Safekeeping and Need to Know Handling
As part of us keeping your personal information private we only allow access on a need to know basis.
As part of our commitment to adopting best practice policy and procedures, we recognise the need to employ the expertise and services of a third party hosting facility using the highest standard in security software and services. We have therefore contracted a third party Network Operation Provider that offers state of the art hosting and security facilities. This means that the information you provide is stored on a database server, which is secured within our Hosting Contractor’s facilities. This arrangement has been made to ensure that the information you provide is stored in a secure environment and the possibility of access from an unauthorised third party is minimised. Our Hosting Provider is not permitted access to your personal information.
Changes To The Policy
Despite investments in technology and privacy and security protocols, it is the nature of the medium that the information stored on our servers and any data broadcast over the Internet can, in extreme circumstances, be accessed by unauthorised third parties. We wish to assure you that we recognise this risk and have adopted security strategies to ensure that this risk is minimised. However, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of it. Thus, any information you provide to us is accepted and stored subject to these risks. We will notify you immediately when we become aware of any unauthorised access to your information should it occur.
If you have a particular concern or query about your personal information held by us you should write to Bluebag 405 Collins Street, Melbourne 3000 or email email@example.com.
