Personal information includes any information about an identified individual.
Personal information about users of this Site is collected only when knowingly and voluntarily submitted by you. When you register your interest or otherwise in the course of us providing our services to you, we may need to collect personal information which may include your name, address, telephone/mobile phone number, e-mail address, your business name, and any other information you provide to us in registering on our website or subscribing to newsletters.
Generally, we only collect this information if it is necessary to provide you with a specific product or service and you have consented to that collection. For example, we may need to collect such information to provide you with further services or to answer or forward any requests or enquiries.
It is our intention that this policy will protect your personal information from being dealt with in any way that is inconsistent with applicable privacy laws in Australia. Should you choose not to provide personal information to us, we may not be able to provide you with access to parts of this Site, or to certain content, products and services available on or from this Site.
What kinds of personal information do we collect and hold?
How do we collect personal information?
We collect most personal information directly from you. For example, your e-mail address when you sign up for a newsletter.
- The date and time of visits;
- Which pages are viewed
- Your server address
- The pages accessed and documents downloaded
- The type of browser used
We may use personally identifiable information in aggregate form to improve our services and make them more responsive to the needs of our customers. This statistical compilation and analysis of information may also be used by us or provided to others as a summary report for marketing, advertising or research purposes.
How do we use personal information?
We use your information to provide our services to you or to fulfill administrative functions associated with these services. Your information may be used to send you e-mail notifications you have requested, send you our e-mail newsletter if you have requested it (you can inform us at any time if you no longer require the newsletter), send you marketing communications relating to our business which we think may be of interest to you, and/or deal with enquiries and complaints made by you relating to our website.
We will not, without your express consent, supply your personal information to any third party for the purpose of their or any other third party’s direct marketing. Personal information is used only for the purpose for which it is submitted or for such other secondary purposes that are related to that purpose, unless we disclose other uses in this Privacy Statement or at the time of collection.
Apart from where you have consented or disclosure is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was submitted, personal information may be disclosed in special situations where we have reason to believe that doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone damaging, injuring, or interfering (intentionally or unintentionally) with our rights or property, users or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires disclosure or in connection with any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings.
We may disclose your personal information to any member of our group of companies (this means our subsidiaries), agents, contractors, sub-contractors and any member of our related entities insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this policy for the purposes of providing you with our, or our related entities, services.
Will your personal information be disclosed to overseas recipients?
Access to and Correction of Personal Information
You have a right to access most personal information we hold about you and if we deny access in some circumstances we will tell you why. To request access, please contact our Marketing Manager as set out at the end of this document. Please let us know if the personal information that we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
We take reasonable steps to protect the personal information you may transmit to us from our online products and services. We use a variety of physical and electronic security measures including restricting physical access to our offices and firewalls and secure databases to keep personal information secure from misuse, loss or unauthorized use or disclosure. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure.
