  5. Unsolicited personal information. If we receive personal information about you that we have not requested, and we determine that we could not have lawfully collected that information under the Australian Privacy Principles had we asked for it, we will destroy or de-identify the information if it is lawful and reasonable to do so.
  6. Disclosing your identity. Where lawful and practicable, we will give you the option of interacting with us anonymously or using a pseudonym.

We only use your personal information for the purpose for which it was provided to us, for related purposes or as required or permitted by law. Such purposes include: in the ordinary course of conducting our business; market research and service development; performing general administration, reporting and management functions; employment and secondment-related purposes; as part of a sale (or proposed sale) of all or part of our business; and other purposes related to or in connection with our business.
  8. Disclosing personal information. We may disclose, and you consent to us disclosing, your personal information to third parties: engaged by us to provide products or services, or to undertake functions or activities, on our behalf; that are authorised by you to receive information we hold; that are our business partners, joint venturers, partners or agents; as part of a sale (or proposed sale) of all or part of our business; such as our external advisers; where required or permitted by law.

  11. Security. We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, interference, loss and unauthorised access, modification and disclosure. Such steps include: physical security over paper-based and electronic data storage and premises; computer and network security measures, including use of firewalls, password access and secure servers; restricting access to your personal information to employees and those acting on our behalf who are authorised and on a ‘need to know’ basis; and entering into confidentiality agreements with staff and third parties. Where we no longer require your personal information, including where we are no longer required by law to keep records relating to you, we will ensure that it is de-identified or destroyed.
  12. Data quality. We take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. However, we rely on you to advise us of any changes or corrections.
