Privacy Policy

The John and Myriam Wylie Foundation is bound by the Privacy and Data Protection Act (2014 (VIC) which sets out principles regarding the protection of your personal information. This Privacy Policy explains how we use and disclose personal information which we hold about you and the privacy rights you have in relation to that information.

We may collect some information that is not personal information because it does not identify you or anyone else.  For example, we may collect aggregated information about how users use our website or anonymous answers to surveys.

We may also collect the following types of personal information:

  • Name
  •  Email address 
  • Telephone contact number
  • Company name / occupation / job title
  • The products and services your organisation is involved with
  • ABN 

We collect your personal information directly from you in ways including:

  • When you request information from us
  • When you apply for a donation from us
  • When you access, use or log in to our website
  • During conversations between you and our representatives

You may request access to any personal information we hold about you at any time by contacting us (details below).  Where we hold information that you are entitled to access, we will try to provide you with suitable means of accessing it (eg. by emailing it to you).

  • If you believe that the personal information we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate, then you may request amendment of it.  If we do not agree that there are grounds for amendment, then we will add a note to the personal information stating that you disagree with it.
  • There may be instances where we cannot grant you access to the personal information we hold.  For example, we may need to refuse access if granting access would interfere with the privacy of others or if it would result in a breach of confidentiality.  If that happens, we will give you written reasons for any refusal.

We collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information for the following purposes:

  • To send communications requested by you
  • To answer enquiries
  • To assess the performance of the website and to improve the operation of the website
  • To process and respond to any complaint made by you
  • To comply with any law, rule, regulation, lawful and binding determination, decision or direction of a regulator, or in cooperation with any governmental authority

Any personal data we collect is done so with discretion and we take necessary steps to protect all personal information we hold.  No information is passed to third parties of any kind.

Content from other websites

Articles on the website may, and often will, include embedded content such as videos, images, articles, and others. Embedded content from other websites manifests in the same manner as it would when visiting the other website in question. These websites may also collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content – this includes tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We make no representations or warranties in relation to the privacy practices of any third party website and we are not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of any third party website.  Third party websites are responsible for informing you about their own privacy practices.
