Compliance with the Privacy Act

Haben is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act).

To enable Haben to deliver the best possible service to you, its clients, suppliers, service providers, contractors and customers, it is necessary for Haben to collect personal information (i.e. information that can identify a person) about individuals. The type of personal information that is collected will be determined by nature of the relationship between Haben and an individual.

At the time personal information is collected, Haben will take reasonable steps to inform individuals about the purpose for which the information is collected, the customers' right to access the information and other matters contemplated in the Australian Privacy Principles regulating collection of personal information.

What is Personal Information?

Personal information is information about a person whose identity is apparent from the information, and includes identifiers such as the individuals name, email address, postal address, phone number, gender, social media information and profile, (collectively, “Personal Information”).

How do we collect your Personal Information?

Personal information can be collected by Haben in a number of ways, including email, via any of our online services or mobile services, in person, by phone or by fax or via video and camera surveillance systems for security purposes.

(a) Collection of Personal Information from third parties

Haben from time to time collects Personal Information from third parties, such as:

- Public sources of information (such as telephone directories)

- People authorised by you if required (such as lawyers or law enforcement agencies)

- Recruitment Agencies for the purposes of introducing to us future employee prospects

- Real Estate Agents for the purpose of assisting both parties to engage in a potential commercial sale or lease of one or more of our properties or spaces

- Retailers within our retail properties and law enforcement agencies for the purposes of investigating or reporting an incident.

Haben does not collect Personal Information from third parties involuntarily nor is Haben responsible for the protection of your Personal Information held by third parties.

What Personal Information about you does Haben collect and when do we collect it?

The information we gather from you helps us to continually improve your experience with Haben.  This personal information may include: your name and contact information; date of birth; preferred communication methods; business name and business address. 

In certain circumstances, we may collect additional Personal information such as your home address, age, emergency contact, car registration, health insurance details, education and qualifications, bank details and/or credit details and associated information.

We do not knowingly ask for Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18 (a "Child") without the consent from a Parent or Legal Guardian.  Personal Information relating to a child under the age of 18 is collected only when a Parent or Legal Guardian has provided consent for us to enter the person in competitions we hold or conduct, or for incident reporting purposes.  

If a Child submits Personal Information to us and we know that the person providing the information is a Child, we will not use it for any purpose.  We will take all reasonable steps to destroy that information as soon as we discover it and we will not disclose it to third parties. If you become aware that a Child has provided Personal Information to us via our online or mobile services, please contact our Privacy Officer, (details provided at the end of this policy).

While Haben's policy prohibits children under 18 from registering with our online and mobile services, parents should supervise their children's online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment.

These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address and other Personal Information without parental permission.
