Privacy Policy

At Canon Information Systems Research Australia Pty Ltd ("CiSRA"), we recognise the importance of your privacy. We are committed to protecting personal information which we hold. This privacy policy describes how we manage your personal information and safeguard your privacy when you submit personal information through any part of CiSRA's websites (collectively referred to as the ("Site"). If you are required to submit personal information to CiSRA through other means, you will be provided with specific privacy terms that apply to the collection, use and disclosure of such information.

1. Australian Privacy Principles

We are bound by the Australian Privacy Principles ("APP") and will comply with them to the extent required by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), as amended from time to time.

2. Collecting and holding your personal information

We only collect personal information directly from you in the communications you send to us. By providing us with your personal information, you warrant that such information is accurate, up to date and complete, and that you will notify us when this is no longer the case. The type of personal information we collect and hold depends on the information required on any part of the Site. For example, we may ask for your email address if you access some of our downloadable material on the Site. Generally, the type of personal information we collect includes your name, email address and contact details. All personal information collected is held within CISRA and is only disclosed in the limited circumstances set out below, unless we advise you otherwise. Any personal information collected is destroyed or de-identified once the information is no longer required for the purpose it was collected, unless we are required by law to retain the information. Some of the information we collect may not be personal information because it would not reveal your identity. We do not collect personal information without your knowledge.

3. Using and disclosing your personal information

We will use any personal information collected from you to provide you with information that you request from us about our company.

Some of the Site may require the collection of certain personal information depending on the webpage. However, the collection of such information will only take place if you decide to provide it to us by completing any applicable forms. For example, our employment webpage collects information about your qualifications and work history when you apply for a vacant position. This information will only be used to evaluate your potential employment with CiSRA. You should refer to any applicable privacy statements regarding those webpages for more details on how the information will be used.

If you do not provide the personal information requested by CiSRA, we may not be able to provide you with the information you have requested, process your employment application or provide you with relevant products or services, as applicable.

We refer some of our functions to external service providers and contractors. If required by the nature of your request or communications with us, we may disclose your personal information to these service providers but only so that they can provide the services that we have contracted out to them regarding your request.

4. Access to and correction of your personal information

You may request access to the personal information that we hold about you by contacting us in writing via the contact details below. We will deal with such requests within 30 days after receiving your request. If your request for access is granted, we will give you access in the manner requested by you if it is reasonable to do so. However, we may refuse to give you access to personal information that we hold about you in circumstances where giving you access:

  • would have an unreasonable impact on other people's privacy;
  • would prejudice negotiations we are having with you;
  • would prejudice an investigation of unlawful activity; or
  • would prejudice activities carried out by, or for, a law enforcement agency.

This list is not exhaustive and there are other circumstances that would permit us to refuse access in accordance with the APPs.

You may request that we correct personal information we hold about you by contacting us in writing via the contact details below. If your request is granted, or if we are otherwise satisfied that correction is necessary having regard to the purpose for which the information is held, we will take all reasonable steps to correct your personal information to ensure that it is accurate, complete, up to date, relevant and not misleading. We will respond to your request for correction within 30 days after receiving your request. If we decide not to make the correction you have requested, you may ask that we include a statement of your requested correction with the personal information held.

If we refuse to give you access to personal information we hold about you, to give you access in the manner requested by you, or if we refuse to correct your personal information, we will provide you with written reasons (unless it would be unreasonable to do so), and the complaint mechanisms available to you regarding the refusal.

5. What to do if you would like more information about how we manage your personal information or wish to complain about a breach of the APPs.

Any complaints regarding a breach of the APPs with respect to your personal information, or queries about how we manage your personal information should be made in writing to the postal or email address below.

Postal address:

   Legal Officer

  • a brief description of the incident giving rise to your privacy complaint;

  • copies of any relevant documents or supporting information;
  • the resolution you are seeking.

We will attempt to deal with your complaint within a reasonable time and will keep you up-to-date with its progress. Possible resolutions may include closing your complaint, changes to our privacy procedures, or other remedies, as appropriate in the circumstances.

6. Changes to our privacy policy

We may change our privacy policy or privacy statements at any time and we will notify you of the changes by posting an updated version on our Site with an updated revision number. You accept any changes to our privacy policy or privacy statements by continuing to use our Site.
