At HCM Australia we take your privacy seriously. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is respected and maintained at all times. We adhere to the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 (the Privacy Act), which directs the way private sector organisations deal with personal information as well as our existing obligations of confidentiality.
This Privacy Statement explains how we collect personal information and how we maintain, use and disclose that information.
Personal information is any information or an opinion (whether true or not) about a person. It may range from the very sensitive (e.g. criminal record) to the everyday (e.g. address and phone number). It would include the opinions of others about our candidates' work performance (whether true or not), work experience and qualifications, aptitude test results and other information obtained by us in connection with possible work placements.
In some circumstances, we may also collect sensitive information about you such as information about your membership of a professional or trade association or trade union; your health (including any disability), your racial or ethnic origin or any criminal record that you may have. Where we collect this type of information we will obtain your consent.
Your personal and sensitive information will be collected by HCM Australia for its own use and on behalf of its clients who require access to your personal and sensitive information in connection with your employment opportunities. Some laws - e.g. employment agents' law, taxation law and immigration law, might require us to collect certain personal and sensitive information.
If at any time you have a question or concern regarding HCM Australia and privacy, please contact us.
