What is Personal Information?

'Personal Information' is defined in the Privacy Act 1993 as information about an identifiable individual, i.e. information:

- about a natural person as opposed to information about a company or other legal entity; and - which is in a form which enables that person to be identified.

- it is required by law.

Where reasonable and practicable, we will collect your personal information directly from you and inform you that this is being done. Where your personal information is collected from a third party, we will take reasonable steps to ensure you are aware that this has been done.

Use of 'Cookies'

We may disclose your personal information to our parent company Z Energy Ltd. or our service providers, but will only do so where equivalent commitments of confidentiality are provided.

Otherwise, we will only disclose your personal information without your consent if this is:

Necessary to protect or enforce our legal rights or interests or to defend any claims made against us by any person (including you); necessary to lessen a serious threat to a person's health or safety; or required by law.

Under no circumstances will we sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.

Storage and Protection of your Personal Information

We may record and store personal information which we collect from you and where we do so we will take all reasonable steps to keep your personal information secure and prevent unauthorised disclosure

- to keep your personal information accurate and up-to-date.

However, we do not promise that your personal information cannot be accessed by an unauthorised person (e.g. a hacker) or that unauthorised disclosures will not occur. If we provide you with any passwords or other security devices it is important that you keep these secret and confidential and do not allow them to be used by any other person. You should notify us immediately if the security of these devices is breached to prevent the unauthorised disclosure of your personal information.

Accessing your Personal Information

At any time you may request us to provide you with a transcript of any of your personal information we have stored and recorded by contacting us at Tell Mini-Tankers. We will provide you with the transcript as soon as possible but in any event within 14 days unless:

- your request is frivolous or vexatious
- release of the personal information would prejudice our legal rights
- we have legal grounds to deny your request.

If you are able to establish that any of your personal information, which has been stored and recorded by us, is not accurate, complete or up-to-date, then you should notify us and we will take all reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
