Once we receive personal information, we also use reasonable endeavours to ensure its security on our systems. We require all our employees and contractors who provide services to us related to our information systems to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by us, however, we are not responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information.
Do we transfer personal information outside of Australia?
In short, yes, we may. The purposes for which we may transfer personal data outside of Australia are:
- for secure storage, back-up and retrieval; or
- to provide you with the goods or services you have requested from us (we operate in Australia, North America, South America and India at the moment, but may operate in other countries in the future).
Wherever we transfer personal data overseas, we will strive to ensure recipients of that personal information maintain it in accordance with Australian privacy laws. However, in providing us with personal information, you consent to the transfer of such personal information outside of Australia for these purposes.
How long do we keep personal information?
We regularly maintain personal information, and strive to de-identify information as soon as we become aware that it is no longer required. We do this through periodic reviews of the personal information we hold or upon notice from you that you no longer require our services.
