Privacy Policy

Privacy policy
Melbourne Gastro Surgery is interested in the privacy and safety of our visitors. The MGS Privacy Policy has been developed to protect users’ privacy in compliance with privacy legislation. The policy details circumstances under which personal information is obtained, used, and shared.

Information collected – Identified
MGS may collect identifiable information such as contact details. Further, access to downloads and member only services has been made possible by using information contained in MGS databases. Accordingly, we collect personal information to facilitate the granting of access to member only services and downloads.

Access to information collected
MGS will not knowingly make an attempt to identify users or their browsing activities. However, in the unlikely event of an investigation, a law enforcement agency or other government agency may exercise its legal authority to inspect our Internet Service Provider’s logs, and thus gain information about users and their activities. All of the identified information that MGS has used to grant access can be viewed and changed by users when they view their personal details.

Use and disclosure of information collected
MGS collects personal information for a number of purposes (being the primary purposes of collection), including:
• to provide services and benefits and maintain membership and service/benefits records;
• to assist, support, provide and improve continuing professional development and education and training;
• to enable internal administration, training, assessments and reviews.

Any information users provide will only be used for the primary purposes for which users have provided it or a secondary purpose if it directly relates to the primary purpose or for any other lawful purpose.

MGS engages third parties to perform certain business functions. Therefore, it is sometimes necessary to disclose personal information to those suppliers. Disclosures may also be made to other third parties, including advisors and regulatory authorities. Where disclosure takes place, CWL seeks to ensure that personal information is handled appropriately.

This website will use cookies to manage login and logout.

Personal data is maintained under strict security and can only be accessed internally by the MGS employees who have permission to do so.

Changes to privacy statement
MGS reserves the right to modify or amend this privacy statement at any time, provided that those modifications or amendments comply with applicable laws. CWL may provide further relevant privacy information to users at the point of collection, in which case, such information should be read in conjunction with this policy.
