Privacy policy

The Charan Foundations activities and services, and the purposes for which it collects personal information are as follows:

  • The Charan Foundation will only collect personal information to the extent that it is relevant for the relationship it has with each person.
  • The Charan Foundation also collects and holds sensitive information, for example about a nominated project contact, donor or a beneficiary of an Charan Foundation grant. This may include information about health, disability and racial or ethnic origin.

How the Charan Foundation collects and holds personal information

If it is reasonable and practical to do so, the Charan Foundation will collect personal information directly from the individuals concerned with their consent. This may be through application forms, donation forms, over the telephone, the internet, or in person.

How the Charan Foundation keeps personal information accurate and up-to-date

The Charan Foundation seeks to maintain the quality of its information holdings by taking reasonable administrative and technical steps to make sure that the information collected, used and disclosed is accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you wish to correct the personal information the Charan Foundation holds about you, please contact us using the details set out below.

The only people who are allowed to handle or have access to personal information are those engaged to undertake the work of the Charan Foundation and those who perform services for the Charan Foundation who need personal information to do their jobs.

Complaints

If you wish to make a complaint about the way we have handled your personal information (including if you think we have breached the Privacy Act), you may do so by contacting us.
