If you leave a review on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another review. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

4. EMBEDDED CONTENT FROM OTHER WEBSITES

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

5. HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA

If you leave a review, the review and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up reviews or comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

A total of three (3) internal staff members of Bankstown Sound & Marine can also see and edit that information.
