Protecting your personal information

Polytrade Recycling will take reasonable steps to protect the personal information Polytrade Recycling holds from misuse, interference, loss and unauthorised activity.

Accessing and correcting your personal information

Subject to certain grounds for refusal set out in the Act (or, where applicable to our business with you, State and Territory privacy legislation), you have the right to access your personal information that Polytrade Recycling holds in a manner that is reasonable and practicable and to request a correction to your personal information.

Before you exercise this right, Polytrade Recycling will need evidence to confirm that you are the individual to whom the personal information relates or a person who is authorised to make a request on their behalf. In respect of a request for correction, if Polytrade Recycling is satisfied that the information is incorrect and Polytrade Recycling is reasonably able to change the personal information, Polytrade Recycling will make the correction. If Polytrade Recycling does not make the correction, Polytrade Recycling will take reasonable steps to note on the personal information that you believe the personal information is incorrect and requested the correction.

If you want to exercise either of the above rights, you can contact Polytrade Recycling by email at the address listed here. Your email should provide evidence of who you are and set out the details of your request (e.g. the personal information, or the correction, that you are requesting). Polytrade Recycling will respond to your request within a reasonable period. Polytrade Recycling may charge you our reasonable costs of providing you with copies of your personal information.
