Privacy Policy

Sitemax Group Pty Ltd


Sitemax Group Pty Ltd and its related companies(referred to in this document as we, us or our) recognise that your privacy is important and we are committed to protecting the personal information we collect from you. The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act), Australian Privacy Principles and registered privacy codes govern the way in which we must manage your personal information. This policy sets out how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise manage your personal information.


Types of information collected

We may collect and hold personal information about you, that is, information that can identify you, and is relevant to providing you with the services or products you are seeking. The kinds of information we typically collect include name, address, phone number, facsimile number, email address, bank account details, place and type of business or other information relevant to providing you with the services or products you are, or someone else you know is, seeking.

If you apply for services or products from us, we may also collect and hold various information related to you and your financial position, including credit information or credit eligibility information about you. Our separate Credit Reporting Policy sets out how we deal with that information.

Method of collection

Personal information will generally be collected directly from you through the use of any of our standard forms, over the internet, via email, or through a telephone conversation with you. We may also collect personal information about you from third parties acting on your behalf.

There may, however, be some instances where personal information about you will be collected indirectly because it is unreasonable or impractical to collect personal information directly from you. We will usually notify you about these instances in advance, or where that is not possible, as soon as reasonably practicable after the information has been collected.

Purpose of collection

The personal information that we collect and hold about you, depends on your interaction with us. Generally, we collect, use and hold your personal information for the purposes of:

  1. providing services or products to you or someone else you know;
  2. processing your orders;
  3. sending you information and updates relating to you order;
  4. sending you occasional company news, updates, related product or service information;
  5. providing you with information about other services or products that we offer that may be of interest to you;
  6. administering a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature;
  7. providing you with information relevant to your type of business or other area of expertise or interest;
  8. responding to and managing your queries;
  9. sending you our newsletter when you subscribe to receive our newsletter;
  10. facilitating our internal business operations, including the fulfilment of any legal requirements;
  11. requesting feedback from you so that we can improve our website;
  12. analysing our services, products and customer needs with a view to improving those services and products; and
  13. contacting you to provide a testimonial for us.

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

Failure to provide information

If the personal information you provide to us is incomplete or inaccurate, we may be unable to provide you, or someone else you know, with the services or products you, or they, are seeking.


We store your personal information in different ways, including in paper and in electronic form. The security of your personal information is important to us. We take reasonable measures to ensure that your personal information is stored safely to protect it from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, interference, modification or disclosure, including electronic and physical security measures.

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.

Use and disclosure

  1. our related entities to facilitate our and their internal business processes;
  2. third party services providers who assist us in operating our business (including technology service providers) and these service providers may not be required to comply with our privacy policy; and
  3. our related entities and other organisations with whom we have affiliations so that those organisations may provide you with information about services and various promotions.

We do not sell or trade your personal information. We may provide unidentified information to third parties for marketing or advertising purposes.

We are not likely to disclose your personal information overseas.

In some circumstances, the law may permit or require us to use or disclose personal information for other purposes (for instance where you would reasonably expect us to and the purpose is related to the purpose of collection).

Access and correction

You may request access to personal information we hold about you, by making a written request. We will respond to your request within a reasonable period. We may charge you a reasonable fee for processing your request (but not for making a request for access).

We may decline a request for access to personal information in circumstances prescribed by the Privacy Act, and if we do, we will provide you with a written notice that sets out the reasons for the refusal (unless it would be unreasonable to provide those reasons)

If, upon receiving access to your personal information, or at any other time, you believe the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date, please notify us immediately. We take reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up to date.

If we refuse to correct your personal information, we will provide you with a written notice that sets out the reasons for our refusal (unless it would be unreasonable to provide those reasons) and provide you with a statement regarding the mechanisms available to you to make a complaint.
