Zinfra Group takes your privacy very seriously
This Privacy Statement applies to SPI (Australia) Assets Pty Ltd (ABN 60 126 327 624) and its wholly owned subsidiaries trading as Zinfra Group (together, "Zinfra"). It is subject to change from time to time. This Privacy Statement explains in general terms how we protect the privacy of your Personal Information. In reviewing this Privacy Statement, you consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information in the manner set out below, unless you tell us otherwise.
Our compliance obligations and commitment
We are bound by the National Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cwlth) (as amended by the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 (Cwlth)) and all other applicable privacy legislation (“Privacy Laws”), and are committed to conducting our operations in full compliance with the Privacy Laws and protecting the privacy of your “personal information”. Personal information is any information which identifies you as an individual, or from which your identity can reasonably be ascertained, such as your name, address, telephone number or date of birth.
Collection of your personal information
Personal information that we may collect about you includes your name, address and contact details and energy usage.
We will only collect personal information that is necessary for our functions or activities. For example we may be authorised by an energy client:
- to collect your name, address and contact details to connect or maintain your supply; and
- details about your energy usage in order for our energy client to offer you incentive rebates.
We will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are aware of the purposes for which we collect your personal information. We will only collect sensitive information with your consent or as otherwise allowed by the Privacy Laws. We will try to collect personal information directly from you. We will only collect personal information about you by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way.
Use and disclosure of your personal information
We will use or disclose your personal information for the main purpose for which we collect the information and any related purpose where you would reasonably expect this use or disclosure. We may also use or disclose your personal information for a purpose other than the main purpose of collection with your consent, or as otherwise allowed by the Privacy Laws (such as in emergency situations, to prevent unlawful activity and to assist law enforcement agencies). We may disclose your personal information to, for example:
- the owners or financiers of our projects;
- related companies;
- entities to whom we provide services (including non-related asset owners);
- parties that provide credit card payment authorisations and merchant and payment facilities;
- third party service providers (for example, legal and financial advisers, meter readers, and contractors providing gas or electricity installation, repair and emergency maintenance services);
- retailers of gas, electricity and water; gas and electricity market administrators;
- regulatory or government authorities; and
- other public authorities (including in relation to land titles).
If we collect your personal information for the purpose of informing you of our products, services and benefits, we will not use your information for this purpose if you opt out of receiving marketing communications from us.
Protection of your personal information
We will take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure; and destroy or permanently de-identify your personal information if it is no longer needed for any purpose for which the information may be used or disclosed.
Access to, and correction of, your personal information
