visiting Leading Web Design, LeadingWeb.Design (referred to in this policy as “the Website”).
The term ‘Personal Information’ refers to any information that could easily be linked to your identity, including (but not limited to) your name, your contact information, contact address, phone number, and any other information that could be used to identify you as an individual.
We may ask you for, or you may submit, personal information when you use the services offered on the Website.
While using the Website or the services offered on the Website, some non-identifiable information may be collected from you or your computer, such as searches performed or web pages viewed within the Website, as well as technical data such as your host IP address, browser type, operating system, device information, and other similar data.
We may also aggregate demographic information collected from our users in a manner which does not identify any one individual; as well as information gathered offline in connection with the Service, obtain non-identifiable information from third-party sources, and develop aggregate information by anonymising previously collected personally identifiable information.
While all efforts are made to ensure non-identifiable data does not include personal information, this may inadvertently occur. If at any point you believe that we have inadvertently collected your personal information, please notify us at LeadingWeb.Design/contact-us/.
How and why we use your information
We collect your information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you, and providing information to our clients and marketing. We may also use your information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary service, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. When we collect your information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.
Your Personal Information may be used or disclosed in a number of circumstances including the following:
- Sharing your personal information collected in connection with providing the Service.
- Using your personal information to respond to your inquiries or requests.
- Using your personal information to send you emails from time to time about our services
- Sharing your personal information with third parties directly in relation to a service you have requested from us where you have consented to this use or disclosure. We urge you to read the privacy practices of all our Third-Party Vendors before submitting any personally identifiable information through the Service.
- Transferring your personal information in connection with the sale or merger or change of control of the Website with which your personal information is associated.
- Sharing your personal information with an affiliate of the Website who is in the same corporate family as us as long as their privacy practices are substantially similar to ours.
- Where required or authorised by law.
Non-personally identifiable or aggregate information may be used by us for any purposes permitted by Australian law and may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify you.
Keeping Your Information Up to Date

Protection for Children
We generally do not collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. When we become aware that personally identifiable information from a child under 13 has been collected without such child’s parent or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.
As a convenience to you, we may provide links to third-party Services from within our Service. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third-party sites. When you link away from our Service, you do so at your own risk.
The internet is world wide with servers and data centres located all over the world. We will generally host your website closest to your customer base for fast response times.
