Livin and its related entities (referred to in this document as ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’) works towards its charitable purpose of promoting mental health awareness through speaking engagements and branded clothing and apparel.
Livin recognises that your privacy is very important and we are committed to protecting the personal information we collect from you when you use the Livin website, social media and any electronic methods of collection we may utilise from time to time (such as mobile applications).
We provide notice on our website (or, if applicable, a mobile application) in the event that we make any modifications that substantially change your rights under this policy.
The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (‘Privacy Act’), and the Australian Privacy Principles (‘APP’) govern the way in which we must manage your personal information and this policy sets out how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise manage personal information about you.
TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED
We may collect and hold personal information about you, that is, information that can identify you, and is relevant to providing you with the services you are seeking. This can include your name, date of birth, contact details (including address, email address, phone number), financial information (such as credit card or bank account numbers) and information about how you use our products and services.
This is not an exhaustive list. We may need to collect additional information about you from time to time to provide products or services to you.
You might also need to provide us with personal information about other individuals (e.g. your authorised representatives). If so, we rely on you to inform those individuals that you are providing their personal information to us and to advise them about this policy.
PURPOSE OF COLLECTION
The type of personal information that we collect and hold about you depends on your interaction with us. Generally, we will collect, use and hold your personal information for the purposes of:
- providing products or services to you or someone else you know;
- issuing tax invoices for the products or services we may provide to you from time to time;
- providing you with information about other services that we, our related entities and other organisations that we have affiliations with, offer that may be of interest to you;
- facilitating our internal business operations, including the fulfilment of any legal requirements; and
- analysing our services and customer needs with a view to developing new or improved services.
METHOD OF COLLECTION
Personal information will generally be collected directly from you either by:
- providing us with ‘your story’ relating to mental health which could be showcased on the Livin website or in the Livin newsletter;
- you paying fees owed by you to us or our clients using third party payment systems or other electronic payment platforms we may utilise from time to time; or
- through the use of any of our standard forms (such as when you enter into an agreement with us, contact us with a query or request or submit your details through our website or by email).
We may also collect information other than directly from you where it is unreasonable or impractical to not do so, for example:
- from third parties such as our related entities, business partners, or your representatives;
- from publicly available sources of information;
- from our records of how you use our services; and
- from the third parties we list in the section of this policy with the heading ‘Use and disclosure’.
We will usually notify you in advance when we indirectly collect information, or where that is not possible, as soon as reasonably practicable after the information has been collected.
If you choose not to provide certain information about you, we may not be able to provide you with the products or services you require, or the level of service on which we pride ourselves.
If the personal information you provide to us is incomplete or inaccurate, we may be unable to provide you, or someone else you know, with the products or services you, or they, are seeking.
Our website and credit card security transactions are the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) ensuring your privacy and security which encrypts your information as it is transmitted over the internet. The encryption scrambles details such as your credit card number, billing details and delivery address so that generally, other computers are unable to decipher the information ensuring privacy and security.
If you access our website, social media or mobile applications (if applicable), we may collect additional personal information about you in the form of your IP address and domain name.
Our website, social media and mobile applications (if any) may contain links to other websites or third-party hosted content. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such websites or third parties and they are not subject to our privacy policies and procedures.
In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third-parties cookies to report usage statistics of our website, deliver advertisements on and through our website, and so on.
Please note, however, that if you delete cookies or refuse to accept them, you might not be able to use all of the features we offer, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly.
