a. BioEye are bound by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), and any other privacy legislation that may apply in the jurisdiction in which you use our Website or App (Applicable Laws).
b. The object of the APPs is to protect the confidentiality of personal information and the privacy of individuals by regulating the way in which personal information is managed through our Website and our App. This Policy applies to all of the products, services, applications and websites offered by BioEye (collectively, Services) accessed by you.
2.) WHAT IS “PERSONAL INFORMATION”?
a. The Privacy Act currently defines “Personal Information” as meaning information or an opinion about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable:
i. whether the information or opinion is true or not; and
ii. whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.
b. If information does not disclose your identity or enable your identity to be ascertained, it will in most cases not be classified as “Personal Information” and will not be subject to this Policy.
c. Personal Information can include “health information”, which refers to information regarding an individual’s physical or mental health or a health service provided to an individual or “sensitive information”, which includes information or an opinion about an individual’s health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, criminal record, and sexual orientation, amongst other things (Sensitive Personal Information).
d. BioEye is committed to protecting the Personal Information it collects and regularly monitors its systems and procedures to ensure compliance with the APPs and this Policy. This Policy outlines the way in which BioEye deals with the Personal Information (including Sensitive Personal Information) it collects.
e. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any third-party websites that may be linked on our Website, or within the App.
