Privacy Policy

WAFI is committed to managing any personal information provided to us in a responsible and secure manner.

When we collect personal information from an individual, we ensure that we do so in a fair manner and that we let the individual know where and how to contact us regarding their information. We only collect information that is necessary for one or more of our functions or activities.

This privacy policy covers all personal information we hold, that is, information about an individual, whose identity is apparent, or can be reasonably ascertained, from that information. This includes information we have collected from people through our customer service personnel, over the phone or over the Internet.

The policy also covers personal information that we have sourced from third parties.

This privacy policy is current and effective from 30 September 2007.
