How We Use Your Personal Information

Newseeds.com.au may only use your personal information or data for the purpose of direct marketing in relation to promotional activities where it is impracticable for us to obtain your prior express consent.

Security Of Your Information

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that all information we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete, up-to-date and stored in a secure environment accessed only by authorized persons.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information from misuse, loss and unauthorized access, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from our online products or services. These activities are conducted at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security.

If you wish to access or modify personal information which you have provided via Newseeds.com.au please send an email to info@newseeds.com.au detailing your request.

Exceptions to this include:

  • where providing access will pose a serious threat to life or health of any individual or pose an unreasonable impact on the privacy of an individual;
  • your request for access is frivolous or vexatious;
  • where the information relates to existing legal proceedings between Newseeds.com.au and you and the information would not be discoverable in the process of those legal proceedings; or where providing access would be unlawful, may prejudice an investigation of possible unlawful activity, may prejudice enforcement of laws, or denying access is specifically authorized by law.

If Newseeds.com.au does not allow you to access your personal information, we will provide you with the reasons for our decision. If you believe that the personal information we collect, use or disclose is inaccurate, incomplete or not up to date but Newseeds.com.au does not agree with you, we will post a statement of your claim where that information is kept and accessed.

What Else You Should Know About Privacy
