The personal information that we collect is managed through a number of databases managed by us and via third-party providers that we contract to manage personal information on our behalf.
Usage of our website is anonymous, however your usage is tracked and monitored through statistical analysis tools. Theses tools only provide us with non-specific information about your usage of our site and this information cannot be used to identify you. The information that is collected may include but is not limited to your approximate geographical location (limited to suburb/city), the type of device and internet browser you are using to visit our website, the pages your visit on our website and any key interactions you make with our website.
While usage of our website is anonymous, it is impractical to provide many of our other services with the same level of anonymity. Due to this that we do require some personal information such as a name and email address as a minimum to facilitate our other products and services.
We collect solicited personal information through the use of website forms, manual collection of contact information through direct dealing with clients, customers, subscribers and website visitors, through our clients and business partners providing personal information databases to us which we manage on their behalf, we may also use other methods of collection as deemed appropriate at the time of collecting the information.
Where we have come into possession of unsolicited personal information we will manage that information as required by law. If we reasonably believe the intention for that personal information was for it to be added to our personal information database then we shall handle the information as if it was collected via a solicited means. In all other cases we shall destroy, dispose of or de-identify the personal information within a reasonable timeframe where permissible by commonwealth law.
When we collect personal information from you we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that you are notified and aware of the collection of that information either before, during or after the collection of personal information has occurred. This notification may be via a message displayed on our website, an electronic communication method such as email or non-electronic communication method such as a letter.
The notification shall make reasonable efforts to include the reason and method for collection if that is not apparent at the time of the notification, whether the collection is required or authorised by Commonwealth law, the purpose in which the personal information will be used as well as what would happen if we did not have access to your personal information.
We use personal information collected for the purpose of providing and facilitating products and services to our clients, customers, subscribers and website visitors in accordance with the reason for why the information was originally collected. A non-exhaustive list of the ways personal information could be used for include; digital marketing delivery, print and digital magazine subscription delivery, entrance into competitions, TravelSaver Card delivery and provision of business services.
Personal information provided to us may be disclosed to a third-party provider which we have engaged to provide a service on our behalf. Information provided to our third-party providers will only be used for the provision of products and services that the provider is contracted for.

When collecting and storing government related identifiers we will never use them as an internal identifier within our organisation and the identifier shall only ever be used for the purpose that it was obtained. We will never disclose government related identifiers except in circumstances where required by law or required in the circumstances.
We take all reasonable steps to ensure the quality and accuracy of personal data that we hold on file. This is done through active monitoring of our email communication lists and flagging of personal information if an email ‘bounces back’ at the recipient email server.

All access to your data is over a TLS connection.
