Why do we collect personal information?

Where you do not wish to provide us with your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with requested goods or services.
Whose personal information do we collect?
We collect or hold personal information about individuals who are prospective, current and former clients. This also includes associates of our clients including the employees or agents that act on behalf of our clients in liaising with us.
We also collect personal information about other people we interact with in the course of our business, including the personnel of our suppliers, partners, contractors and agents, as well as persons who attend our events or who apply to work with us.
What personal information do we usually collect?
We collect a wide range of personal information relevant to our advised purposes, but the type and amount of information depends on the particular business context.
We need to collect basic contact information for our clients, agents, affiliates, service providers and their staff for the purposes of conducting our day-to-day business activities. This can include (but is not limited to) details such as your name, email address, telephone number, postal address and billing information.
We may collect images and recordings of persons attending marketing functions and Cbus Property events through filming or photography.
We may also collect your opinions from time to time, including as part of responses to surveys conducted by us or on our behalf.

Where we do collect sensitive information about you, we will only do so with your consent, or otherwise in accordance with the APPs.
We collect information about the usage of our digital platforms, including our Websites, Apps and social media platforms. The section ‘Cookies’ below explains some of the tracking technology we use in order to monitor interactions with our online presence. We may also collect other digital identifiers, such as your mobile device’s advertising identifier when using our Apps.
Our Apps may use location data, such as during registration processes to provide targeted content. However, we do not store any location data associated with your usage of our Apps unless we expressly advise otherwise.
How do we collect personal information?
We will collect and hold your personal information in a fair and lawful manner, and not in an intrusive way.
We will generally collect personal information directly from you, unless it is unreasonable or impracticable to do so. Ways in which we collect information from you may include where you correspond with us, when you speak to any of our staff, by filming or photography when you attend our functions or events, or when you use any of our Apps or Websites.
We may also collect personal information from other members of our corporate group, as well as from third parties such as agents, suppliers, contractors, recruitment agencies, and parties involved in operating functionality of our Apps or Websites on our behalf.
If someone other than you provide us with personal information about you, for example our client provides us with personal information for the purposes of performing any services we are engaged to perform, we will take such steps (if any) as are reasonable in the circumstances to notify you (either directly or via the third party) or otherwise ensure that you are aware that this has occurred.
When you visit one of our Websites the server may attach a “cookie” to your computer’s memory. A “cookie” assists us to store information on how visitors to a Website use it and the pages that may be of most interest. If you choose, you are able to configure your computer so that is disables “cookies” or does not accept them.
Our servers may record other information about or relating to you, such as the time and date of your visit or the IP address assigned to the device you are using to access our Apps or Site. In many cases, we cannot and do not use this information to identify you personally. Rather, we simply use this information for the operation of the Websites and Apps, to maintain the quality of the Websites and Apps, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of the Websites and Apps.
Where we collect personal information for a particular purpose, we may use and disclose the information:
Without limiting the above, the following are examples of where your personal information may be disclosed by us:

On the rare occasions when we refuse to provide access to or correction of your personal information, we will provide you with a written notice stating our reasons for doing so.
We do not routinely send your personal information to overseas companies, but there are circumstances in which this may occur. It is not practicable to specify the relevant countries which may be involved.
From time to time, we may engage an overseas recipient to provide services to us, such as cloud-based storage solutions. Please note that the use of overseas service providers to store personal information will not always involve a disclosure of personal information to that overseas provider.
If we do send your information overseas, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the recipient of the information protects the security of that information to the standards required under Australian law.
We will use all reasonable endeavours to keep your personal information in a secure environment. We maintain appropriate physical, procedural and technical security for our offices and information storage facilities in order to seek to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, or modification of personal information. This also applies to disposal of personal information.
