ANTaR Inc owns and operates the website www.antar.org.au.
This policy applies to the collection of all personal information by ANTaR whether on the ANTaR website or through written or printed matter such as petitions or order forms.
ANTaR collects personal information from a variety of sources, including from members of the public, prospective employees, prospective and current volunteers, contractors and partner organisations.
In general, the personal information ANTaR collects includes (but is not limited to) name, address, contact details, date of birth, gender, occupation, in some cases membership of professional associations, special requirements, expressed interests and, where relevant, financial information, including credit card information and banking details.
Personal information you provide: The personal information you enter on ANTaR’s website or give to ANTaR in other ways is stored by ANTaR. We obtain most personal information through ANTaR supporter and fundraising activities and ANTaR’s donation appeals. You may provide information when you make a donation to ANTaR, purchase merchandise from ANTaR, sign a statement of support for an ANTaR campaign, request or acquire a product or service from ANTaR, complete a survey or questionnaire, enter a competition, participate in forums or when you communicate with ANTaR by e-mail, telephone or in writing (for example if you contact ANTaR’s office or provide feedback).
Indirect collection: ANTaR endeavours to collect personal information about an individual only from that individual. In some circumstances ANTaR may obtain personal information from a third party. If you provide personal information about another person to ANTaR, ANTaR requires that you inform that person you have done so and provide them with a copy of this policy.
ANTaR may use information it collects from you for the primary purpose for which it is collected and for such other secondary purposes that are related to the primary purpose of collection. ANTaR generally uses personal information to:
- provide you with products or services you have requested;
- communicate with you by mail, e-mail or telephone;
- provide you with ongoing information about opportunities in which ANTaR believes you may be interested; and
- help ANTaR manage and enhance its activities.
In some cases where ANTaR asks you to provide information about yourself, if you do not provide ANTaR with that information, ANTaR may not be able to provide you with the requested product or service.
"Sensitive Information" means information relating to a person's racial or ethnic origin, membership of political bodies, religion, membership of a trade union or professional or trade association, sexual preferences, criminal record and health. ANTaR may use and disclose Sensitive Information only for the purpose for which it was provided or a directly related secondary purpose or as allowed by law unless you have agreed otherwise.
ANTaR protects the personal information ANTaR holds from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure by various means including firewalls, password access, secure servers and encryption of credit card transactions.
ANTaR endeavours to ensure that the personal information it holds is accurate, complete and up-to-date. You can update your information by contacting us.
Where personal information is no longer required by ANTaR, it will be destroyed or de-identified.
You have the right to seek access the personal information held about you and to advise ANTaR of any inaccuracy. There are some exceptions to this right set out in the Privacy Act.
If you make an access request, ANTaR will ask you to verify your identity and specify what information you require.
