This Privacy Policy sets out our policies on the management of personal information including how we collect personal information, the purposes for which we use this information, and to whom this information is disclosed.

This Privacy Policy applies to all persons who interact with us, including our advertisers, sponsors and persons who visit or use our website and other e-commerce technology including applications (apps) and mobile telephone numbers (“Platforms”), and any other person who use our services.

2. What personal information do we collect?

In this Privacy Policy, “personal information” has the meaning set out in the Privacy Act. Essentially, personal information is information or an opinion about an individual who is reasonably identifiable.

The amount and type of personal information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction.

We do not generally require you to disclose any sensitive information (e.g. details of race, religious belief, sexual orientation or membership of a trade union) to us. If you do provide us with sensitive information for any reason, you consent to us collecting that information and using and disclosing that information for the purpose for which you disclosed it to us and as permitted by the Privacy Act and other relevant laws.

If you are a participant in a survey that we conduct, generally you provide us information on an anonymous basis, and you cannot be reasonably identified (meaning that the information you provide us is not “personal information”). If for some reason we do collect personal information from you in a survey, then we will (depending on the circumstance) de-identify that personal information or collect, use and disclose that information in accordance with this Policy.

If you email or telephone us or otherwise interact with us, we may collect contact details including your name, address, email address, phone numbers and your date of birth/age. We may also collect answers you provide to questions we ask and other information in relation to your dealings with us.

If you apply for employment with us or are engaged as an independent individual contractor, we may also collect information relevant to your engagement with us including qualifications, work history, resume, reference information from your nominated referees, bank details, feedback from supervisors and training records.
