Advisian will not collect, use or disclose personal information except in limited circumstances where necessary for the purposes of its business. Situations in which Advisian may collect personal information include:
- recruitment and engagement of staff and contractors
- personnel administration
- when required by law
- when dealing with certain government agencies
- when visitors to our website interact with the website
We collect personal information orally, in writing, by telephone, by e-mail and through other methods of communication.
Advisian collects personal information directly from the individual to whom it relates, except where that individual has consented to Advisian collecting the personal information from a third party or the law otherwise permits Advisian to do so.
Personal information may be collected from, and disclosed to, third parties as necessary in the course of recruitment and engagement, to ensure that the information Advisian has is correct and to determine whether the applicant is suited to the available position. Advisian may take steps to verify that academic, training and professional qualifications are accurate and complete and, in appropriate circumstances due to the nature of the available position, we may carry out credit checks and criminal records checks. We will only collect information from third parties if your application progresses with us.
Third parties may include:
- recruitment or human resource service providers
- health professionals
- insurers and insurance brokers
- nominated referees
- credit reporting agencies and
- police and other law enforcement agencies
In each case, Advisian treats personal information in accordance with the relevant privacy and data protection laws in the country in which we are operating.
Accuracy of Personal Information
We will take reasonable steps to ensure the personal information that we store is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
At any time you may request that your personal information be corrected or supplemented if you believe it to be inaccurate or misleading. If we agree, the change will be made. If we disagree, we will advise you and include a notation on the record that you dispute the information’s accuracy.

We do not sell your personal information to others.
If we wish to use your personal information for a purpose beyond that for which it was originally provided, we will ask for your consent.
Personal information that we disclose
Advisian will only disclose personal information in accordance with this policy.
Where this involves the transfer of information overseas, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure (but we do not guarantee) that the recipient will handle the information in a manner consistent with data protection laws which apply in the jurisdiction in which that information was initially collected.
It is possible that your personal information will be transferred between entities within the Advisian Group and the WorleyParsons Group of Companies, transferred to and processed on third party servers and accessed by third party maintenance personnel. Advisian entities, third party servers and maintenance personnel may be located in jurisdictions other than the jurisdiction in which you were located when you provided the information to us. In some instances, the jurisdiction to which your information is transferred may lack privacy laws which are as extensive as the privacy laws applying in the jurisdiction in which you were located when you provided the information to us. Further, your information may be accessible to law enforcement and national security agencies both in jurisdictions to which we transfer your information and in the jurisdiction in which you were located when you provided the information to us. By providing us with your personal information, you expressly acknowledge the possibility of, and consent to, such international transfers.
It is our policy not to disclose your personal information to any unaffiliated third party without your prior permission, except where to do so is in accordance with the original purpose of collection.
We may disclose your information to any person as required by law and specifically to any government agency if we believe in good faith that we must do so to comply with the law or that doing so is required to prevent, detect, investigate or remedy improper conduct potentially affecting Advisian.
Access to your Personal Information
Advisian will, in most circumstances, make available to you upon request any personal information about you that Advisian has collected.
Advisian' staff may request access to their personal information by writing to their People Manager.
Requests for access to all other personal information should be made to our People Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advisian will respond to a request for access to your personal information and will seek to do so within a reasonable time period and, in any event, in accordance with any time period specified in relevant laws.
Refusal to Access your Personal Information
In certain circumstances Advisian may refuse you access to your personal information in whole or in part. The circumstances in which we may do so include where:
- providing access to information would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others
- the information relates to legal proceedings
- providing access to information would prejudice certain investigations
- we are required by law not to disclose the information
- we have an option under law not to disclose the information and have formed the view in good faith that it would be inappropriate to provide access or
- it is otherwise lawful to refuse access
Confidentiality and Security
Advisian is committed to:
- seeking to safeguard all personal information that you provide to us
- seeking to ensure that it remains confidential and secure and
- taking all reasonable steps to ensure that personal privacy is respected
All our data is stored in written or electronic form on our servers and computers and in various physical locations. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information from misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure and loss or corruption by computer viruses and other sources of harm. We restrict access to personal information to those staff members, joint venture partners, subsidiary companies and third parties who need to know that information for the purposes set out in this policy.
By giving us information or allowing it to be collected, to the fullest extent permitted by law, you agree that you will not make any claims against, and that Advisian will not be held liable for, any claims, losses or damages which may result, directly or indirectly, from collection of that information, including from misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure and loss or corruption by computer viruses and other sources of harm to the information we collect.
To further enhance confidentiality and security, you have the option, where lawful and practicable, not to identify yourself when entering into transactions with Advisian.
Management of Personal Information
Advisian trains its staff who handle personal information to respect the confidentiality of personal information and the privacy of individuals. Advisian regards breaches of your privacy seriously and will impose appropriate penalties, including dismissing staff who inappropriately access or misuse personal information.
Advisian has appointed a People Manager to seek to ensure Advisian collects, uses and discloses personal information in accordance with this policy.

Compliance with Privacy Laws
