Collection of personal information
FrogWatch SA will only record your email address if you install the FrogSpotter app, send us a message by email or you include it in an online form (such as registering for the members’ section or signing up for an email list). It will only be used to give you access to the members’ section, or to send you a reply. It will not be added to a mailing list or used for any other purpose without your consent. Email addresses are stored in a secure area of the FrogWatch SA system and will only be forwarded to appropriate staff members so they can answer your query.
If you make a request to be added to a mailing list, either through the online form or members’ section, you will only be added to the mailing list(s) specified. Only your name, user ID and your email address will be recorded. If you wish to change your details or be removed from the list at any time, please login to the members’ section or follow the instructions included in any email received through the mailing list.
The FrogWatch SA website contains links to other websites that are included on the basis that they contain related content. When a user clicks on a link to another site, they leave the FrogWatch SA website and are no longer protected by the FrogWatch SA privacy conditions.
Freedom of Information
Members of the public can apply to access their own personal information in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, 1991 which includes a right to apply to correct personal information that is out of date, incorrect or misleading.
This privacy statement will be continually reviewed in line with the ongoing development of the FrogWatch SA website and FrogSpotter app. This privacy statement complies with the guidelines set out in the South Australian Government's Information Privacy Principles.
