The Skin Manifesto is committed to safeguarding personal privacy. We recognise that individuals have a right to control how their personal information is collected and used. Providing personal information is an act of trust, and it is taken seriously. Unless given consent to do otherwise, either verbally or written, The Skin Manifesto may only collect and use personal information as set out below.
Collecting Personal Information
The Skin Manifesto will not collect any personal information about an individual without their consent. The only personal information collected is what is requested or provided voluntarily by a client or prospective client.
We collect personal information primarily to enable us to provide clients with our services. The Skin Manifesto may also use the information for marketing to you, or others if it is non-identifiable information, or for any other purpose permitted under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
If you are not an existing client, we may ask you questions regarding your medical and/or treatment history in order to better provide you with information regarding services and treatments we offer; however in certain situations we may only deal with individuals who have identified themselves to us.
When a treatment or product is purchased, personal information will be requested in order to provide you the requested treatment or product, provide you updated information, and advise you of other The Skin Manifesto treatment and products which may be of interest. You are not obligated to provide personal information however not doing so may result in The Skin Manifesto being unable to provide services or products to you.
Personal information is collected directly from clients or potential future clients when they personally complete and submit a client card and consent form, or an online booking form or marketing form on our website, to become a client of The Skin Manifesto. This can be done in person at our clinic or on our website, and sometimes on social media platforms, depending on the circumstance, but only with the voluntary consent of the individual.
