Privacy policy

This website is owned and operated by Q Labour hire Pty ltd.

Q Labour Hire is bound by the National Privacy Principles (NPPs) in the Privacy Act 1988 and this Privacy Policy applies to Q labour Hire and the websites it operates.

This Privacy Policy applies to all Q labour Hire’s business activities. Also, to the extent that it relates to personal information supplied by users of our websites, it forms part of the terms and conditions of those websites. This is explained in more detail in the terms and conditions of each of the websites we operate.

This Privacy Policy outlines how Q labour Hire handles personal information. “Personal information” is information or an opinion that identifies an individual, or from which an individual’s identity reasonably can be ascertained.

1. What personal information do we collect and why?

(a) Job Applicants

Much of the personal information that Q labour Hire collects is information that website users volunteer to us (through our websites).

For instance, personal information is provided by users who register for our website services (Registration Information), including:

§  Job Enquiry; Q labour Hire receives voluntary personal information from Website users enquiring or registering for job opportunites.


Also, Q Labour Hire may aggregate personal information that is Registration Information. This is for research purposes only (and the aggregated data will not identify any individual users).

(b) Business Contacts

We also collect personal information from people we do business with, such as contact people in our external service providers and related bodies corporate. This information is needed so that we can manage our business, and is collected in the ordinary course of business.

2. Will personal information be given to anyone else?

Subject to the exceptions outlined below, Q Labour Hire’s policy is not to disclose personal information that is Registration Information to third parties.

Like most businesses, Q Labour Hire uses a number of external service providers to help us perform functions such as delivery, mailing, IT and website support. For our service providers to perform those functions effectively and efficiently it is sometimes necessary for them to handle personal information on our behalf. This may include Registration Information and other personal information held by us. Under the terms of our service agreements with our service providers, we require those external service providers to respect your privacy, and authorise them only to use personal information that we disclose to them in order to provide the services we require.

We may also disclose personal information we are under a legal requirement to do so (eg under a court order, or if required under legislation), or if an authorised request is made (eg from a law enforcement agency).

3. Access and Correction

Under the Privacy Act, you have a right to seek access to information which we hold about you (although there are some exceptions to this). You also have the right to ask us to correct information about you which is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.

As noted, the personal information that we hold about you will generally be information that you have provided to us. However, if you wish to exercise your right under the Privacy Act to seek access to personal information that we hold about you, we ask that you contact our Privacy Officer (details at point 7 below), who will explain how we will handle your access request. Our policy is to consider any requests for correction in a timely way.

4. Is personal information stored safely?

Q Labour Hire takes reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we hold is stored in a secure environment protected from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We remind our staff and contractors of the importance of storing personal information in a secure way, and to treat it like confidential information.

5. Contact Us

If you have any questions or comments about this privacy policy, or if you wish to complain about how we have handled personal information about you, please contact our Privacy Officer via post: The privacy officer, Q Labour Hire, PO Box 211, Noosa Heads, QLD 4567.

8. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We review our privacy policy from time to time to make sure it is complying with legislative requirements and is in line with our users’ expectations. We reserve the right to change the policy accordingly.
