Why do we collect personal information?
We collect personal information about our customers, suppliers, contractors and other contacts to understand and meet their needs, to conduct our activities and meet legal obligations.
What personal information do we collect?
The types of personal information we may collect include contact information (such as your name, address, email address, fax and telephone number), information about your employer or the organisation that nominated you (if you are a committee member), your committee affiliations and any feedback that you provide to us about our products and services, our website, or other matters.
