Privacy Statement

This website is committed to complying with the privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000, which commences in December 2001, and the privacy provisions of all applicable legislation. This privacy policy covers all personal information we hold, that is, information, or an opinion, about an individual, whose identity is apparent, or can be reasonably ascertained, from that information or opinion. This includes information we have collected over the internet. The policy also covers personal information that we have sourced from third parties.

Collecting information

This website and its owners will only collect information that is necessary for one or more of our functions or activities.

We will advise individuals of the purposes for which their personal information is collected, and of those third parties to whom the information is usually disclosed.

If we collect sensitive information (as defined under the Act), we will treat it with the utmost security and confidentiality. We will ensure that it is not collected for any purposes, other than those for which we have obtained the individual’s consent, unless the law requires otherwise, or other exceptional circumstances prevail as described under the Act.

Where an individual chooses not to provide requested information, we will advise that individual of what impact this non-disclosure may have. For example, withholding certain information may limit our ability to market relevant offers or services to individuals.

Disclosing personal information

We will only disclose personal information in accordance with the privacy Act.

This means that personal information may be disclosed:

  • for the purposes for which we have advised that we are collecting it, and for related purposes that the individual would reasonably expect, where we have the consent of the individual to do so,
  • as required by law, or
  • under other circumstances where permitted under the Act.
