Freedom Fuels is committed to customer service and this policy outlines our ongoing obligations to you in respect of how we manage your Personal Information.
We have adopted the 10 National Privacy Principles (NPPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act) which govern the way in which we collect, use, disclose, store, secure and dispose of your Personal Information. See www.privacy.gov.au for more details.
What is Personal Information and why do we collect it?
Personal Information is information or an opinion that identifies an individual.
Examples of Personal Information we collect include: names, addresses, email addresses, phone and facsimile numbers. This Personal Information is obtained in many ways including interviews, correspondence, by telephone and facsimile, by email, via our website ffs.khemistry.com.au and from third parties.
We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing information and services to you as our customer or potential employee. We may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time; all you need to do is let us know.
We do also automatically collect data on our website including logging our visitor’s domain and IP address automatically; this information does not identify you as an individual, but only the computer that is being used to view the site. This data is used to see where the site is being used in the world to ensure coverage, and for click stream analysis to help better understand site usage, so that we can improve our service to you. We do not link information automatically logged with personal data about specific individuals. Our website may use session cookies when an individual utilises features such as search queries, RSS and flash components.
When you request information via our website, we may need to know some personal information about you. When emailing us, registering for recruitment, subscribing for free news or information we need your e-mail address, name and other limited personal identifiers. Your personal data may be processed to provide information, products and services you request in the form that you require.
Sensitive information is defined in the Privacy Act to include information or opinion about such things as an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a trade union or other professional body, criminal record or health information.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your Personal Information only from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties. In such a case we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by such third party
Disclosure of Personal Information
Security of Personal Information
