AusCam Freedom Project Incorporated (AFP) is committed to protecting your privacy.
Confidentiality of your information is fundamental to AFP and its entities (Soulful Discoveries) and all information received and held is subject to the strictest duties of confidentiality. Protecting your privacy is important to us and AFP is committed to using your information responsibly.
AFP ensures that all information it collects, holds and discloses, about individuals is in accordance with the requirements of the Australian Federal Government’s Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), including the Australian Privacy Principles, and that your confidentiality is always maintained.
We collect most of your personal information directly from you. For example, when you fill out an online form, complete a survey, make a donation, sign up to our e-newsletter or contact us via email or phone.
The kinds of information we collect about you include:
- Personal details (such as your name and address and gender)
- Contact details
- Payment information for donations
- The ways that you have supported our work
Use of your personal information:
AFP uses your personal information for the purpose that it was collected for and to provide you with updates on our work.
We use your information primarily to:

- Provide goods and services (Soulful Discoveries Tours)
- Conduct marketing activities
- Recruit and manage Board members, Staff, or volunteers

AFP may disclose your personal information to third parties who assist us in supplying our goods, services and programs or who perform functions on our behalf. We may also disclose your personal information to third parties where required by law and to anyone else whom you authorise us to disclose it to. We do not rent or sell your information and will not exchange your information without your permission. We will only use this personal information to get in touch with you about things relevant to your interest in AFP, unless you tell us not to.
Security and storage:
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) on our website, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). When credit card details are collected, we simply pass them on in order to be processed as required. We never permanently store complete credit card details.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it and take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information. This includes complying with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard that covers security of payment card information.
Privacy and Our Website:
We use Google Analytics to monitor our website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users’ computers. The information generated is used to create reports about the use of our Website. Google will store this information. If you do not want your visit to our website data reported by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. For more details on installing and uninstalling the add-on, please visit the Google Analytics opt-out page at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
We use this information to determine how many people are visiting our website, which pages they look at and how long they look at certain pages for. These results do not identify users individually, and we cannot identify you from this data.
From time to time we may provide links to other websites. For example to purchase tickets to a fundraising event/fundraising campaign or for referencing in a blog or research. These sites are not monitored or controlled by AFP and therefore we cannot take responsibility for their content, claims of offer or privacy practices – we recommend checking their privacy policies if you have any concerns.

Supporters and donors can request access at any time to personal information held about them. You can ask us to delete the information from our records at any time by simply contacting us via the contact details below.
