How and why we collect personal information
Regional Mediaworks needs to collect personal information in order to conduct its business.
Advertisers: If you or your company purchases advertising time from Regional Mediaworks, we will collect your business contact details. We need this personal information in order to provide you or your company with our services, and to provide you with information about our services and future promotions. Unless you tell us otherwise, we will use personal information about you to market our services to you or your company.
Business contacts: Sometimes, Regional Mediaworks needs to collect personal information from people we do business with. This will usually happen when we collect the name and business contact details of a person who is the contact in an advertising agency or one of our advertisers, or a government agency or company we deal with, or in one of our contractors or suppliers. Our policy is only to use personal information collected from our business contacts for the main business purpose for which it was collected, and not for any other purpose.
Our policy is only to use personal information collected from our, business contacts or users of our website for the business purpose for which it was collected, and not for any other purpose. Sometimes we use personal information collected from our advertisers to provide information about the services we offer (unless advertisers ask us not to do this).
We do not collect personal information that we do not need.
Will your personal information be given to anyone else?
We will not sell, rent or trade personal information about you to or with others.
The only other time we would normally make disclosures of personal information is if we are required to do so by law, or if the disclosure is permitted under the Privacy Act.
How is your personal information stored?
Regional Mediaworks takes steps to ensure that the personal information it holds is secure from unauthorised access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. We only permit your details to be accessed by authorised personnel.
Your right of access and correction
Under the Privacy Act, you have the right to seek access to information which we hold about you (although there are some exceptions to this). You also have the right to ask us to correct information about you, which is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.
Please note that the personal information we hold about you will be information that you have provided to us.
We will assume (unless you tell us otherwise) that your request relates to our current records about you. To provide you with access to “current” personal information, we would ordinarily provide you with a print-out of the relevant personal information from our databases, or with photocopies of records which are held only on paper files. We may charge you for the cost of providing this type of access, but this will depend on the scope of your request.
Online collection of personal and non-personal information
As noted above, our websites may collect personal information (e.g. if users email us with a request or feedback).
In addition, our websites automatically collect other “non-personal” information when you visit. For example, for each visitor to our website, our server automatically recognises and stores the visitor's domain name, but not their email address.
