Discurio respects the privacy of the individuals it deals with, and is committed to complying fully with its obligations under the National Privacy Principles ("NPPs"), which are contained in the Federal Privacy Act 1988 ("Privacy Act"). The NPPs govern how organisations like Discurio handle personal information.
"Personal information" is information or opinion about an individual that identifies the individual, or from which it is reasonably possible to determine the individual’s identity. This Policy outlines the types of personal information Discurio collects and explains how it collects, uses, discloses and holds that information. The Policy also explains how you can gain access to personal information that Discurio holds about you and provides contact details for Discurio. Finally, the Policy sets out the way Discurio handles personal information online (ie. on the Internet) and how Discurio uses and discloses personal information that it collects about individuals it deals with in the context of its business activities and relationships (our "business contacts").
1. How does Discurio Collect Personal Information?
Discurio collects personal information in a number of different ways. The most common ways in which Discurio collects personal information, and the purposes for which that information is collected, are as follows:
The remainder of this Policy focuses particularly on how Discurio handles personal information about individuals who are consumers of its goods and services or who visit Discurio’s website.
2. What Personal Information does Discurio Collect?
If you ask Discurio to provide you with goods or services, sign up to join one of its clubs, or submit a competition entry form, Discurio will ask you to provide your name and contact details such as telephone number, postal address and email address. Discurio may also ask you for some additional information such as your age and entertainment preferences (eg. what type of music you prefer).
3. How is Personal Information Used?
The primary purpose for which Discurio collects personal information is so that it can provide you with its goods or services (including the membership services for any clubs you join). Discurio also uses this personal information to manage its relationship with you, communicate with you effectively and identify which of its goods and services may interest you in the future.
However, Discurio does not collect information it does not need.
If at any time you do not wish to be notified about goods, services or promotions offered by Discurio, or if you don’t wish to receive any further communications from Discurio, please let Discurio know and it will respect your wishes.
4. Will Personal Information be Given to Anyone Else?
Generally, Discurio will not disclose personal information to individuals or organisations outside Discurio without your consent. However, in the circumstances described below, personal information may be disclosed outside Discurio.
(a) Disclosures required or permitted by law
Discurio may also disclose personal information without your consent if it is required to do so by law, or if the disclosure is permitted under the Privacy Act.
5. Access and Correction of Personal Information.
Under the Privacy Act, you generally have a right to seek access to the personal information that Discurio holds about you, although there are some circumstances in which it is permitted or required to withhold access to some or all of that personal information. You also have the right to ask Discurio to correct personal information about you that you think is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.
If you wish to exercise your right under the Privacy Act to seek access to the personal information Discurio holds about you, Discurio asks that you make a request in writing to its Privacy Officer (contact details are set out in section 9 below). Your request should state whether you are seeking access to all the personal information Discurio holds about you or to particular personal information (in which case you should specify that in your request). You should also provide some form of identification (eg. a photocopy of your driver’s licence or passport) so Discurio can verify that you are the person to whom the personal information relates. You should also include details of how Discurio can contact you in case it needs to discuss your request. If you need more information before making a formal request for access, please contact Discurio 's Privacy Officer, who can explain how Discurio will handle your access request and assist you in making that request.
6. Storage and Security of Personal Information.
Discurio takes steps to protect the personal information it holds from such risks as loss or unauthorised access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. Discurio only allows authorised personnel to access personal information, and it is a condition of employment with Discurio that its employees maintain the confidentiality of personal information.
7. Business contact information.
Discurio collects a range of personal information about individuals from its business dealings with them, and with the organisations they work for. Discurio 's policy is to only use and disclose this business contact information for purposes related to the business context in which the information was collected.
Individuals are entitled to access and request correction of personal information held about them in their business capacity.
8. Online Privacy Issues.
(a) Online collection of personal and non-personal information
As outlined in section 1 above, Discurio collects personal information through its website when you sign up to join one of its clubs or when you contact Discurio through its online inquiry forms.
