The information contained in this Policy outlines how and when personal information is typically collected, stored and distributed by Knowwaste Pty Ltd and how we provide for verification and correction.
What is personal information?
The concept of ‘personal information’ is broad, and in most cases, whether or not information is personal information will be a straightforward question. However, in some cases it may not be as clear, and the answer will depend on the context and circumstances.
Where there is uncertainty, the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) encourages entities to err on the side of caution by treating the information as personal information, and handle it in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs). Knowwaste Pty Ltd complies with this standard.
How does the Privacy Act define ‘personal information’?
’Information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable:
whether the information or opinion is true or not; and
whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.’

Knowwaste Pty Ltd will only use personal information provided by you for the purposes for which it was collected.

We will not use your e-mail address for any other purpose, and will not disclose it to any third party, except if required by law or other regulation.
We do not use any external identifiers to uniquely identify our contacts. We allow anonymous interaction wherever it is practical, and do not transfer personal information internationally. We do not collect any potentially sensitive information on any person.
