Type of personal information held by Trans-Civ
Personal information that we collect and hold usually falls into the following categories:
General information collected from visitors to our website
In general, we gather information about all our website users collectively, such as what areas users visit more frequently and what services users access the most. We only use such data anonymously and in the aggregate. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users, and how we can continually create a better overall website experience for you.
Your personal information collected on the www.transciv.com.au website
In some instances we may need specific information about you, such as name, address, email address, telephone number, etc. We will collect this information if you apply for a job or sign up for a service via our website, for example. We may also ask you for other information such as the types of jobs you are interested in and your workplace concerns in order to provide you with the best possible service and internet experience.
Purposes for which we hold personal information
We primarily hold personal information for the following:
Sensitive Information (Australia only)
Sensitive information is a special category of personal information under the Australian Privacy Act 1988. It is information or opinion about you, including membership of a professional or trade association or membership of a trade union; criminal record; health or disability, etc.
As outlined in the Australian Privacy Act, sensitive information, can, in most cases, only be disclosed with your consent.
We may disclose your personal information for the purposes for which it is primarily held or for a related secondary purpose and in some cases we may only disclose information with your consent.
We do not disclose information about your individual visits to the Trans-Civ website, or personal information that you provide, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number etc, to any outside parties, except when we believe we are under a lawful duty of care to do so.
If the position you are applying for is in a country other than Australia, by submitting your application to us, you are agreeing to your personal details being forwarded to our offices, and possibly to employers, in that country.
Management of personal information
At Trans-Civ, we train our staff to respect the confidentiality of customer information and the privacy of individuals. Trans-Civ regards breaches of your privacy very seriously and any breach will result in disciplinary action being taken, dependent upon severity.
Trans-Civ has appointed a Privacy Officer to ensure that our management of personal information is in accordance with this statement and the relevant Privacy Acts.
How do we keep personal information accurate and up to date?
Trans-Civ endeavours to ensure that the personal information it holds is accurate and up to date. We realise that information changes frequently with changes of address and other personal circumstances. We generally update your customer information over the telephone. Please advise your consultant when your personal details change.

Subject to some exceptions that are set out in the Australian National Privacy Principles you can gain access to the personal information that we hold about you.

To make a request to access your personal information, you will need to complete an application form verifying your identity and specifying what information you require. Please contact our Privacy Officer for an application form.
We will impose a moderate charge in providing access. Our Privacy Officer will discuss this with you.
