Introduction

Thank you for visiting FairBreak. Please read this Privacy Policy, providing the basis for your consent to the use of your personal information in order for you to use this Site and our Service.

Definitions

 Throughout this Privacy Policy, we may use certain words or phrases and it is important that you understand the meaning of each. The list is not all-inclusive and no definition should be considered binding to the point that it renders this Privacy Policy nonsensical:

“Service” refers to the services that we provide and our Site itself including the offer for sale of any products or services.

“Site” refers to our website https://fairbreak.net

“FairBreak” refers to our company, known as “FairBreak Global Pty Ltd”, an Australian company; our Site; our Service; or a combination of all or some of the preceding definitions, depending on the context in which the word is used.

“User” refers to anyone who uses our Service, including general visitors to our Site.

“You” refers to you, the person who is consenting to this Privacy Policy evidenced by the specific marking of your consent or your continued use of this Site.

Personal Information

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, FairBreak is the data controller and is responsible for your personal information collected in connection with this Privacy Policy. Personal information is information or an opinion, whether true or not, and whether recorded in material form or not, about an individual whose identity is reasonably apparent, or can be reasonably ascertained, from the information or opinion.  Examples can include, but are not limited to, your name, postal address, telephone number and email address. The personal information collected and held about you by FairBreak may vary depending on the circumstances of collection.  You agree that we rely on the accuracy of personal information provided to us directly and indirectly and that it is your responsibility to provide your personal information accurately to us.

Health and Sensitive Information

If it is regarded as necessary, or you have volunteered to supply it, FairBreak may also collect sensitive information (a type of personal information) such as:

  • Information about your health and medical history; or
  • Other sensitive information about you (for example, information about your ethnic origin or that of your parents).

Sensitive information is provided a higher level of privacy protection than other personal information. Where you provide sensitive information to us, you also provide consent to us collecting it in accordance with this Privacy Policy, unless you tell us otherwise.

FairBreak may use such information about you for necessary insurance purposes and/or to ensure that activities in which you wish to participate are run safely and in accordance with any special health needs. If you do not consent to the collection of your health and sensitive information (and we are not otherwise permitted under law to collect that information) please do not supply your health and sensitive information when prompted to do so.

In addition, we may use de-identified health information and other sensitive information to carry out research, to plan activities or to prepare submissions to government or a government body. De-identified information is information which has been aggregated or otherwise de-identified so that it cannot be used to identify you or any other individual.

Supplying Information

If you do not supply some or all of the information that we request from you, this may affect our ability to communicate with you or provide the requested Service.  By not providing requested information, you may jeopardise your ability to attend activities, participate in programs or apply for roles with us. If it is difficult for us to deal with you because you do not provide the requested information or consent, we may choose not to do so.

If you provide information to us about any person other than yourself, you must ensure that they understand how their information will be collected, used and disclosed as set out in this Privacy Policy and that you are authorised to disclose it to us, and to consent to its use on their behalf, before doing so.

Data Storage and Processing

We store information in different ways, including in paper and electronic form. When your information is supplied to us, the information may be combined or linked with other information held about you.

Security of personal information is important to us and we have taken steps to protect the information we hold from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification, or disclosure. Some of the measures we use include confidentiality requirements of our respective employees, contractors, service providers, security measures for system access and security measures for our website.

Your Data Rights

Your request to erase data does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes that is vital to you being an active customer (for example, basic account information like an email address).  If you wish that all your data is erased, or in our opinion you request that the processing of the data is severely restricted, we will or may no longer be able to offer any support or other Service to you.

If we do not allow you access to any part of the personal information, we will provide you with the reasons why.  We will not levy a fee for lodging a request to access your personal information, but we may charge you for reasonable costs in supplying you with access to this information, especially if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive.
