Privacy Policy


Inghams Group Limited (we, us or our) is an organisation for the purposes of the Privacy Act 1988 (Act) and is subject to the Australian Privacy Principles contained in the Act.

This Privacy Policy is intended to provide a general overview of our policies in respect of the handling and management of your personal information. Your personal information is any information or opinion about you that is capable of identifying you.

Other policies may override or supplement this Privacy Policy in certain circumstances. For example, when we collect personal information from you, we may advise a specific purpose for collecting that personal information, in which case we will handle your personal information in accordance with that purpose.

This Privacy Policy is intended to cover most personal information handled by us, but is not exhaustive. If you have any queries about our management of your personal information, please contact us for further information.



We may collect personal information directly from you unless it is unreasonable or impracticable to do so, and will limit the personal information we collect to that which is reasonably necessary for our functions or activities.

We collect personal information in a number of ways, including:

  • through application forms;
  • by email or other written mechanism;
  • in a telephone call;
  • in person;
  • through transactions;
  • through our website;
  • through our online systems;
  • through surveillance cameras; and
  • by technology that is used to support communications between us;

At or before the time or (if it is not reasonably practicable) as soon as practicable after we collect personal information, we will take reasonable steps to make you aware of:

  • our identity and contact details;
  • if we collected the Personal Information from a third party, the fact and circumstances of the collection;
  • whether the collection is required or authorised by law;
  • the purposes for which the information is being collected;
  • the organisations to which we would usually disclose your information;
  • the main consequences (if any) for you if you fail to provide all or some of the personal information,
  • how you may access and seek correction of personal information held by the us and how you may complain about a breach of the APPs in accordance with this Policy; and
  • whether we are likely to disclose your information to any overseas recipients as well as the countries in which any such recipients are located.

This Privacy Policy provides these details as they typically apply in most cases, however different details may apply depending on our specific interaction with you. If we do not notify you of such other details, the information in this Privacy Policy applies.

If you fail to provide personal information requested by us, there may be a range of consequences, for example we may be unable to process or respond to your request.

We may, in some circumstances, collect personal information about you from third parties, in which case we will take reasonable steps to notify you of that information and the circumstances of its collection. Specific circumstances where we collect personal information from third parties may include web hosting providers, service providers and our product promotions (which are drawn by third parties).

There will not usually be Australian laws or court/tribunal orders that require or authorise us to collect your personal information. However, if such laws or orders do apply, we will take reasonable steps to notify you of them.

Unsolicited personal information is personal information that we receive which it did not solicit. Unless we determine that we could have collected the personal information in line with the APPs or the information is contained within a Commonwealth record, we must destroy the information to ensure it is de-identified.


We will generally only use or disclose your personal information for the purpose for which we collected it, and for related purposes we consider will be within your reasonable expectations. Otherwise, we will seek your consent prior to using or disclosing your personal information for another purpose (unless we are required or permitted by law to do so without seeking permission).

We generally use your personal information to:

  • provide the service requested, respond to your enquiries, send you information that you request, or otherwise achieve the purpose for which the information was submitted to us;
  • streamline and personalise your experience within our website, or tailor our information, services or products;
  • enable your involvement in promotions and other activities you participate in;
  • create aggregate data about our visitors and other statistics to allow for more efficient operation of our website;
  • seek feedback from you and perform market research;
  • contact you with marketing and promotional communications including special offers, promotions and information about the products and services offered by us;
  • perform recruitment functions; and
  • engage in other activities where required or permitted by law.

We may use personal information to contact you for marketing and promotional purposes. You may request not to receive these communications by contacting our Privacy Officer using the details set out in section 10 below, or by using the opt out function provided for in those communications. If you do not opt out in either of these ways you will be taken to have consented to receiving such communications from us.

There are no consequences of opting out of receiving our marketing and promotional communications except that you will no longer receive them, and you may elect to rejoin our marketing list at a later stage if you wish.


We will take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, interference and loss as well as unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Information may be stored on secure third party servers.

Specific security measures we employ include password protection, firewalls, encryption and implementing regular software updates and security patches. We undertake regular monitoring and improvement of our practices and systems to ensure the effectiveness our security policies.

We will endeavour to destroy or de-identify your personal information as soon as it is no longer required by us (where permitted by law).


You may contact us to request access to or correction of the personal information about you that we hold. We may refuse to allow you to access or to correct your personal information if we are legally required or entitled to do so. If we do so, we will provide you with written reasons for the refusal (unless it is unreasonable to do so) and the options available to complain about the refusal.

We may require you to pay a fee in order to access your personal information held by us. We will advise the amount of the fee payable (if any) and explain the reasons for the fee once we have assessed your application for access. We will not charge a fee for you to lodge a request for access to or correction of your personal information.

If you lodge a request for access, we may provide you with access to your personal information in any of a number of ways (including, for example, supplying you with a copy or providing you with the opportunity to inspect it).

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information that we collect, use and disclose is accurate, up-to-date and complete. If we are satisfied that any personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, we will amend our records accordingly.

Please notify us if your personal details change so that we may keep our records current.

  • Customer: if you are a customer, we may collect and hold information including your name, address, email address, contact telephone number, gender and age.
  • Supplier: if you are a supplier, we may collect and hold information including your name, address, email address, contact telephone number, business records, billing information, information about goods and services supplied by you.
