We collect personal information to provide and market our services. We may disclose that information to our contractors who assist us with these activities but will not disclose that information to overseas recipients without consent unless required or authorised by law.

Our Privacy Policy contains information about how you may access or correct information we hold about you, how you can complain about a breach of privacy and how we will deal with such complaints. A copy of our Privacy Policy is available on our website and can be provided on request. If you don’t consent to us using your personal information to market our services to you, please tick the following box.

The following has been developed for an electronic Privacy Collection Statement (including where information/stories are to be posted by users of the website):

We collect personal information to provide and market our services. We may disclose that information to our contractors who assist us with these activities but will not disclose that information to overseas recipients without consent unless required or authorised by law.

Our [Privacy Policy] contains information about how you may access or correct information we hold about you, how you can complain about a breach of privacy and how we will deal with such complaints. If you don’t consent to us using your personal information to market our services to you, please [click here].

Please note that the red text indicates where a hyperlink should be inserted and text shaded in yellow assumes that you do not generally disclose or make available personal information to overseas IT service providers or other overseas recipients. If that is not the case, you will need to amend this wording accordingly and specify in which countries the relevant overseas recipients are located.  The same applies to the attached draft Privacy Policy and Website Terms and Conditions. Other text shaded in yellow in the Website Terms and Conditions indicates provisions which require your further specific consideration and confirmation or amendment.

In terms of an electronic statement where information and stories are to be posted by website users, you can deal with the adoption of the Website Terms and Conditions by warning users at the relevant portal that by posting material, the users are agreeing to be bound by the Website Terms and Conditions and including a link to the Website Terms and Conditions at that location.   In relation to the Privacy Collection Statement, you should go one step further and ensure that users can’t post the relevant material unless they click on a link to the Collection Statement. It is not enough to simply have a link to the Collection Statement and give them an opportunity to say they have read it or agreed to it without them actually having clicked on the link. In fact, whether they have read or agreed to it is not the point. The point is whether you have provided it to them and in my view, you will only have provided it to them if they can see it on the page where they are required to complete their personal information, or in completing that information, they are forced to click on a link where they can see it.
