What is personal information and why do we collect it?
Personal information is information that identifies an individual. Examples of personal information we collect include: names, addresses, email addresses and phone.
This personal information is obtained in many ways including online forms, email, phone, face-to-face sessions, via our website dianasguidetowellbeing.com.au, other publicly available sources, cookies, website analytics and third parties. We don’t guarantee website links or policy of authorised third parties.
We collect your personal information for the primary purpose of providing our products or services that you have requested, responding to your enquiries, newsletters, marketing, analysing and improving business engagement and performance. We may also use your personal information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by unsubscribing or contacting us in writing.
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.
We have the utmost respect for your privacy. Information collected will not be sold, traded or shared with any other organisations or individuals. We will not disclose any of your personal information without your permission unless we are required by law.
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.
Sensitive information will be used by us only:
- For the primary purpose for which it was obtained
- For a secondary purpose that is directly related to the primary purpose
- With your consent or where required or authorised by law.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your personal information only from you. In some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties. In such a case we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.
Security of personal information
Your personal information is stored in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse and loss and from unauthorised 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.
