Collection of Information
ADT Security collects the personal information it needs to provide the products and services it offers.
ADT Security also collects personal information about its customers and suppliers, or employees or officers of its customers and suppliers, so that it can complete business transactions, purchase or deliver products and services, administer accounts, provide customer support and meet regulatory requirements.

(b) Through the web site users are offered the opportunity to receive sales or promotional information. Users must fill in an appropriate lead form and confirm they wish to receive this information. Contact information (e.g., name, mail/email address, telephone and fax number) will be collected.
Use and Disclosure
ADT Security will generally use and disclose information it holds about an individual for the purpose for which it was collected and for other related purposes for which the individual would reasonably expect it to use the information or to which the individual has agreed. That agreement might be written, verbal or implied from the conduct of the individual.
If ADT Security engages anyone to do something on its behalf (for example, mailing houses, suppliers of internet support services, auditors, debt collection agencies, process servers or lawyers]) then ADT Security and the service provider may exchange information for the purposes for which the service provider has been engaged.
We also use personal information for planning, product development and research purposes.
ADT Security shares personal information with its related companies both in and outside Australia.
ADT Security may also use or disclose information where it is required or permitted by law to do so or where the use or disclosure is in the public interest.
Where relevant ADT Security will handle personal information relying on the employee exemption in the Privacy Act.

Security of Your Personal Information
The security of your information is important to ADT Security and we take reasonable precautions to protect your information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Some of the ways we protect your information include:
- External and internal premises security.
- Restricting access to personal information to staff who need it to perform their day-to-day functions.
- Maintaining technology products to prevent unauthorised computer access including identifiers and passwords.
- Maintaining physical security over paper records.
Access and Correction
Generally ADT Security allows individuals access to the information it holds about them within a reasonable time after they have made a request for access. In some instances ADT Security will refuse to give an individual access to information. If it does so it will provide that individual with the reason it has refused them access.
ADT Security will correct information it has about an individual if it discovers, or the individual is able to show, the information is incorrect. If an individual seeks a correction and ADT Security disagrees that the information is incorrect ADT Security will provide the individual with its reasons for taking that view.
ADT Security may charge a fee for informing an individual what information it has about them. This fee will be charged to cover ADT Security’s reasonable costs in locating and supplying the information.
Updates to ADT Security’s Data Protection Practices for the Internet
ADT Security will from time to time review and revise its Internet practices and communicate any updates on its website. Minor changes may be made at anytime without notice. If we make a major change in the way that we use, disclose or protect internet registration information, we will highlight the change.
