This document outlines some of the policies in place for Meaningful Ageing Australia and the associated website https://meaningfulageing.org.au/. For clarity and readability it has been kept to a minimum, however, should you need further details please don’t hesitate to contact us.
In order to run this website, certain information is collected about its users. Certain anonymous information, such as IP addresses, are collected by the website and third party plugins. These third party plugins allow for website features for the end user, such as sharing buttons, Twitter feeds, and Facebook information. Other third party plugins help maintain website security behind the scenes by tracking logins (e.g. Wordfence), or provide us with analytical data on pages visited (e.g. Google Analytics). This type of data is collected by many websites automatically as a user browses.
Further to anonymous information, we collect some specific details from users who wish to become members and/or make a purchase through our website. What we do with this information is outlined below:
Your name, address, and phone number
Used to deliver physical purchases to you, and to bill you for orders.
Your email address
Used to contact you regarding orders or membership.
Used to deliver digital purchases.
If you so wish, we can use your email address to send you newsletters and similar promotional emails. Collection and retention of email addresses is carried out by a third party, MailChimp. It is possible to unsubscribe from mailings at any time. Your email address is not passed on to other third parties.
Your organisation’s details
In order to become a member, the name, address, contact details, and other information about the organisation you represent are collected. Further to using these details to get in touch, some of this information is used to determine how much membership should cost for your organisation.
We do our utmost to protect any personal or organisational details we have collected through our website.
A variety of items are available through our online store, both physical and digital.
All prices are listed in Australian Dollars (AUD$).
Delivery within Australia is included in the pricing of items. For international orders a surplus may be added, details of which will be mentioned in the order process.
