Below is our website privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

Benwest Investment Services Pty Ltd trading as Benwest (“Benwest”) operates the website at www. benwest.com. It is Benwest’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

WEBSITE VISITORS

Like most website operators, Benwest collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Benwest’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how Benwest’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Benwest may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate form, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Benwest also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Benwest does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

Certain visitors to Benwest’s websites choose to interact with Benwest in ways that require Benwest to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Benwest gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Benwest collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Benwest. Benwest does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Benwest’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Benwest will not rent or sell personally-identifying information or potentially personally-identifying information to anyone.
