5. HOW DO WE STORE AND HOLD PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We store most information about you in computer systems and databases operated by either us or our external service providers.
We implement and maintain processes and security measures to protect personal information which we hold from misuse, interference or loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Processes including taking steps to restrict access to databases, maintaining firewalls, encrypting data, using secure servers in controlled facilities and only allowing access by those entrusted with authority and computer network passwords. We also require all employees to comply with information security policies and attend training. In addition, we monitor and regularly review our practices against industry best practice.
We will also take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify personal information once we no longer require it for the purposes for which it was collected or for any secondary purpose permitted under the APPs.
However, the internet is not a secure environment and no computer system is perfectly secure. Although all care is taken, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided to us. This means that there is always a risk that your personal information may be accessed or used without authorisation.
6. WHO DO WE DISCLOSE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO, AND WHY?
We may transfer or disclose your personal information to our related companies.
We may disclose personal information to external service providers (including IT service providers, auditors, legal advisors, mail houses and our share registrar) so that they may perform services for us or on our behalf.
We may also disclose your personal information to others outside our group of companies where:
(a) we are required or authorised by law to do so;
(b) you may have expressly consented to the disclosure or the consent may be reasonably inferred from the circumstances; or
