  • Use staff to collect your information who abide by HR+ privacy policy and have a specific role in the purpose for which your personal information is being collected;
  • Only use your personal information for the purpose for which it is collected or for a directly related secondary purpose that you would expect your personal information to be used for (unless legally required or authorised to do otherwise);
