Privacy Policy

 

Privacy statement
People Who Care Inc. is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. We take this commitment very seriously. We will not give, sell or otherwise share any of your personal information with any third party without your approval. Please read the following policy statement to understand how your personal information, and other information on this site, is treated.

 

Personal Information
If we request personal/business-related information (i.e. name and address) on an Enquiry Form this information is used in order to dispatch the appropriate response. It may also be used in internal research (only by People Who Care Inc.) to produce advertising, marketing and promotional communications. If we have trouble meeting your request, this contact information may be used to get back in touch with you.

 

We may use postal addresses and/or postcodes to analyse trends and to create broad-based demographic information for aggregate use. All such information is only used internally by People Who Care Inc. and is handled in the strictest confidence.

 

Should you contact us by email or from a website, we may automatically track information such as the URL your communication came from and the type of browser you were using. Information of this sort is typically collected by many websites for use in anonymous Internet research.

 

Surveys and Promotions
From time-to-time this site may request information from users with relation to research surveys or promotions. Participation in such activities is entirely voluntary. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address, telephone number, fax number and email address). Contact information will only be used to notify the winners and award prizes.

 

Links
The People Who Care Inc. website may contain links to other websites by way of hyperlinks and, at certain times, may contain advertisement banners. People Who Care Inc. is not responsible for the content or the privacy practices of such external websites and the providers of advertisements. For these specific practices, you should refer to the relevant organisation’s privacy policy which will be found on their website. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website (http://peoplewhocare.org.au)

 

Legal
People Who Care Inc. will disclose personal information when required to by law enforcement or other appropriate governmental authorities, or if the personal information is pertinent in a legal proceeding or court action. Otherwise we do not share contact details with any other third party unless authorised to do so by the individual concerned.

 

Security
All transactions are protected by SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology. SSL encryption ensures that any information you give to us is ‘scrambled’ and is therefore transmitted over the Internet in a protected form. To provide maximum security we also use very high bit level SSL encryption. Wherever we require you to submit personal and or payment details your information will be protected by the security technology employed by the website. The SSL technology we use is currently the industry standard. Security technology changes very quickly so we evaluate our security systems and processes regularly to make sure that when you use the secure areas of our website we provide you with the highest level of protection. Because the security technology we use is state of the art, some older browsers may not be able to support SSL encryption. Users with these old browsers will only be able to access the non-secure areas of the site.

 

We are informed by our web hosting facility that our website has security measures in place to protect against loss, misuse or alteration of the information provided to the website. People Who Care Inc. keeps all personal information i.e. your name and contact information on file but it is only accessible to designated People Who Care Inc. employees.

 

Notification of changes
If People Who Care Inc. decides to change its privacy policy or if at any time we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will post those changes on our website’s homepage for a period of two weeks prior to the changes taking effect so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.  Users will be able to choose not to have their information used in the new manner. Otherwise we will use such information in accordance with the privacy policy in use at the time the information was collected.

 

Correcting your information
If you need to change or correct any information you have provided to People Who Care Inc. (such as a change of address, telephone number or email address), please email: pwcinc.@iinet.net.au
