This information is used to administer and improve the performance of our site. Some of web pages also use “cookies”. Most browsers allow you to control these “cookies”. You may choose to access the site without use of “cookies” but it may reduce the user experience and require you re-enter certain information.
Where we collect personal information about you from a third party source, we will take reasonable steps to contact you and ensure that you are aware of the purposes for which we are collecting your personal information and the organisations to which we might disclose your personal information.

4. When we disclose your personal information
We may transfer personal information to organisations outside Yuruware including related companies of Yuruware, Yuruware members and partners, third parties who assist us in achieving the purpose (as set out in the purpose statement) or to whom we have outsourced various business functions.
In some cases, these third parties may reside outside Australia. In each case we will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third parties protect your personal information in a similar way to Yuruware.

We do not disclose personal information we collect to third parties for the purposes of allowing them to direct market their products and services.
If you do not provide information which we request, then we may not be able to or may not be willing to fulfil the applicable purpose of collection. For example, we may not provide you with appropriate information or services or may not consider an application or proposal by you.
5. Gaining access to information we hold about you
Subject to any exceptions allowed by law, Yuruware will, on request, provide you with access to the personal information we hold about you.
Your request to obtain access will be dealt with in a reasonable time.
If Yuruware refuses to provide you with access to the information, Yuruware will provide you with reasons for the refusal.
6. Keeping your personal information up-to-date
We take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is accurate, complete, and up-to-date whenever we collect or use it.
If you find that the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date, please contact us immediately and we will take reasonable steps to correct this information, or if necessary, we will discuss alternative action with you.
7. Security of your personal information
We will take reasonable steps to protect any personal information that we hold from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Your personal information may be stored either in hardcopy documents, as electronic data, or in Yuruware’s software or systems.
Yuruware will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information that is no longer needed for the purpose for which the information was collected.
8. Our privacy practices in relation to emails
Yuruware’s IT Department logs and stores email messages by capturing each email log file on the mail server. The details captured are date, sender, receiver, subject, size of email message, routing information and group that sender belongs to. This information is then stored on a server for a maximum of 10 years, after which time it is deleted. This information may be “de-identified” (so that it can no longer be used to identify any individual) and then used in its de-identified form for internal research purposes and aesthetic purposes approved through applicable Yuruware processes. Further, if an investigation is necessary, Yuruware, a law enforcement agency or other government agency may inspect the above information for the purposes of the investigation. We will not otherwise use or disclose the above information except in accordance with applicable laws, including the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
9. Unsolicited Commercial Email – SPAM
Yuruware does not send commercial electronic messages unless the relevant electronic account holder consents or Yuruware is otherwise permitted to send them under the Spam Act 2003 (Cth). Yuruware includes information about Yuruware and an unsubscribe facility in commercial electronic messages it sends.
Where you provide your email address to Yuruware using the Yuruware Website (for instance, by sending an electronic message or by completing a web form), Yuruware will only use your email address for the purposes for which you provided it or agreed it may be used. Your email address will not be subscribed to a mailing list without your consent. If you subscribe to a Yuruware mailing list, you will be sent a confirmation message before your email address is added to the mailing list.
Yuruware does not use any address harvesting software. Nor does it use any lists directly or indirectly derived from use of address harvesting software.
10. Employee Privacy
Employees of Yuruware may request access to their personal information, such as contact details, for the purpose of keeping that information up to date.
Employees records are generally exempt from the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and employees do NOT have the right to access, evaluate or amend their employee records such as performance reviews and confidential records.
Yuruware must deal with employee records in a way that is related to their employment relationship and may disclose personal information on all its current and former employees to third parties who assist us in achieving our legitimate business objectives in relation to employees or to whom Yuruware has outsourced business functions, including a superannuation fund to secure superannuation benefits for employees.
Yuruware will comply with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and the National Privacy Principles in relation to contractors, sub-contractors or prospective employees.
