privacy policy

At The Wright Nanny Agency, we are committed to protecting your privacy. When you deal with us either as a result of a direct approach or in response to an advertisement, you are doing so with the knowledge that we will only use your personal information for the purposes of placing you in employment, servicing your child care requirements or supplying you with our retail products.

Our job advertisements describe the general nature of a position. Prior to referring you to any of our clients we will provide further details of any relevant positions.

If employment is gained through The Wright Nanny Agency and that employment is a temporary contract for any of our clients, your personal information becomes part of our agency records. As your recruitment agency, we are more than prepared to answer any questions you may have with respect to your records.

The Wright Nanny Agency out sources functions such as management of its website and databases to external contractors. These contractors have made legally enforceable agreements with The Wright Nanny Agency to protect your personal information.

What Information Do We Collect? How Do We Use It?
Personal information means information or an opinion, concerning you and your employment history. Personal information includes your contact details, references, opinions about your work experience or performance, results of occupational or psychological testing and any other information obtained by The Wright Nanny agency in seeking to place you in appropriate employment.

Personal information may include sensitive information, which may include information or opinion about any criminal records or health issues. We generally do not seek to collect such sensitive information although sometimes it may be important to a particular position. Such sensitive information in most cases may only be collected and disclosed with your consent or if required by law.

When you order from our online retail facility, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit-card number and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your orders and to notify you of your order status.

You may voluntarily sign up to be informed about certain offers, news or employment opportunities. For this service we need only an e-mail address, which we use to send the information you requested.

Customer traffic patterns and site usage are monitored to help us develop the design and layout of the store.

How we collect your personal information:

We obtain most of our information from you directly such as:

  • When you submit an application or fill out our forms,
  • During an interview,
  • Each time we have contact with you, and
  • We may ask to collect particular personal information about you.

If we have not already done so, when or before we collect information, we will take reasonable steps to inform you of:

  • The purpose for which the information is collected,
  • Where applicable, any law requiring information to be collected, and
  • The main consequences if all or part of the information is not provided.

We may approach your referees, former employers, colleagues, professional or representative organisations and employment or labour hire agencies. Your personal information may be collected from the results of medical, competency and psychological testing, performance appraisals, records of workplace injuries or workplace accidents in which you are involved, certificates of educational qualifications and reports from insurance or criminal investigations.

How Does The Wright Nanny Protect Customer Information?
The Wright Nanny is dedicated to ensure that private information such as personal particulars or credit card details are stored and destroyed in a manner which protects the information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, unauthorised modification, and unauthorised disclosure.

The only reason Credit Card details are requested by The Wright Nanny Agency outside of the secure shopping cart environment within  it's website is to pay for placement fee's for services performed by The Wright Nanny Agency child care contractors. The only accepted medium for transfer of this information is by facsimile.

When The Wright Nanny Agency collects credit card details via facsimile, the facsimile is placed in a secure location and protected from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modifications and disclosure. This is ensured by storing the document in a secure and protected manner such as locked filing cabinets and not on any of The Wright Nanny networked computers.

Credit Card details are required to be stored onsite for twelve (12) months for archive purposes. After twelve (12) months, the documents containing credit card details will be destroyed in a secure manner. Examples of destruction in a secure manner include shredding, pulping or disintegration of paper files, fire or contracting an authorised disposal company for secure disposal.

Personal Information supplied in hard copy including any notes taken by The Wright Nanny Agency staff on the applicant during registration or application are stored in a secure and protected manner such as locked filing cabinets. Electronic correspondence such as an applicants resume, provided to The Wright Nanny Agency during the registration or application process is stored on a hard drive protected by a commercial firewall product.
