    5. When you access Our Site, We may send a “cookie” (which is a small summary file containing a unique ID number) to your computer. This enables Us to recognise your computer and greet you each time you visit Our Site without bothering you with a request to register. It also enables Us to keep track of Products and/ or Services you view so that, if you consent, We can send you news about those Products and/ or Services.

    7. In compliance with Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 (Cth), We agree that if We become aware of reasonable grounds to believe an eligible data breach has occurred, We will promptly notify the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (Commissioner), the Association of Market and Social Research Organisations (AMSRO) and the affected individuals at likely risk of serious harm.

    1. We will only keep your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes We collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

    2. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, We consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which We process your personal data and whether We can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
