The Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000, effective 21 December 2001, sets out guidelines which regulate how private sector organisations should treat personal and/or sensitive information they collect, use, handle or store. The RSPCA supports the importance the community places on the maintenance of confidentiality of individuals’ personal and/or sensitive information. This extends to the collection and management of information held in its records regarding individuals.
Through this Website (www.rspcacupcakeday.com.au) we may collect the following information:
- Your name and contact information including email address
- Demographic information such as gender and date of birth
- Other information relevant to Cupcake Day such as satisfaction surveys and participation feedback.
What the RSPCA does with the information
The RSPCA requires this information to understand your needs and provide you with better service, particularly for the following reasons:
- Internal record keeping, including for registration purposes
- We may use the information to improve our services
- We may periodically send promotional emails about RSPCA Cupcake Day, competitions or other information which we think you may find interesting, using the email address which you have provided
- From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for Cupcake Day research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail
- We may use the information to customise the website according to your interests and to tailor the content and/or services we provide to your current and future needs
The RSPCA NSW may share this information with a respective individual’s RSPCA state or territory member society for the reasons outlined above.
