The privacy of your personal information is afforded the highest level of
importance by YOURSITE. While we take careful measurements to protect the
confidentiality of information provided to us, we have adopted the Privacy
Policy detailed in this document. This document sets out our information
handling procedures and the rights and obligations that both you and we have in
relation to your personal information.
Collection of Information
We will only collect personal information where it is reasonably necessary to do
so for the conduct of our business. Any collection of personal information by us
will be fair and lawful and will not be intrusive. Upon request you will be told
the identity of the collecting entity, the purpose of the collection, details on
how you can gain access to your personal information and any consequences of
failing to give the information.
If it is reasonable and practical do so, we will collect personal information
about you only from you. In the course of operating the business, however, it
may be necessary to collect personal information from various external sources,
including government agencies and other third parties.
If we collect personal information about you from a third party we will, where
appropriate, request that the third party inform you that we are holding such
information, how we will use and disclose it, and that you may contact us to
gain access to and correct and update the information. We will not, however,
make any such request to any third party in circumstances where it would not be
practical to do so.
Use and Disclosure of Information
In general, we will not use or disclose personal information about you otherwise
than for the purpose of providing or offering goods and services to you, for any
other purpose that you may reasonably expect, for any other purpose authorised
by law, or for any other purposes disclosed to or authorised by you. This may
include disclosures to organisations that provide us with professional advice,
such as solicitors, accountants and business advisors.
We will, wherever possible, keep all personal information strictly confidential.
Any disclosure that is required to be made to any third party will be made
primarily for the purpose of providing or offering goods and services to you.
Any personal information submitted via our online form may need to be processed
by a third party. By submitting personal information via an online form, you
consent to the disclosure of that information to a third party, which may be
located overseas, for the sole purpose of processing the online form.
We may also use or disclose personal information about you to avoid, lessen or
prevent a serious emergency or crime. If we use or disclose personal information
about you in those circumstances we will make a written record of such use or
We will take reasonable steps to hold all hard copy and electronic records of
your information in a secure manner to ensure that they are protected from
unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We will delete your personal
information once it is no longer needed or required to be kept by law.
Data Access and Correction
You may request access to your personal information at any time by sending a
written request to us by email to email@example.com. You do not need to provide
a reason for your request. We may charge a small fee for providing access if it
requires a significant amount of time to locate or collect your information or
to present it in an appropriate form.
In rare circumstances, we may not be able to provide you with access to your
information. For example, where the requested access will have an unreasonable
impact upon the privacy of others or where we are required by law to withhold
the information, we may refuse access. If we are unable to provide you with
access, we will provide you with reasons for our refusal.
If your personal information is out of date or incorrect, you may inform us of
this and we will correct it for you.
Transfer of Information Overseas
By submitting personal information to us, you consent to the transfer of that
information to any jurisdiction in which we conduct our business activities, for
the purpose of enabling us to provide services to you.
We will otherwise only transfer your personal information overseas if the
transfer is to you or to one of your authorised representatives, with your
or your dealings with this Site, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
