Rhys Dyson (“Rhys”, “I”, “me”) values and respects the privacy of the people he deals with, and is committed to protecting your privacy and complying with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) and other applicable privacy laws and regulations.
“Personal information” means any information or opinion, whether true or not, and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable. In general terms, this includes information or an opinion that personally identifies you either directly (e.g. your name) or indirectly (e.g. your business or website).
The personal information I collect about you depends on the nature of your dealings with my services or what you choose to share with me. The personal information I collect about you may include:
First and/or last name
Mailing, street and/or billing address
ABN or ACN
Credit/debit card numbers
Bank account number and BSB
Images, logos and other website and graphic design assets
For the sake of services offered, Rhys does not require the collection of sensitive information about you, but may store such information if it is publicly shared content on your website, as part of your website content documents. This might include information or opinions about your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a trade union or other professional body, sexual preferences, criminal record, or health information
I collect information directly from you, when you:
Interact with me online
Interact with me over the phone
Interact with me in person
Fill out a website enquiry form
I may also collect your personal information from third parties or through publicly available sources, for example from your social media or Google Business Profile, business.gov.au. I collect your personal information from these third parties to verify the accuracy of your business details on your website.
I use personal information for many purposes in connection with our functions and activities, including the following purposes:
To keep in contact with you directly
Provide you with information or services that you request from me
Register third party accounts and services on your behalf (see below)
Set up billing for third party accounts and services on your behalf
Internal administrative purposes (e.g. project management, billing)
I may disclose your personal information to third parties in accordance with this Policy in circumstances where you would reasonably expect me to disclose your information. For example, I may disclose your personal information to:
My third party service providers (e.g. domain name registrars, hosting providers, website builder platforms, project management and billing tools and services)
Although I primarily aim to support Australian-based companies and services, some of the third-party service providers I disclose personal information to may be based in or have servers located outside of Australia, including America and India.
I will only disclose to overseas third parties if:
You have requested a service, resulting in your contact information being stored in a third-party CRM software based outside of Australia
You have agreed to register to use a platform or service that is based outside of Australia ( e.g. Webflow )
You have directly requested me to transfer your data to a third-party provider
I will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information that I hold about you is kept confidential and secure, including by:
Only storing data that is necessary to continue providing services you have requested
Storing data in as few places as possible, with limited copies
Destroying physical data that is no-longer required to be stored
Having technological measures in place ( e.g. anti-virus software, fire walls, keeping software up to date, regularly changing, and using strong passwords )
Restricting access to only personnel who require that information to effectively provide services to you
Only sharing data with personnel you have provided permission to have data shared with ( e.g. other employees, family members, account keepers )
My website uses Pixel Together, Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager to help me better understand visitor traffic, so I can improve my services. Although this data is mostly anonymous, it is possible that under certain circumstances, it may be possible for me to connect it back to you.
I will not keep your personal information for longer than I need to. In most cases, this means that I will only retain your personal information for the duration of your relationship with me unless I am required to retain your personal information to comply with applicable laws, for example record-keeping obligations.
How to access and correct your personal information
Rhys will endeavour to keep your personal information accurate, complete and up to date.
If you wish to make a request to access and / or correct the personal information I hold about you, you should make a request by contacting me directly. With such requests, I will respond within 30 days, following the below process:
Within 30 days of the first request, I will respond by supplying a list of all stored information
Within an additional 30 days from date of receiving amendments, I will update all information that I have stored, or destroy requested data, as long as that data is not required for providing ongoing services
Note that I may require proof of your identity and full details of your request before I can process your request
In cases of extensive time spent collating and updating data (e.g. there is a lot of data, or it requires further sorting and organising), and/or a third-party service is required to transfer the data, an admin or reimbursement fee may be required.
Rhys’s website(s) may contain links to websites operated by third parties. If you access a third party website through my website(s), personal information may be collected by that third party website. I make no representations or warranties in relation to the privacy practices of any third party provider or website and I am not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of any third party provider or website. Third party providers / websites are responsible for informing you about their own privacy practices and I encourage you to read their privacy policies.
For complaints about how I handle, process or manage your personal information, please contact me directly. Note that I may require proof of your identity and full details of your request before I can process your complaint.
Please allow up to 30 days for me to respond to your complaint. It will not always be possible to resolve a complaint to everyone’s satisfaction. If you are not satisfied with my response to a complaint, you have the right to contact the Office of Australian Information Commissioner (at www.oaic.gov.au/) to lodge a complaint.
If you have a question or concern in relation to my handling of your personal information or this Policy, or would like to lodge a complaint or request to access and correct your data, please use the contact form on this page.
