Metamako recognises the importance of your privacy, and that you have a right to control how your personal information is collected and used.
1. Collecting information about you
Metamako collects personal information from you as you use the Website. We collect this information when it is necessary for our business purposes.
The main types of personal information Metamako collects are names, gender, date of birth and contact details, such as addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses.
We collect most of this information directly from you where possible. This information may be provided by you in forms you fill out, in face-to-face meetings, in e-mail messages you send us, via our Website, or during telephone conversations. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that contact.
When you use the Website, we may collect other information about you, such as your IP address and information stored in cookies.
If you do not provide us with personal information we request from you, we may be unable to provide you with our full range of products and services.
2. Using and disclosing your personal information
Metamako's purpose in collecting, holding, using and disclosing information about you is to provide you with products, information or services that you request, and to operate our business.
We also use service providers to help us maximise the quality and efficiency of our services and our business operations. This means individuals and organisations outside of Metamako, such as mail houses, IT service providers, website hosts and back-up service providers, will sometimes have access to personal information held by Metamako and may use it on behalf of Metamako. We require our service providers to adhere to strict privacy guidelines and only use this information for authorised purposes.
Metamako may also disclose personal information outside Australia to group companies and/or one or more third parties with whom it has a business relationship. As at the date of this Policy, the countries to which we may transfer information include the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
Metamako will otherwise only use or disclose personal information about you:
- for any other purpose communicated to you at or near the time your personal information is collected;
- as permitted or required by law;
- if we believe it necessary to provide you with a service you have requested;
- to implement our terms of service;
- to protect the rights, property or personal safety of another Metamako client, any member of the public or Metamako;
- if some or all of the assets and operations of the business are or may be transferred to another party by way of sale of some or all of the business; or
- if you have provided your consent.
3. Job applicants
If you apply for a job at Metamako, we may collect personal information from you or from recruitment agencies for the purpose of assessing and processing your application.

In some circumstances, Metamako may collect sensitive information about you, such as information about your membership of a professional or trade association, or criminal record, where appropriate.
When you provide your personal information to us, we may use this information, such as your email address or telephone number, to contact you in order to:
- Provide you with updated information about our products and services
