Data Sharing

We may remove parts of data that can identify you and share anonymized data with other parties. We may also combine your information with other information in a way that it is no longer associated with you and share that aggregated information.

Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting (User Content), becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings that you set. Once you have shared User Content or made it public, that User Content may be re-shared by others. birdsnest bears no responsibility over user generated content.


We use secure servers, encryption, and other commercially reasonable safeguards to help keep your personal information protected from unauthorised access, changes, or leaks; and take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account.

However, birdsnest is not liable and cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to birdsnest or guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

With your help, your information can remain secure. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to emails between you and birdsnest, at all times. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes the social media services you connect to birdsnest make to their services. We are not responsible for the functionality, privacy, or security measures of any other organisation.

Payment Process

The payment process is protected by industry standard 128 bit SSL (SecureSocket Layer) encryption between the customer’s browser and the birdsnest website, and again between the birdsnest site and the payment gateway. This prevents transaction information from being intercepted as it travels between the respective servers/computers. Our online merchant is Westpac; and our payment gateway is E-Way, who adheres to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) to ensure the protection of your payment information.

Customer credit card details are collected at each order and are never stored on the web server in any format. This eliminates the risk of customer’s financial information being accessed by any third-party.

In accordance with the Notifiable Data Breaches scheme, we’re committed to promptly notifying you and relevant authorities if a data breach occurs that is likely to result in serious harm to you.


You have the right to:

  • Access your personal information on request
  • Request corrections
  • Object to how we’re using your information
