Privacy Policy.

Canberra Data Centres (CDC) and the Australian Privacy Act.

The Commonwealth Government has passed the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 (Cth) which amends the Privacy Act 1988(Cth). As an Australian owned company, our policy for your privacy is based upon the Australian - 10 National Privacy Principles. When you purchase from CDC , contact CDC , provide information to CDC or view the CDC website, we will protect your privacy and help you maintain control over your company and any personal data that you have provided to CDC .


Information collected will only be used for the conduct of business with CDC and you, the client. It will be fair, lawful and non - obtrusive. CDC will use the Collection Statement. Where reasonable and practical, CDC will endeavour to collect information directly from the individual within the company.

Use and disclosure:

CDC will endeavour to collect information for primary purposes only - i.e. A CDC marketing campaign for a specific purpose.

Data Quality:

CDC will endeavour to collect and use information that is accurate, complete and up to date. The Quality of data will be continually confirmed.

Government Identifiers:

CDC will not use any government identifier such as Tax file number, Medicare etc to identify a client. ABN and ACNs may be used.


Where it is lawful and practical CDC will allow customers to interact anonymously.

Transborder Dataflows:

As a totally Australian owned company, there are no other CDC entities that have access to the database that CDC operates upon. Thus the information will not be shared beyond the parent entity.

Sensitive Information:

CDC will not collect sensitive information unless the individual consents.
If CDC uses any service provider as a third party i.e. mail house, PR firm or recruitment company etc we insist that they abide by these privacy laws.
