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 that we may collect includes: name, email address, postage address, and telephone number.
This Personal Information could be obtained in several ways, including on our website or social media sites via the contact us and ordering sections, email, waiver forms, and from publicly available sources and third parties.
We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you, and possibly for providing information to our clients when applicable, and for marketing purposes. 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 and/or marketing lists at any time by either using the unsubscribe function where available, or by contacting us in writing.
When we collect your Personal Information we will, where appropriate and/or applicable, and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.
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.
Sensitive information may be used by us, only for:
- For the primary purpose for which it was obtained
- For a secondary purpose that is directly related to the primary purpose
- With your consent, or where required or authorised by law
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 from a third party. In such cases we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.

The majority of the Personal Information is or will be stored in client files which will be kept by us for a minimum of seven (7) years.
