Where we engage external entities to perform some of our functions and activities, and these arrangements require access to, or collection of personal information on behalf of KDGC, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that these entities are bound to comply with appliable Privacy Laws.

Disclosure of Personal Information to third parties
We may share your Personal Information with third party contractors (including outsourced and cloud service providers) who may be unable to avoid accessing Personal Information in the course of providing technical or other business support services to us.

Surveillance activities
We operate surveillance cameras (CCTV and body-worn cameras) in and around GCLR assets for various purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy, including monitoring people movement and general operational purposes, as well as the purposes of minimising and detecting unlawful activity, preventing crowd disturbances and assisting law enforcement and our security contractors in carrying out their responsibilities.

Consequences if Personal Information is not collected
If we are not able to collect your Personal Information, we may not be able to provide the requested services to you or may not be able to provide the requested services to the same standard or scope that we would typically be able to provide.

Direct marketing
We will not use or disclose Personal Information for the purposes of direct marketing to you unless:
(a) you have consented to receive direct marketing materials; or
(b) we are otherwise permitted to do so by law.
You can ask to be removed from our marketing list (or from specific communications) at any time by contacting us, or by following the prompts in the relevant communication, where applicable.

Storage of data and overseas disclosure
The Personal Information we hold is either stored on our servers or the servers of third-party service providers, located both in Australia and overseas. We take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information held from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

Some of our service providers and related bodies corporate with which we share Personal Information as described above may be located in overseas locations. In addition, we, or our subcontractors, may use cloud technology in connection with the storage of Personal Information, and it is possible that this may result in offshore storage. In each of these circumstances, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Information is protected in compliance with applicable privacy laws.

Data security
We take reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information which we hold from misuse or loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We will destroy or de-identify Personal Information once we no longer require it for our business purposes.

We will comply with our obligations relating to the notification of eligible data breaches. To the extent we are required to notify you of a data breach, we will take reasonable steps to make you aware of such data breach.
When using our website or app or communicating with us via social media, you should be aware that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Although we strive to protect such information, we do not warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us over the Internet and you do so at your own risk.
