Collection, use and disclosure of information
If you provide personal details to us on any online form and tick the 'Remember my details' option, your contact details will be retained for the next time you use that form. The information is saved as a cookie on the computer you are currently using. The subject matter you send us is not saved in this cookie.
If you have entered your email address on a feedback form, you will automatically receive a confirmation email containing your contact details and your message. This is optional for employment applications and using the Casey Youth Services website. Our website does not keep a record of your personal information.
We recommend you only use this option on your home computer (i.e.: not a public access computer within a library, Internet cafe or any other shared computer). Your contact details will be viewable if another user of the computer you are currently using revisits the City of Casey website.
If you subscribe to any subscription-based email services offered through this website or via email, your details will only be used to send you information on topics that you have selected that you are interested in. You can change your details and selection of topics of interest at any time. If you choose to remove yourself from subscription-based email services, your details will be permanently erased from our database.
We will only use the personal information provided by you for the purposes for which it was collected and any other authorised use. The information we collect may also be used for our planning and research purposes to improve the services to the community. We will never reveal personal information we collect to third parties unless disclosure is required or authorised by law.
We will also protect the quality and integrity of your personally identifiable information. We will utilise appropriate technologies and security methods to store the information collected and prevent unauthorised access and improper use of the information.
City of Casey e-newsletters
When signing up to email newsletters, you consent to the City of Casey sharing your details with our service provider, Campaign Monitor.
Campaign Monitor's servers are located in the United States of America (USA). They hold the information you provide. Relevant legislation of the USA will apply.
When subscribing to this service, you have the option of using an alias or generic email address. You can unsubscribe from our mailing services at any time by simply clicking the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the emails you receive.
We understand you may not feel comfortable subscribing under these terms and conditions. You are not obliged to do so. You can also access this news from the news and events sections on the City of Casey website.
Volunteer Matcher is an online program provided by the City of Casey for community groups and organisations (not-for-profit) seeking volunteers to match up with community members looking to donate their time, skills and energy for the community. Likewise, community members who would like to volunteer can use the website to see what volunteering opportunities are available within Casey. This is an automated web-based service. Information registered will only be used to enable individuals to be matched with volunteers that are seeking their skills.
The automated process ensures that the organisations are not aware of your email address and thus it is up to the individual to decide how much of their name, age, etc. is disclosed in the registration process.
The City of Casey reserves the right to remove any individual, organisation or company that it has not registered in good faith, such as offensive or inappropriate registrations.
Both services are provided as a free service and in good faith. The validity of people using this facility cannot be assured and due caution should be exercised.
