You can also deal with us anonymously or under an assumed name where it is lawful and practicable to do so.
This policy uses the definition of “personal Information” which is provided in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
We request that if you are under 18 years of age, you do not submit any personal information to us without the express consent and participation of your parent or guardian.
WHAT WE COLLECT
The type of information we collect includes names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, profession or occupation, bank details, contact preferences, personal financial details (e.g. salary), educational and employment background, job interest data, credit card details (if you buy products or services from us) and other contact details. We also collect resumes and work history details from potential employees. We do not normally collect or store ‘sensitive information’, as defined in the Privacy Act 1988 (e.g. information about ethnic origin, religious beliefs or health). However, where we are required to and it is practicable to do so, we will seek your consent before collecting your sensitive information and inform you of the purpose at the same time.
HOW WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Generally, we collect an individual’s personal information from that individual. We may collect personal information in connection to, but not limited to:

However, occasionally we may also collect personal information from someone other than the individual. For example, we may collect your information from an existing customer, when they tell us that you may be interested in our products or services, or from companies with whom you work, other organisations with whom you have dealings, information service providers or from publicly maintained records.
HOW WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Access to personal information is limited to those of our personnel who specifically need it to carry out their business responsibilities.

We may be required, as a result of contractual or statutory obligations, to disclose personal information we collect to auditors, who conduct audits of our business and services, or to government agencies, like the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority.

However, where: the access impacts on the privacy of others; the request for access is frivolous or vexatious; there are existing or anticipated legal proceedings; or such access can be denied under law or by a law enforcement agency, we may deny your request for access.
