We understand that your privacy is important to you. We are committed to respecting your right to privacy and to complying with all of our privacy obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act), including the Australian Privacy Principles.
This policy explains how and when we collect, use and disclose your personal information and how you may request access to your personal information.
1. Personal information we may collect
We may collect personal information about you from a range of sources (including from you, customers, suppliers, employees, personal contacts, third parties, publicly available resources or through the ordinary course of business) and in a variety of ways (such as personal dealings, mail, telephone, email and our website).
The types of personal information we collect about you may include your name, addresses, telephone number, other contact details (including email addresses), identification details, induction records, business cards, your resume and other personal information when you apply for employment with us (including reference checks from current and former employees, any information collected during the course of the interviewing process such as interview notes and assessment results and sensitive information including membership of a professional or trade association, criminal record, visa record and health information) and details of any other interactions that you have with us. We will only collect your sensitive information (as that term is defined in the Privacy Act) with your consent or if required by law.
We will only collect sensitive information with your consent. “Sensitive information” means personal information defined as “sensitive” in the Privacy Act, such as information about sexual preference, political affiliations, religious beliefs, health information, criminal record etc.
In most cases, you will have to identify yourself when you deal with us. However, if it is appropriate and practical in the circumstances, you may be able to remain anonymous or use a pseudonym when you deal with us. If you do not provide us with your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with any of your requests.

- provide you with any goods, services or information you have requested;
- organise and conduct our business, functions, events and seminars;

- manage our relationship with you;
- assess and administer your application for employment, to communicate with you in relation to your application for employment and to monitor and review your application process;
- update our records and keep your contact details up to date; and
- respond to any enquiries you make or any complaints that you lodge with us.
3. How we may disclose your personal information
We may disclose your personal information to our related companies, government and regulatory authorities (where required or authorised by law) our professional advisers (including lawyers, business advisers and auditors) and any of our service providers and business partners, including organisations that assist us with technology and security services, including our technology service providers who have data centres located in America, Taiwan, Singapore, Finland, Belgium and Ireland and our third party web host for our careers website.
We may disclose your personal and sensitive information to police organisations, Department of Immigration and Citizenship, academic institutions, your referees and other persons or organisations you nominate or mention in your application, or any other third party to verify any personal information you have provided in respect of any application for employment with us.
