We collect personal information, including when you register with us, for a number of purposes, including enabling you to take full advantage of our website and services. For example, you may voluntarily submit personal information so that we can provide you with further information or respond to your requests or enquiries.
Your personal information may be used for the purposes for which it was submitted or collected, or for a related purpose. We may also use your personal information in connection with the general management of our website and in connection with providing our services.
Your personal information may also be used for ensuring business continuity, maintaining business records and strategic planning and management. We may also use your personal information when complying with legal and regulatory requirements, complying with audits, defending or pursuing litigation and our other record keeping and reporting obligations.
You are entitled to access the personal information we hold about you. You can obtain further information on how to access your personal information from us on request, by contacting us.
We will take steps which are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that your personal information is accurate, up to date and complete, and is not misleading or irrelevant. We regularly review the personal information we hold. However, you must also update us if any of your personal details change.
If you want to review (and, if necessary, request the correction of) personal information that we may have collected or hold, or if you want to complain about alleged breaches of our privacy obligations, please contact us. We will respond to your requests to access and to correct your personal information as soon as practicable (but in any case within a reasonable period).
In some circumstances, we may refuse to correct your personal information, in which case we will notify you in writing of the reasons for our refusal and the process for taking your request further. In these circumstances, you can ask us to place with the information a statement that you have informed us that the information is inaccurate, incomplete, out of date, irrelevant or misleading and we will take such steps as are reasonable under the circumstances to associate the statement with your information.
When you visit our Website, we may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type through the use of “cookies”, “applets” or similar devices or programs. This aggregated, de-personalised information assists us to customise your experience of our website, and to analyse usage.
If you contact us (for example, if you submit a request or comment to us, enter any competition, or choose to register or create an account with us), we may collect all personal information you provide for that purpose or for a related purpose. We may also collect your personal information when you post material to our site or to any of our social media profiles.
We will only disclose your personal information (including to trusted third parties) for the purposes for which it was primarily collected or for a related purpose. In some cases we may only disclose information with your consent. We may also share your personal information with government agencies where we are requested or required to do so.
We will use best endeavours to put arrangements and requirements in place to reasonably provide an adequate level of protection, so that third parties who receive your personal information will also protect its security and confidentiality.
We will take reasonable and appropriate steps to keep your personal information we host or collect secure. For example, we will, where reasonable, implement appropriate technical safeguards in relation to your personal information such as password protection, controlled access and data encryption.
Unfortunately the transmission of information via the internet (by way of an email or otherwise) is never completely secure and while we will take reasonable measures to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to or from our Website, and any transmission is at your own risk.
We may use external organisations from time to time to manage our IT systems and processes. Some of these organisations may be based overseas (for example, the United States and European Union). Your personal information will be shared with those organisations only to the extent necessary in connection with our services.
We may from time to time transfer your personal information overseas to a country that is not subject to a comparable privacy scheme, or to an organisation that does not implement privacy protections at least comparable to the obligations that apply in Australia, and you consent to that transfer by continuing to use the website.
