Protecting your personal information is important.
AS4AK Ltd respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your privacy. At AS4AK Ltd, we understand the importance you attach to information that identifies you (your "personal information") and we want to help you protect it.
We are bound by, and committed to supporting, the National Privacy Principles (NPPs) set out in the Privacy Amendment (Private Section) Act 2000.
The information set out below provides an overview of how we will protect your privacy.
What personal information we collect about you
In the course of our activities, we collect and hold personal information about you. Your personal information is collected for the purpose of providing you with the service(s) you have requested. The nature of personal information we collect from you will depend on what you have provided us with. Generally the type of personal information we collect includes your name, your mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, marital status, your partner's name .
We collect most personal information about you, directly from you. We will only collect personal information from you that is necessary for one or more of our functions and activities. We will only collect personal information from you by lawful and fair means, without being unreasonably intrusive, such as subscribing to our newsletters, visit our website, deal with us over the telephone, send us a letter, have contact with us personally etc...
At or before the time we collect personal information from you, we will take reasonable steps to inform you why we are collecting that personal information, who else we might disclose that personal information to and what will happen if you do not provide personal information to us.
Wherever it is lawful and practicable, we will give you the option of not identifying yourself or not providing personal information when dealing with us. However, failure to provide full and complete information we request may mean that we are unable to provide you with the services you have requested completely and properly.
Once we hold your personal information we will take reasonable steps to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. We will de-identify and destroy the personal information we hold about you once our legal obligations cease.
What about sensitive personal information?
By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal information incidentally, you consent to us using the information subject to applicable laws.
How we use your personal information
We will only use the information you provided for the purpose of providing you with the service(s) you have requested. Your personal information will only be used for the main purpose of collection, except where you consent to us using that personal information for another purpose, where the other purpose is related to the main purpose and you would reasonably expect us to use the personal information for that other purpose, or where it is permitted or required by law, or we reasonably believe it is necessary on health and public safety grounds to use the personal information for another purpose.
From time to time, we may also use your contact details for marketing communications activities. We respect your choice to opt out of these activities. Should you decide you do not wish to receive marketing or promotional material from us at any time, please let us know by sending us an e-mail at (no spam please) or write to us at P O BOX 7314, Hutt Street Adelaide SA 5000
Will we share your personal information to outside parties?
We will not disclose your personal information unless the disclosure:
•is required, or allowed under law, or in connection with legal proceedings;
•has your consent (expressly or implied); or
•is to organisations with whom we have a business relationship who are bound by strict confidentiality.
For example, those authorised by us to provide limited financial, administrative and other services on behalf of us. We will only provide these organisations the information they need to deliver the service. You agree that not all recipients of your personal information may have privacy policies equivalent to AS4AK Ltd's and you consent to the disclosure of your personal information for those purposes.
Access to your personal information
You can request us to provide you with access to personal information we hold about you. We may allow in inspection of your personal information in person, or provide copies or a summary of relevant documents, depending on what is the most appropriate in the circumstances. Any charge we make for providing access will be reasonable.
Your request to access your personal information will be dealt with in a reasonable time. Note that we need not provide access to personal information if a request is frivolous, or where to provide access would pose a threat to health or public safety, unreasonable interference with another person's privacy, or be a breach of the law. If we refuse access, we will provide you with reasons for doing so.
To enable us to keep our records properly, please notify us if you believe that any information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that it is corrected. You can notify us by sending us an e-mail to (no spam please) or writing to us at P O BOX 7314, Hutt Street Adelaide SA 5000or calling us on (08) 8232 1334 and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that it is corrected.
