Macleay River Hardwoods Pty Ltd. (MRH) and its related entities (referred to as “us”, "we" or “our”) are committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information that we collect from you and complying with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the “Privacy Act”), including the Australian Privacy Principles (the “APPs”).
We note that under the Privacy Act the employee records exemption exempts employers from the Privacy Principles in relation to an act done, or practice engaged in if it directly relates to a current or former employment relationship between the employer and the individual and the employee record is held by the organisation and relates to the individual.
What is personal information?
The Privacy Act 1988 (the Privacy Act) defines personal information as information or an opinion about an individual (whether true or not) whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information or opinion. Personal information is any information that can be used to identify you. If the information you provide to us identifies you or your identity can be reasonably ascertained from such information, it will be considered personal information and we will manage such information in accordance with the Privacy Act, APPs and this policy.
Collection of personal information
We collect personally identifiable information when you knowingly provide it to us. This may occur, for example, when you visit our website and complete the User Registration form, enter a promotion or make an enquiry.
We only collect personally identifiable information and sensitive data when there is a legitimate business need to do so.
If you choose not to provide certain information, you may not be able to access some areas of our website and may be precluded from taking advantage of some of our services.
Use of your personal information
The personal information that we collect from you may be used for reasonable business purposes in that we may store and process information to fulfil your requests or to enable us to develop and customise services to better meet your needs and preferences. Your personal information may be used for statistical purposes (e.g., to monitor website usage statistics, including visitor tracking) and other customer support purposes.
In addition, if you complete the User Registration or subscribe to receive a newsletter, we may use your personal information to send you information about topics that we believe you may be interested in and for promotional and marketing purposes, including sending you information about products, special offers and promotions, unless you tell us otherwise.
For any of the above purposes, you consent to us contacting you by any means, including electronic messages and by telephone, for an indefinite period. You can unsubscribe or ask us to stop contacting you for any of these purposes at any time.
Disclosure to third parties
We will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. We only disclose personal information to selected third parties who carry out functions on our behalf, such as sending mail and e-mail, data entry, data analysis, developing and maintaining our website, providing marketing assistance, processing payments, and providing customer service. These third parties will only have access to personally identifiable information to the extent needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Other than as described above, we will not share your information to any other third party for any other purpose without your consent, unless it is otherwise necessary, as contemplated by the Australian privacy law.
We will store a candidate’s personal information for a reasonable period of time necessary for us to provide services to the candidate. At any time, and at the candidate’s request, we will destroy the personal information of that candidate. We will do this for any lawful request.
Access to review and correct your information
You can make a request to review, update or correct any personal information that we hold about you (subject to any exemptions under the Australian privacy law), by contacting us as set out below. We may require you to verify your identity before providing access.
