Purpose of this Policy
This Policy applies to:
a) Solv as collectors and users of personal information, and
b) Solv directors, officers, employees, consultants, contractors and any other parties acting as representatives or agents of Solv, as well as external parties (such as customers, service providers, shareholders and job applicants) who provide personal information to Solv
Sources of legal obligations
The sources of legal obligations behind this Policy include Australia’s Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and the Australian Privacy Principles contained in that Act, and privacy laws in the countries in which Solv conducts business. To the extent that the applicable laws of a country in which Solv operates conflict with or impose a higher standard than this Policy, the applicable laws must be complied with.
What sort of information do we collect?
We collect information, including personal information about you that is relevant to our business relationship with you or your employer, which are obtained via our online systems. For example, we may collect an individual’s name, contact details, phone number and details directly related to injury, safety or health related matters.
Employee Records exemption
In certain countries, for example Australia, personal information regarding current or former employees that relates to their employment may be exempted from the requirements of the relevant privacy laws. To the extent permitted by law, Solv may rely on these exemptions. If you become our employee, the personal information provided to us during the recruitment process will become part of your employee record and this Policy will not apply to the extent that we use the information in relation to your employment with us.
How do we collect personal information?
How do we use personal information?
We use personal information to enable us to provide our services to our clients. You may opt out of receiving marketing communications from us at any time, by following the opt out instructions provided in such marketing communications. We will not use your personal information for any other purpose unless you consent to such use by us, such uses as are disclosed to you when we collect the information or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
Do we disclose personal information to others?
Personal or sensitive information may be disclosed but only to directly support the management of your injury, safety or health case in the provision of our services to our clients.
What do we do to keep personal information secure?
The Personal Information is stored in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse and loss and from unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. This includes, but is not limited to, Australian based web and database servers, one-way encrypted passwords, encryption of personally identifiable information and the use of the highest level of SSL encryption for data in transit.
Is the personal information up-to-date?
We endeavour to make sure that the personal information which we hold is accurate, complete and up-to-date. If we are notified that the information we hold is not accurate, complete or up-to-date, we will take steps to validate the information and ensure that it is corrected, if necessary, or note the requested changes to the information. If you believe that the personal information that we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate you may request amendment of it by contacting our customer support in writing at the following email address: email@example.com. If we do not make the correction sought, you may request that there be an attachment to the information that states the correction was sought but not made.
What do we do with personal information when it is no longer needed?
When your Personal Information is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was obtained, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your Personal Information. However, most of the Personal Information related to workplace injuries must be kept for the life of a person so information is rarely destroyed. When an organisation is no longer a client of ours then their data will be securely deleted.
Do we allow access to personal information?
In most circumstances we allow you to access the personal information we hold about you and to update and/or correct it, subject to certain exceptions. To protect your Personal Information, we will require identification from you before releasing such information. However, access may be denied where we are permitted or required by law to deny access to such information. If we refuse to provide you with access to your personal information, we will generally provide you with reasons for the refusal. If we do not hold the personal information you request, you will generally be informed in writing.
What is our procedure for handling privacy inquiries or complaints?
