Illegal Privacy Breach: File complaint under Australian Privacy Act 1988
According to the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) and Information Privacy Act 2014 an individual can file a complaint to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) about the privacy breach of handling of your personal information by Australian and Norfolk Island government agencies and private sector organizations who are covered by the Privacy Act.
The simple procedure that can be executed by the individual are in order to file the complaint they should know that it is free to file a complaint against the accused entity. However, the individual does not require a lawyer but in case if they do decide to hire a lawyer, individual would be liable to pay for the lawyer themself. The Office of Australian Information Commissioner investigates privacy complaints from individuals about Australian and Norfolk Island government agencies, and private sector organizations which are enlisted and influenced by the Privacy Act 1988. Though, the Privacy Act does not include or influence the state and territory government agencies, but the OAIC does investigate complaints about ACT public sector agencies under the Information Privacy Act 2014 (ACT).
Furthermore, the OAIC intends to resolve complaints as rapidly as it is possible.

Complaints filed are normally resolved through conciliation. The individual also possess the option to withdraw the complaint at any time.
This procedure would empower the clients and enable them to claim their rights in case of breach and protect their information according to Australian laws and regulations while they are provided with bookkeeping Sydney service.

Web hosting is a type of internet hosting service which will allow an organization or individual to make their website which will be accessible through World Wide Web. This is the location and home of your website.
At present there are lots of web hosting companies and they are serving clients from all over the world. So it is really simple to find a web hosting company. But is it all? No, this is just beginning. You web business completely dependable on your hosting provider company. Hosting Provider Company plays a vital role to increase and spread your business. Normally two types of hosting operation services are available. They are
- LINUX operating platform
- WINDOWS operating platform
Hosting service varies with the working procedure of your website. If you are running any personal webpage then single page hosting is enough for you. But if you are planning to run an e-commerce site then you must need to have SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) hosting. Let’s have a look on different types of hosting services:
- Free hosting service:
For this type of hosting service you don’t need to pay any money. Normally different types of large companies offer these types of free web hosting services to their clients as a part of their advertisement. But these hosting services are very limited with few features only. Not recommended for any business or organizational website. This hosting service is suitable for personal hobby type or biography type websites.
- Shared web hosting service:
It is a common server platform which can be shared by lots of domains. Normally all of the domains share common resources as like as CPU and RAM. Basic features are available in this type of hosting but it is not perfect for updated features. Moreover this hosting service is not so secured and safe. Resellers sell this type of hosting service.
- Virtual Dedicated Server:
This hosting is also known as VPS (Virtual Private Server). Here server resources are divided into different virtual servers. Here the resources will be allocated in such a way that they will not reflect the underlying hardware directly. It allows the users to get the access to their own virtual space. Here customers are allowed to maintain the server.
- Dedicated hosting service:
This is a type of hosting service where users will get their own web servers with full control of the server. Here users will get root access for LINUX and administrator access for WINDOWS administrator access. As the users will get the root and administrative access so the users are fully responsible for the maintenance and the security of the server.
- Managed hosting service:
Although the users will get their own Web server but still they will not have the full control of the server. That means users don’t have any type of access. Users may manage their data through FTP or other tools. The provider is fully responsible for the maintenance and the security of the server.
- Cloud hosting:
It is a new type of hosting technology. In this platform, customers get scalable, powerful and reliable hosting service based on utility billing and clustered load-balanced servers. It is more secured and reliable as other computers of the cloud can support you if a single piece part of your computer goes down. At the same time, it doesn’t face much problem for local power failure problem or natural disasters.
These are the main type of hosting services. There are some more types of hosting services but those are not so effective. Besides these there are some specific hosting services which are also helpful and effective for clients. Let’s have a look on them:
- E-mail hosting service:
Here users get the option to create e-mail addresses through a domain name. The email address can be john@(domain name). at present, different types of companies are using this hosting service to ensure secured email platform for their employee.
