The address will be automatically collected and logged as part of the connection of your computer to GetSig’ web server and may be used to determine the total number of visits to each part of the website. If there is a security breach the relevant IP Address will be identified by the Internet Service Provider and the user may be contacted.
Like most websites, GetSig automatically collects information and data through the use of “cookies”. A “Cookie” is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server which enables a website to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s ongoing access to and use of the website and allows a website to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising. A cookie will not provide GetSig with personal information, therefore, if you have not supplied GetSig with any personal information, you can still browse the website anonymously. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, however you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of this or other websites which you visit.
Your Right to Access and Correct Information
We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information which we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete and up to date. You have the right to access the personal information we hold about you. If the information we hold is not accurate, complete and up to date, you can ask us to modify our records.
If you consider that the personal information which we hold about you is not accurate, complete and up to date, and we refuse your request to modify our records, we will write to you stating clearly why we believe that the personal information we hold should not be amended.
You can make a request to access the information we keep about you by contacting email@example.com
Our Right to Refuse
However, we are permitted to refuse access in certain circumstances, including where:
- you have not paid our reasonable costs for accessing and copying the information, or
- we consider your request to be frivolous or vexatious, or
- to do so is likely to prejudice an investigation of possible unlawful activity, or
- to do so will be unlawful, or
- we are otherwise legally entitled to deny your request (whether under the Information Privacy Principles, or generally at law).
Use of a mutually agreed intermediary may allow sufficient access to meet the needs of both parties. If we refuse your request to either access your personal information, or modify our records, we will provide you with the reasons for our refusal in writing via email.
