If you post information to certain public parts of our Website, apps or to our social media pages, you acknowledge that such information may be available to be viewed by the public. You should use discretion in deciding what information you upload to such sites.
7. Overseas transfers of personal information
Some of the third parties to whom we disclose personal information may be located outside Australia. The countries in which such third party recipients are located depend on the circumstances. Whenever we transfer your personal information outside of Australia, we will do so in accordance with the requirements of applicable privacy and data protection laws.
From time to time we may also engage an overseas recipient to provide services to us, such as cloud-based storage solutions. Please note that the use of overseas service providers to store personal information will not always involve a disclosure of personal information to that overseas provider.
By providing your personal information to us, you consent to us disclosing your personal information to any such overseas recipients for purposes necessary or useful in the course of operating our business, and agree that APP 8.1 will not apply to such disclosures.

8. Marketing, advertising and special offers
Like most businesses, marketing and advertising is important to our continued success. We therefore like to stay in touch with customers and let them know about new offers and opportunities.
We may provide you with information about products, services, offers and promotions either from us or from third parties which may be of interest to you, where:
you have consented to us doing so; or
it is otherwise permitted by law.
Direct marketing can be delivered by a range of methods including mail, telephone, email, SMS or instant messaging / direct messaging (including on social media platforms such as Facebook Messenger and Instagram).
You can unsubscribe from our direct marketing or change your preferences or by contacting us (see section 16 below).
Like many organisations, we use e-mail analytics to track and measure the success of our e-mail newsletters and other e-mail campaigns.
We use various technologies (such as tracking pixels) to collect information such as: which of our emails you have opened, which links you have clicked, which email client you are using, whether you opened our e-mail on a computer or mobile device, and the geolocation of your IP address. We use this data to analyse and improve the performance of our e-mail campaigns.
We may also collect and use information about you for the purposes of online targeted advertising services that help our ads to reach you (and other people who may be interested in our products and services) on websites, apps and social media platforms across the Internet. These online targeted advertising services are operated by third party vendors such as Meta (which operates Facebook and Instagram).
Other services require us to use limited amounts of your personal information. For example, we may include your information in a customer list that we provide to selected online advertising service providers so that we can conduct audience-based advertising. This allows us to show our ads to you (if you also use those platforms) and to other users of those platforms who share similar characteristics with you. The customer list is usually hashed (to improve security and confidentiality) before it’s processed by the service provider to target and serve our ads.
The data that is collected through these cookies and other tracking technologies, or provided by us, may be combined with other data (supplied by our advertising service provider, or third parties) to improve the targeting and serving of ads.
Our online advertising service providers also help us by measuring the effectiveness of our ad campaigns (e.g. conversion tracking) and providing us with analytics data that we use to inform and optimise our ad campaigns. These analytics are based on data that may be collected through cookies and other tracking technologies. The analytics data we receive is generally aggregated and non-identifying.
You can also:
Opt-out of certain online targeted advertising networks directly by visiting:
view the relevant social media platform's website to learn more about how they collect and use your information and adjust your preferences regarding the types of advertising you are shown.
We collect information in relation to employees as part of their application and during the course of their employment, either from them or in some cases from third parties such as recruitment agencies, referees, government bodies (e.g. police checks, if required) and academic and professional bodies (e.g. to validate details and currency of qualifications). Such information may include contact details, qualifications, resume, current and former employment details, pay rate and salary, bank details, feedback from supervisors, training records and logs of your usage of our equipment (e.g. phones, computers and vehicles).
Under the Privacy Act, personal information about a current or former employee may be held, used or disclosed in any way that is directly connected to the employment relationship. We handle employee information in accordance with legal requirements and our applicable policies in force from time to time.
Our Website may contain links to other websites operated by third parties. We make no representations or warranties in relation to privacy practices of any third party website and we are not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of any third party website. Third party websites are responsible for informing you about their own privacy practices and procedures.
12. Security and protection of personal information
We will take reasonable steps to keep any personal information we hold secure.

We may seek to recover from you reasonable costs incurred for providing you with access to the personal information we hold about you.
We are not obliged to correct any of your personal information if we do not agree that it requires correction and may refuse to do so. If we refuse a correction request, we will provide you with a written notice stating our reasons for refusing.
We will respond to all requests for access to or correction of personal information within a reasonable time.
