We also reserve the right to choose to disclose your information to law enforcement agencies in circumstances described in the National Privacy Principles and other applicable laws and regulations, including for the purpose of investigating alleged contraventions of the law. 

With your consent
Other than as outlined above, we will endeavor to provide you with notice (which may occur via your nominated e-mail) when we wish to provide personal information about you to third parties, and provide you with the opportunity to choose not to share that information.

  • allocate a unique identification number to your Internet browser.

How secure is your information?
We attempt to keep your information secure and free from unauthorised access and use, by using industry standard technological measures to prevent unauthorised remote access.

Unfortunately, data transmission over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure despite our best efforts and so we are unable to absolutely guarantee security and there will always be a risk of unauthorised access to your information. Although we will take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information that we hold about you, we will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to such information.
