Terms of Use

Privacy and use of information provided to the Mercy Foundation

The Mercy Foundation Ltd may use personally identifiable information to enable emailing, to improve our Website, to provide a service, and for system administration.

We may also use personally identifiable information for our own promotional purposes.

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that all information we collect or use is accurate, complete, up-to-date, stored in a secure environment and accessed only by authorised persons.

No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect personal information from misuse, loss or unauthorised access, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted for use or received from our online services.  These activities are conducted at the user’s own risk.  As soon as we receive a transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security.

We will not share any information with third parties, except as provided by civil Privacy Legislation.

If personally identifiable information is not to be used for promotional purposes, our Office may be contacted by email at office@mercyfoundation.com.au to make that request.

Personally identifiable information may be viewed or changed, updated or corrected it as needed.  Our Office may be emailed at office@mercyfoundation.com.au to make that request.

If the Mercy Foundation does not allow access to personal information, we will provide reasons for our decision, and how to appeal that decision.

The safety of children is very important to us.

We ask that children under the age of 18 have a parent or guardian verify their contact with us.  Whilst we will make every reasonable effort to ensure that children's privacy and other rights are not compromised, it is ultimately the responsibility of parents to monitor their children's Internet usage.

We will not share any information about you with third parties, except as provided by civil privacy legislation.
