The new National Privacy Principles which came into force in Australia in December 2001 impose a range of obligations on businesses regarding the ways in which personal information can be gathered, managed and distributed. Screen Hub Pty Ltd, as a small company, is excluded from these obligations. However, we firmly believe that privacy is an important issue, and therefore have undertaken, where ever possible, to adhere to the National Privacy Principles.
Personal Information We Maintain
If you simply visit our web site, we do not capture any personal information from you. Our web site statistics system does capture information such as the type of web browser you use, this is typical of statistic systems and all of the information captured is anonymous.
If you are a member of Screen Hub, we maintain the following information:
- Your Name
- Email Address
- Telephone Number
- Company/Organisation Name (if applicable)
- Financial transaction summary
We also sometimes will store copies of correspondence between you and us in your membership record, or elsewhere, to assist us with providing a high level of customer service.
This is the minimum amount of information necessary to properly conduct our membership systems.
Cookies are small pieces of information stored by web sites on your computer. Very many sites use them, for a range of purposes. If you have configured your web browser not to warn about cookies, you probably have quite a few already stored on your hard drive. You must have cookies enabled in your browser in order to use this web site - we use the cookie to track whether you are logged in, and to store your log in details, and these are used to enhance your experience of the site, including making possible the 'Remember Me' function.
Accessing Your Personal Information
The National Privacy Principles give you the right to access the information we maintain about you, and to change it if necessary. You are able to access the key information simply by logging into the web site, and can change most items yourself.
If you wish to see the entirety of the information in your membership record, please contact us and we will arrange a copy. If you wish to update or correct any part of the information, please advise us and we will make the changes as quickly as possible.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We do not sell, distribute or otherwise give any other organisation access to the personal information you provide as part of the membership registration. We may use the information you have supplied in order to make contact with you in the future, but only in reference to the business activities of Screen Hub Pty Ltd.
Deletion of Old Information
If you advise us that you no longer require your Screen Hub membership, our standard procedure is to delete your record from the membership database, thus destroying the personal information we maintain about you.
Credit Card Information
We do NOT store your credit card details. They are discarded as soon as the transaction for which you provide the credit card information is complete.
On occasion Screen Hub conducts marketing campaigns involving direct mail letters and other marketing tools, using mailing list databases maintained by the Company. In accordance with the National Privacy Principles, if we send you a letter or otherwise contact you, and you decide you do not wish to receive further communication from us, we will remove you from the marketing database.
Conditions of Use
It is a requirement of membership of Screen Hub that you agree to the following Conditions of Use.
The full Screen Hub service is only available to paid members. Screen Hub Pty Ltd reserves the right to change, amend or remove any of the services available at any time. We also reserve the right to discontinue, cancel or amend any membership without notice if we deem it necessary. This policy will most likely be applied in circumstances where we believe the member has committed an action out of keeping with the nature of the Screen Hub community.
Any member found misusing the service, including using it to promote activities that relate to gambling, pornography, civil disturbance or any other activity deemed unfit by Screen Hub Pty Ltd will be instantly barred, and may have their membership cancelled without notice. We WILL NOT tolerate any such activities on the Screen Hub service.
Please choose carefully. We do not normally give refunds just because you change your mind. However, we have adopted the approach set out in the Australian Direct Marketing Code of Practice and offer a seven day cooling off period. You may cancel your subscription to Screen Hub at any time for seven days after joining, and request a full refund, which will be provided within 14 days of the request.
If you paid your membership via credit card, your card will be credited. If you paid with a cheque/money order, your refund will be sent to you by company cheque. We may require you to provide proof of purchase, for example, a copy of your tax invoice/receipt, or specific details that enable us to be sure the transaction is genuine.
An individual membership permits access by a single computer using the log in details for that membership. You may, of course, use any number of machines from time to time to access our service. You may NOT subsequently disseminate any material from this web site to other people. You may NOT permit more than one person to utilise the same log in details. This will result in the relevant membership being suspended.
