Personal information may be shared with our agents or contractors in relation to the purposes described above. We take reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.
It may be necessary for us to share your personal information to respond to subpoenas, court orders or other requests relating to court proceedings, or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

Under the Privacy Act 1993 you have rights of access to and correction of personal information that we hold. You may opt out of any further contact from us.
To protect your privacy and the privacy of others, we may have to verify that you are who you say you are before we can give you access to, or change, information about you.
