Disclosure of personal information

We may disclose your personal infor­ma­tion if:

  • you autho­rise the disclo­sure

We will not retain your personal infor­ma­tion for longer than is required for the purpose for which the infor­ma­tion may lawfully be used.

Accessing and correcting your personal information

Subject to certain grounds for refusal set out in the Act, you have the right to access your read­ily retriev­able personal infor­ma­tion that we hold and to request a correc­tion to your personal infor­ma­tion. Before you exer­cise this right, we will need evidence to confirm that you are the indi­vid­ual to whom the personal infor­ma­tion relates.

In respect of a request for correc­tion, if we think the correc­tion is reason­able and we are reason­ably able to change the personal infor­ma­tion, we will make the correc­tion. If you want to exer­cise either of the above rights, email us at [email protected]. Your email should provide evidence of who you are and set out the details of your request (e.g. the personal infor­ma­tion, or the correc­tion, that you are request­ing).

Internet use

While we take reason­able steps to main­tain secure inter­net connec­tions, if you provide us with personal infor­ma­tion over the inter­net, the provi­sion of that infor­ma­tion is at your own risk.

If you follow a link on our website to another site, the owner of that site will have its own privacy policy relat­ing to your personal infor­ma­tion. We suggest you review that site’s privacy policy before you provide personal infor­ma­tion.
