PML Privacy Policy

Perth Markets Limited and its Related Bodies Corporate


In this privacy policy, the expressions "PML", "we", "us" and "our" are a reference to Perth Markets Limited ACN 608 334 989, and its Related Bodies Corporate (as defined by s9 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth)).

Perth Markets Limited (PML) is the owner and manager of the Perth Markets, a site comprised of industrial, commercial, retail and retail market precincts. Approximately 150 businesses are based at this site occupying tenancies on long-term leases (Tenants). Approximately 2,000 people and more access the Perth Markets on Business Days (Monday to Friday) and more than 4,000 people access the Retail Markets on each weekend.

PML regulates site operations so as to promote the safe, effective and efficient operation of the Perth Markets. In our dealings with Tenants and other Market users, PML collects information for a range of purposes including without limitation applications for tenancies, Access Cards and Licence Plate Recognition Technology for access to secured areas of this site and registration forms for forklift operation.

This Privacy Policy applies to Personal Information collected by us. We are bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), which governs the way private sector organisations collect, use, keep secure and disclose Personal Information.

Words defined in the Perth Markets Regulations (which are referred to in this Privacy Policy but are not defined) are given the same meaning in this Privacy Policy. If there is any conflict or inconsistency between any definition and other provision in this Policy and in any other document, the definitions contained in this Policy prevails for the purposes of interpreting this Policy only.

This Privacy Policy informs people of:

•   how and when PML collects Personal Information;

•   how PML uses and discloses Personal Information;

•   how PML keeps Personal Information secure, accurate and up-to-date;

•   how you can access and correct your Personal Information; and

•   how PML will facilitate or resolve a privacy complaint.

If you have any concerns or complaints about the manner in which your Personal Information has been collected, used or disclosed by us, we have put in place an effective mechanism and procedure for you to contact us so that we can attempt to resolve the issue or complaint.

In order to resolve a complaint, PML will:

•   liaise with you to identify and define the nature and cause of the complaint;

•   may request that you detail the nature of the complaint in writing;

•   will keep you informed of the likely time within which we will respond to your complaint;

•   will inform you of the legislative basis (if any) of our decision in resolving such complaint; and

•   keep a record of the complaint and any action taken in the Privacy Complaints Register.


You may make a privacy complaint with PML through the following contact details:

•   Email:

•   Fax: (08) 9456 9222

•   Post: Mail Point 1, Market City, 280 Bannister Rd Canning Vale WA 6155

•   Telephone: (08) 9456 9200

PML’s or their Legal Representative will then attempt to resolve the issue.

Under the Privacy Act, information from you is categorised as either Personal Information, or, as a subset of Personal Information, known as Sensitive Information.


The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) defines "Personal Information" to mean information or an opinion, whether true or not, and whether recorded in a material form or not, about you whose identity is reasonably identifiable, from the information or opinion.


2.1 Sensitive information is a subset of Personal Information. It includes, but is not limited to, information or an opinion about an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political organisation, religious beliefs or affiliations, philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional or trade association, membership of a trade union, sexual orientation or practices, criminal record or health information.

2.2 In general, PML attempts to limit the collection of Sensitive Information from you, but depending on the level and the type of activity that you intend to undertake at the Perth Markets, the uses you make of PML’s services and other circumstances that may arise at the Perth Markets, including without limitation emergencies, incidents, security requirements and accidents, this may not always be possible. Accordingly, PML may collect Sensitive Information from you in order to carry out our services, maintain site security and safety and to undertake investigations relating to incidents at the Perth Markets. However, we do not collect Sensitive Information from you without your consent.

2.3 The type of Sensitive Information PML may collect from you or record about you is dependent on the services provided to you by PML and will be limited to the purpose(s) for which it is collected.

2.4 Consent to collection of certain types of Sensitive Information.

a   PML may collect certain types of Sensitive Information where you have consented and agreed to the collection of this information.

b   Generally speaking, PML will obtain this type of consent from you at (or around) the time in which we collect information, for example, when PML receives an application form from you. However, the main type of Sensitive Information that PML may collect (if any) will typically   relate to the criminal record of an individual but only to the extent that you volunteer such information or if it is necessary for, or incidental to, the purposes of collection set out in paragraph 4.


3.1 PML will only collect Personal Information that is necessary to facilitate us providing our services to you, together with the management and regulation of the Perth Markets. The Personal Information that is collected by PML is held within our own data storage devices or with a third party provider of data storage.

3.5 Depending upon the reason for requiring the information, some of the information PML requests of you may be identified as mandatory or voluntary.
