Collection of personal information
At times, we may combine the information we collect from you with information from other sources to help us improve its overall accuracy and completeness, to assist with contact tracing activities and to help us better tailor our interactions with you, including for research purposes. In addition, we may also collect information relating to your use of Melbourne Alive through the use of various technologies, including cookies. It is our intention that this policy will protect your personal information from being dealt with in any way that is inconsistent with the applicable privacy laws in Victoria and Australia, including the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) and the Australian Privacy Principles contained in Schedule 1 of that Act. We may also collect information during your use of Melbourne Alive which is not personal information, because it does not reveal your identity. For example, we may record your server address, the date and time of your visit, the pages you viewed, any documents you downloaded and the type of browser and operating system you used.
Use of Information
For example, we use such information for the following purposes:
- To provide information to government to assist with contact tracing activities;
- To provide information to business operators in certain locations you have attended to assist with record keeping and contact tracing activities;
- To understand and analyse our audience to improve the services that we provide through Melbourne Alive;
- For internal administrative purposes;
- To update our records and keep your profile information up to date;
- To process and respond to any queries you submit;
We will obtain your consent for use or disclosure of your personal information for an unrelated purpose, unless it is for a secondary purpose related to the primary purpose of collection or disclosure is otherwise permitted under the Privacy Act.
Apart from where you consent to disclosure to achieve the purpose for which the information was submitted, personal information may be disclosed in special situations where we have reason to believe that doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone damaging, injuring, or interfering (intentionally or unintentionally) with our rights or property, users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. Also, we may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires disclosure.
DB Results will, unless the law requires otherwise, take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently deidentify your personal information if it is no longer required for the purpose identified. However, please note that copies of correspondence sent from Melbourne Alive that may contain personal information are stored as archives for record-keeping and back-up purposes.
