Privacy Policy

Activate Training Centre, trading as Vision College, recognise that many people are concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information. This policy sets out our obligations under the Privacy Act 1993 and our own beliefs about what's right in this sensitive area. We may update the policy from time to time.

The personal information we collect may include details of your name, date of birth, gender, marital status, current and previous address, telephone/mobile phone numbers, e-mail address, employment details, insurance details, credit card and complaint details (including details about any injuries or reactions and resulting actions). It may also include details of the services or products we provide to you, as well as the status of those services or products. We collect this information for purposes which include:

  • provision of relevant services and products to you, including dealing with any enquiries or complaints;
  • administration and management of services and products, including charging, billing and collecting debts
  • promotion and market to you of other services or products which we consider may be of interest and where you agree to receiving any such communication

If you do not provide personal information where requested our ability to provide products/services to you may be impaired or restricted. All information is collected and held by Activate Training Centre.

We may collect your personal information:              

  • when reasonable and practicable, directly from you (e.g. when you provide information to us over the phone or in documents such as an application or complaint form);
  • from information you provide to us in connection with a consumer promotion
  • from third parties e.g. from other divisions of our company
  • from third parties supplying our products

You authorise us to collect personal information about you from third parties, including those set out above.

Our website:

Our websites do not collect personally-identifiable information from individuals, unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This means we don't require you to register or provide information to us in order to view our site. If you register for our online services, we use the information you supply for the purpose of providing the services you've requested. If you specifically agreed to follow-up contact by us, or asked to be put on our mailing list when you registered we may also contact you from time to time.

You can always change your preference for follow-up contact by e-mailing us at any time. Our websites sometimes include notices of other promotions we are conducting, and we may request you to enter electronically in some cases. If that occurs, we will use the information you provide for the purpose of conducting the promotion. Where you agree, we may also use the information to promote and market to you other services and products which we consider may be of interest to you.

The cookie doesn't track any personal information about you or provide us with any way to contact you, and the cookie doesn't extract any information from your computer. Cookies are simply the best way for us to be able to offer you the most enjoyable and hassle free online environment.  Storage of your information, all your personal details and information are only accessible by authorised personnel and are either:

  • destroyed or returned to you if no longer needed; or
