Privacy at the Companies
The Companies are bound by privacy principles (Principles) contained in the Commonwealth Privacy Act in the case of Australia, and the Privacy Act 1993 in the case of New Zealand. In summary the Principles describe personal information as information (or an opinion) relating to an individual that can be used to identify that individual.
How do we manage personal information?
The Companies train their employees who handle personal information to respect the confidentiality of that information and the privacy of individuals.
How do we store personal information?
The Companies are required by the Principles to safeguard the security and privacy of your information, whether you interact with us personally, by telephone, mail, over the internet or other electronic medium. This includes an obligation to take reasonable steps to protect the personal information we hold from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
The Principles also require the Companies not to store personal information longer than necessary. Where the Companies no longer require personal information that we hold, we will destroy that personal information or remove details which may identify individuals.
How do we keep personal information accurate and up-to-date?
The Companies seek to ensure that the personal information they hold is accurate and up-to-date. We realise that this information changes frequently with changes of address and other personal circumstances. We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible in order to update any personal information we hold about you. The Companies’ contact details are set out below.
Can you check what personal information about you is held by us?
You may obtain access to any personal information which the Companies hold about you, unless one of the exceptions in the Principles applies.
To make a request to access information the Companies hold about you, please contact either of the Companies in writing.
