Disclosure of Personal Information
We understand the importance of keeping Personal Information private, and will only disclose such information to others in limited circumstances.
We may disclose Personal Information in connection with (or for reasons directly related to) any of the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement to the following parties:
We may also disclose Personal Information to contractors and service providers (such as IT service providers) who provide services to us or who manage services provided to an individual on our behalf. Personal Information is only disclosed to contractors and service providers to the extent necessary to enable them to provide these services.
Disclosure to overseas recipients

We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that Personal Information transferred overseas from the country where you are based is protected in accordance with this Privacy Statement and the Privacy Acts.
Storage of Personal Information
Personal Information that we collect is either held by us at our head office (refer to the Contact Us section below) or on our behalf. For example, some information we hold will be stored in “the cloud” in secure databases on our behalf by third parties based overseas. The use of these services, and the transfer of information overseas (if applicable) will not relieve us of our obligations under the Privacy Acts and this Privacy Statement.
Security of your Personal Information is very important to us. We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to protect Personal Information that we hold. However, due to the inherent nature of the internet, we are not able to guarantee the security of any information that we hold or that you transmit to us.
Under the Privacy Acts, you have the right to access and request correction of any Personal Information that we hold about you. Please refer to the Contact Us section below. We rely on you to update us if your Personal Information changes.
Information about other people
If you provide us with, or authorise use to collect, Personal Information about another person (such as a guarantor), you confirm that they have authorised you to provide us, or authorised us to collect, their Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Statement and that you have informed them of their rights to access and request correction of their Personal Information, as set out below.
If you have any queries about this Privacy Statement, would like to access or correct your Personal Information, or if you have a question or complaint about how we handle your Personal Information, please email our Privacy Officer at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are making a complaint, we may request additional details from you and may need to engage or consult with other parties in order to investigate and deal with your complaint.
