Collection of your personal information
We will only collect personal information if it is necessary for us to meet our obligations to you, or where it is otherwise reasonably necessary for our functions and activities. Your personal information is that information which identifies you, or information from which your identity can be reasonably ascertained.
You are able to make phone enquiries with us or view our website without disclosing your personal information. Whilst you are able to request to deal with us anonymously, or using a pseudonym, it may be impracticable for us to provide any of our services to you if you are not identified.

By engaging us to assist with these core services, you specifically consent to us collecting your information for the purposes of direct marketing to you about our services.
Disclosure of your personal information
We will disclose your personal information for the purpose for which it was collected, or, in the case of sensitive informat ion, we will disclose this only with your consent or as otherwise permitted by law.

You can opt out of these direct marketing initiatives at the time of collection or at any later time by either clicking the unsubscribe button on any direct marketing email or by contacting the Privacy Officer using the contact details below.

IG Design Group Australia Pty. Ltd will take all reasonable steps to protect your information and will only allow its employees to access it where necessary for our functions and activities. Data is destroyed or de-identified after it is no longer required, including where the information has been unsolicited, in which case it is dealt with as required by the Privacy Act.