- Image hosting service:
This hosting service allows users to upload images in a web server and create different name for each and every image. Then user can share that image with others by using that specific image link.
- Shopping cart software hosting:
If you want to run an e-commerce website then this hosting service is mandatory for you. Clients of your e-commerce website will be able to do shopping smoothly through this hosting service.
Besides these there are few more hosting services. You have to select your suitable hosting service depending on your website and purpose. Don’t forget to select a reliable and trusted hosting service provider as the success of your website depends on the quality and service of your hosting provider.
Be careful about few issues before selecting any hosting provider:
It is really important to have personal websites for any kind of business. To cope with the present technology based world, your company must needs to have a website to express your products and services to your clients easily. It is also simple to design a professional website for your company. If you want then you may go to professional web developers and they will design and develop a website for you at a reasonable price. It is also simple to find out professional web developers in your locality. But still you must need to have some knowledge on web hosting. You have to be careful about some issues before selecting any web hosting service. Let’s have a look on them:
- Amount of web space:
It is one of the most important parts of web hosting service. Different types of websites need different amount of web spaces. So before selecting any web hosting service, you need to know the total spaces of that web hosting service. Sometimes you may need more spaces Athan the provided spaces of your selected hosting service. If you want to build a written content based website then 1GB web hosting is really enough for you. Frankly it is really difficult to use half GB space for a written content based website. But if you have a plan to add videos, audios and lots of images then it is better to select unlimited space. There are different types of hosting packages depending on web space. Most of the hosting providers offer unlimited space within affordable budget of clients. So you just need to select your desired package based on the space. We website also should load quick on Google.
- Bandwidth allotment:
Although most of the hosting providers offer unlimited bandwidth but still some of the providers offer limited bandwidth to their clients. Limited bandwidth means a specific amount of visitors will be able to visit your page or website per day and per month. That means, this type of fixed bandwidth is really harmful for your business. You website will be down after a certain amount of visits and you may lose some potential clients at that moment. So it is better to select unlimited bandwidth always.
- Customer support:
If you are a newbie or if you are not so experienced in this hosting sector then you may need lots of helps to know details for your hosting service. At the same time, you may face different types of difficulties. So it is really important to get real and useful customer support from your hosting providers. So before selecting your permanent hosting provider, don’t forget to check the quality of their customer services. Some of the hosting providers have different types of customer services as like as e-mail support, phone support, live chat support etc. So if your providers have different types of customer support systems then it will help you a lot to face the difficulties and to know more about hosting services.
- Payment planning:
As there are different types of hosting plans so price of these services vary also. At the same time, the annual or monthly price varies from providers to providers. Most of the providers have monthly, quarterly and annual payment plans. If you are new in business with a specific provider then you may select monthly plan as a test drive. If the provider can impress you with quality and service then you may move for annual or quarterly plan. By the way, I found that annual charge is always less comparing the monthly charge of any hosting provider.
- Other’s reviews on technical parts:
All of the hosting providers offer almost same type of technical services to their clients. But do they provide same services? You have to careful about other’s reviews on the technical services of a hosting provider to have a look on the real and actual scenario. There are few websites where real users write reviews on the services of their hosting providers. It is really important to get the real scenario and then it will help you to select a suitable hosting provider for yourself.
- E-mail, auto-responders and Mail forwarding:
All of the website owners want to get their e-mail address in their own domain address as like as yourname@your_domain_name.com. If you want to build a business website for your business, like tax return Sydney CBD then it is the most important part to have e-mail address in your business domain. So please check if your hosting provider allows you to create your e-mail address in your domain or not. At the same time, it is better to select a hosting provider who offer auto-responders and mail forwarding options. Although most of the hosting providers offer these services but still it is better to check their customer reviews in this issue.
