SA Unions

Privacy

The following is SA Unions Privacy Statement in regard to this website.


Application and Ownership
SA Unions is the legal owner of this web site. This privacy statement applies to the web site with a home page address of www.saunions.org.au. SA Unions is the sole owner of the information collected on this website.

Purpose of the Privacy Statement
The purpose of this statement is to let you know what information is collected about you when you visit the SA Unions website, how this information is used, to whom it is disclosed, and your ability to have any incorrect personal information amended. Our goal is to provide you with a satisfying experience while allowing you to control your privacy and to give you a means to voice any questions or concerns you may have. This statement has been prepared in accordance with the Australian Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000.

Commitment to Privacy
SA Unions is strongly committed to protecting your privacy while interacting with our site. We want to provide a safe and secure environment for both adults and children. Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address or information about what you like and do not like. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not. We will only use any personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it. We will not use it for any other purpose without your consent.

The Information Collected
The SA Unions web site may collect two types of information.

The first type is anonymous information. The web server may make a record of your visit and log the following information for statistical purposes which can include:
user's server address
  • user's top level domain name (eg com, .gov, .net, .au, etc)
  • date and time of the visit to the site
  • pages accessed and documents downloaded
  • previous site visited, and
  • type of browser used.

No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except, in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the internet service provider's logs.

The second type of information that the SA Unions website collects is personal information. Personal information is requested in order to provide personalised and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users. Personal information requested in this site includes:

Email Address
We will record your e-mail address if you send us a message, subscribe to an email newsletter, or complete a form this information is requested. If subscribing to an email newsletter you may "unsubscribe" at any time from the newsletter mailing list. Email addresses will not be added to any other mailing lists. We will not disclose your email address without your consent unless required to by law.

Name and Address
The site includes forms where name and address is requested. In these cases personal details are required to enable subsequent contact with you and/or to enable authentication of the information provided. We will not collect or solicit personal information via this site which would be unlawful, unnecessary or unrelated to the functions or activities of SA Unions, or unfair or unreasonably intrusive.

Because there are risks associated with using the Internet as a transmission medium, when we use electronic forms to collect information we will also provide you with other options for providing the information - for example, a paper form and mailing address and a telephone contact.

Use of Cookies
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. Cookies are not used on your site.

How information is Used
We will only use the personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it. We will not use it for any other purpose without your consent. There may be occasions where it will be necessary for SA Unions to disclose your personal information to third parties. SA Unions may be required by law to disclose the information, or may be required to disclose your personal information to third parties to provide the service you have requested. For example, if you purchase products online from the SA Unions website will need to disclose your personal information to third parties in order to authorise and process credit card transactions. Under no circumstances will SA Unions sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.

Commitment to Data Security
We will take reasonable steps to ensure that all information we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete, up-to-date and stored in a secure environment accessed only by authorised persons. Transmissions sent to or from SA Unions are monitored for quality control and systems administration. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from our web site. These activities are conducted at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security.

How Users can Access and Correct their Personal Information
If the SA Unions website holds your personal information SA Unions will where possible provide you with access to the information. We will take reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up to date. To request any corrections please contact the saunions@saunions.org.au or, contact us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below.

Children's Privacy
The safety of children is very important to us. Whilst SA Unions makes every reasonable effort to ensure that children's privacy and other rights are not compromised, it is ultimately the responsibility of parents to monitor their children's Internet usage.

What else you should know about privacy
Remember to close your browser and log-out of your internet connection when you have finished your session. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. You as an individual are responsible for the security of and access to your own computer.
