WHO WE ARE


At Home In The World Pty Ltd ABN 89651450323 is a family owned and operated business, conceived and managed by the Kaponay Family. We provide families around the world with personal development services delivered through our Family Retreats Series’ and related online websites and services.


OUR PERSONAL VALUES AND PRIVACY


As a family, we value our own privacy to the highest degree. Personal Privacy is perhaps today the most eroded form of personal freedom, with so many companies, organisations and governments actively abusing the way they treat people’s personal information. This is why, as a business and as the individuals who run said business, we felt it vital that we create a company privacy policy that is both inline with our own personal values, while at the same time, finding the balance of protecting the needs of our business, along with you, our client. To achieve this, we understand that it is necessary for you to have transparency and ease of access to information on how we receive, treat, manage and store your personal information safely. To all of us at At Home In The World, this is just as essential a part of our business as is the quality of services that we provide your family through our family retreats and other related services. We are an Australian organisation with clients from all around the world. This is why we have spent considerable time researching the world’s foremost standards on protecting privacy and as such, have aimed to meet or where possible, exceed these standards with relation to protecting your privacy.
