What personal information do we collect?
We may also collect, and process non-personal information provided to us by your browser when you visit our websites or use our applications (for example the website you came from, your location information, IP address, web browser and/or device type and the time and date of access).
How do we collect and hold personal information?
We will generally collect personal information:
- From you directly when you provide your details to us;

- In some circumstances we may collect personal information about an individual from a third party (for example, a report provided by a medical professional or an employment reference from another person).
We will normally hold your personal information in electronic or hard copy form.
How do we protect personal information?
Where we have links to websites outside Tutt Bryant Group, we cannot ensure your privacy will be protected in accordance with this policy. You should consult these other websites privacy policies as we have no control over them and are not responsible for any information that is submitted to or collected by these third parties. When your information is no longer required, we will ensure that the hard copy information is destroyed or de-identified.
How we might use and disclose your personal information
Tutt Bryant Group will generally use and disclose your personal information for the purpose for which it was collected. To achieve this purpose, we may disclose personal information to affiliates of Tutt Bryant Group, entities assisting us in providing our services and social media channels on which we have a presence.

- conduct our business;
- provide and market our equipment or services;
- communicate with you to provide or promote our equipment or services;
- purchase goods or services;

- administer, maintain support and provide upgrades to, our services and applications.
We may give your credit information to Credit Reporting Bodies (“CRB”) and seek from a CRB your credit reporting information. Such information is used for assessing your commercial credit or a credit guarantee application. Your information may also be disclosed to relevant third parties such as other credit providers (for a particular purpose), guarantors, and other recipients as permitted under the Act. The way we provide goods and services to our customers may be affected by the information we hold. For example, if you did not provide a properly completed credit application we may be unable to extend credit facilities.
We may also use and/or disclose your personal information for other purposes which you consent to or which are required or permitted by law. This may include secondary purposes that are related to a purpose for which we collected it, and for which you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose your personal information.

Do we disclose your personal information to third parties or anyone outside Australia?
We may disclose personal information to Tutt Bryant Group affiliates and third-party suppliers and service providers located overseas for some of the purposes listed above. This does not diminish your rights and we will take all reasonable steps to ensure transferred information is kept secure as required by applicable data privacy laws. By submitting your personal information to us you agree that you do not object to any such transfer, processing or storage. If we merge, combine or divest a part of our business, we may also pass on your details to our new colleagues and the manager of any entity through which they operate unless prohibited from doing so by law.
