Disclosure of your information
In order to provide our services to you, we may need to appoint other organisations to carry out some of the processing activities on our behalf. These will include, for example, delivery organisations, third party suppliers and agents. These third parties may have access to information needed to perform their function but cannot use that information for other purposes.
Use of your information outside Australia
Some of the organisations (for example, other law firms) to which we may disclose your personal information are situated outside of Australia. In order to meet your requirements , we may need to transfer your personal information to these countries some of which do not have laws that protect privacy rights as extensively as in Australia.
