This privacy policy applies to all personal information collected by Sustainable Business Australia via the website located at www.b4ce.com.au (referred to in this privacy policy as the Website).

This privacy policy explains how Sustainable Business Australia handles your personal information.  This privacy policy only applies to personal information collected via the Website and does not apply to information collected offline or otherwise outside the Website.  The Website provides links to other external websites (for example, pages hosted by other organisations).  Sustainable Business Australia is not responsible for such external websites and such linked sites are not under our control.  Before disclosing your personal information on any other site, we advise you to examine the site’s privacy policy and terms of use.

Sustainable Business Australia recognises the importance of your privacy and that you have a right to control how your personal information is collected and used.  We take our privacy obligations seriously and we work vigorously to protect the online security of the personal information we collect from you.

Why do we collect personal information? Sustainable Business Australia collects personal information to enable us to communicate with you and involve you in campaigns to stop climate change and update you about our ongoing work.

If you sign up via the Website as a supporter or to attend an event, you may be given the option to participate in future online campaigns, receive a newsletter or further information, or to be invited to an event.  If you choose any of these options, your personal information will be used for that purpose.

We do not collect personally identifiable information unless you voluntarily choose to give it to us via this Website, email or by signing up as a supporter.

When you provide us with personal information, we will abide by current privacy legislation, as do our staff.

What kind of information do we collect? The main information that we collect is your name, email address and state. We collect your state in order to enable us to provide you with targeted communications that are relevant to your local area – such as events.  In some cases, where needed for a particular activity, we will also collect mobile phone and other contact details.  If you do not provide this type of personal information, we may not be able to send you communications or include you in the relevant activities as a supporter.

We sometimes use cookie technology on our Website to provide information and services to website visitors.  If you do no wish to receive any cookies, you may set your browser to refuse cookies, but this may mean you will not be able to take full advantage of the services on the Website.  Further information about our use of cookies is set out below.

In any communications from us you will always be given an opportunity to stop receiving communications, or to change your details by contacting webadmin@b4ce.com.au

What do we do with the information? Sustainable Business Australia will not provide your personal information to any other organisation except:

  • in the manner, or for a purpose, described in this privacy policy;
  • where necessary to keep you updated via the other coordinating organisations of the Businesses for a Clean Economy initative
  • where we believe it necessary to protect the rights, property or personal safety of any person; or
  • as required by law.

When you send an email through our website, such as to a newspaper or member of Parliament, the email will include your email address and full name. When you sign a petition, we will publish your name, city/suburb and state, but not your email or physical address. These details may then be published on the Website or external websites such as the newpaper or government website.

Other than in the limited circumstances we have described above, we won’t provide your personal details or provide mailing lists to outside organisations.

What happens when the campaign ends? When our campaign has finished, all of the personal data collected through it will be used to keep you updated on our ongoing work.

You can ask to stop receiving communications from us, or change your details at any time by contacting webadmin@b4ce.com.au
