Ko Homes Pty Ltd understands the importance of protecting individuals’ rights, to privacy. In handling personal information, Kō is subject to the Privacy Act 1988 as amended and complies with the thirteen Australian Privacy Principles set out in the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012. We have prepared this policy to help you understand in an open and transparent way how Kō will manage your personal information and how we aim to protect the integrity and security of personal information. The policy describes the way Kō collects, uses and discloses personal information and it provides information on your rights in relation to our management of that information. This policy is available on our website at Ko.homes and may be updated from time to time. We will provide you with a copy of the policy on request free of charge.
Personal information means any information that can identify you. Unless required or authorised by law, Kō will not adopt, use or disclose government related identifiers. Generally, we or our agent will collect personal information, such as your name and contact details including home address and e-mail address; mandatory tax file number, ABN or exemption category; name of financial institution, BSB number, account number and account name. This information is necessary for us to provide our services to you and comply with statutory requirements. If you choose not to identify yourself or to use a pseudonym when dealing with Ko, then it may not be legal or practicable for us to provide our products or services in relation to a particular matter.
This will depend on how you interact with Kō or the products and services you request from us.

Personal information may also be taken if you speak with our staff in relation to a particular matter such as in making a complaint. Mostly it will be unnecessary to collect personal information from other sources, such as from a publicly maintained record. In the event that your personal information is collected from a third party, we will take reasonable steps to inform you from whom, how and why the information was collected. Kō will, in relation to the receipt of unsolicited personal information, determine within a reasonable time whether it could have collected the information through established processes. If it could not have been so collected, we will, if it is lawful and reasonable to do so, securely destroy or de-identify the information. Where it is determined that the unsolicited information could have been collected in the normal way, it will be held and used by us in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 as amended. We will not collect sensitive information about you such as your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, health and genetic information.
Personal information is used for the main business or primary purpose for which it was collected:
In some circumstances this information may be used by other Kō related entities. Other types of organisations to which Kō may disclose personal information include:
Kō may, in circumstances that align with its main business purpose, use or disclose your personal information outside of your State or Territory and/or outside of Australia.

Kō will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we collect, use or disclose is accurate, up-to-date, complete and relevant for the purpose of its use or disclosure. You have the right to examine the personal information we collect and hold about you. If at any time you would like to access or correct your details, please contact us at:
