7. Do we disclose your personal information overseas?

When you provide us with your personal information we may also provide your personal information to our parent company which is located in Sweden.
Before disclosing your personal information to an overseas third party, we will first take reasonable steps to ensure that the overseas recipient:

  • does not breach the APPs in relation to your personal information; or
  • the recipient of the information is subject to a law, or binding scheme, that has the effect of protecting your personal information in a way that is substantially similar to the way in which the APPs protect the information.

If we collect your personal information, you are taken to consent to the disclosure, transfer, storing or processing of your personal information outside of Australia.

You acknowledge and agree that by providing your consent:

  • we will not be required to take steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that such third parties comply with the APPs;
  • if the overseas recipient handles your personal information in breach of the APPs:
    o we will not be liable under the Act; and
    o you will not be able to seek redress under the Act.
  • the overseas recipient may not be subject to any privacy law or principles similar to the APPs;
  • you may be unable to seek redress overseas;
  • the overseas recipient is subject to a foreign law that could compel the disclosure of personal information to a third party, such as an overseas authority.

If you withdraw consent, we will not rely on this consent when dealing with your personal information going forward.
