Consents and acknowledgements
- you explicitly consent to:
- the disclosure of personal information/personal data by @ WWW Pty Ltd ACN 071 461 875, an Australian incorporated proprietary company trading as The Dubs, to overseas recipients in jurisdictions including the United Kingdom where we reasonably believe Australian Privacy Principle 8.1 is not required to apply, therefore if you consent to that disclosure and the overseas recipient handles personal information in breach of the Australian Privacy Principles:
- we will not necessarily be accountable under the Australian Privacy Act (although the overseas recipient may be accountable under their local law and regulation, but the applicable privacy obligations and principles may differ from the Australian Privacy Principles);
- you may not be able to seek redress against us under the Australian Privacy Act (although you may have redress against the overseas recipient under their local law and regulation, but the redress may be different from that available in Australia); and
- the overseas recipient may be subject to foreign laws that could compel the disclosure of personal information/personal data to a third party such as an overseas authority; and
- you acknowledge that:
- the provision of personal information/personal data to us is not a pre-condition to receipt of all our services and you have had a genuine opportunity to withhold consent;
- you have been properly and clearly informed of the implications of providing consent;
- you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose your personal information/personal data for the purpose of direct marketing.
Our third party business partners, including without limitation Dianomi PLC, a United Kingdom incorporated public company with registered no. 04513809, may rely on the consents and acknowledgments you give.
In addition to any opt-out option included in communications with you, you may, by written notice at any time to our Data Protection/Privacy Officer at the contact details below and at no further cost to you, withdraw your consent to:

- any future disclosure of your personal information/personal data to an overseas recipient,
without affecting the lawfulness of collection, holding, use, processing or disclosure based on consent before its withdrawal.
Consent to our collection, holding, use, processing and/or disclosure of your personal information/personal data is not a pre-condition to the provision of all of our services, please contact our Data Protection/Privacy Officer should you seek alternatives, but we may find it more difficult to provide you with continued access to our services or those of our business partners such as Dianomi PLC in the event of your not consenting or withdrawing consent to our collection, holding, use, processing and/or disclosure of your personal information/personal data.
In order to:
- object to holding, use or processing of personal information/personal data by us for direct marketing;

The countries to which we send data for the purposes listed above may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. If we transfer your personal information/personal data to third parties in other countries we will perform those transfers in accordance with the requirements of applicable law.
How we treat personal information/personal data that is also sensitive information/special category data
Sensitive information/special category data is a sub-set of personal information/personal data that is given a higher level of protection under the Australian Privacy Principles and UK GDPR. Sensitive information/special category data means information relating to your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion, trade union or other professional associations or memberships, philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation, sexual practices or sex life, criminal records, health information or biometric information.
We do not aim to collect sensitive information/special category data, but it we do, provided you consent, your sensitive information/special category data may only be used and disclosed for purposes relating to the primary purpose for which the sensitive information/special category data was collected.
Sensitive information/special category data may also be used or disclosed if required or authorised by law.
Our commitment to you
Your personal information/personal data will:
- be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner by us;
- only be collected for the specific purposes we have identified in the ‘collection and use of personal information/personal data’ clause above and personal information/personal data will not be further processed in a manner that is incompatible with the purposes we have identified;
- be collected in a way that is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purpose for which the personal information/personal data is processed;
- be kept up to date, where it is possible and within our control to do so (please let us know if you would like us to correct any of your personal information/personal data);
- be kept in a form which permits us to identify you, but only for so long as necessary for the purposes for which the personal information/personal data was collected;
- be processed securely and in a way that protects against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage.
Anonymity: Where practicable we will give you the option of not identifying yourself or using a pseudonym in your dealings with us. We have concluded it is not practicable for us to give you the option of not identifying yourself or using a pseudonym when providing you with our Special Research Reports.
Storage and security
We are committed to ensuring that the personal information/personal data we collect is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures such as the pseudonymisation and encryption of personal information/personal data, to safeguard and secure personal information/personal data and protect it from misuse, interference, loss and unauthorised access, modification and disclosure.
We are not able to specify in advance the period for which your personal information/personal data will be stored, but we will only retain your personal information/personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information/personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information/personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information/personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal information/personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information/personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for analytics, research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this anonymised information indefinitely without further notice to you.
