Collection and Type of Information Collected
The type of personal information collected by the Developer about a person depends on the type of dealings that the person has with the Developer. In most circumstances, the Developer collects personal information directly from the person to whom the information relates. The Developer does not normally collect sensitive information as defined under the Privacy Act, such as information relating to health, religious or political beliefs, unless a person provides it to the Developer for a specific purpose.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Generally, the Developer uses or discloses the personal information it collects only for the purpose which was specifically or reasonably apparent at the time that the information was collected and for any purpose ancillary or consequential to the primary purpose of collection such as obtaining finance or professional advice and accurate file management. To this end the Developer may use the personal information it holds for the purposes of research and future product development. The Developer may send marketing material to its customers, either by post or electronically, unless a person has advised the Developer in writing that they do not wish to receive such information. The Developer may also provide the personal information to any third party:
If required by law; who is a purchaser, potential purchaser, tenant or prospective tenant of all or part of the Development; who is a purchaser or potential purchaser of the Developer’s business; and who is an agent or consultant of the Developer, for the purposes of marketing the Development to potential purchasers and potential tenants.
The Developer will not sell personal information to other companies. If the Developer wishes to use or disclose the personal information in other circumstances, it will first obtain the consent of the person to whom it relates.
Storage of Information
The Developer endeavours to secure all personal information it holds, and to keep that information accurate and up to date. The Developer requires that all employees and consultants to whom it discloses personal information respect the confidentiality of that personal information at all times. The Developer will retain the personal information as long as necessary, subject to the Developer’s legal obligations to store certain information or unless otherwise stated in this policy. The Developer will take all reasonable steps to comply with a person’s request to delete or destroy their personal information held by the Developer, unless the Developer is compelled by law to retain it, it is required to solve certain disputes or for auditing purposes.
A person may request at any time that a copy of any personal information held by the Developer is provided and may advise the Developer of any corrections necessary.
