We are committed to ensuring the privacy and security of all personal information collected from our customers and other parties that make contact with us.
Personal information refers to any information or opinion about an individual whose identity is apparent or may be reasonably ascertained from information or opinion.
We may also collect other information about your business which is not personal information.
Personal information that we collect
When you make an enquiry or submit an application or registration to Radiant instruments, we will need to collect information about you so that we can offer training, professional services or to complete any other transaction. When you ring us, we may also monitor or record telephone calls for staff training and quality maintenance purposes, or to verify discussions which take place. This information includes, but is not limited to, your name, your contact details, your requirements and relevant company, business and financial information.
We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we collect from you is accurate, up to date and complete and that when we use or disclose that information it remains accurate, up to date and complete. If you request that we correct or change information that we have previously provided to third parties, then we will do so provided it is reasonable and practicable to do so.
If any offers become available which we believe are of benefit to our customers, we will inform you. Where we collect your personal information from someone other than you, we will notify you that such information has been collected and the circumstances of that collection.
We do not receive unsolicited personal information about you from any third parties.
When you are simply enquiring about services or products, you have the option of not identifying yourself or alternatively you can use a pseudonym. However, not supplying your name or address might make it difficult for us to provide you with the information you need.

How we use information
The information that you provide will be collected and saved by us. We may use this information to assess your requirements and to offer and provide products, services, and training.
It may also be used for other purposes which you would reasonably expect, for example, for research, staff training, policy development, planning or for supply to third party service providers such as email marketing platforms we use for direct marketing to you, mailing houses that we use to send you surface post material, third party clearance houses or mercantile agents for account settlement.
We enter into agreements with third parties for their direct marketing of their products and services which we believe may be of interest to you. We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information to third parties for other marketing purposes.

If at any point in time you would like your saved data to be deleted from our system, please contact us and we will arrange to have your records deleted from our database.
Unless otherwise prohibited by law or our contractual obligations, we may disclose personal information if required to do so by law, court order, or as requested by a governmental or law enforcement authority, or in the good faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable. Such situations may include: to perform, maintain or enforce contracts with our users or suppliers; to protect the rights or properties of Radiant Instruments Pty Ltd, our business affiliates, our users, or others; or when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing, or who may be threatening to cause, interference with or damage to our rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise; or when anyone else could be harmed by such activities.
Opting out of receiving direct marketing and promotional information
From time to time, you will be sent newsletters, promotional material updates and other useful information. We hope that you will find these items informative and useful. However, should you choose to not receive them at the time of either joining or renewing membership with Victorian Chamber or at some other time, you can do so by clicking on the relevant button on the website, ticking the box provided on forms or by advising our staff who are relevant to your contact with the Radiant. If you no longer wish to receive direct marketing from third parties which have entered into agreements with us please let us know and we will promptly advise them.
Our commitment to data security
All information captured by Radiant Instruments Pty Ltd is stored securely at all times and will never be provided to any unauthorised third parties.
From time to time we review whether we still need to retain your personal information. If it is no longer required for its purpose for which we originally collected it then we will delete your information from our database or ensure the information is de identified.
Access to your personal information
If you wish to know what information we have gathered about you, you can request this information by contacting us. If any of the personal information provided by you changes, is inaccurate, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading please let us know what information needs to be deleted, changed or corrected. We will endeavour to respond to your request within seven days. However we are not required by the Privacy Act to give you access to your information in certain circumstances such as where your request for access if frivolous, vexatious or information relates to legal proceedings between us and yourself and would not be accessible by the process of court discovery in these proceedings.
If you would like a free copy of this policy in paper form or in some other form please make that request. In some circumstances we may ask you to pay reasonable out of pocket expenses, such as photocopy costs, associated with satisfying your request.
If we refuse to give you access to your information or to give access in its manner requested by you then we will give you a written notice that sets out:
- Our reason for refusal except to the extent that, having regard to the grounds for the refusal, it would be unreasonable to do so and;
- The mechanisms available to complain about the refusal; or
- Any other matter prescribed by the regulations of the Privacy Act.
If we were to refuse to correct your personal information when you request that we do, we will provide a written notice which will set out both our reason for our refusal unless it is unreasonable to do so and the mechanism available to complain about our refusal and any other matter prescribed by regulations to the Privacy Act. You also have the right to request that we associate a statement with your information stating that you say that the information is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading.
