Senior Management is committed to ensuring all privacy and security requirements of our interested parties are met and that we continually improve the systems and processes surrounding the gathering and ongoing security of personal and corporate information.
This policy takes into account requirements dictated by Mammoth’s strategy, Regulations, Legislations, Australian Standards, Contracts and the current/projected security threats.
Subject to legislative requirements, we will only collect personal information relevant to our business relationship with you. The type of information collected from you may include your name, email address, employment history, education qualifications, ABN, tax file number or other information the organisation considers necessary. We may collect your personal information in a variety of different ways including in person or by telephone, letter, fax or email.
The collection of sensitive personal information is restricted by the provisions of the Act. This means we will not collect any information such as personal information relating to your religious views, ethnicity, political opinion, criminal record, health, sexual preference, unless it is required for a purpose specifically disclosed to you at the time of collection.
Mammoth has the capability to collect information about the use of our website. This information could include the number of users, when they visit, how they navigate through the pages, which pages are visited and the amount of time spent on looking through the website. Similar statistical information is also collected when we distribute other electronic material such as marketing information on our products and services. By using this website, you agree to our collection and use of this information.
You are not required to give us the information that we request. However, if you do not give us the information that we ask for or the information you give us is incomplete or inaccurate, this may prevent or delay us from contacting you or assisting with your application.
We will, if it is reasonable or practicable to do so, collect your personal information from you. This may happen when you fill out an administrative form (eg. change of address) or when you give us personal information over the telephone or the internet.
Use & Disclosure
Unless you agree otherwise, any personal details that you provide to us as a result of accessing the Website and sending us e-mails will only be used for the purpose of dealing with your request or enquiry or otherwise in accordance with this policy, with your permission or in accordance with the Act. We do not use or disclose personal details that you provide to us for the purposes of direct marketing or any similar purposes.
We may share personal information with related companies and with contractors performing services for Mammoth Projects and as permitted by the Act. Such contractors may include, for example, information technology and telecommunications providers or professional advisers (including accountants, auditors and lawyers), credit reporting and fraud checking agencies, insurers, human resources consultants and credit providers. Mammoth Projects will only make such disclosures to achieve the purpose for which the information was provided. Otherwise, Mammoth Projects’ policy is not to disclose any personal information to any third party except with consent or where permitted by the Act or by law to do so.

In line with our policy and email security, any e-mails that you send will be automatically scanned, which could result in certain attachments and styles of message being automatically blocked. Our IT administrators may have access to your e-mails in order to authorise the content. This is done purely for IT security purposes and our IT administrators will not access the content of your e-mails once this process is complete.
Protecting Your Personal Information & Website Security.
We take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, interference or loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

Electronic information is stored in electronic databases requiring logins and passwords for access and at secure storage facilities. Access to information stored electronically is restricted to staff whose job requires access.
Our staff are trained in how to keep your information safe and secure, we have firewalls and virus scanning tools to help prevent viruses, malware and unauthorised people accessing our systems.
We take care to ensure that the personal information you give us on our website is protected. Our websites have electronic security systems in place, including the use of firewalls and data encryption.
You should note that there are inherent security risks in transmitting information through the internet. You should assess these potential risks when deciding whether to submit information to us online.

User Access Management
