Security of your personal information
We have implemented steps which we consider reasonably appropriate to protect your personal information from misuse, interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

(Principle 12 – Access to Personal Information; Principle 13 – Correction of Personal Information), you have a right to see and have a copy of personal and sensitive information about you that we hold.
If you discover that personal or sensitive information that we hold about you is not accurate, complete and up-to-date, we will take reasonable steps to correct it so that it is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
If we are unable to agree that personal or sensitive information that we hold about you is accurate, complete and up-to-date, you may ask us to place with the information a statement by you that claims that particular information is not accurate, complete and up-to-date.
In some cases we may impose a moderate charge for providing access to personal or sensitive information. We will not charge you simply because you lodge a request for access.