- Control panel:
A smooth and easy control panel is the primary condition of a smooth and attractive website. At the same time, you need to have a smooth control panel to develop and run your website easily. Normally, a control panel helps you to add content, delete content, manage content, development of your website, and manage e-mail address easily and regularly. But if the provider fails to provide a smooth and easy control panel then each and every time you have to contact with their support team to get directions which is really boring and waste of time. So please check the control panels of different hosting providers before selecting your hosting provider.
Hosting business sector is a strange and surprising sector. So don’t be so impress with the high price of your hosting provider as here high price doesn’t indicate super quality and speedy service. But have a look on the customer reviews and check their features before selecting anyone finally. Don’t forget to have a look on my given points also. Then you may select a suitable hosting provider for your business.
Web design basic and elements
It is really important to have a website for your company, products or services. At the same time, some people have websites for their personal purpose and blogging also. So if you are a newbie and if you want to make a website for your business or personal purpose then it is better to know about web design first.
So what is web design?
Web design means the creation of websites and presentation of your contents on web pages. A user will be able to visit your web pages by a web browser through internet. The person who design and create a website is known as web designer. Sometimes they are known as web developer also. To design a website, web designers follow some specific steps and rules. Although overall design for all websites is not same but the basic design and steps are almost same. There are some common elements for web design and all of the web designers use these common elements for the design and developments of a website. Let’s have a look on those common elements:
This is the process or way to set the contents, ads, graphics and texts in a specific website. If you want to design and develop your website personally then you have to fix the basic layout first. Expert web designers always try to use some exceptional and attractive layout for their design. As a newbie you may have a look on some websites and then you may fix layout for your website. You have to be careful about the layout so that your audience can get desired information easily from your website. This basic layout is the foundation of your website.
Actually it is not a single element but a package of few useful and important elements. Graphics includes logo, clipart, icon, photos etc. All of these are really important to attract audiences to your websites. At the same time, they need to be placed in such a way so that your site can be attractive but fast. Too much use of graphics can make your website slow. Moreover perfect use of graphics can make your site user friendly which is really positive for your site.
Although most of the web browsers can read few selected fonts but still there are lots of things to improve in the sector of fonts. As a web designer you have to select fonts from those selected fonts. Fonts can increase the beauty and performance of your website. So it is really important to be careful about fonts. At the same time, fonts play vital role to attract audiences.
It is another important thing for your web site. The beauty and design of a website depends on the selection of colors. You may use bright colors or light colors but all depend on the design of your website. Now days, most of the designers love to use bright and exceptional colors to attract more audiences and to be different from others.
Your business will depend on contents. Contents can be written document, video or audio. Suppose, you are selling a product and that is why you are running a website to boost your business. So you have to attract your clients through your contents so that your clients buy your products rather than your competitors. At the same time, if you have any plan to earn through advertisements then it is important to have useful and perfect SEO in your site. Contents are also important to bring your website at the top of the search engines. But obviously, you contents need to be related with the niche of your website. If your audiences get irrelevant contents in your website then they will not visit your website again which is negative for your website. So keep and manage relevant and useful contents in your website.
Although it was very common to use flash in websites but now designers don’t want to use flash. Why? Because, flash makes a website slower and that is why the site takes much time to load which is not a sign of a user friendly websites. So as a designer or owner of a site, it is better to avoid flash in your website. You may use light animation to attract your clients.
Although it is a part of your layout but still I would love to keep it as a different element for a website. At present, there are lots of user friendly website on a product or niche. You have to bring something different and attractive in your site. So you can start with the navigation system. User friendly navigation is the primary condition to attract clients and that is why you have to design user friendly navigation in your website. Don’t make your site so complex but try to keep it clean and easy for your clients/audiences.
Most of the genius web designers try to engage their audiences with their websites. That is why they keep comment option in their websites which help them to understand the requirements of their clients. Much interaction means much traffic which is really helpful for your website. So as a designer, you have to be careful about this element also.
Obviously, these are not all element but as a web designer you have to be careful about these elements first. Implementation of these elements always brings some positive signs for a website. You may have a look in search engines to learn more about web designs.
