We collect personal information from you when it is reasonably necessary for a business purpose.
That means we collect it to supply you with the products you have asked for and to provide you with the best possible service.
Other reasons we collect personal information are to:
Moose Mobile collects personal information like your name, address, date of birth, gender, occupation, interests, location, contact details, payment details, financial information, and information about how and where you purchase and use our products.
There are a few different ways we collect this information.
We collect most personal information directly from you. For example, you might fill out a form online or give it to one of our representatives on the phone.
Of course, you can choose not to provide your personal information or may just want to deal with us anonymously. If this happens, we may not be able to provide you with the product you've asked for or give you the level of service you expect.
We also collect personal information during our relationship with you. For example, we may collect personal information:
It's important to know you can clear cookies or digital identifiers from your device and also disable future use of them by changing the security settings on your web browser. However, doing this might mean that parts of Moose Mobile' website may not work as they should.
Other people might give us personal information about you. For example, we might be given personal information by your employer if you use our business products, or by your parent or guardian if you are under 18.
We may also collect personal information from other companies that are able to disclose it to us, if it's not practical to collect it from you. For example, we buy or obtain personal information from trusted sources to help us identify people who might be interested in hearing about our products.
We will take reasonable steps to make sure you know we have your personal information, how we got it and how we'll handle it.
We collect some types of personal information to assess your credit situation when you apply for services. For more details, see the section 6 - Credit Related Information further below.
We aggregate and process personal information to generate new insights about our network, products and customers, so we can provide you with the best possible service.
When we talk about sensitive information, we mean details about your race, ethnicity, politics, religious or philosophical beliefs, sexual preferences, health, genetics or criminal record.
Generally speaking, we don't need sensitive information about you - it's just none of our business.
There may be times when you choose to tell us about your health, and we might collect biometric information for use with new technologies like voice or fingerprint recognition. This could happen as technology changes and evolves over time.
Remember, this kind of information will only be collected with your permission, and we will only use it for the purpose for which you provided it.
We also work with a number of other companies, and in certain circumstances may share personal information with them.
We sometimes team up with other companies to offer products. If you purchase a product that is delivered by one of our partners, we'll give them the personal information they need to provide it and manage their relationship with you. In these circumstances, we have arrangements in place with our partners that limit their use or disclosure of your personal information to these purposes.
We work with third parties to provide some types of sales, business and customer support. They may have access to systems that include your personal information. These companies are subject to strict controls that protect your information from unauthorized use or disclosure, and limit their access to your personal information to the extent necessary to do their job.
Some of the parties mentioned above are located overseas, but again, we only give them secure access to the personal information they need to do their job. These overseas companies are involved in providing services like data storage and customer and technical support, and they do it from countries like Singapore, India and the Philippines.
Moose Mobile maintains effective control of your information at all times, including by ensuring that parties located overseas are subject to strict controls that limit access and subsequent handling of your information to the extent strictly necessary to perform the relevant function and protect your information from unauthorized use and disclosure.
Debt is way up there on the 'things absolutely no one likes' list.
In some circumstances, we may need to refer or sell overdue debts to debt collectors or other companies. If we do this, we'll give them secure access to the personal information they need to handle the debt.
We may also update credit reporting agencies about some types of payment defaults, although we'll always tell you before we do this.
We give access to personal information where we are permitted or obliged to do so by Australian law. For example, in some circumstances we will use or disclose personal information to react to unlawful activity, serious misconduct, or to reduce or prevent a serious threat to life, health or safety. We are obliged to cooperate with law enforcement bodies in some circumstances. We may disclose personal information, including information about phone calls and service use, when we receive an access request or warrant that is authorized under Australian law.
We give information about some of our telephone products to the Integrated Public Number Database, where it's used to do things like write phone directories and assist with the dispatch of emergency services. We may also provide your geolocation information directly to emergency services (i.e. ‘triple 0’) when you call them on your mobile.
