Protecting your personal information

Accessing and correcting your personal information

Subject to certain grounds for refusal set out in the Act, you have the right to access your readily retrievable personal information that we hold and to request a correction to your personal information. Before you exercise this right, we will need evidence to confirm that you are the individual to whom the personal information relates.

In respect of a request for correction, if we think the correction is reasonable and we are reasonably able to change the personal information, we will make the correction. If we do not make the correction, we will take reasonable steps to note on the personal information that you requested the correction.

If you want to exercise either of the above rights, email us at [email protected]. Your email should provide evidence of who you are and set out the details of your request (e.g. the personal information, or the correction, that you are requesting).

We may charge you our reasonable costs of providing to you copies of your personal information or correcting that information.

Internet use

While we take reasonable steps to maintain secure internet connections, if you provide us with personal information over the internet, the provision of that information is at your own risk.

If you follow a link on our website to another site, the owner of that site will have its own privacy policy relating to your personal information. We suggest you review that site's privacy policy before you provide personal information.

You contain full responsibility for providing accurate and appropriate information for any job offer. Listings should not include any personal details. We may forward these offers directly to other members within the appropriate demographic regions. Pay The Nanny reserves the right to remove a job offer if we deem it inappropriate.

This message will let the recipient know who sent the message; return contact can then be made by the receiver to provide further details. There is to be absolutely no advertisements of products or outside services to our members or anywhere else on the site for that matter.
