MDN Consulting Pty Ltd is committed to ensuring that your personal information is handled responsibly, in accordance with the Privacy laws, including the National Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
Collecting Your Personal Information
The Policy relates to personal information collected by any means. It is MDN’s usual practice to collect this personal information directly from you. However, often your personal information is collected through the use of MDN’s website or in response to MDN’s printed and online advertisements.
Furthermore, there may be occasions when MDN will source personal information from an external third party, or a publicly available source. If MDN does not have your prior consent, MDN will take reasonable steps to inform you that it has collected personal information from the third party.
Use of Personal Information
To assist MDN in the provision of its services, it collects your personal information. MDN may collect personal information from you so that MDN can:
- Assist you in finding or retaining work;
- Assist in your career performance, management or transition;
- Analyse human resource and labour markets;
- Develop tests and assessments in order to place you in appropriate roles.
Generally, the personal information MDN collects about you may include the information that you place in your job application or resume, for example, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, career history, details of any competency tests or other information relating to your career.
As a general rule, MDN does not collect sensitive information about you. However, in circumstances where MDN requires sensitive information from you for the purpose of providing our services to you, or if the law requires MDN to provide such information, MDN will first seek your consent to collect it.
For further information please see “Collection Statement for Privacy Purposes”.
Use by Third Parties
MDN may use and disclose your personal information to third parties for the purposes it was collected, or for a related or ancillary purpose such as providing you with one of our services. Accordingly, MDN may disclose your personal information to a number of third parties, including but not limited to:
- MDN’s alliance partners;
- prospective employers;
- clients who may wish to engage your services as a contractor or temporary employee;
- MDN suppliers or service providers, including organisations that conduct competency or psychometric tests on behalf of MDN;
- your nominated referees;
- any government authority, or workers compensation body;
- any law enforcement body, including the Australian Federal Police; or
- any educational or vocational organisations to the extent necessary to verify your qualifications.
If MDN discloses personal information to any third party, MDN will generally request these parties to protect such personal information in the same way that MDN does.
MDN takes reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information it collects is accurate, up to date and complete.
In circumstances where your personal information has changed please contact Mark Nicol of MDN, who will endeavour to update and correct the information. MDN may also contact you from time to time to check the information is still correct.
MDN takes reasonable steps to protect the personal information we hold from loss, unauthorised access, and misuse. The use of locks and security systems assist MDN in protecting your personal information.
Your personal information may be stored in hard copy documents, or electronically on MDN’s software or systems.
When no longer required, personal information is destroyed in a secure manner or deleted.
