Why we collect personal information
Diabetes Tasmania collects and uses your personal information to give you superior customer service. In addition, we use your personal information, if you request it, to keep you up to date on the latest announcements, special offers, and other information we think you’d like to hear about. This may occasionally include information from other companies about products and services that can add value to your membership of Diabetes Tasmania. From time to time, we may also use your personal information to contact you to participate in a market research survey, so that we can gauge customer satisfaction and improve our services.
How we collect personal information
We collect information about you in several ways. For example, when you fill in your membership form, or when you correspond with us or participate in an online survey. In addition if you ask to be included in an email mailing list, we collect and store the information you provide in a secure database.
How we protect your personal information
Diabetes Tasmania safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
Our company-wide commitment to privacy
To make sure your personal information remains confidential, we communicate these privacy guidelines to every Diabetes Tasmania employee. Diabetes Tasmania does not knowingly solicit personal information from children or send them requests for personal information.
Diabetes Tasmania’s website contains links to other sites. Diabetes Tasmania does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.
If we are going to use your personal information differently from that stated at the time of collection, we will attempt to contact you via email using the most recent information we have. If we cannot contact you to obtain your permission we will not use your information.
If you have not given us permission to communicate with you, you will not be contacted, nor will we use your personal information in a new manner.
