We are committed to protecting the privacy of this personal information.
“Personal information” means any information that can be used to identify a person.
How we collect personal information
The personal information we collect about you is information that is reasonably necessary for, or directly related to, one or more of our business activities or functions. It helps us provide you with a tailored service according to your needs.
Where possible, CoAct will collect personal information directly from you and will always advise why we are collecting the information.
In order to provide you with a service we need to know who you are, but when making enquiries or complaints you may choose to deal with us anonymously or under a pseudonym. However, this may affect how effectively we can address your issue.
We take great care and effort to ensure that the information you provide to us remains private and is used only for the purpose for which it was collected. We may, where necessary, disclose the personal information we collect about you to third parties engaged by us to carry out, advise or assist with the carrying out of our business activities.
We may contact you from time to time to tell you about our services (direct marketing) or survey you in order to improve our services. You will be able to opt out of such communications. We do not disclose personal information to other organisations for the purpose of direct marketing.
CoAct does not disclose any customer personal information to any overseas recipient nor store customer data offshore.
We take steps to ensure your information is safe and secure using a range of measures in order to protect your information from misuse, loss and unauthorised access or disclosure.
