Protecting your privacy
Last updated: 21 February 2021
As a small business, we are not required by law to adhere to the Australian Privacy Principles. We choose to follow the National Privacy Principles (NPPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act), but are not legally bound by them. The NPPs govern the way in which we collect, use, disclose, store, secure and dispose of your Personal Information.
A copy of the Australian Privacy Principles may be obtained from the website of The Office of the Federal Privacy Commissioner at https://www.oaic.gov.au/.
What is Personal Information and why do we collect it?
Personal Information is information or an opinion that identifies an individual. Examples of Personal Information we collect may include: names, email addresses, addresses, social media handles and phone numbers.
This Personal Information is obtained in many ways including by phone (including by text message), by email, via our websites faqbusinesstraining.com and faqbusinesstraining.com.au, from social media and chat applications, your IP Address, from other publicly available sources, from cookies and pixels on our website, social media and from third parties.
We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing our products and services to you, providing information to, and communicating with our clients and for direct marketing purposes. We may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by following the unsubscribe link or letting us know.
When we collect additional and specific Personal Information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.
You can review, correct, update or delete your Personal Information by logging into your account (if appropriate) and making the changes yourself or contacting us directly to do so.
Sensitive information is defined in the (Australian) Privacy Act to include information or your opinions including an individual's racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of political associations, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a union or other professional body, criminal record or health information. For our purposes, we typically do not require access to sensitive information to provide our services, though for cultural awareness you may choose to obtain some information when transacting in person.
Payment and credit card details are encrypted and stored with secure third-party providers. We do not gather or store credit card information.
Persons aged under 18
Our services may be provided to persons under 18 and therefore we do need to collect Personal Information from persons under 18. For all persons under 18, we require parental consent before providing services to them other than answering initial queries and providing generic information to them. If you are the parent or guardian of a child and you believe they may have provided us with Personal Information without your consent, then please contact us.
