In handling your personal information, we will comply with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) and with the Australian Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act.
How to contact us about privacy
Collection and Purpose
We may collect personal information from you through the use of our website, the information you input into the website, during the provision of our services to you and directly from you.
We may need to collect your personal information from other sources, but will only do so if it is unreasonable or impracticable to collect your personal information directly from you.
The personal information that we may need to collect, will depend on the particular product and service that we may provide to you. The personal information we may collect could include (but is not limited to):
- your general contact and identification information, your registration in CPD programs;
- details about your work qualifications and skills, tax file numbers, ABN numbers for employment purposes;
- recordings of teaching and learning activities involving your image or voice captured during participation in our courses or events, other information such as notes and written statements made by staff or presenters; and
- other information relevant in the circumstances.
The purpose for which we collect personal information is to provide you with the best service experience possible on our website and to ensure we can provide you with relevant information, products and services. Some provision of personal information is optional. However, if you do not provide us with certain types of personal information, you may be unable to enjoy the full functionality of the website and we may not be able to provide our services to you.
We need your personal information to help us provide our services to you. We only disclose your personal information to assist us in providing our services to you.
Any disclosure of your personal information to an unrelated third party (if required) is on a strictly confidential basis and will only be for the purposes for which it was collected.
Access and correction
National Privacy Principle 6 of the Australian Privacy Act 1998 (Cth) allows you to get access to, and correct, the personal information we hold about you in certain circumstances. If you would like to obtain such access, please contact us on the details set out above.
We have processes in place to ensure the security of your personal information, including encryption of all data when it is transferred to our service providers and limitations on access to personal information within our organisation.
We will destroy personal information in circumstances where it is no longer required, unless we are otherwise required or authorised by law to retain the information.
Transfer out of Australia
We may store your personal information with a cloud service provider, which may not be located in Australia. Furthermore, our website may not be hosted in Australia. For that reason, we may transfer all data on the website (including all personal information) to our service provider outside of Australia. You hereby consent to this transfer.
We may also collect cookies from your computer, which enables us to tell when you use the website and also to help customise your website experience. Third parties may be engaged by us to use this information obtained by cookies to direct advertising to our website users. Those third parties may have privacy policies that we do not control.
You can set your browser to block or manage cookies, however that may result in reduced effectiveness or experience of our website.
