2. LIMBER’S PERSONAL INFORMATION HANDLING PROCESSES
2.1 Our commitment to privacy protection
We are committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of all people connected with the activities of Limber. This Privacy and Data Use Policy (Policy) tells you the kind of personal information we, or others on our behalf, collect and hold. It also explains how and why we collect, hold and use that information.
Personal information is information or an opinion about an individual whose identity is reasonably identifiable. Examples include a person’s name, address, date of birth and employment details.
Although, as a small business operator, Limber is not bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), we are still committed to protecting the personal information we collect, hold and use.
2.2 What kind of personal information do we collect and hold?
We collect and hold information where it is reasonably necessary for us to carry out our activities. The personal information we collect and hold for candidates and employees can include, but is not limited to, your:
2.3 How do we collect and hold personal information?
We usually collect personal information by the following methods:
Where possible, we always collect personal information directly from the relevant individual, with the consent of them or their authorised representative. Where we collect information from a third party, we only do so if the individual would reasonably expect us to collect their information in this way. An example of where an individual would reasonably expect us to collect their personal information is collecting information from referees to confirm working history and suitability or collecting information from the Department of Home Affairs to confirm working rights in Australia.
All personal information held by Limber is stored on secure drives administered by Microsoft Corporation.
2.4 How do we use and disclose personal information?
We use and disclose personal information for the purpose of operating Limber. This includes:
2.5 How do we deal with Tax File Numbers?
If a person gives us their Tax File Number (TFN), we keep that information secure.
Due to legal restraints on the disclosure of TFNs, if a person asks us for their TFN, we will not be able to provide it to them. If a person wants to obtain their TFN they will need to obtain this from the Australian Taxation Office directly.
In limited circumstances, the Australian Taxation Commissioner can be required by law to provide a person’s TFN to us.
2.6 Where do we store personal information?
We have systems and procedures in place to protect personal information from misuse and loss, as well as from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
We store the personal information we hold about you in Australia. We have set up our information technology arrangements so that your data stays onshore, where you have the protection of Australian privacy law.
3. ACCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you want to access information about you, or want us to amend information about you, please contact our Privacy Officer using the details at the bottom of this Policy. We will consider your request and come back to you to discuss next steps.
4. WHAT IF YOU AREN’T SATISFIED WITH HOW WE ARE DEALING WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION?
In the first instance, we ask that you contact our Privacy Officer and let us see what we can do. We will listen carefully to your complaint and come back to you with a response.
If you are still not satisfied after we have responded to you, you can make a complaint to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner at https://www.oaic.gov.au/privacy/privacy-complaints/.

If you have any questions or concerns about how we handle personal information, our Privacy Officer is the first, best point of contact.
