Ask a Naturopath deals with information privacy in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Commonwealth) and the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) set out in the Privacy Act. We also comply with the Spam Act 2003 (Commonwealth) which imposes restrictions on sending emails and other types of commercial electronic messages.
We do not use your Personal Information or disclose it to third parties unless:
Find a Practitioner profiles are public by default, and you consent to your Personal Information in your profile being made available to the public, including through publicly available search engines.
Storage and security of Personal Information
We take reasonable precautions to protect the Personal Information we hold from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification, or disclosure.
Where practicable we implement measures that require third parties to whom disclosure is made to comply with the Privacy Act.
We may collect Personal Information through software such as cookies. A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on the hard disk of a user’s computer so that the website can remember that user. Without cookies, websites and their servers have no memory; a cookie facilitates a user’s passage through a website.
Rights to access and correction of your Personal Information
You have the right to access your Personal Information unless we are permitted by law to withhold that information. You also have the right to request the correction of any of your Personal Information which is inaccurate. You can change, update, or clear your profile including your Find a Practitioner profile at any time, by logging into your account.
In some circumstances it may be appropriate and lawful for us to deny access, including if providing access would be unlawful or if denying access is required or authorised under Australian law or an order of a court or tribunal.
