CoreData Pty Ltd (trading as CoreData) respects and upholds your rights under the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act).
What personal information does CoreData collect and hold about you?
The information CoreData collects may include name, email, phone, date of birth, occupation, opinions, and feedback in relation to products, brands etc. When providing personal information you have the option of remaining anonymous or use a pseudonym to be identified by. However, in certain circumstances, such as where we receive your contact details from a third party or where the research data itself may potentially allow for identification, this may will not be practicable.
Depending on the nature of the research we conduct, we may also collect sensitive information from you, including political opinion, health and/or financial information etc. Sensitive information will only be collected with your prior consent and only if it is directly related to, or reasonably necessary for, the research we conduct.
How does CoreData collect and hold your personal information?
CoreData will generally collects your personal information directly from you in the course of you participating in our research and/or surveys. However, we may also from time to time collect personal information about you from third parties, such as clients, partners, and organisations that provide a list of potential candidates for the research. If so, we will inform you as soon as practicable of this collection and the circumstances of this collection.
We may also collect personal information from websites, promotional activities, competitions, directly related companies, and organisers of events.
What are the purposes for which CoreData uses, handles and discloses your personal information?
Who will CoreData disclose your personal information to?
We will not disclose any personally identifiable research information we collect from you unless we have your express prior consent and will only report the information you provide in an aggregate form that will not personally identify you. We will not disclose any personal information or personally identifiable research information to a third party for a purpose other than conducting our research unless we have your express prior consent or are required to do so by an Australian law or court/tribunal order.
In the course of operating our site, issuing our publications and providing our services we may rely on third party service providers to host or store the data we collect who are located overseas. The names and locations of those suppliers may change from time to time, including Cloudflare Inc (and associated global data centres).
You have the right to request access to any personal information we hold about you. You can request this information by contacting the Privacy Officer at the details listed below. Where we hold information that you are entitled to access, we will respond to your request in a reasonable time and endeavour to provide you with a suitable range of choices as to how access is provided (eg, emailing or mailing it to you). A fee may be charged to cover the cost of retrieval. However this fee will not be excessive and will only apply to the facilitation of your request.
If at any time you believe that personal information we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate, then you may request amendment of it and we will either amend the information or make a record of your comment, as we think appropriate.
