What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Sutherland Shire Environment Centre collects information to provide services to members and non-members and where it is reasonably necessary to our functions and activities. We will not use this personal information for any purpose unless it is consistent with the Privacy Act.

This may include but is not limited to a unique username and password, and may require you to provide information to recover a lost password if you have forgotten or mislaid this.

Sharing of your personal information

We may occasionally hire other companies to provide services on our behalf.  This could include IT support, and processing transactions. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. Sutherland Shire Environment Centre takes reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.

From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will use for these new purposes only, data collected from the time of the policy change forward will adhere to our updated practices.

Embedded content from other websites
