DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
Your privacy is important to us. We do not disclose personal information to third parties for the purposes of allowing them to send marketing material to you. However, we may share non-personal, de-identified or aggregated information to them for research or promotional purposes.
From time to time, VI is approached by third parties who seek to interact with our audiences for recruitment and procurement purposes. Depending on the circumstances of collection, we may disclose your personal information (i.e. name and email) to third parties to fulfil the purpose for which the personal information was collected, or a related or ancillary purpose or otherwise in accordance with the Privacy Act 1998 (Cth). The countries to which such disclosures are made, and types of personal information disclosed, depend on the specific circumstances of the engagement.
We may also use personal information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will use them for these new purposes only, and data collected from the time of the policy change forward will adhere to our updated practices
