We will collect personal information about you in a variety of ways, including:

• if you provide your information by telephone, facsimile, email or post;

• if you provide services to us or on our behalf; and/or

• if you contact us via email or submit your information through a customer order form or one of our websites.

If it is reasonable and practical do so, we will collect personal information about you only from you. In the course of operating our business, however, we may collect personal information from third parties such as suppliers, recruitment agencies, contractors and business partners. 

If we collect personal information about you from a third party we will, where appropriate, request that the third party inform you that we are holding such information, how we will use and disclose it, and that you may contact us to gain access to and correct and update the information. 

When we collect personal information from you, we will take reasonable steps to notify you or ensure you are aware of:

• the entity which is collecting your personal information, and their contact details;

• that we have collected your personal information, and whether that collection is required or authorised by law;

• the purposes of collection;

• the consequences if personal information is not collected (such as if this will affect our ability to provide products or services to you);

• our usual disclosures of personal information of the kind collected;

• information about this Privacy Policy; and

• whether we are likely to disclose personal information to overseas recipients, and if practicable, the relevant countries in which they are located.

Some of the above information is included in this Privacy Policy.

How do we hold personal information?

We will hold personal information as either secure physical records, electronically on our intranet system, in cloud storage, and in some cases, records on third party servers, which may be located overseas.

We take active steps to hold all hard copy and electronic records of personal information in a secure manner to ensure that they are protected from misuse, interference and loss, and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. 

We will destroy or de-identify personal information once it is no longer needed for a valid purpose or required to be kept by law.

How can you access and correct your personal information?

You have a right to request access to your personal information and to request its correction if it is out of date or incorrect.

We will respond to all requests for access to or correction of personal information within a reasonable time.

Please note there may be circumstances in which we are not able to provide you with access to your information, such as where the requested access will have an unreasonable impact upon the privacy of others or where we are required by law to withhold the information. If we are unable to provide you with access to your information, or make the amendments which you have requested, we will provide you with reasons for this decision.
