Pradella Property Ventures refers to the following companies, and any other company which from time to time may form part of this policy.
Collection of Personal Information
Pradella Property Ventures generally collects personal information directly from you when you deal with us, for example when you purchase an apartment, manufactured home or land from one of our companies, appoint us as a property manager, become a tenant, or stay at one of our properties. Pradella Property Ventures may collect personal information about you when you deal with us over the telephone, send us correspondence, deal with us by way of e-mail or electronically over the internet by submitting an online form, respond in any way to an advertisement we have placed, or when you have contact with us in person.
The most commonly collected personal information consists of names, mailing addresses, telephone numbers, facsimile numbers, e-mail addresses, bank account details, credit card details and other financial details. The other types of personal information that Pradella Property Ventures collects will depend on the type of dealings that you have with us.
If you are a prospective tenant, then we may collect additional personal information in order to assess your suitability for a particular property. The kinds of personal information we may collect in such circumstances include your date of birth, details of any identification document you provide to us (such as your driver’s license, passport, Medicare card etc), and your occupation or job title. We also collect financial information which may include personal information such as your bank statements, pay advices and recent ATO assessment. That financial information may be used to assess your creditworthiness, and we may make enquiries with credit reporting agencies and obtain information on you from such agencies for that purpose.
You can choose not to provide your personal information to us, but generally the information we request from you is required in order for us to provide you the services we offer.
Pradella Property Ventures also collects information when you use any of our websites including current websites:
www.pradellapropertyventures.com.au.com.au, www.canopybardon.com.au, www.rentcentralbrisbane.com.au, www.seachangegoldcoast.com.au, www.seachangedevelopments.com.au, www.seachangelifestyleresorts.com.au and any previously published websites we have owned and managed in connection with present or former businesses. However, the only personal information collected by Pradella Property Ventures is information that you provide us by filling in an on-line form, advising us verbally or sending us an e-mail. Pradella Property Ventures does have the ability to track the usage of its website on an anonymous aggregate basis. The information collected by Pradella Property Ventures in this instance is generally not personal information as it cannot be used to ascertain your identity.
There may be occasions when Pradella Property Ventures needs to collect personal information about you from a third party, for example, your employer, other organisations with whom you have dealings, a credit reporting agency, an information service provider or from a publicly maintained record. If we collect personal information in this way Pradella Property Ventures will take reasonable steps to contact you to ensure that you are aware of the circumstances of such collection.
