QBA Privacy Policy

At Queensland Blind Association Inc. we believe a members right to keep their personal information private is highly important. We are committed to protecting and maintaining the privacy, accuracy and security of the personal information of its members, customers, donors and staff.

The type of information we ask you will depend on the type of benefit or service we provide to you and may include the following:

We only collect information that is needed by us to provide our benefits or services. We will usually collect your personal information directly from you, unless it is not reasonable nor practical to do so, or you have consented to us obtaining the information from someone else.

When personal information is collected by us we will ensure that:

  • it is collected by lawful and fair means
  • it is used for a lawful purpose
  • it is collected with your consent and
  • the purpose for collection is made clear and explicit

You need not give us any of the personal information about yourself, which may be requested in our communications with you, but it may affect our ability to provide you with our benefits and services.

Information security

Association employees are allowed access to donor/customer records only in pursuit of their duties.

We take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

Your information is stored securely whether in an electronic format via our computer system or physical form via filing and storage areas. For example, only staff needing access to the information are allowed access. Your personal information is stored in secured premises or in electronic databases requiring logins and passwords.

We will not retain any of your information for any longer than it is required by us, except to fulfil our legal obligations.

We will with your help, keep your personal information accurate, complete and up to date.

Web Site Privacy

This web site records statistical logging of requests without identifying personal information. No attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except, in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the Internet Service Provider’s log.

We will only record your email address if you send us a message. It will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and will not be added to a mailing list unless you request for this to be done. We will not use your email address for another purpose, unless you request correspondence to be sent to you using this format and will not disclose it without your consent.
