visitors to our website.
This GDPR Addendum was drafted to be concise and easy to understand. It does not outline in
exhaustive detail all aspects of our collection and use of personal data. If you wish to have more

with our legal obligations; or (d) the processing is actually necessary for our legitimate interests,

investigated; (iii) to evaluate, develop or improve products and services we offer; or (iv) to keep you
informed of relevant products and services, unless you indicate that you do not wish us to be kept
updated. While we will generally rely on your specific consent to process special categories of
personal data (i.e., ‘sensitive information’), in some cases (for example, relating to an alleged
offence), we may need to use some information to comply with our legal obligations.
It is possible to use access and use our website without providing us with data. However some of

status is not granted to us, we may transfer the personal data, so long as there are suitable
party data processors in other countries, including Australia. We will only transfer this data outside
the EEA if that country has been given the adequacy status mentioned above, or if we have
approved transfer instruments set up to protect your personal data. If you wish to know more, please
We will only keep personal information for as long as is needed to achieve its purpose, or to comply
