PRIVACY POLICY

Cairns Taxis obides by the Australian Privacy Principles. The new legislation amendments create the Australian Privacy Principles ("APP"). APP 6 deals with use or disclosure of personal information. Under this APP 6 if you hold personal information about an individual that was collected for a particular purpose (the primary purpose), you may not (use or) disclose the information for another purpose (the secondary purpose) unless: 1. the individual has consented to the disclosure of the information (eg the individual's solicitor has provided evidence that the individual has engaged him to deal with the matter); or 2. the individual reasonably expects you to disclose information for the secondary purpose; or 3. the disclosure of the information is required or authorised by or under an Australian law or court/tribunal order (you can ask for evidence of this when the request is made); or 4. a permitted general situation exists in relation to the disclosure of the information (eg. the disclosure is necessary to lessen or prevent a serious threat to the life, health or safety of any individual or to public health or safety); or 5. you reasonably believe that the disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary for one or more enforcement related activities conducted by, or on behalf of, an enforcement body (eg. the police). If you decide to disclose the information under this last provision, you must also make a written note or record of such disclosure evidencing why you thought it was necessary to disclose the information (eg. the police said the person was wanted for robbery, breached his parole, etc).
