We don’t guarantee website links or the policies of authorised third parties.
We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you and providing information to our clients and marketing. We may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes that are closely related to the primary purpose and in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure.

Information we collect via our website and social media/eUpdate channels
We collect information in two ways when you choose to engage with the services provided on our online channels:
1. Information you provide (Personal Information) - For example, to use some of our services we may ask for personal information, like your name, email address and telephone number. If you want to join our social media networks, we have access to your public profile, which may include your name and photo.
2. Information we receive from your interaction with our services (Aggregated information - collected in an anonymous form) - For example, we may identify the type of device you use to access our services, age, gender and interests through third-party vendors such as Google Analytics, Facebook Insights and Instagram Analytics.
If you access social media and subscription channels such as Instagram, Facebook, YouTube you should be aware that any information you post onto such media is available for the public to see. You should therefore check your individual privacy settings for profiles and accounts on social media networks and their privacy policies. RISE™ strongly recommends that you regularly check and configure the privacy settings for your profiles and accounts to make sure that you know what information you are making available, and to which audience.
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 by us 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.
Data Quality and Security
While RISE™ takes reasonable precautions to protect the information it holds from unauthorised use, the nature of the information systems is such that the security of information cannot be guaranteed. RISE™ relies on commercially available technologies for the security of its information systems - this applies not only to RISE™ but to the use of online information security systems in general.
RISE™ relies on the information that users provide, and it is the users' responsibility to ensure that information they submit is accurate.

Google Analytics cookies do not collect personally identifiable information about your visits to the website. They do however collect other non-personal information including your IP address which is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. This information will help us understand and better meet our audience’s needs.
