Privacy

The Office of the Member for Batman and our service providers value the privacy of every individual’s personal information and health information.

Protecting your privacy and your personal and health information is an important aspect of the way we create, organise and implement our activities on-line and off-line.

Collecting personal information

You can access the Member for Batman’s website homepage and browse our site without disclosing personal information. The Office of the Member for Batman will only record your email address and/or contact details if you send our site a message.   The personal information we collect includes:

  • The content of any electronic forms you submit via the website, requesting us to provide services, information or take actions.
  • Information submitted if you take part in an online survey.
  • Any messages or comments you submit to email addresses displayed on this website, which may include personal information such as name, email address and telephone number.   The information is collected for the purposes of responding to the matters raised in your correspondence.

Statistical data is collected to assist in making the site more usable. We do this using software techniques such as clickstream data, cookies and web beacons.

Using and disclosing information

We will only use and disclose personal and health information for:

  • the primary purpose for which it was collected;
  • purposes related to that primary purpose and which are within the reasonable expectations of users; and
  • other purposes to which you have consented;

As we work with State Government Departments and Agencies on policy issues, we may share personal information with those Departments and Agencies so that the issues raised can be considered.

If you provide the Office of the Member for Batman with personal and health information about other people, we rely on you to make them aware that such information is being provided to the Office of the Member for Batman, the types of third parties the Office of the Member for Batman may provide it to, the relevant purposes that the Office of the Member for Batman and such third parties will use it for, and how they can seek to access it.

We have implemented technology and security policies, rules and measures to protect the personal information that we have under our control. However, you should be aware that there are risks in transmitting information across the Internet. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us online and individuals do so at their own risk. If you are concerned about conveying sensitive material to us over the Internet, you might prefer to contact us by telephone or mail.

Once any personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure. We will remove personal information from our system where it is no longer required, except where archiving is required.
