We are totally committed to protecting your privacy.
We may be provided with personal information directly by our clients to enable us to deliver professional services or to perform due diligence checks before we agree to provide services. This information may relate to clients' employees, members or customers or it may relate to third parties (for example, the spouses and dependents of a client's employees, members or customers).
As part of providing professional services to our clients, we may also collect personal information from other sources (such as directly from individuals themselves or information that is publicly available).
The types of personal information we may collect or be provided with include, but are not limited to:
- Contact details;
- Dates of birth;
- Employment records;
- Financial records;
- Complaint details;
- Government identifiers such as driving licence, passport and visa/work permit status.
Where we are provided with personal information by a client, we take reasonable steps to ensure that the client has complied with the relevant obligations under the Privacy Act (and any other applicable data protection laws) in relation to that information. This may include, for example, the client has provided you with notice of the collection (and other matters) and has obtained any necessary consent for us to collect, use and disclose that information.
We also collect personal information (such as contact details and account details) from suppliers, contractors and third party service providers that we engage to help us operate our business.
We will never disclose or sell your personal information to third parties for advertising purposes.
You may access your personal information, or seek to have that information corrected if you believe that it is incorrect, at any time. If you wish to make any changes to your personal information, you may contact us by emailing us. It is your responsibility to ensure the information we hold about you is accurate.
