EndureGo is committed to providing quality services to you and this policy outlines our ongoing obligations to you in respect of how we manage your Personal Information.
We have adopted the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act). The NPPs govern the way in which we collect, use, disclose, store, secure and dispose of your Personal Information.
A copy of the Australian Privacy Principles may be obtained from the website of The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner at www.aoic.gov.au
What is Personal Information and why do we collect it?
Personal Information is information or an opinion that identifies an individual. Examples of Personal Information we collect include names, addresses, email addresses, phone and facsimile numbers.
This Personal Information is obtained in many ways including [interviews, correspondence, by telephone, by email, via our Cognito Form platform, from your website, from media and publications, from other publicly available sources] and from third parties. We don’t guarantee website links or the policy of authorised third parties.
We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you. We may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When we collect Personal Information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.
Sensitive information is defined in the Privacy Act to include information or opinion about such things as an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a trade union or other professional body, criminal record or health information.
Sensitive information will be used by us only:
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your Personal Information only from you. However, in some circumstances, we may be provided with information by third parties. In such a case we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Your Personal Information may be disclosed in a number of circumstances including the following:
Security of Personal Information
Your Personal Information is stored in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse and loss and from unauthorized access, modification or disclosure.
When your Personal Information is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was obtained and for our compliance and record keeping purpose, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your Personal Information. However, most of the Personal Information is or will be stored in client files which will be kept by us for a minimum of 5 years.
If you had engaged an accounting service with us, and did not paid us after the 60 days, and you had failed to respond to us, after we had provided a written notice to inform you that we will report to the credit reporting body, then those outstanding amount will become credit to us, as such, then we may disclose your personal information to, or collect personal information about you from a CRB. This is because CRBs are allowed to handle personal information relating to credit under the Privacy Act and the CR Code.
Notice of Intent to disclose
We will send a written notice (letter) if we plan to disclose your business’ tax debt.
The notice will tell you:
1. about our intent to report your tax debt information to CRBs
2. that you meet the criteria for reporting
3. the information we intend to report to the CRBs
4. what steps you can take to avoid your debt information being reported
5. that you have 28 days from receiving the notice to take the necessary action.
For example, we may register with the CRBs any of the following information:
Note: some lenders may refuse you credit if your credit report shows too many enquiries or credit defaults.
