Dying with Dignity Victoria ("DWDV") recognizes the right of its members, supporters and donors about whom we have information to have this information protected. Personal information is information or opinion that allows others to identify you, and its protection is a responsibility that we take seriously.
We collect personal information from you (notably names and contact details) in order to administer our services to you, and to enable us to mobilize our human resources in support of the DWDV's aims. This information may be collected during personal meetings with you (for example, when you join as a member), by mail, or by telephone, fax, email or forms you submit via our web service.
DWDV is aware that there are some members who do not wish others to know of their membership. Subject to any overriding obligation which may be placed upon us by law, it is therefore our policy not to reveal the fact that you are a member, supporter or donor to others, even fellow-members of DWDV, unless you have authorised us to do so, or you have made your involvement in DWDV manifest by your own actions or statements (for example, by joining the Management Committee or a local DWDV group, or identifying yourself to others as a member, supporter or donor).
It is our policy not to make contact details of office-holders available to others without their prior authorization.
DWDV will not sell or provide lists of its members, supporters or donors to other organizations.
It is our policy to ensure that all who work in our office are aware of privacy and security issues, and that our administrative procedures and technology are consistent with this statement of intent.
