Moose is committed to safeguarding your privacy online.
Please read the whole of this policy to understand how your personal information will be treated.
This policy may change from time to time, so please check back regularly.
Collection of Information
Personal information is information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable whether the information or opinion is true or not.
We collect information from employees. This information will contain personal information such as name, address, date of birth, employment history, superannuation and tax file number details and where necessary, may include health information. Generally, we will collect personal information directly from the employee but some information may be provided by third parties providing human resource services. Employee personal information will be used to provide employment related services including professional development, training, coaching and mentoring, remuneration and pay roll and employee support services. Third parties engaged to provide any of these services are also obliged to comply with the Privacy Act.
We collect information from job candidates. This information will contain personal information such as name, address, residency status, employment history and referee details. Generally, we will collect personal information directly from the job candidate but some information may be provided by third parties providing human resource services. Job candidate personal information will be used for recruitment purposes and to evaluate the job candidate’s application. Where we wish to use the information for other purposes we will seek your agreement beforehand.
We do not disclose personal information to third parties unless we are permitted to do so by law or you have given us your consent to do so. Third parties we may disclose personal information to include:
- our related companies
- our service providers including IT service providers, major delivery companies, mail houses and third party fulfilment contractors
- our professional advisors including our accountants, auditors and lawyers
- payment system operators and financial institutions
- government agencies
Some of our service providers provide services to us entirely or partly from overseas locations and we may in order to receive those services occasionally transfer personal information overseas, including where:
- we use service providers, cloud computing solutions or data storage located overseas;
- we, or our related bodies corporate, have offices overseas;
- we need to comply with foreign legal or regulatory requirements; or
- an international payment has been made.
Accessing and checking the personal information we hold about you
You have the right to request access to the personal information we hold about you. This right is subject to certain exceptions (see below) allowed by law.
Moose will, upon your request, and subject to applicable privacy laws, provide you with access to your personal information that is held by us. However, we ask that you identify, as clearly as possible, the type (s) of information requested. Moose will deal with your request in a reasonable time. Depending on the breadth of your request, we may recover from you our reasonable costs incurred in supplying you with access to this information.
We rely on the accuracy of the information you provide to us. If you think that we may hold information about you that is incorrect in any way, please contact us and we will correct any errors or inaccuracies where required.
Your right to access your personal information is not absolute. In some circumstances, the law permits us to refuse your request to provide you with access to your personal information, such as circumstances where:
- access would pose a serious threat to the life or health of any individual
- access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others
- the request is frivolous
- the information relates to a commercially-sensitive decision-making process
- access would be unlawful
- access may prejudice enforcement activities, a security function or commercial negotiations
Moose is committed to keeping your trust by protecting and securing your personal information. We have in place reasonable commercial standards of technology and operational security to protect all personal information provided to us from misuse, interference, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
We limit access to personal information to individuals with a business need consistent with the reason the information was provided. We keep personal information only for as long as it is required for business purposes or by the law.
