Cellestis Limited, a QIAGEN company Privacy Statement

Cellestis Limited and its subsidiaries are concerned about protecting your privacy.  Our businesses are governed by obligations under the Australian Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 and the National Privacy Principles (NPPs), and our own policies and procedures.

This statement sets out our commitment to the privacy of personal information.  Please note that in Australia this Privacy Statement does not apply to current or former employee records as they are exempt under the Australian Act.

Collection & Use of Personal Information
The type of personal information which is collected across the corporate group is limited as we only collect personal information that is necessary for the activities and functions of the group.  The kinds of personal information we collect and hold will depend on your interaction with us.  From time to time we may collect personal information when you register as a customer or a supplier, apply for an employment position or contract engagement, or become part of a marketing list as a key contract for a client organisation.

When you provide us with personal information we will inform you of how the information will be used and disclosed.  In all cases your information will be held in strict confidence.

If you wish to remain anonymous in dealing with us, we will assist you to do so, where lawful and practicable.
You may refuse a request from us to collect personal information about you.  If you do, we will tell you of the main consequences of your refusal.

Where personal information is obtained through another part, for example, a recruitment consultant or a supplier, personal information will only be used if we can ensure that we are protecting your privacy and meeting our legislative obligations.

We also collect some information from you when you use our website.  Your use of the facilities and services available through our website will determine the amount and type of information which we collect about you.  Some of this information will not be personal information because it will not reveal your identity.

The only personal information which we collect about you when you use our website is what you tell us about yourself.  For example when you send us an email, we will record your email address.

You may browse some information-only areas of the Cellestis website without providing any personal information. However, we may not be able to provide the full range of services if you do not provide the information requested.

The Cellestis website may contain links to websites operated by third parties. These third party websites should contain their own privacy statements and those third parties are responsible for informing you about their own privacy practices.

  • From time to time we may disclose the personal information, other information or data we collect from you for a purpose different to the purpose specified to you at the time of collection if:
  • you would reasonably expect us to disclose it for that purpose and the purpose was related to the purpose specified a the time the information was collected, or
  • We were legally required to co-operate with agencies performing law enforcement functions.
We will not sell, reveal, distribute, share or pass on personal information unless we have obtained your consent or are confident that we have acted in accordance with the appropriate legislation.
