We recognise the importance of privacy protection. Our policy for dealing with any personal information that you might disclose to us while visiting this website or registering as a user is explained below.
You can be certain that the information we receive about you will be treated as strictly confidential and will not be rented or sold to any third parties.
For individuals who register as volunteers through www.goodcompany.com.au, we collect some basic information including given name, surname, date of birth, postcode, state, employer/organisation, level of professional expertise, primary and secondary skill areas, a username and password (which you can choose), your email address, phone number, area of social interest, how you heard about goodcompany and why you are interested in volunteering. This information is kept in goodcompany's database and is not accessible or visible by any public users of the site. This information is used internally in order to improve our ability to source appropriate volunteering opportunities for you. We will use your email address in order to send regular email communications or newsletters containing news, details on upcoming events, volunteering information and stories about goodcompany.
You can update or change any of your details, or opt out of the email service at any time, by editing your user details at the website.
When a registered volunteer applies for a volunteering opportunity (a "wish"), the community group is alerted via email. They are then able to securely log into the goodcompany website to view your application. Your personal information viewable by the community group includes your name, state, employer/organisation, level of professional expertise, primary and secondary skill areas, areas of social interest and also a personal message written by the volunteer.
Once community groups elect to progress your application to the next stage, you will be alerted with an email directing you to securely login to the site, where you can view the community group contact details. It is the volunteers' responsibility to intitiate contact with the community group. At this stage of the process, community groups are able to view your basic contact details in the event they need to do further screening or the wish is no longer required.
For community groups who register with goodcompany at the website, we collect similar personal information as above (name, email address, username and password) as well as more detailed information about your community organisation including organisation name, overview, legal status, ABN, key contacts, financials, contact information, social category, number of employees/volunteers, insurance information and where you heard about goodcompany.
From this data, the only information which is displayed publicly on the website is organisation name, description, state, website, social category and which volunteer projects you have published to the site.
When volunteers apply for one of your volunteer projects, you will be alerted with an email and you are then able to securely log into the goodcompany website to view their application which includes the volunteer's name, state, employer/organisation, level of professional expertise, primary and secondary skill areas, areas of social interest and also a personal message written by the volunteer.
If you accept this application and progress the wish to the next stage, the volunteer will be alerted via email and can securely login to the website and view the community group's wish, name, contact person, telephone number and email address. You will also be sent a similar email. It is the volunteers responsibility to intitiate contact with the community group.
