Treading Lightly is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act). The APPs are designed to protect the confidentiality of information and the privacy of individuals by regulating the way personal information is collected, used, disclosed and managed. Personal information is, generally speaking, information or an opinion relating to an identified, or reasonably identifiable, individual.
Treading Lightly respects your privacy. This policy explains the way in which we collect, store, and use your personal information.
First of all, rest assured that Treading Lightly will not share your personal information without your permission, unless we are required by law to disclose it.
The main types of personal information we collect are those that you give to us, such as your contact details (including IP addresses), personal data such as date of birth, and financial information. We also collect personal information from individuals at our events, for example via sign-up sheets. We collect this information through our website, via email and social media for the primary purpose of providing information and services to people which they have requested. We may use your personal information to contact you about our activities, send you our newsletter, or to seek your support for our activities – unless you have chosen not to receive this type of communication. All our email communications have an option to ‘unsubscribe’ if you no longer wish to receive information from us.
In addition, Treading Lightly uses the Google AMP Client ID API to consolidate information on each unique visitor to their interactions with our site. This consolidated information provides a more accurate picture of visitor use of our services and website. The Google AMP Client ID API assigns a unique randomly generated identifier to each visitor and uses this identifier to link all activity associated with that particular visitor. The unique identifier, web analytics data and Cookies do not contain personally identifiable information such as your name or email address and therefore cannot be used to identify you.
We store personal information in our electronic and physical records, and take all steps possible to protect that information from improper access or disclosure.
