Why we collect Personal Information and Types of information collected
We collect and hold personal information about you, that is, information that can identify you, and is relevant to providing you with the services you are seeking. The kinds of personal information we typically collects and include your name, address, date of birth, gender, phone number, email address, and any other information relevant to providing you with the services you are, or someone else you know is seeking.
If we did not collect and make use of your personal information, we would be unable to provide you with our services. Further, the personalized nature of our services means that, practically, we are unable to offer them to you on an anonymous or pseudonymous basis.
Purpose of collection
The personal information that we collect and hold about you, depends on your interaction with us. Generally, we collect, use, and hold your personal information to:
We may also use your information for compliance purposes and in-house research and analysis. This helps us to:

How we collect your personal information and method of collection
Personal information will generally be collected directly from you.
Personal information is generally collected during our contact with you and is largely provided by you directly. It may be collected verbally in discussions with our assessors. It may be supplied in writing by you in the form of enrolment applications and details submitted by you electronically, either directly to us.
We may monitor (record) telephone conversations with you for staff training and compliance purposes. We will inform you prior to any telephone conversation which is monitored (recorded) in this way to obtain your prior approval.
We may also collect personal information about you from third parties acting on your behalf. On occasion we may also collect personal information about you from third parties such as your employers or educational institutions. Where this occurs, we will take all reasonable steps to inform you of that.
There may, however, be some instances where personal information about you will be collected indirectly because it is unreasonable or impracticable to collect personal information directly from you. We will usually notify you about these instances in advance, or where that is not possible, as soon as reasonably practicable after the information has been collected.
How do we use and disclose your personal information?
Generally, we only use or disclose personal information about you for the purposes for which it was collected (as set out above). We may disclose personal information about you to:
We do not and never will sell or provide your details to third party advertisers or any unrelated entity unless we were to sell the business or part of it.
In some circumstances, the law may permit or require us to use or disclose personal information for other purposes (for instance where you would reasonably expect us to and the purpose is related to the purpose of collection).
In addition, some personal information may also be collected by use of “Cookies” when you contact Locate Management Institute or its associated entities on-line. A cookie is a small file which is placed on your hard drive when you visit LMI websites (directly or via our applications). We use information from cookies for purposes which may include:
You can also choose whether you wish us to collect cookie information for these purposes using the settings in your browser, as further explained at http://www.cookiecentral.com
In all cases you agree that provision by you to us of personal information, including sensitive information, constitutes consent to our collecting, storing, using and disclosing that information for the purposes outlined above and in the ways outlined in this policy.
From time to time we may use your personal information to provide you with information about our services. By accepting LMI’s terms of service and the terms of this policy and by providing LMI with information or seeking its services, you consent to direct marketing to you of relevant services or opportunities identified by LMI. If any phone number that you have provided to us is registered on the Do Not Call register you consent to LMI or its direct marketing providers calling that number or those numbers. LMI may continue to contact you for an indefinite period unless and until you advise us otherwise.
If you do not want to receive any of this information, you may opt out of receiving direct marketing at any time by contacting our privacy officer whose details are set out below. You may also opt-out and stop the delivery of future promotional material from LMI by following the special instructions in any marketing email you may receive from us. These instructions will tell you how to remove your name from our database and marketing list.
Once you have told us you no longer wish to receive information about our services, we will not send you any further material. We will keep your basic details in our ‘do not contact’ database so that we do not contact you again.
You can, however, change your mind about receiving information about our services at any time – you just need to let us know by contacting us as outlined above.
Is my personal information secure?
We store your personal information in different ways, including in paper and electronic form. LMI takes all reasonable precautions to safeguard your personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, interference, modification, or disclosure.
We employ several means to protect your personal information, including:
Please note that there are inherent features of internet communications – including e-mail – which are not secure and may involve your communications being routed through several servers and different countries. LMI cannot control this and does not guarantee the security of such transmission. Be aware that various encryption methods can be employed to secure that information if you are concerned about it but, once again, LMI does not control or particularly recommend any of these and does not warrant their effectiveness.
Ensuring your personal information is up to date
We rely on the personal information we hold about you to efficiently provide our services. Accordingly, it is important that the personal information we collect from you is accurate, complete, and up to date.
During our relationship with you we will ask you to tell us of any changes to your personal information. However, you can contact us at any time to update your personal information or to tell us the information we hold about you is inaccurate or incomplete.
Can I access or correct my personal information?
You may request access to any of the personal information we hold about you. In most cases, a summary of personal information such as your name and address details, contact telephone numbers and the matters you have engaged us on are available to you by contacting us by any of the means set out at the end of this policy. We will respond to your request within a reasonable period. We may charge you a reasonable fee for processing your request (but not for making a request for access).
We may decline a request for access to personal information in circumstances prescribed by the Privacy Act, and if we do, we will provide you with a written notice that sets out the reasons for the refusal (unless it would be unreasonable to provide those reasons).
If, upon receiving access to your personal information, or at any other time, you believe the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete, or out of date, please notify us immediately. We take reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete, and up to date.
If we refuse to correct your personal information, we will provide you with a written notice that sets out the reasons for our refusal (unless it would be unreasonable to provide those reasons) and provide you with a statement regarding the mechanisms available to you to make a complaint.
LMI may be required by law to retain your personal information for a period after you have ceased your relationship with us. After the required time has passed, we attend to the secure destruction or deletion of your personal information.
