This is the Privacy Statement of Emblem Group Pty Ltd ACN 629 409 801 and each of its related bodies corporate (Emblem, we, us or our).
We respect your privacy and we are committed to managing your personal information responsibly and in accordance with our legal obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act). The Privacy Act regulates the way we collect, use, disclose, keep secure, and give you access to, your personal information.
This Privacy Statement sets out the type of information we collect and how we collect, store, use and disclose your personal information.
You are not required to provide us with your personal information, but if you do not do so we may not be able to provide you with our services.
If you apply for or accept any of our services or otherwise provide us with your personal information, then you agree to your information being collected, held, used and disclosed as set out in this Privacy Statement.
We may update and revise this Privacy Statement from time to time. The current version of our Privacy Statement can be accessed free of charge on our website, www.emblemgroup.com.au, or by contacting us on the details below. This version of our Privacy Statement was last updated in September 2022.
We will only collect personal information from you which is necessary for us to provide our products and services and to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations. In order to provide our products and services.
We may collect your full name, date of birth and contact details (including your residential address, e-mail address, and fax and telephone/mobile number).
Unless it is unreasonable or impractical for us to do so, we will collect your personal information from you directly, including—
(a) through your use of our website,
(b) from communications between you and our officers, employees and representatives (including communications conducted in person, over the phone, by email or otherwise), and
(c) from promotional and marketing activities undertaken by us, in which we request or otherwise receive personal information from you.
However, we may also collect information about you from third parties, such as—
(a) your professional advisors or service providers engaged by you,
(b) your authorised representatives, and
(c) subject to your consent, identification verification service providers that we may engage to collect and verify personal information electronically.
We may use “cookies” to help us tailor our website to better suit your needs and improve our service. Cookies are small text files that are stored in your computer’s memory and hard drive when you visit certain web pages. Cookies are used to enable websites to function or to provide information to the owners of a website.
(a) Analytical purposes—Analytical cookies allow us to recognise, measure and track visitors to the website. This helps us to improve and develop the way the website works, for example, by determining whether site visitors can find information easily, or by identifying the aspects of the site that are of the most interest to them.
(b) Usage preferences—Some of the cookies on the website are activated when visitors to our sites make a choice about their usage of the site. Our website then ‘remembers’ the settings preferences of the user concerned. This allows us to tailor aspects of the site to the individual user.
(e) Functional purposes—Functional purpose cookies store information that is needed by our applications to process and operate. For example, where transactions or requests within an application involve multiple workflow stages, cookies are used to store the information from each stage temporarily, in order to facilitate completion of the overall transaction or request.
All personal information we collect will be held securely and in accordance with this Privacy Statement. We will protect your personal information and prevent unauthorised access through the use of secure passwords, user logins, or other security procedures, including firewalls and anti-virus technology.
However, we cannot provide any assurance regarding the security of information transmitted to us online, as the internet is inherently insecure. Nor can we guarantee the supply of information to us from you will not be intercepted. Information you transmit to us online is at your own risk.
We may also send you direct marketing communications and information about any other products or services offered by us that we expect may be of interest to you. These communications may be sent in various forms, including mail, fax and email.
At any time, you may opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us by contacting us (see contact details below).
You may request access to any of your personal information held by us. Generally, if the personal information held by us about you is incorrect, then we will correct it at your request.
Your right to access is subject to some exceptions allowed by law. We will notify you of the basis for any denial of access to your personal information.
Please contact our Privacy Officer using the below details to request access to any of your personal information held by us.
