Become a Rebel Ringer

Dear Rebels, we’re grateful you’re here. Signing this agreement is the first step to becoming a Rebel Ringer. Once you have signed the form you will receive an email that outlines the next few steps you need to take to be onboarded to CallHub - the platform we use to manage calls to rebels. Once again, much appreciation for taking this step to be part of building an interconnected web of rebel conversation that will fuel the rebellion.

Adhering to a set of principles, for how we handle data, will ensure we build trust between ourselves and other organisations.

As a volunteer, you’ll both provide and be privy to confidential or sensitive information, including individuals’ personally identifiable data (i.e. name, telephone number and email).

It is important you keep that information secure and confidential and only use it for the purpose for which it was provided, with the consent of the individual.

Extinction Rebellion Australia – Data Processing Agreement

While volunteering with Extinction Rebellion (XR) you may be given access to information of a confidential nature. This can include personally identifying information, phone conversations, employment information, personal financial information, documents or contracts, and more. XR has a responsibility to ensure individuals and other organisations can trust us, and as such we require that you read the following agreement, and confirm that you are clear on how to comply with our guidelines

In order to be granted access to personal information stored by XR, I agree to the following:

  • I accept that in accessing and managing data for XR, I am concurrently acting on behalf of XR, and on behalf of myself.

  • I understand that complying with the Australian Privacy Act 1988 when storing, processing, and transferring personal information is of vital importance to the security of XR.

  • I will process personal information only for explicit XR purposes, as relevant to my specific role within the organisation, as specified on this document.

  • I will not store any personal information on my personal devices. I will delete phone numbers from my personal phone and never use my personal email account without the consent of the individual being contacted.

  • I will not share the information that I have access to with anybody, either internal or external to XR. If another volunteer needs access to personal information, I will point them in the direction of this Data Processing Agreement.

  • I will ask a colleague or the XR Legal Support team for advice if I am unclear on how to comply with best practice under the Australian Privacy Act 1988. If uncertain, I will err on the side of caution in processing this data.

  • I will respect and process any request from an individual to have their data removed from the XR database.

  • I understand that breaches of this policy could incur severe financial penalties for XR.

  • I understand that if I do not comply with this agreement, I may be asked to step down from my role within XR.

  • I understand that this duty of confidentiality is indefinite, and continues after my involvement with XR has finished.
