This policy also applies to all business activities of Practical Logic Pty Ltd (ABN 15 145 719 286) that are concerned with the collection, use, disclosure and handling of personal information.
Under Australian law, Practical Logic is not required to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act (Cw’th) 1988, as the company does not meet the criteria of those organisations for which compliance is mandatory.
Nevertheless, Practical Logic recognises the importance to its clients, and to their customers, of the need for absolute discretion and security in the handling of personal information.
Irrespective of any legal obligation, it is therefore the policy of Practical Logic Pty Ltd to comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act 1988 and the National Privacy Principles contained in that Act in all activities of the company that require the collection, use, disclosure or handling of personal information.
Practical Logic will only collect personal information that is necessary for the conduct of its business activities. We will only collect personal information by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way.
Where it is practical, we will collect personal information concerning an individual only from that individual and we will make known the purpose for which we are collecting that information.
USE AND DISCLOSURE
Practical Logic will only use or disclose personal information about an individual for the original purpose for which it was collected, unless the individual has consented to the use or disclosure or in the opinion of Practical Logic, the individual would reasonably expect the company to use or disclose the information for a related secondary purpose (such as direct marketing).
Practical Logic will immediately cease using any personal information where the individual concerned has requested that their information no longer be used.
Personal information collected and/or stored for on behalf of a client, remains the property iof that client, and will not be used by Practical Logic for any purpose related to its own business or that of any other client.
Practical Logic will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information it holds is maintained as accurate, complete and current.
Practical Logic will take reasonable steps to protect the personal information it holds from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
On request by individuals, Practical Logic will make known to those individuals the types of personal information it holds about them, the purpose for which it is held and, where recorded, how Practical Logic collects, holds and uses that information.
ACCESS AND CORRECTION
On request by an individual, Practical Logic will allow that individual a reasonable opportunity to correct any inaccuracies or out-of-date information.
Practical Logic will not use Tax File Numbers or other government-issued identifiers to identify a record of personal information relating to an individual.
Practical Logic will maintain the anonymity of an individual in a database of personal information unless, in the opinion of Practical Logic, it is necessary that the identity of the individual be disclosed to complete a legal or business function.
TRANS-BORDER DATA FLOWS
Practical Logic will not transfer personal information relating to an individual outside Australia except where the individual has consented to such a transfer or Practical Logic has satisfied itself that the recipient of the personal information will uphold principles for the handling of personal information which are similar to Australia’s National Privacy Principles.
SENSITIVE AND HEALTH INFORMATION
Practical Logic will not collect, use, disclose or handle any personal information which is classified by the Australian Privacy Act 1988 as sensitive information (e.g. information concerning race, religion, political affiliations) or health information (e.g. information concerning an individual’s medical condition) for its own purposes.
