Mivision.com.au (“mivision”, “we” or “us”) is bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (as amended from time to time) (the “Privacy Act”), the Australian Privacy Principles (“APPs”) and the privacy provisions or other applicable legislation. You can find out more about the Privacy Act and the APPs by calling the Office of the Privacy Commissioner on 1300 363 992 or through their website.
Mivision.com.au respects and upholds your rights to privacy protection under the APPs in regulating how we collect, use, disclose and hold your personal information.
This policy describes the way that Mivision.com.au collects, holds, uses and discloses personal information about individuals. Any personal information collected by Mivision.com.au is covered by this policy.
Personal information is information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable:
Collection and use of personal information
The organisation collects and uses personal information of registered Mivision.com.au members for the purposes of communication directly with the member and, where applicable to report continued education modules completed to the appropriate authority.
Information we collect about registered members includes:
The specific uses to which Mivision.com.au puts members’ personal information includes to develop, coordinate and implement professional development programs, to provide members with mivision e-newsletters, to notify members of new CPD modules available and to maintain an online report of CPD achievements. The CPD report of achievements is accessible by the registered member and mivision administrators, and, may be provided to the member’s relevant professional eye health association if appropriate.
The organisation obtains a member’s personal information primarily from the member themselves, although the organisation may also obtain personal information about members from their respective professional bodies, publicly available sources and, in Australia, the publicly available Register of Practitioners held by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). The information obtained from the AHPRA is limited to the information made available by AHPRA to the public.
Mivision.com.au may disclose personal information about members to third parties for the purpose for which that information was collected and also for related purposes that could reasonably be expected by the member. For example,
Mivision.com.au is based in Australia and in submitting your data to us you consent to the transfer of your data to this country. The transfer of your data will be limited to Australia as there is no requirement to transfer your data to any external third parties based outside this country. Should the need arise we will seek your approval and due consideration of confidentiality.
Mivision.com.au will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information it collects from members is accurate, complete and up-to-date. We encourage members to regularly review their membership record and contact Mivision.com.au if they have any concerns or make adjustments directly to their membership records as permitted online.
The personal information of members is stored on servers that are protected in controlled facilities. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Although the organisation strives to protect such information, Mivision.com.au does not warrant the security of any information transmitted to it over the internet and members do so at their own risk.
Members may request access to, and ask Mivision.com.au to make corrections to, the personal information that the organisation holds about them.
The member may ask us to provide this information:
Mivision.com.au will, on request, provide a member with access to the information we hold about that member, unless there is an exception which applies under relevant privacy laws. If Mivision.com.au refuses to provide access to the information, it will provide reasons for the refusal and inform the member of any exceptions relied upon.
If the personal information Mivision.com.au holds about a member is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date and the member asks the organisation to correct this information, Mivision.com.au will take reasonable steps to either correct this information or if necessary discuss alternative actions with the member.
Mivision.com.au will not adopt, use or disclose any identifier assigned to a member by a government agency, except where required by law.
It is an individual’s right to be dealt with anonymously, provided that it is lawful and practicable. Mivision.com.au will try to accommodate this wherever possible. However, it may not be possible for the organisation to fully comply with any request for service that the member may request, without access to that member’s personal information.
Mivision.com.au may disclose information to international organisations, such as a member’s relevant professional eye health association, if appropriate.
