We appreciate the importance of your personal details. This policy outlines the rules we have established when dealing with the personal information we collect in order to provide our services to you. The policy is consistent with the Australian Privacy Principals (APP) Privacy Act 1988 and the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner’s APP Guidelines.
What Personal Information Do We Collect?
The personal information we collect includes your name, address, date and place of birth, telephone number, email addresses, and other information specific to our engagement; for example, tax file number, Australian Business Number, bank account details and other financial information. We use this information to provide our professional services to you.
Protection of Your Information?
We implement a variety of security measures in order to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind a secured network, and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. We take all reasonable care to ensure that all personal information we hold is secure from any unauthorised access, misuse or disclosure; however, we cannot guarantee that unauthorised access will not occur.
We may use third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
Do We Disclose the Information We Collect to Third Parties?
There are occasions when we may be requested to provide your personal information to third parties such as the Australian Taxation Office, Australian Securities Commission, your bank, or other parties in order to provide our services to you.
This is only done with your consent, unless we are required by legislation to disclose the information.
Destroying Personal Information
Any personal information we hold will be maintained in order to comply with legislative and professional requirements, after which time the information will be securely destroyed. Where the information is paper based, it will be shredded and if it is held electronically it will be deleted from our onsite, and offsite storage systems.
Third Party Links
We may provide links to third parties websites that may be of interest to you. These links have separate and independent privacy policies.
We have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these sites. None the less, we seek to protect the integrity of our site, and welcome any feedback about these sites, including if a specific link does not work.
