Use of your personal information

Other than as specifically provided for in this Privacy Policy, PPFA will not disclose or release your personal information to third parties. We use this information to identify you and provide you with newsletters and information about PPFA. We may also use it for any other purpose that you may reasonably expect, for any other purpose authorised by law, or for any other purposes disclosed to or authorised by you from time to time.

Sharing personal information with third parties

PPFA will only disclose specific information about you to third parties where it is permitted by law. This includes where you consent to the disclosure, for law enforcement or safety purposes, for the purpose for which the information was collected or for any other purpose you may reasonably expect or that we disclose or you authorise.

We may occasionally hire other companies to provide services on our behalf, including but not limited to handling enquiries.  Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service.  PPFA takes reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.

You may be required to put your request in writing and verify your identity for security reasons. There may be occasions when a request to access personal information we hold about you is denied. Such occasions would include where access to the information would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others.
