Messy Collective will provide access to personal information about an individual upon request by that individual (there are exceptions to granting access e.g. where access would be unlawful under the Privacy Act). If Messy Collective denies access to an individual’s personal information, it will provide reasons in writing.
The Procedure for Gaining Access is as Follows:
An individual will need to make a request for access in writing, addressed to the Privacy Officer (see contact details below).
- An individual must provide sufficient details of the information requested
- Messy Collective will need to verify the identity of that individual
- Messy Collective may need to charge an administrative fee to cover the cost of access (however, there is no fee for lodging a request for access). Messy Collective will notify the individual of the proposed fee before proceeding
- Messy Collective will respond to a request as soon as reasonably practicable but by no later than 30 days of receipt of the request
- Messy Collective will deliver the requested information by email
- Messy Collective will take all reasonable measures to aim to ensure that the personal information it holds is accurate, complete and up to date. Please contact the Privacy Officer if you believe that the information we have about you is not accurate, complete or up to date.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We will use all reasonable endeavours to keep your personal information in a secure environment, however, this security cannot be guaranteed. Our procedures are designed to prevent your personal information being accessed by unauthorised personnel, lost or misused. If you reasonably believe that there has been unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, please contact us using the contact details below.
Notwithstanding the reasonable steps taken to keep information secure, breaches may occur. In the event of a security incident we have in place procedures to promptly investigate the incident and determine if there has been a data breach involving personal information, and if so, to assess if it is a breach that would require notification. If it is, we will notify affected parties in accordance with Privacy Act requirements.
