We take privacy seriously. In December 2000, the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 (the Amendment Act) was passed by Federal Parliament. The new Act came into effect for most organisations covered by the Privacy Act on 21 December 2001. There are 10 National Privacy Principles:
- Use and disclosure
- Data quality
- Data security
- Access and correction
- Transborder data flows
- Sensitive information
We currently retain and will, from time to time, collect information from our customers and other groups and individuals. This information is collected and used primarily to provide information in the form of newsletters, faxes, flyers, emails and other material.
Information that is retained by us is updated upon receipt of notification of changes and is protected from distribution outside the Business, except with the permission of each relevant company or individual.
Wherever possible, we will offer companies and individuals the option of not identifying them in any transactions where information is collected or retained.
Information will not be provided to foreign countries unless an express authority is received by the relevant member, company of individual or paragraphs a) to f) of Principle 9 of the National Privacy Principles applies.
Sensitive information will not be collected about individuals unless we are provided with an express authority, or paragraphs clauses 10.1 to 10.3 and all-inclusive paragraphs of Principle 10 of the National Privacy Principles apply.
Our designated Privacy Officer is Stephen Milne. If you wish to view the information we hold on file about you or require changes or to have your information deleted, please contact Stephen by phone at +61 7 5501 0014 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
