We understand the importance of protecting your right to privacy and have therefore prepared this statement to help you understand how we aim to protect the privacy of your personal information. In this document we outline what details we may keep about you and why we need these details.
When dealing with your personal information we observe our obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 and comply with the Australian Privacy Principles, as well as other state legislation. This policy sets out how we collect, use, store disclose and de-identify your personal information.
Why changes were made to Privacy Law
The Australian Law Reform Commision has more recently investigated ways of strengthening existing Laws, initiated in 2006. The Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act was passed into Law in November 2012 and changes took effect from 12 March 2014.
What personal information will we keep about you?
We collect your personal information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you.
The type of personal information we collect about you may include your name, address, date of birth, telephone number, fax number, email address, company and/or business information and other details.
Risks of using the Internet
You should note that there are security risks in transmitting information via the internet. You should assess these potential risks when deciding whether to use our on-line services. If you do not wish to transmit information via e-mail or this website, there are other ways in which you can provide this information, such as by mail or telephone.
Collection of browsing information
If you visit our site to read or download information, much of the information we do collect is statistical only (e.g., the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to our site) and not personally identifiable. We use this information about the number of visitors and their use of the sites in aggregate form to make our site more useful and attractive to you.
Why do we need your personal information?
The personal information you provide to us will be retained only for as long as necessary to meet the purpose for which the information was collected or as required by law. We do not share personal information with third parties except as necessary to carry out our business or as required by law or other legal processes. We never sell your personal information.
How can you access and correct your personal information?
Subject to the exceptions set out in the Privacy Act, you may seek access to and correction of the personal information which we hold about you by contacting us. We will require you to verify your identity and to specify what information you require. The Privacy Act gives limited circumstances in which some or all access to this information may be denied. Occasionally we may need to refuse your request to access information, for example, where granting your access may infringe upon someone else’s privacy.
We will not charge a fee for your access request.
Credit card information
Credit card details provided either electronically or over the telephone will never be kept on file. Once the charge has been processed the credit card details are destroyed.
