Personal information means any information or opinion about you from which your identity is apparent or can reasonably be established.
We only collect personal information from you which is necessary for conducting our business, providing our services to you and meeting our legal obligations.
We take reasonable steps to ensure that you know why we are collecting your personal information, what we use it for, to whom we disclose it and how you can access it to ensure its accuracy.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we collect personal information about you directly from you. We may collect personal information about you when you make enquiries of us in person, via telephone, facsimile, e-mail, post or via an online form on our web site. This is to enable us to respond to your query, correspond with you or to provide you with our services. The type of personal information that we collect depends on the nature of your dealings with us.
The personal information we collect from you may include:
You have the option of whether to provide personal information or to remain anonymous. If you prefer that we not collect your personal information, please do not submit or provide it. Please note that we may not be able to fully provide our services to you or respond to you if you choose not to provide personal information.
We take reasonable steps to protect the personal information which we hold from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
To protect your personal information, we have implemented physical and electronic security measures. Locks and security systems secure our premises and data storage facilities. Our computer systems can only be accessed by authorised users who have been issued specific user identifiers and passwords.
We take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your personal information if it is no longer needed by us. We have in place systems for destroying or de-identifying personal information that is no longer required, such as shredding of paper documents that contain such information.
