Dynamic Methods Pty Ltd (ACN 149 256 655) (Dynamic Methods) is committed to complying with its obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Act).
Dynamic Methods makes the website, Apply Now, accessible to a user sent a link by a participating real estate agent for a rental listing, to allow that user to complete REI's Residential Tenancy Application Form for the property online. Please refer to the section below titled "REI Forms Live" for further information about how the REI collects, uses and discloses personal information in relation to the Tenancy Application Form.
Dynamic Methods will use and disclose personal information only for the purposes for which it is collected and in accordance with the Act, including:
Users of this website may apply online to become a registered user of Apply Now via this website.
If the information including personal information is not provided by the user during the registration process, Dynamic Methods may not be able to provide services to the user effectively or at all.
Access to this website and therefore Apply Now is restricted to registered and authorised users of the website.
If a registered or authorised user of this website logs into the website to access Apply Now, using their login name and password, that user will not be able to maintain anonymity for the purposes of accessing and using the website.
If a registered or authorised user does not use their unique login and password they will not be able to access Apply Now.
If any individual attempts to register with Apply Now, the website will record the registration details and Dynamic Methods may use those details (which include personal information) for marketing and research purposes. If the registration attempt(s) is unsuccessful, Dynamic Methods may attempt to contact the relevant individual (from the details entered into the registration screen) in an attempt to resolve the unsuccessful registration attempt(s).
A cookie is an electronic token that is passed to the user's browser which passes it back to the server whenever a page is sent to the user or a user inputs information into a form or template from Apply Now.
Dynamic Methods servers may generate cookies which are used to keep track of the pages users have accessed while using the website as well as any information the user inputs into any form or template.
The cookie allows, inter alia, users to page backwards and forwards through the website and return to pages they have already visited. The cookie also allows data to be inputted into a form or template and temporarily stored until the user chooses to save that form or template. Cookies generally remain on the user's computer even after an internet session is ended and the computer rebooted. The cookie can be read by the server that placed it there during a subsequent visit to that same server. Their exact behavior is server specific.
When a user visits this website, Dynamic Methods's server may also log certain information including the type of browser and operating system the user is using; the top level domain name (for example .com, .net, .au, etc); the address of the referring site (for example, the previous site visited); the server's IP address; the date and time of visit, and the address of the pages accessed and the documents downloaded. This information is generally only for internal statistical analysis and system administration purposes.
When a registered user accesses this website and uses Apply Now, the user may input information including personal information into the website for the purposes of completing the Tenancy Application Form online. The personal information is collected by Dynamic Methods for the purposes of facilitating the use of the service. The service made available from Apply Now may also include an interface with third parties (such as, for example, REI Forms Live or third parties including those with whom Dynamic Methods has integration arrangements - see section titled "Information disclosed" above). Outside of these arrangements, Dynamic Methods will never use or disclose such personal information for any other purpose.
Dynamic Methods may however, use and disclose de-identified personal information from the completed forms, including for the purposes of carrying out statistical analysis and research as well as to analyse and improve products, services and benefits to its users. Dynamic Methods may in connection with these matters supply the de-identified personal information to relevant third parties.
Dynamic Methods takes reasonable steps to protect all information which it holds (including personal information) from misuse, loss, and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Where appropriate Dynamic Methods uses secure transmission facilities. However, no transmission of information over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure and we do not warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the internet.
Dynamic Methods may also use the information including personal information (but not including any sensitive information) provided by any user (whether registered, authorised or not) of this website for marketing and research purposes, to analyse and improve products, benefits and services and to inform the user of products, services and benefits provided by Dynamic Methods, its related entities or preferred suppliers which Dynamic Methods consider may be of value or interest to the user, unless the user tells Dynamic Methods or has previously told Dynamic Methods not to. If a user does not wish to receive any information about such products, services and/or benefits then, to opt-out of receiving that information, contact the team for that purpose at firstname.lastname@example.org or on (08) 7329 4000. Please allow 10 business days before any opt-out becomes effective.
Any user of the website has the right to request access to any personal information held by Dynamic Methods which relates to them. If Dynamic Methods holds personal information of any other individual, that individual has the same right to request access to personal information Dynamic Methods may hold, unless Dynamic Methods is permitted by law (including the Act) to withhold that information. Dynamic Methods may charge a reasonable fee where access to personal information is provided (no fee may be charged for making an application to access personal information). Any requests for access to a user's personal information should be made in writing to the Privacy Officer (specified below). The user also has the right to request the correction of any personal information which relates to them that is inaccurate, incomplete, irrelevant, misleading or out-of-date.
If the user requires any further information about the Dynamic Methods's management of personal information or they have any queries or complaints, they should contact:
