Collection and use of personal information
When we ask you to provide personal information we will do so in a lawful and fair way. Generally, this information is collected to allow us to contact you, to facilitate your request to contact a company that has information listed on our sites, before you enter a contest or to order e-mail newsletters. For example: If you request further information about a product listed on our sites you may be asked for your address, telephone and other contact details to facilitate this request. The provision of the information is voluntary. However, if you choose not to provide the information requested we may be unable to keep you informed about products, services, offers and events or to process your request e.g. registration, purchase or enquiry, and this may preclude or limit your access to the goods and services available. We will tell you why we are collecting information and identify any third parties the information is disclosed to. If we collect the information from a third party we will take reasonable steps to advise you of that collection. We will also provide details of how and where to contact us.
Disclosure of information
We will only disclose personal information in accordance with the Act. This means that it will be disclosed if:
we told you when collecting it that it would be disclosed for that purpose or for a related purpose that you would reasonably expect;
we have your consent;
it is part of business assets which we are selling;
we are required by law to disclose it; or
it is otherwise permitted under the Act.
If you wish to opt out from receiving further e-newsletters, marketing offers and the like, we will provide you with a low cost option. Any direct marketing offers will contain an opportunity to opt out.
Quality of information
Architecture Media will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we collect, use and disclose is accurate, complete and up to date. Before allowing you to update your information we may require you to exactly match details as they appear in our records – details such as, First Name, Surname, Email Address, Suburb – to ensure that other people do not have access to your personal details stored by us.
We are committed to protecting your privacy and will take reasonable steps to ensure that the information we collect is protected from loss and misuse and from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure.

You can access your personal details on request except under circumstances where this access may be denied by provisions of relevant legislation.
