Collection of information
We usually collect personal information about individuals directly from those individuals or their authorised representative.
We sometimes collect personal information from a third party or from a publicly available source, but only if the individual has consented to such collection or would reasonably expect us to collect their personal information in this way.
Cardinal Bioresearch Pty Ltd will only collect information that is used to conduct our business functions or activities.
This includes details such as:
Name, title and position description
Business address, business phone, fax and e-mail
Personal data/interests related to specialised marketing & customer loyalty programs
Personal information that is not required for business or would be inappropriate is not collected.
Sensitive information or government identifiers are not collected or recorded.
Use and disclosure
We only use information for the purposes for which we collected it – purposes which are directly related to one of our functions or activities.
Information will not be disclosed to another organisation within the same or any industry for commercial use.
Customer information may be disclosed to a third party (usually another customer) as a reference or to assist in technical support or service issues.
Customer information may be disclosed to a third party in cases where:
Cardinal Bioresearch Pty Ltd has the consent of the customer concerned
Cardinal Bioresearch Pty Ltd is required by law or legal process to make the disclosure
Disclosure will occur only upon verbal agreement with the customer whose records are concerned.
We take steps to protect the personal information we hold against loss, unauthorised access, use, modification or disclosure, and against other misuse.
The security of the data is ensured through implementation of the following:
Prevention of loss of data through documented back-up procedures
Prevention of data being stolen through isolation and daily lock-up of all electronic records
Prevention of hacking – no external connection to server. All external communications occur through a router equipped with a firewall
Prevention of manipulation of data – all access to customer data through either our customer relationship management database or our accounting database are password protected. The database managers can view all changes and who made them.
When the personal information that we collect is no longer required, we destroy or delete it in a secure manner.
On request, this document outlining information handling will be available to any customer or person whose records are held by Cardinal Bioresearch Pty Ltd.
You have the right to view any personal information that we hold about you and you can ask us to correct the personal information we hold about you. This does not include sales history or information which may directly affect future sales negotiations.
