This week is Privacy Awareness Week (4 to 10 May), which is held each year to promote awareness of privacy issues and the importance of protection of personal information.
iiNet is participating in Privacy Awareness Week as part of our commitment to protecting our customers’ privacy. For those on social media, you can follow the events and discussion during Privacy Awareness Week via the hashtag #2014PAW.
Our Privacy Statement
On 12 March this year, the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) were introduced. These principles regulate the handling of personal information by Australian Government agencies and some private sector organisations, including businesses like iiNet.
We’ve created a new Privacy Statement which explains how we collect, use, share and hold your personal information.
But privacy isn’t just about the law. We’re committed to providing excellent service and protecting our customers’ personal information is very important to us.
What can I do to protect my personal information?
We constantly monitor the security of our network and we take customer privacy and the security of personal information very seriously.
Importantly, there are steps that you can also take to guard your own personal information.
As part of the iiNet Blog’s Online Safety series, we’ve also published articles about security and how to protect your information.
