I have adopted the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act). The NPPs govern the way in which I collect, use, disclose, store, secure and dispose of your Personal Information.

What is Personal Information and why do I collect it?
Personal Information is information or an opinion that identifies an individual. Examples of Personal Information I collect includes names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, and addresses.
This Personal Information is obtained in many ways including interviews, correspondence, by telephone, by email, via my website www.jaclyntan.com.au, from your website, from media and publications, from other publicly available sources, from cookies, and from third parties. I don’t guarantee website links or policy of authorised third parties.
I collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing my services to you, providing information to clients, and marketing. I may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from my mailing/marketing lists at any time by contacting me via email. When I collect Personal Information I will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why I am collecting the information and how I plan to use it.
Sensitive information is defined in the Privacy Act to include information or opinion about such things as an individual's racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a trade union or other professional body, criminal record or health information.
Sensitive information will be used only:
- For the primary purpose for which it was obtained
- For a secondary purpose that is directly related to the primary purpose
- With your consent; or where required or authorised by law.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, I will collect your Personal Information only from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties. In such a case I will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Your Personal Information may be disclosed in a number of circumstances including the following:
- Third parties where you consent to the use or disclosure; and
- Where required or authorised by law.

Maintaining the Quality of your Personal Information
It is an important to us that your Personal Information is up to date. I will take reasonable steps to make sure that your Personal Information is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
