Use of Collected Information
Personal information provided by you will not be used and/or disclosed for any purpose other than the purpose of the transaction you have entered into (for example, if you subscribe to our newsletter your details will only be used to send you email based newsletters) unless such a disclosure is required or authorised by the Information Privacy Act or another law for example for law enforcement purposes or to reduce the threat of harm.
How we handle email and “Contact us” messages
We may preserve the content of any email or “Contact us” or other electronic message that we receive.
