WaterSecure only collects personal information that has been directly provided to us by you or is otherwise available in the public domain where this information will assist us with the provision of services to you. Information may have been provided verbally or in writing (including by email or through web forms).

Also, our website uses cookies to identify site users and their interests and to track usage of the site. Cookies are small pieces of text stored on a computer that help us to know which browser the operator is using, where they have been on the site and any web sites to which they may link in order to use some of our features.

4. How we use your personal information

WaterSecure may at times use and disclose personal information about an individual for the “primary purpose” of collection (i.e. the dominant or fundamental purpose for which that information is collected). As well as providing services to clients, that “primary purpose” includes facilitating our internal business processes, communicating with clients, prospective clients and other external parties, providing ongoing marketing information about our products and services, complying with our legal obligations and dealing with enquiries and complaints.

In certain circumstances, the law may permit or require us to use or disclose personal information for other purposes.

Sensitive information

Our policy is that we do not collect sensitive information about our clients or prospective clients. If any of our clients or prospective clients elects to provide us with any sensitive personal information, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the sensitive information is securely protected.

7. Disclosure of Personal Information

Personal information is not disclosed to a third party unless the disclosure is necessary to support the delivery of the client services for which WaterSecure has been, or is expected to be, engaged, or is required by law.

In certain circumstances, WaterSecure may also disclose personal information to third party service providers (such as IT service providers) who assist us to administer our business.

Should it be necessary for WaterSecure to forward personal information to third parties outside the firm, we will make every effort to ensure that the confidentiality of the information is protected.

8. How we store your personal information

WaterSecure will take all reasonable steps to protect against the loss, misuse and/or alteration of the information under its control, including through appropriate physical and electronic security strategies. Only authorised WaterSecure personnel are provided access to personal information, and these employees are required to treat this information as confidential. We may need to maintain records for a significant period of time. However, when we consider information is no longer needed, we will destroy or de-identify these records.

Our policy is that all electronic records are only stored within Australia whenever this is commercially feasible. However, on occasion, a limited number of specialist software applications may involve the storage of personal data at an overseas location where a suitable alternative is not available.

WaterSecure will only store data with an external provider if a technical assessment of a service provider’s security protocols are considered to meet or exceed the level of security that WaterSecure could apply if the electronic data were to be stored in WaterSecure’s own in-house systems.

9. Accuracy of personal information

WaterSecure will take all reasonable steps to make sure that any personal information collected, used or disclosed is accurate, complete and up to date.

If a person believes that the information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, they may contact our Privacy Officer and we will update the relevant information accordingly.

A person has the right to request access to any personal information that we may hold about them and to advise us if the information should be corrected. Subject to our right to refuse access, WaterSecure will provide the person with a report that lists any personal information that we may hold.

Our policy is to provide written acknowledgement of our receipt of any request for access to personal information or a request for correction of personal information within 7 days of the request being received. We will then provide a written response within 30 days of our receipt of the request.
