The PEDro Partnership’s commitment to your privacy
Your information and your right to privacy
You can elect to provide as much or as little information as you choose, although the PEDro Partnership requires a minimum set of information to provide access to parts of the PEDro and DiTA web-sites and services. What you provide is your choice.
Under no circumstances will the PEDro Partnership sell, trade or rent any personal information that you supply to it to any third party (within Australia or outside Australia).
The PEDro Partnership adheres to the principles set out in data protection legislation when handling personal data. These principles require personal data to be:
- Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner
- Collected only for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes
- Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which it is processed
- Not kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the data is processed
- Processed in a manner that ensures its security using appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage
- Not transferred to another country without appropriate safeguards being in place
- Made available to data subjects and allow data subjects to exercise certain rights in relation to their personal data.
The PEDro Partnership is also responsible and accountable for ensuring that it can demonstrate compliance with the data protection principles listed above.
The PEDro Partnership may collect, use, and store different kinds of personal data about you. These data are used to provide you with access to PEDro and DiTA web-sites and services plus to monitor how these web-sites and services are delivered so that they can be enhanced and developed. The PEDro Partnership may collect, use and share aggregated data. Aggregated data derived from your personal data is not considered personal data under data protection law as it does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, the PEDro Partnership may aggregate data about your use of the PEDro or DiTA web-site to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific page or the percentage of users from a particular country.
Depending on the section of the PEDro or DiTA web-sites that you use, the PEDro Partnership may hold the following information about you:
- Postal address
- Email address
- Country of residence
- Preferred language
- Transaction details associated with subscribing to online training programs.
(i) Information you provide to us
In the course of emailing your PEDro or DiTA search results to yourself, submitting an enquiry via the PEDro or DiTA web-sites, or leaving a comment on the PEDro or DiTA web-sites you may provide personal data. We will indicate prior to collection whether the provision of personal information is compulsory. This information is used to allow communication between PEDro or DiTA and users.
(ii) Information we collect from other sources
(iii) Information we collect automatically
Access to personal information and privacy enquires
You have the right to complain regarding any aspect of your privacy rights. If you have a complaint about a breach of the Australian Privacy Principles, or a registered Australian Privacy Principles code (if any) that binds the PEDro Partnership, please contact the PEDro Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Change of purpose
From time to time, the PEDro Partnership may decide to collect different kinds of information. When this occurs, we will update this privacy page.
Your information is stored on a server located in a secure data housing facility. While, it is important to recognise that “perfect security” does not exist on the internet, the PEDro Partnership is committed to using industry standard mechanisms to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers (SSL).
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have a concern or issue in relation to how we collect, store, use or disclose your personal information. You can contact the PEDro Partnership by email to email@example.com or call or mail us at the following address:
