What does this Privacy Policy cover?

This privacy policy covers the use of personally identifiable information from visitors to the edotas.org.au domain.

What personal information is collected by EDO Tasmania and when is it collected?

EDO Tasmania collects information from users in the following ways:

  • When subscribing to EDO Tasmania email bulletin services
  • When making a donation to EDO Tasmania
  • When registering for workshops, conferences and seminars
  • When applying for or renewing membership
  • When purchasing publications or paying workshop, conference or seminar fees

EDO Tasmania web site uses the IP (Internet Protocol) addresses of visitors to the site to administer the site, track users’ movements, and to gather broad demographic information. However, IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information and therefore the information and statistics EDO Tasmania produces does not enable individual users to be identified.

EDO Tasmania does not collect any personally identifiable information from visitors to the site except that which is supplied to us on a voluntary basis.

How does EDO Tasmania use users’ personal information?

EDO Tasmania will process the information that we collect from you and from your use of the site for the following purposes:

  • provision of our services
  • to send you email and/or postal communications that you have requested
  • to send you supporter updates, including case information and updates, fundraising and information about upcoming events
  • administration of donor, membership and subscription records
  • to notify you about changes to our website and services
  • to make financial transactions in accordance with your instructions
  • technical maintenance.

Does anyone other than EDO Tasmania collect information from our website?

Except as stated in this Policy or unless you are informed at the time of collection of information, only EDO Tasmania collects personal information from the EDO Tasmania website.

Does EDO Tasmania share user information?

EDO Tasmania will not sell, rent or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to any third party. In the event that we co-organise or co-host a specific event with a third party, and you register for that event online, the information that you enter when you register, and only that information, may be shared with that third party if we inform you prior to online registration that we will do so.

The only other circumstance in which a third party will have access to your personally identifiable information is where that third party is managing and/or maintaining the EDO Tasmania’s computer network, website, databases or sending communications from EDO Tasmania, on behalf of and as an agent for EDO Tasmania. In that circumstance at all times the EDO Tasmania will maintain effective control over the use of your personal information and ensure that it is used only in accordance with this policy.

Please note that the EDO Tasmania website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that the EDO Tasmania is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. EDO Tasmania encourages users to be aware when they leave the site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.

EDO Tasmania donations are collected through the GiveNow.com.au or Everyday Hero websites. For information on how your personal data will be managed by those providers, see the GiveNow (through Our Community) and Everyday Hero privacy policies.

What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your personally identifiable information?

EDO Tasmania will always ask for your consent to receive emails, event promotions or other correspondence relating to the services of EDO Tasmania. You can unsubscribe from our email communications at any time via the unsubscribe link in those emails. You can also email edotas@edotas.org.au or call (03) 6223 2770 at any time and ask us to remove your email or mailing address from all our mailing lists.

What is EDO Tasmania’s policy on allowing users to update, correct, or delete their personally identifiable information?

If you wish to update or amend the information held by EDO Tasmania (for example to change contact details or to alter preferences with regard to receiving mailings), or identify an error in the information held by EDO Tasmania, please contact edotas@edotas.org.au.

What other security precautions should users take?

No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect users’ personal information, EDO Tasmania cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to it or from its online products or services, and users do so at their own risk. Once EDO Tasmania receives your transmission, we make every effort to ensure its security on our systems.

Notification of Changes

If EDO Tasmania decides to change its privacy policy, we will post changes on our Privacy Policy page so that users are always aware of what information is collected, how it is used and the way in which information may be disclosed. If EDO Tasmania makes substantial changes to the way personal information is used, users will be notified by email.
