In this policy, personal information and sensitive information have the same meanings as under the Privacy Act.

This policy sets out our commitments to you about personal information and sensitive information we may hold about you.

How do we collect and hold information about you?
We will generally collect information about you (whether personal information or sensitive information) and other information directly from you but also from others who provide the information to us in person, via phone or via our website(s) or social media platforms (including via cookies).

What information about you do we collect and hold?
Personal information

The types of personal information we collect about you will be directly related to the specific purpose for which it has been collected. How much personal information you choose to disclose to us is completely up to you but limited information may mean we are unable to process your request or provide you with the relevant product or service.

What will we do with information we hold about you?
Storage and security of information
We will take reasonable steps to protect your information and to protect information from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, use, modification, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.  This includes complying with the Payment Card Information Data Security Standard, which covers the security of payment card information.

You should keep in mind that the transmission of information over the internet (including by email) is not completely secure or error-free and you should take care in deciding what information you send to us via the internet.

Use and disclosure of information

Personal Information

We will only use and disclose your personal information for the purposes for which you provide it or a related secondary purpose which you would reasonably expect (including as stated in our specific collection statements).  This includes, for example:

·         providing the products and/or services you have requested from us;

We may disclose your personal information to other companies or people that we have your consent to share the information with, and contractors and third party service providers that we engage in the ordinary course of our business where necessary to enable us to provide you with products and/or services.  We do not, generally, disclose your personal information to recipients outside of Australia.  If we do so, for example, where a cloud service provider creates a backup of our data and stores that backup overseas, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is handled by any overseas recipients in accordance with the Privacy Act and our instructions for the purposes described above.  Any such backups of the data will be held in the United States of America, Singapore or within the European Economic Area. By providing us with your personal information, you consent to this disclosure of your personal information.

We, or third parties engaged to act on our behalf, may contact you from time to time with marketing material about our products or services, where you have consented to this or where we believe you would reasonably expect us to do so. You may opt out of receiving this material at any time by taking the steps in any “unsubscribe” instructions we send to you or by contacting our Privacy Officer.

Sensitive information

We will never disclose your sensitive information unless we have your consent to do so.

Web information

This information will be used only for statistical and administrative purposes.

Retention and destruction of personal and sensitive information
We will destroy or de-identify your personal and sensitive information as soon as practicable once it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. However, we may be required by law to retain your personal information after your relationship with us has expired.  We will take reasonable steps and use appropriate techniques and processes in destroying information.
