Direct marketing communications

We may send you direct marketing communications and information about our equipment and services that we consider may be of interest to you. These communications may be sent in various forms, including mail, SMS, and email, in accordance with applicable marketing laws, such as the Spam Act 2003 (Cth). If you indicate a preference for a method of communication, we will endeavour to use that method whenever practical to do so.

In addition, at any time you may opt out of receiving marketing communications from us by contacting us via email at [email protected] or by using the opt-out facilities provided in the marketing communications and we will then ensure that your name is removed from our mailing list.

All communications will be directly from us; we do not and will not sell any of your personal information to third parties.


  • Images

Images you send to us for the purpose of selling equipment on your behalf can be used to advertise to prospective customers, and promote your equipment on third party sites like social media, classifieds, marketing materials and private email.

Rig Sales Australia uses the Premium ShortPixel Plugin which automatically attempts to remove all EXIF data from all images uploaded to this website before they are published. Removing this information aids in helping to increase the load speed of the website.

EXIF is a set of various pieces of information that are automatically embedded into the image upon creation including GPS location.

If you supply images for use on this website and you are overly concerned about hidden data you can remove it easily yourself before sending it. Instructions on how to remove exif data yourself can be easily found via search engines.

  • Video

We use a third-party application for showing product videos on some pages. The YouTube API Loading is restricted to only be on pages with YouTube embedded videos. YouTube collects data from viewers of these videos via a cookie. You can access the privacy policy of YouTube and all Google related products here https://policies.google.com/privacy
