The National Council of Jewellery Valuers (NCJV) respects each person’s right to privacy and is committed to complying with the Privacy Act 1988 and the Australian Privacy Principles. This policy contains important information about the collection, use and disclosure of personal information and applies to all dealings with us whether it be through one of our staff directly or through the use of our website.
In this policy “we”, “us” and “our” refers to the NCJV.
Personal information means information or an opinion, true or false and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an identified or reasonably identifiable individual.
Sensitive information is a sub-category of personal information and includes details about race, ethnicity, political affiliations and membership of professional trades and associations. A reference to personal information includes sensitive information.
We handle personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) including the Australian Privacy Principles (Privacy Act) and this policy.
We collect personal information about our members, non/prospective-members, participants in our courses, third parties, service providers, suppliers, contractors, consultants, sponsors and individuals who interact with the NCJV for the purposes of providing and marketing our services to our members, prospective members and the public generally.
The types of personal information we may collect and hold include (but not limited to) contact information (e.g. name, email address and mobile phone number), photographs, employment history, educational qualifications and financial information (e.g. credit card details). We may also collect and hold sensitive information including information about your health, race, marital status, medical history and criminal history.
If you do not provide your personal information, we may be unable to provide you with specific information, services or products, make offers to you or tailor our content for your benefit. You may also find that you do not experience the full extent of our information, products and services.
We will not use your personal information for any purpose which you would not reasonably expect unless it is consistent with the Privacy Act. If we think a member may not expect a particular use of information we hold about them, we will ask for consent before we use it for that purpose.
We will never disclose personal information to third parties for a fee to allow them to market their products or services.
Our website may contain links to other sites (including social media sites). We are not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of those sites and we suggest that you review the privacy policies of those other sites.
Our advertising and marketing material, content, information and communications are sent to members and non-members from whom we have authority to provide information about our products and services which may be of personal and/or professional benefit. These products or services may extend beyond those provided by us and include offers from third parties.
We may send any of these marketing materials by post, telephone, email, SMS or other electronic methods. If you indicate a preference for a method of communication, we will try to use that method where it is practical for us to do so.
You may opt out of those marketing materials by contacting us using the details below or such other methods as specified in the marketing materials.
As authorised by the Privacy Act we may disclose personal information in connection with law enforcement activities by enforcement bodies (such as police investigations or other investigations into suspected fraud or unlawful activity).
We are unlikely to transfer your personal information overseas. In the event that we will, or are likely to, transfer your personal information outside Australia, we will inform you prior to the transfer and comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act that relate to trans-border data flows.
We regularly assess the risks of misuse, interference, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure of personal information and ensure that we have adequate measures, including policies, procedures and technology, to address those risks.
We hold most information about members and non-members for [7 years].
You have a right to ask for access to the personal information we hold about you. Unless there is a lawful reason not to, we will give you access to it and allow you to correct any incorrect information.
We may ask you to verify your identity to ensure we don’t give information to the wrong person. If we don’t give you access to your personal information or refuse to correct it, we advise you of our reasons. You may ask us to make a note of your requested correction to be located alongside information we have not agreed to correct.
Our contact details are at the end of this policy.
