We respect your privacy
Your privacy is a top priority for us.
Carbon Warrior (ABN 31 117 340 986) respects your right to privacy and is committed to safeguarding your privacy by adhering to the Australian Privacy Principles established by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). This policy sets out how we collect and treat your personal information.
The types of information we may collect
The types of personal information we collect about you will depend on the purpose for which the personal information is collected. This can include:
- if you have applied for the Carbon Warrior partner program – your name, business, mailing address, type of business activity, email address, and telephone number
- if you have requested to receive updates from Carbon Warrior – your name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number(s);
- if you have contacted us through our contact form – your name, email address, and any other personal information that you may disclose in your form
We also collect technical information and general analytics arising from your use of the Carbon Warrior website.
How we collect personal information
We collect your personal information directly from you, including when you:
- access or use the Carbon Warrior website;
- sign up to receive updates from Carbon Warrior;
- make inquiries about Carbon Warrior or otherwise communicate with us by email, by telephone, in person, via our website or otherwise; and
- apply to be Carbon Warrior Program Partner.
Where it is reasonable and practicable to do so, we will only collect personal information about you from you directly and from third parties.
How we use your information
We only use your personal and sensitive information for the reason we collect it as set out above and for the purpose(s) for which it was collected, or as otherwise permitted by law. We will not disclose the above information that we collect to affiliates or third parties without your consent.
Disclosure of personal information
We will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. We only disclose personal information to selected third parties who carry out functions on our behalf, such as sending mail and e-mail, data entry, data analysis, developing and maintaining our website, providing marketing assistance, processing payments, and providing customer service. These third parties will only have access to personally identifiable information to the extent needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Sometimes we may be legally required to disclose your information, for example, to government departments.
We may also sometimes share non-personal, non-sensitive and de-identified information with research organisations.
Other than as described above, we will not share your information to any other third party for any other purpose without your consent, unless it is otherwise necessary, as contemplated by the Australian privacy law.
Securing your information
We will take reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from misuse, loss, or unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. However, as the Internet is inherently insecure, we cannot guarantee the security of transmission of personal information you disclose to us online. Accordingly, you transmit your personal information to us online at your own risk.
Please notify us immediately if you become aware of any breach of security.
Accessing and correcting your information
You can make a request to review, update or correct any personal information that we hold about you (subject to any exemptions under the Australian privacy law), by contacting us as set out below. We may require you to verify your identity before providing access.
