Collection of your Personal Information
ACE only collects personal information from you, which is necessary for conducting its business, providing its services to you and meeting its legal obligations. ACE collects personal information about you only by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way.
ACE takes reasonable steps to ensure that you know why ACE are collecting your personal information, what ACE use it for, to whom ACE disclose it and how you can access it to ensure its accuracy.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, ACE collects personal information about you directly from you. Generally, ACE may collect personal information about you when you meet with us in person, contact us by telephone, facsimile or e-mail, correspond with us by mail or when you request further information about our services through our website.
Generally, ACE only collects personal information from our website when you provide it to us voluntarily, for example when you complete an electronic form requesting further details about our services.
Occasionally, while acting on your behalf ACE may collect personal information about you from a third party such as organisations with whom you may have dealings, an information service provider or from a publicly maintained record.
Use and Disclosure of your Personal Information
ACE endeavours to use and disclose personal information about you only for the primary purpose for which ACE have collected it. The primary purpose of collection may relate to the provision of our services considering your application for employment with us; obtaining services from you; or marketing our services to you.
Sometimes it may be necessary to use or disclose your personal information for a secondary purpose, which is related to the primary purpose of collection, such as providing ACE's newsletter to you.
ACE does not disclose or sell personal information to third parties, which ACE collects and holds, in order to allow them to directly market their products and services to you.
Securing your Personal Information
ACE will take reasonable steps to protect the personal information which ACE holds from misuse and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
To protect your personal information, ACE has implemented physical, computer and network, communications and personnel security measures. Locks and a monitored alarm system secure ACE's office and data storage facilities. Authorised users who have been issued passwords and specific user identifiers only can gain access to our computer system.
ACE takes reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your personal information if it is no longer needed. ACE has in place systems for destroying or de-identifying personal information that is no longer required, such as shredding of paper documents that contain such information.
Accessing your Personal Information
Subject to the exceptions outlined in the Privacy Act, you may gain access to the personal information that ACE holds about you by contacting our Privacy Officer.
ACE will deal with your request within a reasonable time. ACE may charge you a reasonable fee for retrieving the personal information ACE holds about you and providing you with a copy of it.
