YES! Talent is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act). The APPs are designed to protect the confidentiality of information and the privacy of individuals by regulating the way personal information is collected, used, disclosed and managed. Personal information is, generally speaking, information or an opinion relating to an identified, or reasonably identifiable, individual.
This policy explains the types of personal information that we may collect and hold, how that information is used and with whom the information is shared. It also sets out how you can contact us if you have any queries or concerns about this information.
Why we collect personal information
We collect personal information so that we are able to effectively provide you with goods and services that we supply.
What information we collect
The types of personal information that we collect will depend on the circumstances of collection and the kind of service that you request from YES! Talent.
We may collect personal information such as your name, address, company, telephone number, job title, training history, skills and abilities, and, in some instances, sensitive information like your financial details.
When you use the internet, we collect information relating to the pages on websites that we operate which you visit.
You may in some circumstances have the option of not identifying yourself or using a pseudonym when you deal with us. However, if you choose not to provide the information we need it may affect goods and services that we supply.
How we collect information
Personal information may be collected via the website, emails or telephone conversations, online user-generated content and market research, face-to-face meetings and interviews. There may be occasions when we collect information about you from a third party, for example from a work associate who provides such information to us or from a database provided to us.
Sensitive information can be information about your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious beliefs or affiliations, philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional or trade association, membership of a trade union, sexual preferences or practices, criminal record or health.
We will not usually collect sensitive information. However, if we do, it will usually be for the purposes of providing our goods or services. We will seek your consent to collect and, (where required) use, sensitive information if required by the APPs.
How we use your personal information
We use the personal information that we collect to provide our services to you, to fulfil administrative functions associated with these services, for example billing, to enter into contracts with you and/or third parties and for marketing and client relationship purposes.
Will personal information be disclosed to third parties?
Unless otherwise stated, we may disclose your personal information to third parties for example casting directors or contractors who provide certain services to us. We or they may use your personal information to assist in supplying and improving products and services made available to you and also providing you with goods, services or promotions which may interest you and bringing these to your attention.
If we provide your personal information to a third party we will generally require that party to protect your information in the same way that we do.
We may also disclose your personal information if it is required or authorised by law, where disclosure is necessary to prevent a threat to life, health or safety, or where we are otherwise permitted by the Privacy Act.
The countries in which recipients are likely to be located include but not limited to United Kingdom and the United States.
We do not sell or license your personal information to third parties.
Access to and correction of information we hold about you
Under the APPs, you may be able to obtain a copy of the personal information that we hold about you. The APPs provide some exceptions to your rights in this regard. To make a request to access this information, please contact us in writing. We will require you to verify your identity and specify what information you require. We may charge a fee to cover the cost of verifying the application and locating, retrieving, reviewing and copying any material requested.
We endeavour to ensure that the personal information we hold about you is accurate, complete and up-to-date. Please contact YES! Talent at our contact address if you believe that the information we hold about you requires correction or is out-of-date.
We will take all reasonable precautions to safeguard your personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We use a variety of physical and electronic security measures including restricting physical access to our offices, firewalls and secure databases.
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.
