- HOW AND WHY WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION
itravelbooks.com.au needs to collect personal information in order to conduct its business.
Our policy is only to use personal information collected from our business contacts or the users of our websites for the business purpose for which it was collected, and not for any other purpose.
We do not collect personal information that we do not need.
- WILL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION BE GIVEN TO ANYONE ELSE?
We will not sell, rent or trade personal information about you to or with others.
Personal information collected by us may be disclosed to third parties to whom we outsource specialised functions (such as mailing houses or printing companies), and if so, we take steps to ensure that those contractors:
a)comply with the NPPs when they handle personal information about you (regardless of whether they are a small business, and would otherwise be exempt from the NPPs); and
b)are authorised only to use personal information in order to provide the services or to perform the functions required by us.
The only other time we would make disclosures of personal information is if we are required to do so by law, or if the disclosure is permitted under the Privacy Act.
- HOW IS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION STORED?
itravelbooks.com.au takes steps to ensure that the personal information it holds is secure from unauthorised access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. We only permit your details to be accessed by authorised personnel.
- YOUR RIGHT OF ACCESS AND CORRECTION
Under the Privacy Act, you have the right to seek access to information which we hold about you (although there are some exceptions to this). You also have the right to ask us to correct information about you which is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.
Please note that the personal information we hold about you will be information that you have provided us.
We will assume (unless you tell us otherwise) that your request relates to our current records about you. To provide you with access to "current" personal information, we would ordinarily provide you with a print-out of the relevant personal information from our databases, or with photocopies of records which are held only on paper files. We may charge you for the cost of providing this type of access, but this will depend on the scope of your request.
For legal and administrative reasons, we may also store records containing personal information in our archives. You only have a legal right to seek access to personal information about you collected by us prior to 21 December 2001 if we use or disclose that personal information after that date. If you do wish to seek access to personal information collected by us prior to 21 December 2001, please contact our Customer Service Manager to discuss whether access may be available. Please note that if we do provide access to old records, we may charge you for the cost of providing such access.
