Australian Payroll Association
Commitment to Protect your Privacy
Australian Payroll Association respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it.
In all cases we will treat your personal information with no less protection than that provided for by the Australian Privacy Principles set out under the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012 (Cth) and any other privacy laws that are in force in Australia.
How and what Personal Information we collect about you?
We collect personal information from you when you sign up as a registered user or request to receive further information from an advertiser. Australian Payroll Association collects data about you, your interests and subjects you select to receive communications about.
We may also collect information about you from our website but this information will only identify who you are if you provide us with your details (for example, if you provide us with your contact details). When you visit our website our web server collects the following types of information for statistical purposes:
- Your Internet service provider’s address;
- The number of users who visit the website;
- The date and time of each visit;
- The pages accessed; and
- The type of browser used.
No attempt is made to indentify individual users from this information.
Before we disclose your personal information to an overseas recipient such as our website hosting service:
(a) who is not in Australia or an external Territory; and
(b) who is not the entity or the individual; we take steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that the overseas recipient does not breach the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012 (Cth) in relation to your personal information.
Australian Payroll Association may also issue privacy and collection statements through our website or other points of contact and collection which we will provide at the time of collection with reference to the relevant circumstances of the collection.
Why we collect Personal Information and what is it used for?
Australian Payroll Association collects data about you, your interests and the subjects you may like to receive communications about. We also use the information:
- To enable us to provide you products and services;
- So advertisers you select can communicate with you. Marketing communication may be by email, post, over the phone, SMS/MMS and door-to-door canvassing, depending on which contact channel information you have chosen;
- For security and risk management purposes;
- To enable us to provide you with information about, and offer you, additional products and services;
- To provide to third parties to enable them to give you information about, and offer you products and services;
- To enable us to improve the quality of our products and services, to develop additional products and services, and for staff training and quality assurance purposes;
- Where a third party has an interest in acquiring part or all of the company, or providing any form of financial accommodation to the company;
- To improve the quality and quantity of information on our website; and
- Marketing analysis.
Where information is provided to any person or organisation other than Australian Payroll Association you accept that the person or organisation may not have privacy policies that are as protective as our Privacy Policies, and you consent to the disclosure of your personal information with that understanding.
You may opt-out of receipt of any such offers at any time simply by submitting a request via our feedback form or in any way that we notify you in the relevant communication.
