Riverton Institute of Business & Technology is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) in Schedule 1 of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (see ) and is committed to adopting the highest standards to safeguard our customers' personal and sensitive information. The APPs provide standards, rights and obligations in respect of how personal information is handled from collection, to use, disclosure, storage and access.
Riverton's policy is set out as below:
Collection of information
We will only collect personal information about you and given by you when you submit an enquiry, brochure request or direct application for a course through one of our online forms. We will always let you have a copy of all personal information that have about you upon request. Contact us online.
Purpose for use of information
We collect information about our users for a variety of purposes. These include the following:
Disclosure of information
We will only disclose personal information for the primary purpose for which it was collected and will not use it for any secondary purposes without your consent. We will only use your information with your consent, or as permitted or required by law or as authorised by the APPs. We may use or disclose personal information (other than sensitive information) for the purpose of direct marketing, but must only do so in accordance with the APPs.
Keeping information about you secure is very important to us. We use the highest standards of encryption for online transactions involving sensitive data such as credit card details. In today's world no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you send to us, and you do so at your own risk. Riverton will take precautions to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of your user data under our control. Only authorized employees and subcontractors will be given access to the information you provide us with prior consent.
Transferring your information abroad
Information supplied to us by you will only be transferred abroad by us or our partners for the purpose of performing contractual obligations owed by us to you; for example, to supply an educational agent in your country or region with your information to enable that agent to provide you with services you require.
How can you access and update information which we hold about you?
Automated decisions taken by us about you
Assumptions are made about your interests depending on the information you have supplied to us about yourself, and about the website you were visiting when you did so. For example, if you enquired about a course on riverton.edu.au , we assume you are interested in vocational and training courses in Australia.
