Privacy

This privacy policy applies to T & C Couriers and to all business activities of T & C Couriers, to the extent that they affect or involve the collection, use, disclosure or handling of personal information.

T & C Couriers understands the importance of the discreet and confidential handling of personal information. Within this privacy statement, personal information means information or an opinion (including information or an opinion forming part of a database), whether true or not, and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an individual whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information or opinion (source: privacy act 1988).

Whether for T & C Couriers or its clients, T & C Couriers will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way.

Where practicable, T & C Couriers will make known the purpose for which it is collecting personal information and will collect personal information concerning an individual only from that individual, except as required for validation of information.

T & C Couriers will not use personal information concerning an individual for a purpose other than the primary purpose for which it was collected, unless T & C Couriers has obtained the consent of the individual to the use of that information for a secondary use. Personal information collected and/or stored for one client is never used for or disclosed to another client or to any other third party except for those we have contracted third party services for the delivery and execution of T & C Couriers` product and service provision. Personal information provided to third parties to enable them to perform their agreed activities are bound by confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements and are prohibited from using the information for any other purpose. T & C Couriers also ensure that they are aware of our obligations under the privacy act and that they agree to be bound by these obligations.

On request by individuals, T & C Couriers will make known to those individuals the types of personal information it holds, the purpose for which it is held and how T & C Couriers collects, holds and uses that information. Access and correction on request by an individual but subject to the exceptions prescribed by the national privacy principles, T & C Couriers will provide the individual with access to their personal information and will allow that individual a reasonable opportunity to correct any inaccuracies or out-of-date information.

Where practicable, T & C Couriers will maintain the anonymity of an individual in a database of personal information unless the identity of the individual is necessary to perform a lawful activity. T & C Couriers will apply particularly stringent procedures to its collection, use, disclosure and handling of any personal information, which includes sensitive information (e.g. information concerning an individual`s medical condition).

Requests for access to an individual`s personal information held by T & C Couriers and any general privacy inquiries should be addressed to admin@tccouriers.com.au
