1. What is "Personal Information"

1.1 "Personal information" is any information or opinion about an identified person, or a person who is reasonably identifiable, whether true or not and whether recorded in a material form or not.

1.2 In Australia "sensitive information" is a subset of personal information that is generally afforded a higher level of protection by privacy laws. It includes your health information as well as information about your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of political, professional or trade associations or trade unions, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or practices and criminal record. There is no equivalent of this definition in New Zealand legislation, although in general Asaleo Care would expect to take a similar approach to information of this type in New Zealand as it does in Australia.

2. What personal information do we collect?
