“Life Eternal Trust Australia” (LETA) incorporating “Sahaja Yoga Australia” ABN 99 071 308 371, and our related entities appreciate that privacy is very important.
Like many other organisations, LETA must comply with the National Privacy Principles contained in the Australian Privacy Act when dealing with personal information.
1. The information we collect
LETA will collect general information about you, such as your name, address, and contact details so LETA can contact you. We may also collect this and other types of personal information during the course of dealing with you, for example when you wish to obtain goods or services from LETA, when you register for conferences or events, and when you participate in LETA Sahaja Yoga activities or complete other forms.
The information collected may include some sensitive information (as defined by the Privacy Act), such as health information or information relevant to the services or assistance you have requested from LETA.
In the interests of security and safety, and the comfort of LETA also operates video cameras within and around some Collective premises.
Where practicable, the purpose for which we collect personal information will be made clear at the time of collection. If you do not provide us with certain information we may be unable to provide you with access to some of our venues and community events, or assistance you may request.
Any information collected from members of the public interested in follow up contact with LETA – Sahaja Yoga Australia will be maintained in a secure manner and not shared with any other parties.
When members of the public interested in follow up are contacted they always have the opportunity to unsubscribe from the service and no longer receive further advice, and their request will be automatically applied to the list of contacts.
Users can generally visit the LETA website without revealing who they are or other personal information.
LETA will not collect any personal information about visitors to the website except when they knowingly provide it.
