Forico is committed to providing you with the best possible customer service experience. Forico is bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act), which sets out a number of principles concerning the privacy of individuals.

In this statement:

  • Personal Information has the meaning given under the Privacy Act but, in short, means information or an opinion relating to an individual that can be used to identify that individual.
  • Privacy Act means the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) including the Australian Privacy Principles (as amended from time to time).
  • Sensitive Information has the same meaning as under the Privacy Act.
  • Services means the services of a commercial nature that we provide.
  • Website means and other websites and forms of social media where you post comments or we interact with you.

The meaning of any general language is not restricted by any accompanying example and the words ‘includes’, ‘including’, ‘such as’, ‘for example’ or similar words are not words of limitation.

  • from publicly available sources of information; and
  • when we are permitted or required to do so by law (including the Privacy Act).
