Afford’s Commitment to your Privacy
Afford is strongly committed to the privacy of our valued clients, families, carers and supporters.
We are bound by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) in the Privacy Act (1988) and the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012, which came into force in March 2014 which regulates how organisations may collect, use, disclose and store personal information and how individuals may access and correct personal information held about them.
Afford collects personal information for the purposes of supporting delivery of service and for fundraising endeavours (The Cherrywood Raffle). Information collected may include name, address, email address, telephone number and payment or transaction details.
Any person may withdraw their consent to communication at any time by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1300 233 673. Afford will only use the personal information collected for the intended purpose or for related purposes where the individual would reasonably expect for it to be used.
Afford may also collect non-personally identifiable information which may include IP host addresses, pages viewed, browser type and other data which is used for statistics/data analysis.
Afford does not provide information about a person to any other organisation, government agency or any individual unless one of the following conditions applies
- The person has consented
- The person reasonably expects us to or we have told them we will
- It is required or authorised by law
- We believe the disclosure is necessary to prevent or lessen a serious and imminent threat to somebody’s life, health or safety; or
- In other circumstances permitted by the APPs (for example, if we reasonably believe the disclosure is reasonably necessary for law enforcement purposes)
Credit Card Security
Donations made to Afford using our online donation form or to our Raffles Hotline are secured. Your connection to our donations page is encrypted, ensuring that your personal information, including credit card number, name and address cannot be viewed by a third party.
Contact and Information Accuracy
You can request access to the personal information Afford holds about you. You may also request corrections to your personal information if you believe it is not accurate.
The security of your personal information is extremely important to us. Afford is committed to taking reasonable steps to ensure the security of your information. We have implemented reasonable physical, electronic and administrative procedures to safeguard and protect the information we collect.
However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and us, or information stored on the website or our servers, will be free from unauthorised access by third parties such as hackers and your use of our website demonstrates your assumption of this risk.
