Access and Correction
The Company will take reasonable steps to ensure that all personal information it holds is accurate, complete and up to date.
Individuals have the right to seek access to the personal information which is held about them and to ask for correction if they consider it to be inaccurate, incomplete or out of date. The Company realises it is important to individuals to be able to control their personal details. Should an individual wish to find out about personal information held they should contact one of the contact points listed at the end of the policy.
In the first instance the Company will generally provide the individual with a summary of the information held about them. The Company will assume (unless told otherwise) that the request relates to current records. These current records may include personal information on its databases and in paper files, which may be used by the Company on a day to day basis.
To provide access to personal information the Company would ordinarily provide a printout of the relevant personal information from its database or photocopies of records that are held on paper files. If the personal information e.g. name and address is duplicated across different databases the Company will generally provide one print out of this information rather than multiple printouts. Ordinarily the Company will not charge for the cost of providing access to this type of record.
For legal and administration purposes the Company may also store records containing personal information in its archives. An individual may seek to access non-current records held by the Company. In that case the Company may charge for the cost of providing access.
An individual may complain if they believe the Company has breached any of the Australian Privacy Principles. They may do so at first instance by contacting one of the contact points at the bottom of this document. Any complaint will be investigated and the Company will subsequently respond to the individual.
Security of information
The Company will take reasonable steps to protect an individual’s personal information whether collected on line or by other means. For on line information, technology such as encryption, access, control procedures, firewalls and physical security will be used. For information held in paper files reasonable steps will be taken to ensure that only authorised personnel have access to the information. Where information is stored on machines, the Company will ensure that the information is removed prior to disposal of the machine.
Investors /Shareholders in the Group
Boardroom should be contacted if a shareholder has a complaint about privacy, would like details of the personal information held or would like to correct it. For shareholder protection, Boardroom’s internal procedures must be satisfied before they will disclose personal information. If a shareholder/investor is not satisfied by Boardroom’s response to their concern they should contact the AVJennings Company Secretary.
The Company has outsourced its Singaporean Share registry function to the Central Depository (Pte) Ltd (CDP) in Singapore. The shareholders on this registry are predominantly Singapore based. The CDP’s policy is to only disclose personal information on individual shareholders to the Company or to the individual shareholder concerned. Apart from the above, the Company would not normally disclose information to an overseas recipient.
This policy was issued on 6 May 2014.
