This personal information can be obtained in many ways including correspondence, by phone, by email, via our website greenerfamilies.org.au from other publicly available sources and other third parties. We don’t guarantee website links or policies of authorised third parties.
We collect your personal information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you and marketing. We may also use your personal information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing.
When we collect personal information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.

You have the right to access the personal information we hold about you and to update and/or correct it, subject to certain exceptions. If you wish to access your personal information, please contact us in writing. You will be required to provide identification before we release the requested information.
