We recognise the importance of your privacy and understand your concerns about the security of your personal information. We are committed to protecting any personal information about you that we hold in accordance with privacy legislation, including the National Privacy Principles within the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
Personal information is information or opinion that personally identifies you, such as your name, email address and contact details.
Collecting personal information
We may from time to time collect personal information about you from a variety of sources including:
(a) directly from you, such as through a form on this website; (b) from third parties such as our related companies, partners, clients, vendors or your representatives; or (c) from publicly available information.
Why we collect personal information and how we use it
We collect personal information about you to provide you with our services and for related purposes such as:
(a) communicating with you, including responding to any questions; (b) helping us to identify and inform you about our services that may be of interest to you; (c) do other things necessary and incidental to our provisions of services to you; and (d) for general business management, including enhancement of our services, internal accounting and administration purposes.
If you do not provide us with your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with our services. If we no longer need to use your personal information, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify it. We collect personal information in order to fulfil our core work: engaging with the public, raising awareness and fundraising. To help us be effective, efficient and informed, we collect information to ensure a complete and accurate record of your history and engagement.
Online Activity and Social Media
We also use tools that tell us when a computer or device has visited or accessed our content, and allow us to tailor advertising both on our websites and through advertising networks on other websites based on your visits or behaviour through cookies on your device. You can control how cookies are used and for what through the settings on your chosen browser.
Disclosure of personal information
We may share your personal information:
(a) with any company related to us; (b) with certain service providers such as providers of the electronic systems we use to collect and store your personal information and other service providers we use to help us run aspects of our business efficiently; and (c) if we are required or authorised by law to do so.
Occasionally, we might use your personal information for other purposes or share your personal information with another organisation because you’d expect us to or we have told you we will or we believe it is necessary to do so to:
(a) provide you with a service which you have requested; or (b) protect our interests; for example, disclosure to a court in the event of legal action to which we are a party.
We’d like to keep you up-to-date, unless you’ve asked us not to. You can choose not to receive marketing information from us by contacting us on firstname.lastname@example.org. You agree that this consent waives any requirement for us to include this unsubscribe message in every marketing communication you receive from us.
Security of your personal information
We take reasonable steps to keep your personal information secure. Only authorised users can access your personal information. Unfortunately, we can’t give you an absolute guarantee that your information is always secure, as no data sent over the internet is 100% secure. While we will do our best, we can’t be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information.
Changes to your personal information
We will try to keep all of your personal information current and up to date, but it’s your responsibility to ensure the correctness of the personal information and identify any errors or changes to it.
