This Privacy Statement explains in general terms how Australian Portable Buildings protects the privacy of your personal information under the National Privacy Principles. It will apply to any personal information you provide to us in the course of your dealings with us.
Your Personal Information
The types of personal information that we collect from you will depend on the circumstances of collection and on the type of service you request from us. Personal information held by Australian Portable Buildings may include your name, date of birth, address (residential and business), telephone/mobile phone numbers, fax number, email address, occupation, driver’s license number and credit references.
As we are required by law to obtain your consent to the collection of "sensitive information" we will assume that you have consented to the collection of all information which is provided to us for use in accordance with this Statement, unless you tell us otherwise.
Collection of Personal Information
Australian Portable Buildings collects personal information in a number of ways, including:
• Directly from you by telephone or in person;
• In documents such as application forms, website enquiry forms and questionnaires;
• From third parties such as credit reporting agencies;
• From publicly available sources of information.
How We Use Your Personal Information
We generally collect your personal information for the following purposes:
• Provide the goods and services you require;
• Administer and manage those goods and services, including charging, account billing and collecting debts;
• Conduct appropriate checks for credit worthiness;
• To conduct marketing activities and market research.
Disclosure of personal information to third parties
We may disclose your personal information to third parties, for example, to our contractors to whom we contract out certain construction and installation services, to materials suppliers and to transport contractors. In these situations, we will prohibit the third party contractor from using personal information about you except for the specific purpose for which we supply it.
We may also provide information to government and regulatory authorities as required to obtain permits and consents.
Other than the above, we will not disclose your personal information without your consent unless disclosure is either necessary to prevent a threat to life or health, authorised or required by law, reasonably necessary to enforce the law or necessary to investigate a suspected unlawful activity.
Help Us to Ensure We Hold Accurate Information
We will take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is accurate, complete, and up-to-date whenever we collect or use it. However, the accuracy of that information depends to a large extent on the information you provide. If the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date please contact us and we will take reasonable steps to correct this information.
You Can Access Your Personal Information
We will, on request, provide you with access to the information we hold about you, including for the purpose of correcting or updating that information, unless there is an exception under the National Privacy Principles.
We may recover from you our reasonable costs of supplying you with access to this information.
