Make-A-Wish® Australia is strongly committed to protecting your privacy while interacting with our content, products and services. We want to provide a safe and secure environment for you.
This policy applies only to Make-A-Wish Australia and not to websites belonging to other companies or organisations that are linked from/to the Make-A-Wish Australia website.

Use of anonymous information
Make-A-Wish Australia automatically gathers anonymous information to monitor the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Make-A-Wish Australia website. We only use such data in the aggregate.

Use of personal information

If you do not want Make-A-Wish to communicate with you about activities other than the one(s) you engaged in, please call 1800 032 260.
There will be occasions where your personal information may be disclosed to other members of Make-A-Wish Australia or third parties acting on our behalf, where it is required or allowed by law or where you have otherwise consented.
For example, if you purchase products online from the Make-A-Wish Australia shop, Make-A-Wish Australia will need to disclose your personal information to third parties in order to bill and deliver your products. However, the disclosure will only be made where it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which you disclosed your personal information.
No sale of personal information
Under no circumstances will Make-A-Wish Australia sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.
Interacting online with Make-A-Wish Australia
When interacting with Make-A-Wish Australia, we suggest that you use your discretion and exercise caution when providing your personal information.
Note that whenever you post personal information in publicly accessible places, such as social media or message boards, this information becomes available to anyone with access to the internet. This information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible by the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Therefore, we recommend that you refrain from posting any information that you do not want seen in these public areas. For example, when participating in a Make-A-Wish Australia forum, your name will appear on the message board. Make-A-Wish Australia recommends that applicants registering online do not use their real names, but a pen name or pseudonym. You must not intentionally use the name of another living person.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any personal information. Be responsible whenever you are online.
Access and correction: Personal data
If Make-A-Wish Australia holds your personal information, Make-A-Wish Australia will where possible provide you with access to the information. Make-A-Wish Australia will take reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up to date.
Make-A-Wish Australia operates secure data networks that are designed to protect your privacy and security.

If you have any complaints relating to privacy issues, please notify Make-A-Wish Australia. While Make-A-Wish Australia accepts no liability for any material or links posted to the service, we will investigate all complaints.
