Privacy is important, and we are committed to ensuring your participation in our important work protects your personal information. We are bound by the Privacy Act 1993 (as amended from time to time), associated privacy codes and the privacy provisions of other applicable legislation.
This policy describes the way we collect, hold, use and store your personal information.
What information do we collect, and why?
We may collect, store and use personal data to allow us to send you opportunities for involvement in activities we organise, to provide you with information about our group, projects and campaigns and to respond to your questions, comments or complaints.
We may also use your personal information for the purposes of our internal administrative research, planning, marketing, campaigns and project development.
How do we collect and hold information?
We collect personal information you provide us through our website or by email.
We hold personal information in our electronic records or in those of our third party cloud computing or other services.
How do we make sure your personal information is protected?
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorised access to or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorised access to systems where we store personal information.
Personal information is held only for as long as this remains relevant to the purpose for which it was collected.
Where you submit personal information for publication on our website, we will publish and otherwise use that information in accordance with the license you grant to us.
Personal information provided to third parties
Health not Handcuffs will not sell, rent or share your personal data with third party organisations, with some exceptions related to activities we invite you participate in:
- When you choose to petition a decision-maker through our website, your name, city/town and electorate will be forwarded to the decision-maker, but not your email or physical address;
- When you send an email through this site, for example to a member of Parliament, that email will come from your registered email address, not Health not Handcuffs, and hence will include the details you provide, often including your email address.
Unsolicited personal information
We don't usually collect unsolicited personal information.
Where we receive unsolicited personal information, we'll determine whether or not it would have been permissible to collect that personal information if it had been solicited. If we determine that collection would not have been permissible, to the extent permitted by law, we'll destroy or de-identify that personal information as soon as practicable.
If we determine that collection would have been permissible, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy.
