Prime values the privacy of every individual’s personal information and is committed to protecting the information it holds about all individuals who provide personal information to Prime. This policy describes in general terms how Prime collects, uses, handles and discloses personal information under the Australian Privacy Principles and in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). This policy may be updated from time-to-time and all personal information held by Prime will be governed by the most recent version of the policy available on the Website(s).
The types of personal information that we collect and hold about you will depend on your interaction with Prime and may include:
We will generally not collect sensitive information about you, unless you have submitted that sensitive information to the Website(s).
We utilise 'cookies' which enable us to monitor traffic patterns on the Website(s) and to serve you more efficiently if you revisit it. A cookie does not identify you personally but it does identify your computer. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and this will provide you with an opportunity to either accept or reject it in each instance.
We will generally collect personal information directly from you, but may otherwise collect it from third parties (for example, if you apply for a job with us and we speak with a referee listed on your CV) or via CCTV footage recorded as a matter of course at certain of our premises (indicated by signage at entrances).
You may choose to deal with Prime anonymously or under a pseudonym where lawful and practicable. There may be circumstances where we are unable to deal with you
anonymously, for example we cannot provide you with a prize for a competition that you enter if you are the prize winner without having your correct details.
We may use your personal information for the following purposes:
You may remove yourself from promotional emails and materials by following the opt-out instructions within the message. Alternatively, you may send your request to unsubscribe@Prime7.com.au or email@example.com.
We may disclose your personal information to others in connection with performing our functions, such as third parties that provide services to us, including IT services, marketing service providers, market research agents, business partners, affiliates and related companies of Prime. These third parties may be located overseas, including in the United States and the United Kingdom. We may also disclose your personal information to comply with our legal obligations, including to law enforcement agencies or regulatory authorities or to insurers in the course of protecting our rights and property.
We hold your personal information in a combination of hard copy and electronic files. We have systems and procedures in place to safeguard information, including the use of technical measures such as password security on Prime’s network, virus protection software, and maintaining physical security in order to prevent unauthorised access to records, documents and materials at Prime workplaces.
If you would like to request access to, or correction of, your personal information we hold about you, please contact us on the details set out below.
We will provide you with access to the information we hold about you, including for the purpose of correcting or updating that information, unless there is an exception which applies under the Australian Privacy Principles.
We may recover from you our reasonable costs of supplying you with access to this information. However, we will not charge you for the making of the request or to correct or update your personal information.
Your request to provide access to this information will be dealt with as soon as reasonably practicable.
If we refuse to provide you with access to, or correct, the information, we will notify you of our reasons for refusal to the extent required and how you may complain about the refusal.
Prime’s business includes providing news services to the public. The Australian Privacy Principles do not apply to journalistic activities. However, Prime is required to comply with the privacy obligations contained in the Commercial Television Industry Code of Practice in relation to these activities.
Exemptions also apply for employee records.
