This policy outlines our ongoing obligations to you in respect of how we manage your Personal Information.
We have adopted as much as practicable the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act). The NPPs govern the way in which we collect, use, disclose, store, secure and dispose of your Personal Information.
ACTApple is excluded from Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) due to the size and nature of the organisation. However, we have chosen to adopt APPs guidelines wherever possible to help protect our users information and privacy, and also assist our members in managing their own information in our website.
A copy of the Australian Privacy Principles and how organisations are determined to be included or excluded from the legislation may be obtained from the website of The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner at www.aoic.gov.au
What is Personal Information and why do we collect it?
Personal Information is information that identifies an individual. Examples of Personal Information we may collect if you provide it include: your name and email address, mailing or postal address, and phone number.
This Personal Information is obtained via our website when you register to access content or choose to pay for membership using the website service.
We only collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you.
When we collect Personal Information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.
If you choose to register a logon account on our website, you can check, update or delete details collected when you register by using the “Profile” link on the website. This also allows you to totally delete your user ID and any related information from the site.
Sensitive information is defined in the Privacy Act to include information or opinion about such things as an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a trade union or other professional body, criminal record or health information.
We do not ask for, collect or store Sensitive information.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your Personal Information only from you.
Our website accepts payments through PayPal. When processing payments, some data you enter in the ACTApple store page will be passed to PayPal, including information required to process or support the payment – typically this is just the purchase description, total value, and email address.
The ACTApple website does not collect or store any financial information such as credit card details as this is managed directly by the PayPal service when you select to use it for payment.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Your Personal Information may be disclosed in a number of circumstances including the following:
- Third parties where you consent to the use or disclosure; and
- Where required or authorised by law.
Security of Personal Information
Your Personal Information is stored in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse and loss and from unauthorized access, modification or disclosure.
When your Personal Information is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was obtained, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your Personal Information. However, some of the website obtained Personal Information is or will be stored by us for up to 2 years.
Access to your Personal Information
You may access the Personal Information we hold about you and to update and/or correct it. Most Personal Information can be accessed via your account if you chose to register on the site. If you wish to access or see if there is any Personal Information related to you because you have not registered on the site, or you wish to request what information is stored (or ask for your Personal information to be deleted), please contact us in writing.
Note that the website is not used to manage club functions such as club memberships, email lists or financial accounts, so none of that information is stored in the website systems.
In order to protect your Personal Information we may require identification from you before releasing the requested information.
Maintaining the Quality of your Personal Information
It is important to us that your Personal Information is up to date. We will take reasonable steps to make sure that your Personal Information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you find that the information we have is not up to date or is inaccurate, please advise us as soon as practicable so we can update our records and ensure we can continue to provide quality services to you.
This Policy may change from time to time and is available on our website.
