Why does Barella Cabins collect personal information?  Barella Cabins collects and holds personal information for various reasons (which we generally notify to you at the time of collection), including the following primary purposes:

How does Barella Cabins collect personal information?   Barella Cabins‘ usual practice is to collect personal information directly from you either via this Site or by some other method (such as by post or email or social media). For example, some areas of this Site may require you to submit information to enable you to benefit from the special features (such as newsletters, brochures and electronic notifications) or to participate in a particular activity (such as an offer, competition or promotion). Barella Cabins use MailChimp to provide electronic correspondence to subscribers. See our MailChimp Privacy Policy.

In addition to collecting personal information from you, sometimes Barella Cabins collects personal information from a third party if it is unreasonable or impracticable to collect the information from you directly, for example, where the information is provided to Barella Cabins or agencies acting for and on behalf of Barella Cabins (for instance, personal information contained in third party booking systems).

Does Barella Cabins collect information via passive information collection?  Barella Cabins may use cookies to assign your computer a User ID so that we can identify your computer on our server. You may configure your web browser so that you are notified in advance so your internet browser will disable cookies. In some instances cookies may collect and store personal information about you. Any personal information collected via the use of cookies will only be used by us in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Your Consent.  Barella Cabins requires you to consent specifically to any collection, use or disclosure of your personal information by Barella Cabins. Your consent may be explicit, such as in writing or verbally, or may be implied by conduct.

By using this Site, you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy. Whenever you submit personal information to Barella Cabins, you consent to: (i) the collection, use, disclosure and storage of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy; (ii) your personal information being used to improve the Site; and (iii) the receipt of emails or other communications about Barella Cabins and our activities (including information about marketing, promotional, and research purposes), along with communications about Barella Cabins related activities, functions, issues and initiatives from time-to-time.

In addition, if you provide personal information to Barella Cabins via this Site, you agree that we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We will take reasonable measures to prevent personal information from being combined with passively collected information, unless you consent otherwise.

How will Barella Cabins use the personal information you provide?   In general terms, Barella Cabins uses and discloses the personal information you provide for the specific purpose or purposes for which you have given consent and for secondary purposes for which you reasonably expect Barella Cabins to use or disclose your personal information.

Please be aware that you are free to “unsubscribe” to any publication that you receive from Barella Cabins at any time.

Does Barella Cabins disclose personal information to anyone?   Barella Cabins may disclose your personal information in a number of circumstances, for instance:(i) where you have consented to us doing so (by way of example, in providing us with your contact details, you may have consented to Barella Cabins providing those details to another group, such as an email provider); or (ii) where required or authorised by law (for instance, in response to a subpoena or other court order); or (iii) to consultants, advisers or other third parties (in Australia or overseas) where that party has been contracted to provide administrative or other services to Barella Cabins (and on the basis that that third party agrees to abide by this Privacy Policy).

Management and security of personal information.  Barella Cabins takes all reasonable precautions to safeguard your personal information from loss, misuse, interference, unauthorised access, modification or unlawful disclosure.

However, you should keep in mind that the transmission of information over the internet is not completely secure or error-free. In particular, email sent to or from this Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.

Notifiable data breaches scheme.   In the event of any loss, or unauthorised access or disclosure of your personal information that is likely to result in serious harm to you, Barella Cabins will investigate and notify the Australian Information Commissioner and you as soon as practicable, in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988.

Cross-border disclosure.   Personal information will not be disclosed by Barella Cabins to recipients outside Australia unless we reasonably believe that:

  • the information will remain subject to principles for fair handling of the information which are substantially similar to Australian privacy principles;
  • there are mechanisms that you can access to take action to enforce such principles; and
  • the information will not be collected, held, used or disclosed by the recipients of the information in a manner inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

Where Barella Cabins does disclose personal information to recipients outside Australia, the recipients are likely to be located in countries including Italy, Canada, United States of America and the United Kingdom.
