We retain the e-mail addresses of people who send emails to us through this

third party without the consent of the person who originally emailed us.

, which may be viewed online at a variety of locations.
In a nutshell, we don't send out any spam emails. Nor do we do business with
any individual or company who does. We encourage all our visitors to do likewise.
We also use anti-spam filtering on our emails and we report any Australian
who spams us to the proper authorities on receipt of their spam. Again, we
encourage our visitors to do likewise in countries which have equivalent
legislation to Australia. Or to request their legislators enact similar laws
in countries which don't yet have anti-spam legislation; or to toughen existing
laws up to Australian anti-spam standards where those laws are weak.
Listings shown on SouthBurnett.Biz which contain email addresses are shown
for the purpose of inviting contact from the public which is directly
to the services that an individual business or organisation offers.
Email contacts are not
to be taken as a general invitation for email
spam, and are not to be used to construct mailing lists.
SouthBurnett.Biz actively encourages anyone who is spammed to report that
spam to the
Communications and Media Authority
(ACMA) so that it can take appropriate
action against the spammer under the terms of the Australian Spam Act
SouthBurnett.Biz also actively monitors our database at all times and employs
techniques which detect attempted construction of email lists. We will report
any person who attempts to abuse this website's service to ACMA without

SouthBurnett.Biz grew from data that was originally collected by the Tarong
Business Program in early 2000. This program was a three year project designed
to encourage contractors at the Tarong North power station construction site
to use local goods and services.
The Tarong Business Program itself was an initiative of the former Kingaroy
Shire Council's Economic Development Unit and was sponsored by Kingaroy Shire
Rio Tinto Coal Australia
, the Department
of Employment and Workplace Relations, the Department of State Development
CTC Employment Services
Shire Council and Rosalie Shire Council.
The generous assistance and support of the program's founding sponsors made
the original SouthBurnett.Biz web site possible. And when the program concluded
in 2002 it was generally felt that the site was so useful for the South Burnett
region as a whole that it should be continued.
SouthBurnett.Biz has been maintained by southburnett.com.au ever since that
time and it forms part of the southburnett.com.au regional network. The current
version of the site you're viewing (version 4.1) was launched on 21-May-10.
