Your payment information
Campion Education does not store your credit card details for online payments. Online transactions are processed directly through our secure payment gateway. We are provided with the last 4 digits of your credit card number and the payment status for reference purposes only.
How we store this information
We take all reasonable steps to ensure all personal information stored is protected from misuse, interference and loss from unauthorised access. We hold personal information on secure databases on secure premises. Only authorised members of staff have access to this information. We will endeavour to ensure that any personal information transferred is only in an encrypted form and we monitor access to IT systems to mitigate the risk of any misuse of data.
If you have a personal password that enables you to access certain parts of our Websites or Applications, or other service we operate, do not forget your responsibility to keep this password secure and confidential.
We will destroy or de-identify personal information where it is no longer required for the purposes outlined in this policy, unless we are required or authorised by law to retain the information. We will only retain your personal information for as long as needed for the purposes we collected it, such as providing products and fulfilling transactions you have requested, or to meet legal and regulatory requirements.
Personal information will be held for up to six months after a student leaves a school, after which it will be deleted. Parents and students can also request their information be removed.
Notifiable Data Breaches
Although unlikely, if we believe there has been an unauthorised access to, or loss of, any data stored by Campion, we will attempt to remedy the situation as soon as reasonably possible to prevent any serious harm or loss of information. However, following this remedial action, if we believe that there are still grounds to believe the unauthorised access or loss will result in serious harm to individuals to whom the information concerns, we will seek to notify those individuals.
Changes to this policy
In order to reflect the fact that our business is growing constantly, we reserve the right to change this policy at any time and our updated policy will be posted on our website. In the event the policy changes significantly we will notify you of the change via appropriate channels.
Accessing & correcting your information
The Privacy Act gives you the right to access and correct the information we hold.
To obtain access to your personal information you may be required to provide you must provide proof of identity, you must be reasonably specific about the information you seek to access and we may charge you a reasonable administration fee which accurately reflects the cost of providing the access in accordance with your request.
