The protection of personal information in the private sector is required by the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1988 (the “Act”). All employees and officers of Leighton Contractors Pty Ltd (“Leighton Contractors”, or “we” or “us”) are expected to comply with the Act and Leighton Contractors policies and procedures concerning the protection of personal information.
This policy applies to all our web pages at or accessible from www.leightoncontractors.com.au and www.leightoncontractors.co.nz (the “Website”). It explains our practices with regards to collection and processing of any personal information (that is, information from which an individual’s identity is apparent or can be reasonably ascertained) that may be collected as a result of your use of the Website.
This policy is based on the following principles:
• your personal information will not be shared other than in accordance with this policy, with your permission or in accordance with the Act;
• we will only use your personal information for the purpose for which it was provided.
What information do we collect?
The Website may allow you to contact certain individuals within Leighton Contractors and related companies by sending them email, for the purpose of:
• subscribing or unsubscribing to newsletters and media releases;
• providing feedback about the Website;
• requesting general information;
• submitting your resume;
• making a general enquiry.
By sending such e-mails, you will be providing us with certain personal information, which may include your name, email address and any other details you include in your email. This information is collected by us solely for the purpose of considering your application or dealing with your request. We may not be able to consider your application or deal with your request without this information.
We do not collect any other information via the Website.
What do we use personal information for?
Unless you agree otherwise, any personal details that you provide to us as a result of accessing the Website and sending us e-mails will only be used for the purpose of dealing with your request or enquiry. We do not use or disclose personal details that you provide to us for the purposes of direct marketing or any similar purposes.
Disclosing Personal Information
As noted above, we may share personal information on a confidential basis with related companies and with contractors performing services for Leighton Contractors. Such contractors may include, for example, information technology and telecommunications providers or professional advisers (including accountants, auditors and lawyers), credit reporting and fraud checking agencies, insurers, human resources consultants and credit providers. Leighton Contractors will only make such disclosures to achieve the purpose for which the information was provided. Otherwise, Leighton Contractors policy is not to disclose any personal information to any unrelated third party, except with consent or where we are permitted by law to do so.
If you submit a resume to us then we may disclose the resume to related companies, joint venture and alliance partners (see “Disclosing Personal Information” above). Leighton Contractors will only make such disclosures for the purpose of us and our related companies, joint venture and alliance partners considering your application. We and our related companies, joint ventures and alliance partners may keep your resume on file indefinitely for that purpose. If you consent, we may also disclose information about you for the purpose of undertaking background checks.
In line with our policy and email security, any e-mails that you send will be automatically scanned, which could result in certain attachments and styles of message being automatically blocked. Our IT administrators may have access to your e-mails in order to authorise the content. This is done purely for IT security purposes and our IT administrators will not access the content of your e-mails once this process is complete.
