Data Collection

Jack Sim Publications undertakes to collect personal information by means that are:

  • Fair;
  • Legal; and
  • Transparent.

If you visit Jack Sim Publications' web-site, your web-browser automatically discloses, and Jack Sim Publications’s web-server automatically logs, the following information: the date and time, the IP address from which you issued the request, the type of browser and operating system you are using, the URL of any page that referred you to the page, the URL you requested, and whether your request was successful. This data may or may not be sufficient to identify you.

Any additional data that you provide, e.g. in a web-form, may also be logged. This data may or may not be sufficient to identify you.

Any additional data that your web-browser automatically provides may also be logged. This will be the case, for example, if your browser has previously been requested to store data on your computer in 'cookies' and submits them each time you request a web-page within a particular domain (such as ghost-tours.com.au). This data may or may not be sufficient to identify you.

If you disclose personal data to Jack Sim Publications in conjunction with an identifier such as your name or your credit-card details, Jack Sim Publications will collect your personal information. Moreover, any data that becomes available to Jack Sim Publications through any of the means described in the preceding paragraphs may be able to be associated with that identifier, and hence become your personal information.

Subject to the qualifications immediately below, Jack Sim Publications undertakes to collect personal information from you and not from other parties. This undertaking is qualified as follows:

  • Where Jack Sim Publications reasonably considers that the protection of its financial interests requires that it gather your personal information from other sources, or from additional sources. This applies in particular where Jack Sim Publications has a lending exposure to you, and seeks information about your creditworthiness;
  • Where Jack Sim Publications reasonably considers that its capability to deliver quality services to you will be materially enhanced by gathering your personal information from other sources. This applies in particular to consumer profile data.

Where Jack Sim Publications collects personal information from sources other than you, it undertakes:

  • To do so only by legal means;
  • To do so only with your Consent; and
  • To declare to you what sources it uses, and under what circumstances.

Jack Sim Publications undertakes to declare the purpose of collection in a manner which is clear and meaningful, and to avoid vague, highly inclusive statements such as 'to support our operations'.

Data Security

Jack Sim Publications undertakes to store personal information in a manner that ensures security against unauthorised access, alteration or deletion, at a level commensurate with its sensitivity.

Jack Sim Publications undertakes to store Personal information only in jurisdictions where data protections are at least equivalent to those required under the OECD Guidelines.

Jack Sim Publications undertakes to transmit Personal information in a manner that ensures security against unauthorised access, alteration or deletion, at a level commensurate with its sensitivity.

Jack Sim Publications undertakes to implement appropriate measures to ensure security of Personal information against inappropriate behaviour by Jack Sim Publications's staff-members and contractors. These include:

  • Training for staff in relation to privacy;
  • Access control, to limit access to Personal information to those staff and contractors who have legitimate reasons to access it;
  • Particularly in the case of sensitive data, audit trails of accesses, including the identities of staff and contractors accessing the data;
  • Reminders to staff and contractors from time to time about the importance of data privacy, and the consequences of inappropriate behaviour;
  • Declaration of appropriately strong sanctions that are to be applied in the event of inappropriate behaviour
  • Clear communication of policies and sanctions; and
  • Processes to audit, to investigate and to impose sanctions.

Data Use

  • Such other purposes as are subsequently agreed between Jack Sim Publications and You;
  • Such additional purposes as may be required by law. In these circumstances, Jack Sim Publications will take any reasonable steps available to it to communicate to You that the use has occurred, unless it is precluded from doing so by law; and
  • Such additional purposes as are authorised by law (in particular to protect Jack Sim Publications’s interests, e.g. if it believes on reasonable grounds that You have failed to fulfil your undertakings to Jack Sim Publications or have committed a breach of the criminal law).

Jack Sim Publications undertakes to use your personal information only if it has demonstrable relevance to the particular use to which it is being put.

Jack Sim Publications undertakes to use your personal information in such a manner as to take into account the possibility that it is not of sufficient quality for the purpose, e.g. because it is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, or out-of-context.

Data Disclosure

Disclosure refers to making your personal information available to any party other than Jack Sim Publications and You. The term disclosure may include many different conditions of data transfer, including selling, renting, trading, sharing and giving.
Jack Sim Publications undertakes to disclose personal information only under the following circumstances:

  • In the course of business being conducted between You and Jack Sim Publications, where disclosure is necessary to a contractor, such as a transport company. Where personal information is disclosed in this way, Jack Sim Publications undertakes to exercise control over Jack Sim Publications’s contractors to ensure that their actions are compliant with these Terms;
  • In other circumstances that are directly implied by the purpose agreed between You and Jack Sim Publications at the time of data collection or subsequently. Where personal information is disclosed in this way, Jack Sim Publications undertakes to exercise control over Jack Sim Publications’s contractors to ensure that their actions are compliant with these Terms;
  • With your consent, or at your request;
  • Where required by law, such as a provision of a statute, or a court order such as a search warrant or sub poena. In these circumstances, Jack Sim Publications will take any reasonable steps available to it to communicate to You that the disclosure has occurred, unless it is precluded from doing so by law;
  • Where permitted by law (e.g. the reporting of suspected breach of the criminal law to a law enforcement agency; and in an emergency, where Jack Sim Publications believes on reasonable grounds that the disclosure of your personal information will materially assist in the protection of the life of health of some person), provided that Jack Sim Publications will apply due diligence to ensure that the exercise of the permission is justifiable.

In all cases, Jack Sim Publications undertakes to disclose only such of personal information as is necessary in the particular circumstances.

Data Retention And Destruction

Subject to the qualifications immediately below, Jack Sim Publications undertakes:

  • Personal information may be retained in Jack Sim Publications’s logs, backups and audit trails within short-term retention cycles that are devised to protect the company's operations. In such cases, Personal information will be destroyed in accordance with those cycles;
  • Personal information may be retained beyond the expiry of its purpose if that is required by law, such as a provision of a statute, or a court order such as a search warrant or sub poena, or a warning by a law enforcement agency that delivery of a court order is imminent. In these circumstances, Jack Sim Publications:
  • will take any reasonable steps available to it to communicate to You that personal information is being retained, unless it is precluded from doing so by law; and
  • will only retain personal information while that provision is current, and will then destroy your personal information;
  • Personal information may be retained beyond the expiry of its purpose if it is authorised by law (in particular to protect Jack Sim Publications’s interests, e.g. if it believes on reasonable grounds that You have failed to fulfil your undertakings to Jack Sim Publications or have committed a breach of the criminal law). In these circumstances, Jack Sim Publications will only retain personal information while that situation is current, and will then destroy your personal information.
