3. Disclosure of personal information
3.1 Disclosure of personal information to third parties
NEURESOURCE GROUP may disclose your personal information to third parties for the following purposes:
- to provide the service you wish to use;
- for research purposes relating to the performance, quality, maintenance and improvement of the NEURESOURCE GROUP’s services and products;
- to customise and promote NEURESOURCE GROUP services which may be of interest to you;
- to provide technical support to you to use the NEURESOURCE GROUP’s services;
- if permitted or required by law; or
- otherwise with your consent.
In many cases, NEURESOURCE GROUP imposes contractual restrictions equivalent to those imposed on NEURESOURCE GROUP under the Privacy Act in respect of collection and use of personal information by those third parties. In some cases, such as social media networks, the NEURESOURCE GROUP’s ability to impose contractual restrictions is limited. In those circumstances, NEURESOURCE GROUP will carefully consider the risks to the protection of personal information when entering into arrangements with third parties.
These third parties may be located in Australia or overseas locations.
Under no circumstances will NEURESOURCE GROUP sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.
3.2 Information that you disclose publicly
NEURESOURCE GROUP provides content and services on a range of platforms with interactive features that you can contribute to.
When using digital services (including online and mobile services), we suggest that you use your discretion and exercise caution when providing your personal information. For instance, if you “share” information that you have posted on an NEURESOURCE GROUP website using a social media tool, it is likely that you will be sharing your personal information. NEURESOURCE GROUP has a limited capacity to protect personal information that you choose to share in this way.
Note that whenever you post personal information in publicly accessible places, such as chat rooms or message boards, this information becomes available to anyone with access to the internet. This information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information (such as your contact details) online, you may receive unwanted messages from other parties in return. Therefore, we recommend that you refrain from posting any information that you do not want seen in these public areas. For example, when participating in an NEURESOURCE GROUP forum or guest book, your name will appear on the message board. In some cases, it may be appropriate to use a pen name or pseudonym rather than your real name when you are online. You must not intentionally use the name of
another living person.
Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any personal information. Be responsible whenever you are online or using a digital service.
3.3 Information that is disclosed via other platforms or services
Some NEURESOURCE GROUP services may be integrated with external services, including social media networks. This may mean that information, for instance about your interests and activities, is tracked or pulled from other places (such as Facebook). If you are signed in to an NEURESOURCE GROUP service which is integrated with other media tools, this information may be available to others depending on the privacy settings you have in place on other platforms.
The number and nature of social media platforms is changing rapidly, and the way in which information is shared between them is becoming increasingly complex. To help you manage and protect your personal information, NEURESOURCE GROUP will ask you to opt-in before making your personal information available through an integrated service. You may also opt-out of your participation in most of the NEURESOURCE GROUP’s digital services. Information about how to opt-out will be provided in the particular service. However, you should be aware that NEURESOURCE GROUP may continue to store personal information provided by you prior to you opting-out.
Your ability to opt-out of a third party tool or platform will depend on the conditions governing your agreement with that third party.
