Your personal information
Collection of personal and other information
Prime Creative Media collects both personal information and anonymous information. We collect personal information about you when you provide us with your personal information directly yourself or through an authorised third party. Generally, we try to collect personal information directly from you, however sometimes we may collect personal information from publicly available records, information brokers and third parties. The personal information we collect may include your name, contact details, information relating to your dealings with us, and interests and preferences in relation to our services and events. As a subscriber to our products, visitor to our websites and digital publications or recipient of our other electronic communications, or as an advertiser or other contact, you may submit personal details about yourself, including by email or online form. This personal information may be stored in our database. From time to time, Prime Creative Media may invite you to participate in surveys or offer additional products or services related to those that you may already access. Your participation in any surveys will be anonymous to us and your answers will not be linked to you in any way, except where you consent to provide relevant contact information for purposes specifically stated within the survey, such as the offer of a prize or free product/service trial. If you express interest in any offer presented to you by Prime Creative Media and its associated entities, relevant contact information will be used solely for the purpose of fulfilling the offer. Subsequent use of any personal information will be subject to the terms and conditions associated with the specific provision of that product/service. Your web browser automatically provides us with the type of browser you are using, when you visited our online or digital publications, your top level domain name (for example .com, .gov, .au, .uk etc), the address of the website that directed you here, your server’s IP address and which pages you viewed. We only use this information for statistical and internal purposes including improving the functionality of our website and digital editions. If we are not provided with the personal information that we request, we may not be able to fully provide our services to you.
The purposes for which we collect, hold, use and disclose personal information
We may use anonymous information collected from you for internal purposes including improving our products and services. Some anonymous demographic information, including but not restricted to, age, location, gender, occupation and total net worth and assets may be provided to advertisers for the sole purpose of their designing advertisements for the website. All information disclosed in these circumstances will be de-identified and stripped of personal information. Your personal information will not be disclosed.
Prime Creative Media's use of "cookies"
Storage and security of your details
Prime Creative Media will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information that it possesses about you. Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet. Prime Creative Media encourages you to play an important role in keeping your personal information secure, by maintaining the confidentiality of any passwords and account details used on websites. It is your sole responsibility to maintain such confidentiality and Prime Creative Media will not be liable for any damage, loss or expense suffered due to such disclosure.
Prime Creative Media will only engage in direct marketing practices in accordance with the law. You can opt out at any time by using the unsubscribe function on each of our emails. We will send marketing messages to individuals located in the European Union (EU) in two circumstances: where you have subscribed to receive direct marketing from us and have therefore provided your consent to us contacting you; or where you have previously engaged with us and we have obtained your contact details in the course of the sale or negotiations for our service and we think that you will be interested in receiving further information about other products and services which we think might be relevant to you.
Prime Creative Media’s websites may contain links to third-party websites. Prime Creative Media is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any such third parties.
Your Right to Access and Amend Information about you
Under the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988(Cth), you may be able to obtain a copy of the personal information that we hold about you. The APPs provide some exceptions to your rights in this regard. If you wish to seek access to or to request correction of any personal information we hold about you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We request that you provide us with as much detail as possible about the particular information sought in order to help us retrieve it. In certain circumstances, we may not be required by law to provide access to or to correct personal information. If that is the case, we will give you our reasons for that decision. We take reasonable steps to make sure that the personal information we collect, use and disclose is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
Acts in the course of journalism
To the extent that Prime Creative Media carries on activities in the course of journalism (including investigating, preparing and publishing news, articles, reviews and current events), then its acts may be exempt from the requirements of the Privacy Act. However Prime Creative Media will deal with personal information in accordance with the privacy standards as set out by the Australian Press Council.
