ShortPress, brought to you by oOh!media Operations Pty Limited (ABN 44 094 713 210) and its related bodies corporate (ShortPressweourus), recognises the importance of protecting the privacy and the rights of individuals in relation to their personal information.  This document is our privacy policy and it tells you how we collect and manage your personal information.

We respect your rights to privacy under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Act) and we comply with all of the Act’s requirements in respect of the collection, management and disclosure of your personal information.

What is your personal information?

When used in this privacy policy, the term “personal information” has the meaning given to it in the Act.  In general terms, it is any information that can be used to personally identify you.  This may include your name, address, telephone number, email address and profession or occupation.  If the information we collect personally identifies you, or you are reasonably identifiable from it, the information will be considered personal information.

In some cases we may also collect your personal information through the use of cookies.  When you access our website, we may send a “cookie” (which is a small summary file containing a unique ID number) to your computer.  This enables us to recognise your computer and greet you each time you visit our website, without bothering you with a request to register or log-in.  It also helps us keep track of products or services you view, so that we can send you news about those products or services.  We also use cookies to measure traffic patterns, to determine which areas of our websites have been visited, and to measure transaction patterns in the aggregate.  We use this to research our users’ habits so that we can improve our online products and services.  

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you can set your browser so that your computer does not accept them.  We may also log IP addresses (the electronic addresses of computers connected to the internet) to analyse trends, administer the website, track user movements, and gather broad demographic information.

We may also collect anonymous data (which is not personal information) relating to your activity on our websites (including IP addresses) via cookies, or we may collect information from you in response to a survey.  We generally use this information to report statistics, analyse trends, administer our services, diagnose problems and target and improve the quality of our products and services.  To the extent this information does not constitute personal information because it does not identify you or anyone else, the Australian Privacy Principles do not apply and we may use this information for any purpose and by any means whatsoever.

What happens if we can’t collect your personal information?

If you do not provide us with the personal information described above, some or all of the following may happen:

How can you access and correct your personal information?

You have certain rights to access personal information held by ShortPress.

We will not charge you for simply making the request and will not charge for making any corrections to your personal information.

There may be instances where ShortPress cannot grant you access to the personal information it holds.  For example, we may need to refuse access if granting access would interfere with the privacy of others or if it would result in a breach of confidentiality.  If that happens, we will give you written reasons for any refusal.

If you believe that personal information we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate, then you may request us to amend it.  We will consider if the information requires amendment.  We will consider if the information requires amendment.  If we do not agree that there are grounds for amendment, we will add a note to the personal information stating that you disagree with it.
