How Subsidence Advisory NSW collects and handles your personal information when you use our services.
Your personal information
Personal information is collected only when knowingly and voluntarily submitted to the Subsidence Advisory portal/website. For example, we may need to collect such information to provide you with services or to answer or forward any requests or enquiries. It is our intention that this policy will protect your personal information from being dealt with in any way that is inconsistent with applicable privacy laws.
How we collect personal information
In the course of providing our services, we collect personal information for variety of purposes. For example, information is collected when you:
- make an enquiry about our services
- make a claim for compensation
- lodge a building or subdivision application, or
- view an existing claim, application or enquiry.
Information is also collected for other directly related purposes.
Information provided by you
You provide most of the personal information directly to us and for a specific purpose.
How we use the information we collect
Use of the information for a secondary purpose
We may sometimes use the personal information we collect for a secondary purpose, that is, for use in a way different from the original reason for collection. We will only do this in the following circumstances:
- where you have consented,
- where the secondary purpose is directly related to the primary purpose, and you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose the information in such a way, or
- where we are permitted or required by law, or it is in the interests of public safety to do so.
You may ask for access to the information we hold about you at any time and request to update, correct or amend your personal information by calling 13 77 88.
We will not provide your personal information to third parties for any purposes not already stated in this privacy notice, or to which you have not otherwise consented, unless required, or authorised, by law to do so. We will not sell your details to third parties.
We strive to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personal information submitted to our site. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure.
We will take reasonable security measures to protect your personal information from loss, unauthorised access, use, modification, disclosure, or other misuse. Physical measures, such as building and equipment security, are used in conjunction with digital technology, such as data encryption and firewalls, to minimise unauthorised access to information.
In addition, our employees and the contractors who provide services related to our information systems are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by us. However, we will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information.
Links to other sites
We may provide links to websites outside of our portal/website, as well as to third party websites. These linked sites are not under our control, and we cannot accept responsibility for the conduct of companies linked to our portal/website. Before disclosing your personal information on any other website, we advise you to examine the terms and conditions of using that website and its privacy statement.
