However, if your personal information is disclosed to an overseas recipient and it handles your personal information in a way that breaches the Australian Privacy Principles under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), Gadens will not be responsible and you will not be able to seek redress under the Act.
Consequences of not providing your personal information
If all or some of your personal information which Gadens requires is not provided, Gadens may not be able or willing to process your employment application or offer you employment.
