Data and Suspected Breach Response Plan
We have adapted a Data Breach disaster recover plan to which we will follow in the event of a data breach or suspected data breach. The entire procedure is outlined under Schedule One.

Our Response Plan is very similar to the recovery plan that the Office of Australian Information Commissioner (“OAIC”) has adopted. Our Response Plan also contains all the recommendations that the OAIC suggests for entities that follow the Australian Privacy Principles.

  • you have consented to the retention of the record.

During the period of retention, we will continue to abide by our non-disclosure obligations and will not share or sell your personal information.

We may retain your personal information in physical or electronic records at our discretion.

13. Transfer to Another Country
Whilst we never transmit or transfer personal information outside of Australia, there may be a very occasional situation that may arise where your Personal information may be stored on servers or sent to an individual to a third party that located outside of Australia in which it was collected in a foreign country whose laws protecting personal information may not be as stringent as the laws in Australia or where it was collected.

You consent to us processing your personal information in a foreign country whose laws regarding processing of personal information may be less stringent. In any event, The Parkmore Hotel will use its best efforts to ensure that measures are taken to ensure the security of any personal information.

You may withdraw your consent where we are relying on consent as a lawful justification to process. You may also object to our processing where we are relying on another lawful justification for processing. Please note that if you do so, we might not be able to provide services to you.

We may need to request additional information from you to verify your identity for you to access these rights. This is to ensure that your personal information is not disclosed to an unauthorised person.
