This policy explains how DAVIS NUTTALL Consulting handles personal information and complies with the requirements of the Australian Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) ("Privacy Act").
Collection of Personal Information
During the course of our business activities DAVIS NUTTALL Consulting collects personal information from clients, prospective clients, prospective employees, contractors and other interested individuals. Typically, this information includes names, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and job titles.
Use of Personal Information
The main purposes we collect personal information about individuals are:
- to provide our services;
- to respond to an individual's request;
- to maintain contact with clients;
- to keep clients and other contacts informed of the services we offer and industry developments that may be of interest to them, and to notify them of service offerings, seminars and other events we are holding;
- for general management and reporting purposes, such as invoicing and account management;
- for recruitment purposes;
- for purposes related to the employment of our personnel and providing internal services to our staff; and
- all other purposes related to our business.
We may use personal information about individuals to market our services, including by email. However, individuals always have the opportunity to elect not to receive further marketing information from us by writing to DAVIS NUTTALL Consulting, PO Box 703 Central Park, VIC 3145, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by using the unsubscribe function in any email correspondence from us.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We do not share personal information with third parties except as necessary to carry out our business or as required by law or other legal processes, and we never sell personal information.
We also collect information online via our website. The extent and type of information we receive via the website depends on what these interested parties wish to communicate with us regarding, and how they wished to be communicated with by us. Our website provides opportunities for interested parties to make contact and request information or further contact, and to indicate how they would prefer for that to occur. We use the information provided to respond to these contacts and to personalise their experience as far as we practically can.
Cookies may be used on some areas of our websites. A cookie is a small software application which allows a website to recognise a previous user and to observe how a user navigates within a website. Cookies are now used as a standard by many websites. Cookies are primarily used to enhance your online experience.
If you visit our site to read or download information, such as news stories or articles, we collect statistical information (e.g. the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to our site). None of this information specifically identifies an individual and it is used solely to ensure that our websites present the best possible navigational experience for visitors.
Security of Personal Information
We will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information which we hold about you, whether electronically or in hard-copy, and to keep this information accurate and up to date. We also require our employees and data processors to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by DAVIS NUTTALL Consulting.
Access to Information
We will provide access to personal information upon request by an individual, except in the limited circumstances in which it is permitted for us to withhold this information (for instance, where granting access would infringe another person's privacy).
Corrections and Concerns
If you believe that information we hold about you is incorrect or out of date, or if you have concerns about how we are handling your personal information, please contact us and we will try to resolve those concerns.
If you wish to have your personal information deleted, please let us know and we will take reasonable steps to delete it (unless we need to keep it for legal, auditing or internal risk management reasons).
