Here at The LifeStyle Channel group (‘TLC’) we understand the importance of keeping your personal information secure and private.
TLC recognises that your privacy is very important to you. For this reason, if we can (and you want to), you do not have to identify yourself when you use or access most of the features of the Site.
For the purposes of this Privacy Statement, Personal Information means information or an opinion (including information or an opinion forming part of a database), whether true or not, and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an individual whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information or opinion.
As part of TLC's commitment to the protection of Your Personal Information we have developed this policy in line with the National Privacy Principles (NPPs) developed by the Australian Federal Privacy Commissioner (now the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC)) which represent industry best practice.
Your Personal Information is collected to enhance your use of the site and continually improve our site.
We collect personal details, such as your email address, name, date of birth and other information only when you enter certain areas of the site and register with us for competitions, promotions or when you sign up to receive email newsletters from us.
TLC will use all reasonable endeavours to maintain the security of Your Personal Information.
We require our staff and service providers to respect the confidentiality of Your Personal Information.
TLC will not disclose information that personally identifies you to advertisers. TLC may be required to disclose some information that does not personally identify you to advertisers to provide advertisers with aggregate statistics of people that have seen or linked to their advertisements on our site. This provision of information with advertisers assists TLC with improvements to the site and assists us to provide the site to users at no cost.
TLC may provide certain information about you to its related bodies corporate. Subject to your prior approval, TLC's commercial sponsors, advertisers, business partners, program distributors or associates located both in and outside Australia ('TLC Partners') may wish to send you information about their products or services.
If you subsequently decide that you do not wish to receive information about the products and services of TLC's Partners, please Contact Us with your request to be removed from our email database list. We will use reasonable endeavours to remove your name within 14 days of receipt of notice.
TLC will use all reasonable endeavours to keep Your Personal Information accurate. Please Contact Us to examine Your Personal Information if required. We will use reasonable endeavours to provide a complete list of Your Personal Information within 14 days of receipt of your enquiry.
You may Contact Us to amend any of Your Personal Information that is inaccurate or request that Your Personal Information be deleted. We will use reasonable endeavours to amend or delete your records as requested within 14 days of receipt of notice. If applicable, any legal requirement on TLC to maintain certain records of Your Personal Information shall prevail over any of your requests.
TLC's Partner sites may collect additional personal information from you in addition to Your Personal Information supplied to TLC. You acknowledge that TLC is not responsible for the content or practices of the sites operated by our Partners including the manner in which they collect, store, use or disseminate your personal information.
TLC and this Privacy Statement may be subject to applicable legislation, regulations and codes of practice. To the extent that this Policy exceeds the minimum obligations of TLC under the Commonwealth and State legislation, this Policy serves as documentation of our voluntarily self-imposed standards. While we are determined to meet those standards as best we can, to the extent permitted by law, TLC is not liable if it does not adhere to any of these standards, for any loss, liability, costs, expense or damage arising as a result of TLC failing to meet any of the voluntarily self-imposed standards in this Statement.
