Driver Safety Australia (“we” “DSA”) is committed to protecting your personal information in a responsible way in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Act) and the Australian Privacy Principles (APP) as set out in the Act.
This site is owned and operated by Driver Safety in Motion Pty Ltd, t/a Driver Safety Australia. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At DSA we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it. The information collected by DSA will be used for the operation and administration of the site and general business purposes.
Information DSA gathers and tracks
DSA gathers two types of information about users:
Specific Policy Areas
1. Electronic newsletters
We will sometimes offer a free electronic newsletter to users. DSA gathers the email addresses of paying users or users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.
2. Message boards/forums
3. “E-mail this to a friend” policy
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking “e-mail this to a friend”. The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. DSA may use a system to “tag” users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
DSA may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
DSA tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. DSA may break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type.
DSA sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
9. Links to other Web Sites
This website may contain links to other websites. DSA is not responsible for the privacy practices of linked web sites and therefore linked web sites are not subject to our privacy policies and procedures. When you click on links to other Web sites, we encourage you to read their privacy policies. Their standards may differ from ours.
DSA operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers. A login name and password are required to visit secure areas. Before personal information (such as individual test results) is published on the site, visitors are required to enter their student or log in details. This is to ensure that the information is displayed only to the intended person. You should ensure that your password is kept securely and cannot be discovered by anyone else.
DSA values information as an important resource. Accordingly, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information it collects, uses or discloses is accurate, complete, up-to-date and relevant to DSA’s functions or activities.
We have a range of safeguards, procedures and policies in place and we will take all reasonable steps to protect information from misuse and loss, data breaches, unauthorised access, modification, and disclosure. If a data breach is identified, we will comply with the requirements of the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme under the Act.
DSA will destroy or permanently de-identify personal information if DSA no longer needs the information for the purpose it was collected.
