OUR PRIVACY OBLIGATIONS
We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality and security of your personal information and managing it in an open and transparent way.
BEING ANONYMOUS OR USING A PSEUDONYM
You will need to provide us with accurate personal details when you interact with Akses, otherwise we may be unable to provide you with our services in the way that we are supposed to and in some circumstances – at all.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION WE SOLICIT (THAT IS NOT SENSITIVE INFORMATION)
We will only collect your personal information where:
+ It is reasonably necessary in order for us to carry out one or more of our functions or activities (such as to complete a transaction); or
+ We are required to by law.
When you browse our website, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
COLLECTION BY LAWFUL AND FAIR MEANS
USE AND DISCLOSURE
We will only hold your personal information for the particular purpose for which we collected it (“Primary Purpose”). We will not use or disclose your personal information (not being sensitive information) for another purpose (“Secondary Purpose”) unless:
+ we first obtain your consent;
+ you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose it for a Secondary Purpose that is related to the Primary Purpose or – in the case of sensitive information – directly related to the Primary Purpose;
+ we are required to by law;
+ a permitted general purpose exists;
+ a permitted health situation exists; or
+ we reasonably believe it is reasonably necessary for one or more enforcement related activities conducted by, or on behalf of, an enforcement body.
For the purposes of this policy, “direct marketing” is the promotion of products and services directly to you including through emails, SMS, and phone calls.
Adoption of Direct Marketing Laws
We may use your personal information for the purposes of direct marketing if:
+ We have collected your personal information directly from you; and
+ You reasonably expect us to use your personal information for the purpose of direct marketing.
We will always provide a simple means for you to “opt-out” from receiving direct marketing, which typically involves an “opt-out” link on emails, “tick-a-box” on the collection form or through a pop-up on your screen. We will not use or disclose your personal information for the purposes of direct marketing material if you have previously told us not to. If at any time in the future you do not want us to send you direct marketing material, then you can simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will affect the change in a reasonable time period.
