The primary purpose of collecting this information is to ensure that we can assess risks to individuals who provide (paid or unpaid) services where they may work consistent with health and safety obligations. The secondary purpose is to ensure that we can continue to provide services if restrictions are imposed.
In most cases, we collect personal and sensitive information about you directly from you, through various contact methods such as by telephone, facsimile, email and mail, or when you complete forms, incident reports, transact with us or provide further information through our website or mobile device application. We may also collect personal information about you from the following third parties: government agencies, publicly available records, service providers, parties to whom you refer us or from whom you authorise collection, online searches and social media.
