Visy Group may disclose personal information about an individual to a third party in a foreign country for the purposes outlined above, including, without limitation, its IT service providers based in India and the Philippines, where:
- Visy Group reasonably believes that the recipient is subject to a law binding scheme or contract which effectively upholds principles of fair handling of the information that are similar to the principles set out in the Privacy Act;
- Visy Group has taken reasonable steps to ensure that the information, which we have transferred will not be held, used or disclosed by the recipient of the information inconsistently with the principles set out in the Privacy Act;
- the individual has consented to the transfer;
- the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract with the individual or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken in response to the individual's request; or
- the transfer is for the benefit of the individual, it is impracticable to obtain the consent of the individual to that transfer; and if it were practicable to obtain such consent, the individual would be likely to give it.
On request by a person Visy Group will take reasonable steps to let the person know, generally, what sort of personal information it holds, for what purposes and how it collects, holds and uses and discloses that information. Visy Group will only deny a request for access or limit access where permitted under the Privacy Act.
If an individual can establish that personal information held by Visy Group about the individual is not accurate, complete and up to date, Visy will take reasonable steps to correct the information.
Unless advised to the contrary Visy Group assumes that individuals who provide personal information to Visy Group consent to the management of such information in accordance with this policy.
Visy Group reserves the right to modify this policy from time to time without notice and amendments will be effective immediately upon posting the amended policy to our website.
