The law applicable to this web site is the law of the State of Victoria.
Collecting Personal Information
Personal information about visitors to our site is collected only when it is necessary for Terranovate to perform one or more of its functions and activities. Terranovate will allow individuals to transact with it anonymously wherever reasonable and practicable. Personal information is mainly collected when a person knowingly and voluntarily submits such information. For example, we may need to collect such information to provide you with further services or to answer or forward any requests or enquiries.
At times, we may combine the information we collect from you with information from other sources to help us improve its overall accuracy and completeness, and to help us better tailor our interactions with you, including for research purposes. In addition, we may also collect information relating to your use of our web sites through the use of various technologies, including cookies. It is our intention that this policy will protect your personal information from being dealt with in any way that is inconsistent with the applicable privacy laws in Victoria and Australia, including the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and the National Privacy Principles contained in Schedule 3 of that Act.
We may also collect information during your visit to our website which is not personal information, because it does not reveal your identity. For example, we may record your server address, the date and time of your visit, the pages you viewed, any documents you downloaded and the type of browser and operating system you used.
If you are applying for a position with us, we may ask you to provide specific personal information, such as your name, email, address, telephone number, qualifications and career history. We may also ask you for other information such as your interests and the positions you are interested in. Any personal information you provide us in connection with a job application may be used to consider you for current and future employment and may be disclosed to our external advisors to assist us in the selection and recruitment process.
Use and Disclosure of Information
We will obtain your consent for use or disclosure of your personal information for an unrelated purpose, unless it would be within your reasonable expectations. Consent will not be obtained if the circumstances are listed under Schedule 3 ss. 2.1(a), (c), (d), (e), (ea), (f), (g) and (h) of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
Apart from where you consent or disclose to achieve the purpose for which it was submitted, personal information may be disclosed in special situations where we have reason to believe that doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone damaging, injuring, or interfering (intentionally or unintentionally) with our rights or property, users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. Also, we may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires disclosure. Please refer to the circumstances listed under Schedule 3 ss. 2.1(a), (c), (d), (e), (ea), (f), (g) and (h) of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) which lists circumstances in which we will not require your consent to disclose personal information.
We will not intentionally disclose (and will take commercially reasonable steps to prevent the accidental disclosure of) your personal information to third parties, whether for such third parties’ marketing purposes or otherwise, subject to the following exceptions:
- We may disclose your personal information to third parties as required or permitted by the laws, rules and regulations of any nation, state or other applicable jurisdiction.
- We may disclose your personal information to third parties who delivery information from us to you for the purpose of performing such delivery (such as couriers and the like).
- We may disclose your personal information if, in connection with submitting the information, you consent to such disclosure.
- We may disclose your personal information in the course of litigation or in avoiding anticipated litigation, but only to the extent necessary to do so.
- Should we merge with, or sell the majority of our assets or equity to a third party, personal information may be disclosed to and owned by the merged entity or third party.
Terranovate will, unless the law requires otherwise, take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your personal information if it is no longer required for the purpose identified. However, please note that copies of correspondence sent from the web site that may contain personal information are stored as archives for record-keeping and back-up purposes only.
Access to Information
You can request access to the personal information we hold relating to you. This will not apply where providing access would pose a serious or imminent threat to the life or health of any individual, the request is frivolous or vexatious, the information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings involving us, or we are not required to do so under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
To make a request, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org together with sufficient information to allow us to confirm your identity (generally speaking, a scanned copy of photographic identification will suffice). As soon as practicable after your request is received, your personal information will be deleted from our database.
If providing you access to your personal information would reveal evaluative information generated within our company in connection with a commercially sensitive decision-making process, we may refuse you access. We will give you an explanation in such circumstances.
We will take reasonable steps to protect the personal information we collect, use, disclose or hold about you, and to keep this information accurate, complete and up to date. If, at any time, you discover that information held about you is not accurate, complete and up-to-date, you may contact us to have the information corrected or reviewed. We will take reasonable steps to correct the information.
In the event that we deny you access to information, disagree that the information is incorrect or refuse to correct your personal information, we will provide you with reasons for this decision. If you have any concerns in relation to any of your personal information that we hold, please contact us.
