In this case, you may not be able to use our services, and we will notify you if this is the case at the time. 

 

CHANGE OF PURPOSE 
We will only use your data for the purposes we collected it unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to receive an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is consistent with the original purpose, please contact us.

If we need to use your data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you, and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, complying with the rules above, where this is required or permitted by law. 

AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING
We use technologies that are considered automated decision making or profiling. We will not make any automated decisions about you that would significantly affect you unless such a decision is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract with you, we have obtained your consent, or we are required by the applicable law to use such technology. You will find information on your right to object to this processing of your data below under Rights as a data subject.

SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password- and firewall-protected) servers.

YOUR RIGHTS
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Please read the list attentively below to find out more about these rights:

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). The access request enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you. 

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This right enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new information you provide to us. 

Request erasure of your personal data. This right enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason to continue to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons, which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing your personal data where we rely on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party), and there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object whenever we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This right enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:

● If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.

● Where our use of the data is unlawful, but you do not want us to erase it.

● You need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

● You have objected to our use of your data, but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it. 

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or a third party. We will provide you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Please note that this right only applies to automated information that you initially provided consent for us to use or in the circumstances when we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us at zach.kendall@joolca.com.au.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. 

What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or exercise any other rights). The identity check is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to anyone who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information concerning your request to speed up our response.

Time limit to respond.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one week. Occasionally it could take us longer than a week if your request is particularly complex or you have made several requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. 

The above rights may be limited in some circumstances, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal personal information about another person, if you ask us to delete information which we are required to have by law, or if we have compelling legitimate interests to keep it. We will let you know if that is the case and will then only use your information for these purposes. You may also be unable to continue using our services if you want us to stop processing your personal information.

If you have any general questions or want to exercise any of your rights, please contact zach.kendall@joolca.com.au. Our security procedures mean that we may need to request proof of identity before disclosing personal information to you in response to any request.
