Privacy Policy...

Thank you for visiting Old Dog Lures, a privately owned business designing and hand making fishing lures from timber and providing other fishing related products. We respect and protect the privacy of our users. This privacy policy tells you how we collect and use information.

Old Dog Lures is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) under the Privacy Act 1988 with respect to collection, use and disclosure of personal information.

Clickstream data

Clickstreams are the paths a user takes when navigating a website and the internet in general. When you visit the Old Dog Lures site, our servers may record the following information for statistical purposes:

  • the user's server (IP) address and machine name
  • the location details such as longitude, latitude, city, region and country
  • the date and time of visit to the site
  • the top level domain name
  • the pages accessed and documents downloaded
  • the number of bytes transmitted and received for each request
  • the previous site or page visited
  • search terms used
  • the type of browser used.

Old Dog Lures through its web hosting service may audit this information to determine the traffic through the server and to specific pages or applications. In order to deliver better services, we also perform statistical analysis to establish priorities and allocate resources.

No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect server logs. The statistics and log files may be preserved indefinitely by our web service provider and used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches and to ensure the integrity of the information supplied by the website.


A cookie is a short piece of data which is sent from a web server to a web browser on the user's machine when the browser visits the server's site. The cookie is stored on the user's machine, but it is not an executable program and cannot do anything to your machine. Whenever a web browser requests a file from the same web server that sent the cookie, the browser sends a copy of that cookie back to the server along with the request. In this way, the server knows you have visited before and can co-ordinate your access to different pages on its web site. A server cannot find out a name or email address, or anything about a user's computer, by using cookies. Cookies are essential in providing a seamless access to some online databases. Old Dog Lures uses first-party cookies to obtain session details for access to parts of our sites, one such use is to invite you to join our newsletter. Cookie information is not stored or collected by Old Dog Lures.

Google Analytics

In addition to web server logs, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Reports obtained from Google Analytics are used to help improve the efficiency and usability of this website.

Google Analytics uses first-party cookies and JavaScript code to gather statistics about how the website is accessed. It anonymously tracks how our visitors interact with this website, including where they came from, what they did on the site including such things as news registration. The information generated by the cookie and JavaScript code about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers located outside Australia. Google is based in the United States of America (USA). Should you wish to contact Google, you can find contact details on Google's Contact us page.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner described in Google's Privacy Policy and for the purposes set out above. Relevant legislation of the USA will apply. You can opt out of Google Analytics if you disable or refuse the cookie, disable JavaScript, or use the opt-out service provided by Google.

Analytics in general

Old Dog Lures uses other forms of analytics provided by the web hosting service ‘Shopify’. This is analysed purely for the purposes of providing information on visitors (anonymous) and those who have purchased (recorded). Such data is part of the normal functionality of an online shopping service.

Data collected in forms

There are some forms on the Old Dog Lures website which are used to collect personal information. Such forms may be as part of our ‘Contact Us’ or ‘Newsletter’ opt in function. The data collected is used wholly for the provision of providing a service as highlighted by the name of the function and for no other reason. Such data may be stored in a MailChimp email system to allow future contact. MailChimp may, or may not, have asked for your permission for such future contact, however, at any point after making your information available to us you may cancel any further contact. Details for this are clearly marked on the emails we send you from this service.

E-mail addresses and other personal information

Old Dog Lures will only record your e-mail address and personal information if you supply it to us, either by sending a message or completing and submitting a form.

The use of these applications requires the user to provide personal information. This information will be used only for the purpose for which you have provided it and will not be added to a mailing list unless you have asked us to. Nor will it be disclosed or redistributed unless it is authorised or required by an Australian law, court or tribunal order or you provide consent/permission to do so.

Collection of personal information

Personally identifiable information about you is collected only when you knowingly and voluntarily submit it to us, for example, as part of the purchase procedure from our on-line shop. It may be used for acknowledgement and training purposes or future reference unless we disclose other uses in this Privacy Statement or at the time of collection.

If you provide us with your email address, it will not be added to any other mailing list or disclosed without your consent.
