‘Personal information’ has a broad definition and may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, phone number or email address – basically any information that will identify you.

If you provide your personal information, we may collect and manage it in our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system as described on this page, unless we tell you otherwise when we collect your personal information.

We may ask you to provide information that includes personal information when we contact you, for example, if you:

  • request a service, submit an enquiry or seek feedback
  • respond to our questions
  • apply to receive information

The personal information you provide will be stored in our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. This information will not be shared.
