It applies to all personal information we collect via www.wayhome.com.au, social media pages, internal websites or intranet, Wayhome mobile or tablet applications, and from individuals via any other means, including physically or electronically.
In this policy we explain how and why we collect your personal information, how we use it and disclose it, and what controls you have over our use of it. We handle your personal information securely and carefully, and we endeavour to comply with all applicable Australian privacy laws.
1. Anonymity and Pseudonymity
Where you are only making a general enquiry, you may act anonymously or under a pseudonym. When you create an account we will require your personal information as it is not practical to deal with you anonymously.
1. Collection of Information
Personal information collected by us may include your first and last name, date of birth, gender, home and business address, contact telephone number, mobile telephone number, email address, drivers licence details, employment details and financial information.
We may also collect information about your individual preferences based on our dealings with you so that we can provide you with better service.
In some cases we may also collect personal information from legitimate third party sources including social media sites and list broker and other data providers that share data in circumstances where it is lawful and/or they have your permission to do so.
1. How WE use and disclose personal information
We collect personal information so that we can provide you with the best service possible. Personal information collected is used for the following purposes:
(a)(a) to maintain the functionality of electronic interactions, such as our website, as well as testing;
(b)to meet your needs as identified by you in your website or app account setup;
(c) to send you technical, administrative or legal notices;
(d) to maintain our relationship with you or respond to your enquiries;
(e) to combine with other personal information we hold about you and to assess which of our services are most likely to be of interest to you;
(f) to provide, maintain and improve our services;
(h) to share with social media communities, to the extent allowed by you.
Personal information may be shared with trusted third parties (and their directors, servants and agents) in Australia as we consider reasonably necessary to assist you in obtaining services.
Failure to provide personal information may result in Wayhome being unable to provide you with the services you request.
In order to operate a website or deliver a service (including for example, processing of credit card payments), personal information may also be shared with selected service providers and/or other trusted third parties. Selected service providers and/or other trusted third parties may be asked by us to do things such as store data, process credit card payments or provide technical services for our website or applications. These companies may have access to personal information (if needed) to perform those functions but they may only use the personal information to perform that function.
We use and disclose personal information held about an individual for the primary purpose for which it is collected – that is, to carry on our business and provide services to our customers. We may also use that information for a purpose related to the primary purpose where you would reasonably expect that we would use the information in that way. This information is only disclosed to persons outside our business in the circumstances set out in this policy or with your permission.
In addition we are allowed to use or disclose personal information held about you where:
(a) you have consented to the use or disclosure;
(b) we reasonably believe it is necessary to lessen or prevent serious or immediate harm;
(c) we reasonably suspect that unlawful activity has been, is being or may be engaged in and the use or disclosure is a necessary part of our investigation or in reporting the matter to the relevant authorities;
(d) the use or disclosure is required under or authorised by law;
(e) where we reasonably believe that the use or disclosure is necessary for prevention, investigation, prosecution and punishment of crimes or wrongdoings or the preparation for, conduct of, proceedings before any court or tribunal or the implementation of the orders of a court or tribunal by or on behalf of an enforcement body; and
(f) where you have requested a service and we are required to disclose the information to a third party in order to facilitate the provision of that service.
1. Sensitive Information
Wayhome will only collect sensitive information with your consent. Where you provide us with sensitive information (such as information about your health) via any means, we will only use this information to serve your particular needs.