Aside from the above, we will only disclose personal information to others if you've given us permission, or if the disclosure relates to the main reason we collected the information and you'd reasonably expect us to do so.
Everyone hates being bombarded with ads for things they don't need or have any interest in. Moose Mobile may use your personal information, or engage third parties who collect information about you from publicly available sources, to deliver advertising that is customized or more relevant to your interests, characteristics or general location. This doesn't necessarily mean you'll get more advertising. It just means that the advertising that you see will hopefully be more relevant to you.
Moose Mobile advertises by mail, phone, email, text, and online via the internet.
We may work with other companies to advertise their products online. We don't give them access to your personal information when we do this. Instead, we work with them to understand the type of audience they want to advertise to, and deliver the ad for them.
We'll make sure that any marketing emails, texts and letters we send you clearly tell you how to opt out, or you can tell our phone staff.
You can opt out of receiving online relevant advertising material at any time by emailing us on email@example.com or by calling us on (07) 31939400.
When you opt out, you can choose to opt out of particular direct marketing, or all direct marketing. Of course, there are some types of marketing we can't control on an individual basis, like general letterbox drops or online ads that are not targeted specifically to you.
Moose Mobile uses personal information to assess your credit situation when you apply for products/services. For example, we generally do a credit assessment before you take a product/product with a monthly billing account.
We might ask you for information about yourself and things like your employment details and credit history, and then seek a credit report from a credit reporting agency.
We'll always tell you before we seek a credit report, and we won't get one if you're under 18.
The credit report provided by a credit reporting agency may include information like your employment history, previous credit checks, any problems you've had paying bills and whether those issues were resolved. Moose Mobile uses this information to assess whether we're entering into an arrangement that is sensible for both you and us.
After you become a customer, we store the crucial bits of information from the credit report and our own credit assessment. We may continue to use this information to manage credit, and to make sure we're offering and providing the right services to you.
Moose Mobile doesn't use credit related information to generate marketing lists. Sometimes, we might ask a credit reporting agency to do that for us. You can ask the credit reporting agency not to use your information for these purposes by getting in touch with them directly.
Moose Mobile works with customer service partners inside and outside Australia on credit related matters. Where necessary, we give our partners access to the credit information they need to help manage credit and your services.
You can get access to credit related information we hold about you, ask us to correct it, or make a complaint, as described elsewhere in this policy. If we agree that our records need to be corrected, and we've previously disclosed that information to a credit reporting agency or other person, we'll tell them about the correction too.
You can ask the credit reporting agencies not to use or disclose the information in their files if you think you have been or are likely to become a victim of fraud.
You can find out more about the credit reporting agencies Moose Mobile works with at www.veda.com.au and www.dnb.com.au. Their websites give their contact details and their policies about the management of your personal information.
Security is serious. We're committed to protecting your personal information.
Some of the security measures we use include:
These measures are robust, but security risks do change. We will remain vigilant in our efforts to protect your personal information.
If you ask us, we will usually give you access to the personal information we hold about you. We will always confirm your identity before giving access to your personal information.
You can ask for access by calling us on (07) 31939400. It will really help if you tell us what you're looking for.
There are circumstances under Australian privacy laws where we may not give you access to the personal information we hold about you. For example, we can't give you access if it would unreasonably affect someone else's privacy or if giving you access poses a serious threat to someone's life, health or safety.
There is generally no cost for accessing the personal information we hold about you, unless the request is complex or resource intensive. If there is a charge, it will be reasonable and we will let you know what it is going to be so that you can agree to it before we go ahead.
We aim to keep the personal information we hold about you accurate, up-to-date and complete. If you think our records need to be corrected, please call us on (07) 31939400.
We encourage you to update your details with us so we can deliver better service to you, and so the others we work with (like emergency services) have access to the information they need to do their job.
We recognize that your personal information is important to you, so please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about this policy or our practices.
You can get in touch with us by:
Phone: (07) 31939400
