Jstar Privacy Policy
home > privacy policy
Your privacy is an important consideration for us here at Jstar. In an age where our digital identities are precious parts of ourselves, your online security becomes increasingly vital.

Whenever we collect your personal information – whether through online forms on this site, via e-mail contact, or in your dealings with Jstar Global – we adhere closely to the legal regulations binding the use of such information.

The amendments to the National Privacy Act of 2000, require internet sites and businesses to develop privacy statements like this one, which inform you about how we will collect, store, use, and disclose the personal information of our customers or other individuals. This privacy policy will also explain how we handle personal information, and how individuals can access any personal information in our possession.

How we collect your personal information

We only collect your personal information where that personal information is necessary for one
or more of our functions or activities. Depending on your relationship with us, this information
may include, but is not limited to, the following information:

  • Name
  • Address
  • E-mail address
  • Telephone number
  • Computer specifications
  • Business name
  • Information about your use of our products or services
When collecting this personal information, we will do so only by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way.

When collecting personal information about you which, for the purposes of the Privacy Act is regarded as sensitive information or health information, we will collect that information from you or from third parties only with your consent.

Use and disclosure of your personal information

Jstar Global collects, uses and discloses your personal information for a range of purposes. These purposes depend largely upon your relationship with us.

We will use personal information for the primary purpose for which it was collected. The primary purpose of collection is the main reason we collect your personal information in the first instance. For example, if you are a customer of Jstar Global, the primary purpose may be to facilitate your purchase of a Jstar product or service.

Generally speaking, Jstar Global uses and discloses personal information for purposes such as:

  • to provide Jstar products and services
  • to conduct research about our audience (anonymous
  • to contact clients and customers

In the event of an online transaction taking place, certain details must be disclosed to a third-party so that the purchase can be processed and authorised by your banking institution. Where Jstar does disclose your personal information to other parties it has in place arrangements or understandings with those third parties to ensure that your personal information is handled in a manner consistent with our obligations under this privacy policy. Where appropriate, we will ensure that your personal information is de-identified before being used or destroyed or de-identified if it is no longer necessary that it be retained.

The types of persons and organisations to which may disclose your personal information include the following:

  • Account-keeping systems operators;
  • Payment systems operators (e.g. credit-card authorisation service);
  • Other parties to whom we are authorised or required by law to disclose information.

Security and quality of your personal information

Jstar Global will take reasonable steps to ensure that any of your personal information that we collect, store, use or disclose is accurate, complete and up to date.

We will also take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification, or disclosure in accordance with the requirements of our privacy policy and the Privacy Act.

For example, when a purchase is made on our site, or a message sent via one of our online forms, your details are sent via a secure link to the relevant place of processing. In the case of a transaction, your credit-card details are processed via a 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer connection to our payment gateway; messages are sent via PGP encryption.

Requests for access to and correction of your personal information

You have a right of access to your personal information. You may request details of the personal information we hold about you, by writing to or contacting us at any time.

No fee will be charged for making the request. We may charge a fee for the provision of this information to cover administrative costs. However, we will inform you of any fee at the time a request is made.

In general, we will allow access to the personal information we hold about you. However, we may deny access to personal information to you to the extent that:

  • Providing access would pose a serious threat (or in the case of personal information other than health information, a serious and imminent threat) to the life or health of any individual; or
  • Providing access would have an unreasonable impact upon the privacy of other individuals; or
  • Your request for access is frivolous or vexatious; or
  • It is otherwise appropriate for us to deny access in accordance with the Privacy Act.
We will not deny you access to any personal information following an access request without providing you with a reason for the denial. Where providing access would reveal evaluative information generated within Jstar in
connection with a commercially sensitive decision-making process, we may give you an explanation for the commercially sensitive decision rather than direct access to the information.

If you are aware that any of your personal information is inaccurate, incomplete, or out of date following an access request, or because your circumstances have changed, please inform us so that we can update our records. We will correct any incorrect personal information and will not refuse to make a correction without providing you with a reason for the refusal. However, if we do refuse to make a correction, we will take reasonable steps to place with the disputed information a statement from you claiming that the disputed information in your opinion is not accurate, complete, or up-to-date.
