Third party sharing Personal Information
In order to manage workflows necessary to meet our service commitments, our office may engage third party service providers (whom operate either locally or offshore) as and when required.

BlueRock does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. BlueRock may contact you, from time to time, on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you.

Personal Information Protection
BlueRock secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. BlueRock secures the personal ID information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected using encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
BlueRock uses “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise the BlueRock website, or register with the BlueRock website or services, a cookie helps BlueRock recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same BlueRock website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use BlueRock website features that you customised.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the BlueRock services or Web sites you visit.
If you wish to make a complaint about how your personal information is being handled, we would like to ask you to contact us. We are committed to finding a solution to your query. Please contact us either by the contact form or call our office.

BlueRock will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. BlueRock encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how BlueRock is protecting your information.
