CBO recognises the importance of compliance with Australian Privacy Laws particularly with respect to personal information. For this reason CBO has adopted a privacy of information policy consistent with Australian Privacy Legislation. CBO endeavours to collect any personal information directly from the individual with that individual’s consent. Where personal information is provided to CBO by third parties, staff will always take reasonable steps to obtain consent from the individual to whom the information pertains where required by the legislation.

CBO only collects personal information that is necessary for the conduct of its business. Apart from the completion of the original business dealing this may involve the provision of relevant product and industry updates and other market related information and opportunities to CBO’s business associates. Should you prefer not to receive any such information please advise CBO by contacting the our Privacy Officer.

As an information technology company, CBO employs security systems and procedures to ensure the integrity and security of personal information held by the company. Personal information does not leave CBO’s internal systems unless required to effect the primary purpose of your business with CBO, or unless consented to. Despite the high level of information security employed within CBO and its commitment to your privacy, the company is unable to provide an absolute assurance that personal information will remain secure at all times. CBO therefore does not accept any responsibility for incidences of unauthorised access to personal information, which is provided at your own risk. Likewise CBO does not guarantee the security or privacy compliance of any websites that are accessible through links provided on any of its websites.

CBO will delete from its systems any of your personal information held by the company on your request provided that sufficient proof of identity is established. CBO undertakes to provide access to individuals to any of their personal information held by the company for the purpose of review and correction with exception to the limitations imposed by the privacy legislation. CBO does not require that you supply any sensitive information to the company unless it is essential for the purpose of the conduct of business. This type of information will not be collected without your consent.
