This information includes personal particulars, records of previous support, applications for support and the history of the Foundation's dealings with individuals and organisations. We collect and hold only the information necessary for the Foundation to pursue its important charitable work. No personal information from hospital patient records is collected or held by the Foundation. Information about patients and their families used in the Foundation's promotions is collected from the patients and families themselves and used only with their written permission.

2. We will tell you who we are and what we intend to do with the information about you

Whenever we collect information we will identify ourselves as Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation and explain the reason why we have contacted you. If you decide to support the work of the Foundation, we may ask you for information that will be used to contact you again about the work of the Foundation. You can ask us at any time not to contact you again.

3. We will usually collect personal information directly from you

The Foundation always prefers to collect personal information directly from you. From time to time, the Foundation does use information from third parties about people and organisations that we think may be interested in the work of the Foundation.

If you ask us to, we will usually be able to tell you where we obtained information from.

4. We will only use or disclose information about you in ways that you agree or are consistent with your expectations

Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation will not sell or trade in your personal information without your prior permission.

If, in any of our communications with you, you become aware of any inaccuracy, please contact us so that we can correct our records.

We take appropriate physical and personnel security measures to protect written material on our premises and we use appropriate security procedures to deny access to electronic records including internal data access control and protective measures to provide protection against intrusions from external sources.

Corrections will not be made if they are requested by someone who is not the actual person about which we hold the information.

9. If we can (and you want to) we will deal with you anonymously

We can accept your gifts and other forms of support anonymously however the requirements for the tax deductibility of gifts and the issue of tax deductible gift receipts, contained in the Income Tax Assessment Act require the Foundation to collect the name of the donor if the donor wishes a tax deductible receipt.

The Foundation does not sell or exchange personal information with any third party for gain or for advantage. We do use commercial mail preparation services to help the Foundation with large-scale mail promotions and personal information is passed to these service providers in electronic format. The Foundation ensures that your privacy is protected when we use third parties by ensuring that we only do business with reputable mail processing companies that have a strong privacy policy and on the condition that they do not use the Foundation's data for any other purpose.

11. We will limit the collection of highly sensitive information about you

The Foundation has little need to collect highly sensitive information about any person. However there are circumstances where such information is collected and held for a short period. Such circumstances may include details of certain criminal offences committed by applicants for children's services-related volunteers and certain referee reports held in respect of applications. The Foundation does not wish to hold such sensitive information for any longer than it absolutely must to carry out it legitimate function and will destroy such sensitive information as soon as is practicable after its legitimate use.
