Our obligations

The Company is bound by the National Privacy Principles (NPPs) under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) in the way that it handles personal information.

The expression ‘personal information’ is used in this policy to refer to information or an opinion about an individual whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information or opinion.

We only collect personal information that is necessary for our functions and activities.

The Company only collects personal information to the extent that it is:

  • necessary for it to carry out its core business of providing solutions for air/water purification and resource recovery; or
  • incidental to the carrying out of its core business.

Personal information will generally only be collected for the purpose of enabling us to liaise with individuals who are, or who are associated with, shareholders, clients, suppliers, contractors, customers or potential customers.

We may collect personal information from you in a variety of ways including, without limitation, on forms, questionnaires and surveys, by our website (including cookie collection), over the telephone, by email or person to person.

The types of personal information which we may collect and hold in these circumstances include, without limitation, an individual’s name, address, phone number, email address and other contact details.

Information Use and Disclosure

The Company will not use or disclose personal information that we collect for any purpose other than the primary purpose of collection unless:

  • such use is related to the primary purpose and you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose the information for that other purpose;
  • in the case of direct marketing not related to our activities – we have obtained your prior consent (unless it is not reasonably practicable to seek your consent and we otherwise comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act); or
  • the use or disclosure is otherwise permitted under the Privacy Act.

Data Security
