The APPs cover:

Requires APP entities to give individuals the option of not identifying themselves, or of using a pseudonym. Limited exceptions apply.

Bescon Industries will ensure that all reasonable measures are taken to make Customers aware that personal information about them is being collected, of the purposes for which that information is being collected and of the third parties (if any) to whom that information is being passed. Bescon Industries will also respect the new legislative restrictions on the use that can be made of personal information.
Customers should be aware that Bescon Industries only collects and retains personal information which is relevant to the on-going trading relationship with Bescon Industries. Such information is securely stored and maintained before being destroyed at the end of its useful life (or otherwise dealt with at the Customer’s direction).
Customers also have the right to gain access to personal information about them which is held by Bescon Industries and to have that information corrected or annotated if the information is incorrect, out-of-date or incomplete. Customers may also complain to the Federal Privacy Commissioner if they consider that information about them is not being properly handled.
