Wrays is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of all who we deal with, and we are bound to comply with the National Privacy Principles set out in the private sector amendments to the Privacy Act 1988 (Commonwealth), which were adopted in December 2001. Personal information is information or an opinion about an individual whose identity is known or can be reasonably ascertained from the material, and typically includes details such as names, addresses, email addresses, and telephone numbers.
The personal information is collected so that we can effectively provide or market our services to you or to related individuals, and some of the personal information may be shared when necessary with relevant third parties such as IP Australia, Overseas Associates or debt collection agencies. We do not disclose personal information to any organisation for the purpose of third party marketing activities. Because of the nature of our work it is our intention to retain the personal information indefinitely, unless specific instructions to the contrary are received in writing.
You have a right to access the personal information that we collect and hold about you, and whilst we make every effort to keep the information accurate and up to date, it is in your interests to advise us promptly of any changes, particularly in relation to your address should you be a client of the Firm. We have taken reasonable steps to protect the integrity of the personal information we hold about you, including security systems and locks for our physical premises and data storage facilities. Our Staff are also required to sign confidentiality agreements which prohibit the use or distribution of any information gained during the tenure of their employment.
