Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains how Kyco (Aust) Pty Ltd (ACN 626 905 413) (“Kyco”, “we” or “us”) collects, uses, discloses and handles personal information, including all personal information collected via our website at www.kyco.com.au (“Website”).

Personal information

Personal information is any information about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable, whether the information is true or not and whether the information is recorded in a material form or not.

Sensitive information is any personal information about your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious beliefs or affiliations, philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional or trade association, membership of a trade union, sexual orientation or practices, criminal record, health, genetics, biometrics or biometric templates.

We don’t generally require your sensitive information, and generally ask that you do not provide it to us. However, if you do provide it voluntarily and despite our request (such as in a resume), we will collect, use or disclose your sensitive information as permitted by law.

What personal information do we collect and why?

The types of personal information we collect may include:

  • your name;
  • your contact details, such as your telephone number, address and email address; and
  • (where you are a job applicant or a prospective employee) qualifications, work history information, work eligibility information, information about your attributes, skills and work ethic.

You are not required to provide us with your personal information. You may choose to remain anonymous or use a pseudonym when dealing with us. However, if you choose not to identify yourself, we may not be able to provide you with access to aspects of our services. We will only ask you to provide us with the information that we need to provide our services to you. Any other personal information you provide to us is done so on a voluntary basis. We collect and use your personal information for a number of purposes connected with our business operations, which include:

  • facilitating the provision of the products and services of Kyco and our business partners to you, including the businesses we partner with to provide you with the benefit of our services (such as energy and insurance providers);
  • addressing or responding to any requests from you;
  • informing you of the existing and proposed products and services of Kyco and our partners you may be interested in;
  • developing and improving the quality and scope of the products and services we provide, and seeking your feedback; and
  • where you are a job applicant or prospective employee, considering your job application, and giving you an offer of employment.

We may also use your personal information for purposes related to those we’ve described above which would reasonably be expected by you, where we have your consent, in order to prevent injury or death, or as permitted by law (including for law enforcement or public health and safety reasons).

How we collect your personal information

We collect personal information that is necessary for our business activities and in order to provide and develop our products and services. We may do this in a number of ways, including:

  • directly from you, when you provide it to us, whether via our Website, or in communications or conversations with us;
  • from your friends or relatives, when they provide it to us for the purpose of referring you to our service;
  • from our service providers or business partners;
  • by analysing our own records of your use of our products and services; or,
  • where you are a job applicant or prospective employee, from our recruiters or your referees.

While we may use ‘cookies’ and other web technologies to collect information about how website visitors use the Website and to support certain features of the Website, the information collected via these technologies does not identify you personally.
