National Privacy Principles
We have adopted the National Privacy Principles (NPPs) 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 Federal Privacy Commissioner at www.privacy.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, and phone numbers.
This personal information is obtained in many ways, including interviews, correspondence, by telephone and email, via our website toaglobal.com, from other publicly available sources, from cookies 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, providing information to our clients and marketing. 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 simply clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of an email sent to you from us.
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:
- For the primary purpose for which it was obtained
- For a secondary purpose that is directly related to the primary purpose
- With your consent; or where required or authorised by law
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 from 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.

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.

However, most of the personal information is or will be stored in client files, which will be kept by us for a minimum of 7 years.
