Personal Information refers to information or an opinion that identifies an individual. Examples of Personal Information we collect may include names, addresses, email addresses, and phone/facsimile numbers.
We collect Personal Information through various means, such as interviews, correspondence, telephone/facsimile, email, our website termitechoices.com.au, your website, media and publications, publicly available sources, cookies, and third parties. We cannot guarantee the website links or policies of authorised third parties.
The primary purpose of collecting your Personal Information is to provide our services to you, offer information to our clients, and engage in marketing activities. In certain circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure, we may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose. You have the option to unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing.
When we collect Personal Information, we will explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it, whenever appropriate and possible.

We will only use sensitive information:
For the primary purpose for which it was obtained.
For a secondary purpose directly related to the primary purpose.
With your consent, or where required or authorised by law.
We strive to collect your Personal Information directly from you whenever reasonable and practicable. However, in certain circumstances, we may receive information from third parties. In such cases, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are aware of the information provided to us by the third party.
We may disclose your Personal Information in the following circumstances:
We store your Personal Information in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification, or disclosure.
When your Personal Information is no longer necessary for the purpose it was obtained, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify it. However, most Personal Information is or will be stored in client files, which we retain for a minimum of 7 years.
Subject to certain exceptions, you have the right to access, update, and correct the Personal Information we hold about you. If you wish to access your Personal Information, please contact us in writing.
There will be no fee charged for accessing your Personal Information; however, an administrative fee may apply for providing a copy of your Personal Information.
To protect your Personal Information, we may request identification from you before releasing the requested information.
