DISCOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You consent to QMS disclosing any personal information collected to authorised personnel of QMS, and also to Related Companies, Partner and credit reporting agencies, as further described below. Related Companies and Partners may be located in Australia and/or overseas countries. You hereby consent to the disclosure of your personal information to Related Companies and Partners overseas and you acknowledge that as a result of your consent to such disclosure, clause 8.1 of the Australian Privacy Principles does not apply.
We may share information about you with related bodies corporate, joint venture partners and affiliated companies and business (“Related Companies”) so we can provide you with the products and services you request and bring you information about products and services we offer. We will inform our Related Companies that information shared with them must be collected, used, disclosed and store in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
In some cases we or our Related Companies may contract with other companies or individuals to provide services for us (“Partners”). Examples of these may include deliveries, market research, public relations, debt collection agencies, legal advisors, auditors etc. We provide them only with such information about you as they need to perform their services and we impose strict requirements of security and confidentiality on them in how they handle your personal information.

Credit information about you may be obtained from and provided to credit reporting agencies in accordance with applicable legislation.
All personal information supplied to QMS is not shared with any other third parties unless your explicit consent is obtained or as required or authorised by any law including to law enforcement, government or other organisations or where permitted under the Privacy Act.
ACCESS AND CORRECTION
Where QMS holds personal information about you, we will provide you with access to the information on request, subject to the exceptions set out in the Privacy Act. We may charge a fee to cover the costs of meeting your request.
Where providing access would reveal evaluative information generated within QMS in connection with a commercially sensitive decision-making process, QMS may give you an explanation for the decision, rather than direct access to the information.
If QMS is satisfied that your personal information is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, we will take reasonable steps to correct your personal information. In addition, if you request us to correct your personal information, we will take reasonable steps to do so within a reasonable time. If you request it, we will also take reasonable steps to notify any other Related Companies or Partners of the changes if we have previously provided your personal information to that entity. There is no fee for correcting your personal information. We may require you to provide particulars of your identity before providing you with access to, or making changes to, your personal information.
