This policy is effective from 1 March 2015.
Beaton Live Pty Ltd (ABN 30 162 482 671), trading as beatonlive, respects and upholds your rights under the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (“Privacy Act”).
What personal information about you does beatonlive collect and hold?
If you are an attendee of our seminars or someone who has contact with us through or website or mailing lists, the type of information we may collect will include name, title, business, email addresses, contact numbers (telephone, fax, mobile). When providing personal information, you have the option of remaining anonymous or use a pseudonym to be identified by. However, in certain circumstances, such as where we receive your contact details from a third party, this will not be practicable.
How does beatonlive collect and hold your personal information?
We will generally collect your personal information directly from you in the course of your dealings with our business. However, we may also from time to time collect personal information about you from a third party. If so, we will inform you as soon as practicable of this collection and the circumstances of this collection.
Where we hold your information in a location other than our identified business address, we will take reasonable steps to ensure those locations comply with The Act. Where these locations are cross border, we will take reasonable steps to ensure the overseas recipient does not breach the APPs. Where practical, we will seek consent for the information to be disclosed to an overseas location.
What are the purposes for which beatonlive uses, handles and discloses your personal information?
We need to collect personal information so that we can provide our products and services, and conduct our business. We also collect personal information so that we can communicate new developments to our clients and to people who have contact with us through our website or mailing lists.
For example, if you are a client, or someone who has contacted us via our website, personal information about you may be used to notify you of developments we consider may be of interest to you and of upcoming seminars. If you do not wish to receive these kinds of communications, please let us know. Our contact details are set out at the end of this policy.
Our policy is to use personal information collected from business contacts only for the business purpose for which it was collected.
You have the right to request access to any personal information we hold about you. You can request this information by contacting the Privacy Officer at the details listed below. Where we hold information that you are entitled to access, we will respond to your request in a reasonable time and endeavour to provide you with a suitable range of choices as to how access is provided (e.g. emailing or mailing it to you). A fee may be charged to cover the cost of retrieval. However, this fee will not be excessive and will only apply to the facilitation of your request.
If at any time you believe that personal information we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate, then you may request amendment of it and we will either amend the information or make a record of your comment, as we think appropriate.
Questions and complaints
We will respond and advise whether we agree with your complaint or not. If we do not agree, we will provide reasons. If we do agree, we will advise what (if any) action we consider it appropriate to take in response. If you are still not satisfied after having contacted us and given us a reasonable time to respond, then we suggest that you contact the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner by:
