Privacy matters, and The Parenthood Project Ltd. is committed to ensuring that your participation protects that privacy.
What information we collect and why
The Parenthood collects personal information to allows us to send you opportunities to participate in campaigns and information that’s relevant to you. In order to improve these campaigns and our responsiveness to members, we collect the following information:
- Information you provide: The Parenthood collects your name and email address for the purpose of sending you opportunities to get up and participate in our campaigns. You can ask to stop receiving these emails or change your details at any time by using the link at the bottom of each email. Any additional information you choose to provide in the course of The Parenthood campaigns and surveys is stored securely.
- Communications with us: When you send an email to The Parenthood or give us information over the phone, we may retain this in order to respond to your inquiry.
- User trends: We also collect information about how The Parenthood’s members respond to our emails and how many take action through our site. We analyse these trends to improve our campaigns and communications.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorised access to or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorised access to systems where we store personal data.
We won’t sell, trade or exchange your information without your permission.
The Parenthood will not provide your personal information to any other organisation, with some exceptions:
- Where required for financial transactions (eg. to verify credit cards);
- When you petition a decision-maker through our website, your name, town and state may be forwarded to the decision-maker, but not your email or physical address;
When you send an email through this site, for example to a member of Parliament, that email will come from your address, not from The Parenthood, and hence will include the details you provide, often including your email address.
Access to personal information is restricted to The Parenthood employees who need to know that information in order to run and improve our campaigns. In some circumstances trusted volunteers who sign non-disclosure forms are given access to limited information for the purposes of contacting you or improving our campaigns. All individuals with access to data are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
