We, ABNO, respect your rights to privacy as well as committed to protecting your privacy. We adhere to the Australian Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
This policy was created to illustrate how we collect and treat your personal information that you provide to us.
How your personal information is being obtained by us
Your personal information is usually collected directly from you. For example, we may collect personal information about you when you deal with us over the telephone, send us correspondence (whether by letter, fax or email) subscribe electronically to our publications or when you have contact with us in person.
Generally, the type of personal information we collect about you includes your name, date of birth, postal address, telephone number and e-mail address. We may also collect sensitive information about you such as information about membership of a professional, trade association, credit card details or health information. We will only collect sensitive information in limited circumstances including where you have consented to it, which collection is required by law, when the collection is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal or equitable claim.
There may be occasions when we need to source personal information about you from a third party. For example, we may collect personal information from a company for whom you work, another organization with whom you have any dealings, a credit reporting agency, an information service provider or from a publicly maintained record.
We may collect additional information at other times, including when you provide feedback when you provide information about your personal or business affairs, change your content or email preference, respond to surveys and/or promotions, or communicate with our customer support.
What happens if you cannot tell us your personal details?
By not providing necessary personal details or information that is required by us in the forms or discussions in connection to the activities, we cannot provide you with our products or services you.
If we ask for your Tax File Number and you do not provide it, your ABN application may be delayed.

Though, we may need to disclose personal information to comply with a legal requirement, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, warrant, in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request. This may also include using your personal information to protect the copyright, trademarks, legal rights, property or safety of ABNO and its customers.

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continuing collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting us at emailing us from our contact form.
Access to your personal information
You may request details of personal information that we hold about you in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and the EU GDPR 2018 . If you would like a copy of the information which we hold about you or believe that any information we hold on you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, please email us at (abnregisteronline.com.au).
However, we reserve the right to refuse to provide you with information that we hold about you, in certain circumstances set out in the Privacy Act. This may include having a second person not part of the contact trying to obtain your information on your behalf without your acknowledgment and permission via call.
Access, Correction and Removal of your Personal Information
You may seek to access or correct your personal information at any time by contacting the Privacy Officer by email at (email@example.com).
You do not need to provide a reason for your request. We may charge a small fee for providing access if it requires a significant amount of time to locate or collect your information or to present it in an appropriate form.
In rare circumstances, and only where it is permitted under the Act, we may not be able to provide you with access to your information. For example, we may refuse access where the requested access will have an unreasonable impact upon the privacy of others or where we are required by law to withhold the information.
We will take sensible steps to ensure that the personal information we collect about you is accurate, up-to-date and complete, and ensure that the personal information we use or disclose is accurate, up-to-date, complete and relevant. If your personal information is out of date or incorrect, you may inform us of this and we can correct it for you.

OUR DUTY OF CONFIDENTIALITY AND OBLIGATIONS OF NON-DISCLOSURE
We have a duty to maintain the confidentiality of our customers’ affairs, including personal information. Our duty of confidentiality applies except where disclosure of a customer’s personal information is:
– with that customer’s consent;
– compelled by law; or
– for the sole purpose of avoiding the probable commission or concealment of a felony.
Complaints about privacy
If you have any complaints or issues about our privacy practices, please send in details of your complaints to our administration email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We take your complaints or issues seriously and will respond shortly after receiving written notice of your complaint.
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will take sensible steps to safe keep all hard copy and electronic records of your information in a secure manner to ensure that they are protected from misuse, interference and loss, and unauthorized access, modification or disclosure.
We will clear your personal information once it is no longer needed for a valid purpose or required to be kept by law.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure.
In the event that we engage a third party to process personal data on our behalf, we will only do so if that processor has provided us with sufficient guarantees that it will implement appropriate technical, contractual and organizational measures that ensure compliance with the Australian Privacy Principles.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then our website stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club and JCB.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
