Girlosophy takes your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information very seriously. Girlosophy undertakes, as a policy, not to interfere with an individual's privacy rights in the way it collects, uses, or discloses the personal information of any persons who provide it with such information in the course of carrying out its business. This policy, which applies to all personal information collected, held and used by Girlosophy, demonstrates that commitment to privacy. Girlosophy complies with the National Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) as well as other applicable Australian laws protecting personal information ("Australian Privacy Law").
Girlosophy will, at all times, collect personal information in a fair and lawful manner. It will usually collect information directly from the individuals in question. However, Girlosophy may collect personal information from other organisations (such as 5th Finger) who, for example, offer SMS database marketing services.
Girlosophy will take all necessary steps to ensure that any personal information we collect, use or disclose is up to date and accurate.
Girlosophy only collects personal information that is necessary for its activities or functions as an online content creator and media outlet, as a vendor of products and services and in providing a range of other services to its customers and stakeholders. In this capacity, the different primary purposes for which Girlosophy collects and uses personal information are the following:
- for marketing Girlosophy's products and services, including via electronic direct marketing and/or Girlosophy pages on Social Media Platforms; however, in all such cases, you will be given the option of not receiving further communications of that nature; and
- to process customer purchases.
Girlosophy will not disclose personal information which you may provide us to third parties without your prior consent, except in the following circumstances:
- where we are required or authorised to do so by law, including (without limitation) to government agencies or in emergency situations and when assisting in law enforcement.
Girlosophy will never sell your personal information to third parties.
Girlosophy will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is secure from any misuse, unauthorised access, modifications or disclosure.
A cookie is a small message given to your web browser by our web server. The browser stores the message in a text file, and the message is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Unfortunately, no one can guarantee that data passing over the Internet cannot be intercepted or used by unauthorised third parties. Accordingly, although Girlosophy works hard to protect that information, it cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to it. Once Girlosophy receives information that you have transmitted to it, Girlosophy will undertake reasonable steps to preserve the security of that information in its own systems.
