Definition of: “Personal information” is considered information or an opinion (including information or an opinion forming part of a database), whether true or not, and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an individual whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information or opinion.

Information Collection – Primary Purpose

Personal information that we collect and hold is information that is reasonably necessary for the proper performance of our functions and activities as an employment agent / on-hire provider, and is likely to differ depending on whether you are a Workseeker (candidate / contractor), a Customer (client), or a Referee.

We collect personal information to the extent that it is:

1. Necessary for us to carry out our core business activities;

2. Incidental to the carrying out of our core business activities;

3. Customers personal information used in accordance with client contracts / requirements; or

4. Necessary to match your details to job opportunities and keep you informed of other opportunities and/or contract assignments which may from time to time be of interest to you, where you have chosen to access the Finite website to apply for a job opportunity or provide further personal information.

Personal information will generally only be collected for the purpose of enabling us to liaise with individuals who are, or who are associated with, customers, potential customers, candidates, contractors or referees or for assessing your job application and/or suitability for other opportunities and contract engagements which we think may be of interest.

The types of personal information which we may collect and hold in these circumstances include, without limitation, an individual’s name, address, phone number, email address and other contact details.

We may collect personal information from you in a variety of ways including, without limitation, on forms, questionnaires and surveys, by our website (including cookie collection), over the telephone, or person to person.

Sometimes we collect information from third parties and publicly available sources when it is necessary for a specific purpose such as checking information that you have given us or where you have consented or would reasonably expect us to collect your personal information in this way. Such information is stored in secure electronic files on Finite’s internal systems.

Information use and disclosure

We will not use or disclose personal information that we collect for any purpose other than the primary purpose of collection unless:

1. Such use is related to the primary purpose and you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose the information for that purpose;

2. In the case of direct marketing not related to our activities – we have obtained your prior consent (unless it is not reasonably practicable to seek your consent and we otherwise comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act) and you have not since requested we cease direct marketing to you; or

3. The use or disclosure is otherwise permitted under the Privacy Act.

We might, from time to time, let you know – including via mail, SMS, email, telephone or online – about news, special offers, products and services that you might be interested in. We will use your personal information to engage in marketing unless you tell us otherwise. You can contact us via the details set out below to update your marketing preferences at any time.
