It may also include details of your visits to our websites including but not limited to traffic data, location data and web logs.
If the information we collect personally identifies you, or you are reasonably identifiable from it, the information will be considered Personal Information.

We collect your Personal Information directly from you unless it is unreasonable or impracticable to do so. When collecting Personal Information from you, we may collect it:

We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you, providing information to our clients and marketing. We may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure.
You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing or clicking on appropriate links.
What happens if you don’t give us your Personal Information?

- Provide you with information about our activities and services that you may be interested in;
- Tailor the content of our website to your preferences; or

Sensitive information is defined in the Privacy Act to include information or opinion about such things as an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a trade union or other professional body, criminal record or health information.
Sensitive information will only be used by us:
- For the primary purpose for which it was obtained;
- For a secondary purpose that is directly related to the primary purpose;
- With your consent; or
- Where required or authorised by law.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your Personal Information only from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties. In such cases, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.

Security of Personal Information
We have security procedures in place to protect the Personal Information we hold from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We may hold your information in either electronic or hard copy form.
As our website is linked to the internet, and the internet is inherently insecure, we cannot provide any assurance regarding the security of transmission of information you communicate to us online.
We also cannot guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted whilst being transmitted over the internet. Accordingly, any Personal Information or other information which you transmit to us online is transmitted at your own risk.
When your Personal Information is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was obtained, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your Personal Information. However, most of the Personal Information is or will be stored in client files which will be kept by us for a minimum of 7 years.
Access to this Personal Information is restricted to authorised employees who may require the information in order to perform their duties.
Access to your Personal Information
We will provide you with access to the Personal Information we hold about you. You may request access to any of the Personal Information we hold about you at any time.
There may be situations where we are not required to provide you with access to your Personal Information, for example, if the information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings, if your request is vexatious or if granting access would breach confidentiality or privacy of others.
An explanation will be provided to you if we deny you access to the Personal Information we hold about you.
Where we hold information that you are entitled to access, we will endeavour to provide you with suitable means of accessing the data, for example by posting or emailing it to you. In order to protect your Personal Information, we may require identification from you before releasing the requested information.
Updating your Personal Information
It is important to us that the Personal Information we hold about you is accurate and up to date. During the course of our relationship with you we may ask you to inform us if any of your Personal Information has changed.
If you wish to make any changes to your Personal Information, you may contact us. We will generally rely on you to ensure the information we hold about you is accurate or complete.
If we refuse to correct Personal Information, we will provide you with our reasons for not correcting the information.
In general, we collect statistical information from all our websites collectively, such as what site pages users visit more frequently, time online and what services users most frequently access. This data is used anonymously and in the aggregate. We use this information to evaluate our website performance, continually improve our services and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns.
We may log IP addresses (electronic addresses of computers connected to the internet) to analyse trends, administer the website, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information.
