Life Support Australia is committed to protecting your privacy. The Australian Privacy Principles (‘APPs’) set out in the Privacy Act 1988 (APPs) set clear standards for the collection, access, storage, use and disclosure of personal information which we obtain as part of our business operations.
Collection of Personal Information
Life Support Australia may collect your personal information in order to provide you with the service and such information will be collected directly from you.
In order to sign up to a subscription to the Life’s Last Wishes service, Life Support Australia may collect the following personal information: name and email address. When you subscribe to the service, we do not require further personal information from you but acknowledge that you may provide such information in submitting responses to the questions asked throughout the service. Generally, you have no obligation to provide any information requested by us.
In some situations, you may also choose to deal with Life Support Australia anonymously, or to be known by a pseudonym.
Where Life Support Australia collects personal information from you either directly or by other means we will notify you at the time, or as soon as practicable afterwards, to ensure that you are aware of such collection and its purpose.
If Life Support Australia receives unsolicited personal information we will determine if such information could have been collected under the APPs and if it could not, Life Support Australia will destroy or de-identify the information in accordance with its obligations.
We will not collect any sensitive information from you, revealing your race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union memberships or details of health or disability however we acknowledge this information may be voluntarily provided by you in submitting your responses.
Use and disclosure of personal information
We may use personal information about you for the primary purpose of providing you with our services, and for which you would reasonably expect us to use that information, including sending you information by electronic mail to inform you of your subscription’s impending expiry date.
Protecting your personal information and ensuring that it is complete, up-to-date and relevant is of paramount importance to Life Support Australia. Life Support Australia has policies and procedures in place to ensure that our information systems and files are kept secure from unauthorised access and interference.
Life Support Australia also takes measures to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information when it is no longer required. The types of measures we take vary with the type of information, and how it is collected and stored.
Accuracy of your information
All reasonable steps are taken by us to ensure that your personal information held by us is accurate, up-to-date, complete, relevant and not misleading. If you believe that any of your personal information contravenes this, please contact us (see below) and we will take all reasonable steps to correct it within a reasonable time.
