Aston Homes collects your personal information for the following purposes:
Aston Homes may use your personal information for the above purposes or any other purpose listed on a collection statement at the point of collection or in any other way made clear at the time of collecting the personal information.

Aston Homes collects your information through any of the following ways:
Aston Homes may also collect information from you if you provide products and/or services to Aston Homes and this personal information is generally collected to assist in obtaining the products and/or services from you.
In some cases, we may collect personal information from publicly available sources and third parties, such as suppliers, recruitment agencies, contractors, our clients and business partners. Where appropriate, we will request that the third party inform you that we are holding such information, how we will use and disclose it, and that you may contact us to gain access to and correct and update the information.
The type of personal information we may collect can include your name, date of birth, phone number, billing information, credit card details, email, home and postal addresses.
In certain contracting scenarios, Aston Homes may collect financial/banking information, and details about your nominated guarantor and/or next of kin.
If you are a product or service supplier, Aston Homes may collect information about your employment or trading history and any business, company or related entity you are involved with.
Where you do not wish to provide us with your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with the requested goods or services.
Aston Homes may use your personal information for the primary purpose for which it was collected for example, the purpose specified in a privacy collection statement or the purpose that could be reasonably expected at the time the information was collected. Aston Homes may also use your personal information for a secondary related purpose.
By submitting your personal information, you consent to Aston Homes using it:
Aston Homes may disclose personal information between our related bodies corporate, our suppliers, organisations that provide us with technical and support services or our professional advisers. We generally require such third parties to protect your information to the same extent that we do.
In the unlikely event that we or our assets may be acquired or considered for acquisition by a third party, we may disclose personal information that we hold to the third party and its advisors.
We may also disclose your personal information in accordance with any consent you give or where disclosure is authorised, compelled or permitted by law.
Aston Homes may hold personal information as either secure physical records, electronically on our intranet system, in cloud storage, and in some cases, records on third party servers which may be located overseas.
We maintain appropriate physical, procedural and technical security for our offices and information storage facilities to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, or modification of personal information.
Please notify us immediately if you become aware of any breach of security.
We will destroy or de-identify personal information once it is no longer needed for a valid purpose or required to be kept by law.
Marketing is important to our continued success. We believe our product and service offering is unique and we like to stay in touch with our clients to inform them of new opportunities.
From time to time, we may provide you with communication about new products, services and promotions, either from us or third parties.
We will not disclose your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes without your consent.
You may opt out at any time if you no longer wish to receive direct marketing messages from us. You can make this request by contacting our Privacy Officer.
You may contact our Privacy Officer to request access to the personal information that we hold about you and/or to make corrections to that information, at any time. We will respond to all requests for access to or correction of personal information within a reasonable time. You generally have the right to access your personal information, subject to some limitations contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
The Australian Privacy Principles set out some circumstances in which Aston Homes is not required to provide you with such access. On the rare occasions when we refuse access, we will provide you with a written notice stating our reasons for refusing access.
We may seek to recover from you reasonable costs incurred for providing you with access to any of the personal information we hold about you.
We are not obliged to correct any of your personal information if we do not agree that it requires correction and may refuse to do so. If we refuse a correction request, we will provide you with a written notice stating our reasons for refusing.
