We respect your privacy
1. When do we collect personal information?
Personal information is any information (whether fact, opinion or evaluative material and whether true or not) about you as an individual, from which your identity is apparent or can reasonably be ascertained.
We collect personal information, such as names, addresses and email addresses, which is necessary for conducting our business, providing our services to you and meeting our legal obligations. We collect personal information about you only by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way.
Generally, we collect personal information about you in the following situations:
when you establish a User Account; and
when you send us an email.
2. How we use and disclose your personal information
We endeavour to use and disclose personal information about you only for the primary purpose for which we have collected it. Sometimes it may be necessary to use or disclose your personal information for a secondary purpose, which is related to the primary purpose of collection.
Examples of the types of organisations we may wish to disclose information to for these purposes are:
our related bodies corporate and professional advisors; and
parties outside PerthEscortsWa who are contracted to us to provide a particular service on our behalf, such as: mailing operations, printers for marketing material, billing and debt-recovery functions, information technology services, and other service providers. Those contracted parties are not authorised by us to use personal information for anything other than the purpose for which we supply that information to them.
We absolutely do not transfer, disclose or sell your personal information, which we collect and hold, to external organisations in order to allow them to directly market their products and services to you.
In addition, we may disclose personal information when we believe that we are lawfully required to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal processes or authorities, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of PerthEscortsWa, our Visitors and Registered Users, our employees or the public. We may also disclose personal information where you consent to us doing so. That consent may be written, verbal or implied from your conduct.

We collect information on the Website automatically, including which sections of the site are most frequently visited, how often and for how long. This type of information is aggregated, non-personal information and helps us understand trends of Visitors and Registered Users so that we can further improve the Website.

5. Security of your personal information
We are committed to ensuring that your personal information is secure and will take reasonable steps to protect the personal information which we hold from misuse and loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
In order to protect your personal information we have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Your Registered User account information, including your email address, is accessible online only through the use of a unique username and password. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep your username and password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. Please advise us immediately if you believe your username and password has been misused.
Some of the ways we protect personal information include:
external and internal premises security;
restricting access to personal information only to staff who need it to perform their day to day functions;
maintaining technology products to prevent unauthorised computer access or damage to electronically stored information, such as requiring identifiers and passwords, firewalls and anti-virus software; and
maintaining physical security over paper records.
The internet is not a secure environment. If you use the internet to send us any information, it is sent at your own risk. We take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your personal information if we no longer need it. We have in place systems for destroying or de-identifying personal information that is no longer required, such as shredding of paper documents that contain such information.
