Augment Talent (Augment) is committed to protecting your privacy and we manage personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 and Australian Privacy Principles.
We only collect information that is reasonably necessary for the proper performance of our activities or functions.

Collection of information
The personal details we collect from your application includes information such as email address, name, telephone number, education, employment history, skills as well as your resume. This list, however, is not conclusive and is open to change. For example in the course of identifying suitable employment opportunities for you, we may make enquiries of referees whose names you have provided to us. This information will be added to that which we already hold on you. We will always provide a copy of all personal information we hold on you should you request it. If you request us to delete all information we hold on you from our database, we will do so.
Photos & Images
We will request that you supply photographs or scan photo ID, along with any relevant visa documentation, on occasion where we secure contract or freelance work for you. This may be required prior to securing work where we need to clarify your working rights for a prospective employer or client. Gathering these documents and photo ID is as part of an ATO requirement, and Augment is required to hold copies of these on file for anyone employed though Augment. In the event we retain photos or images of you for use in the recruitment process whilst you are not employed with Augment, they will be retained unless you request they be destroyed.
Use and disclosure of personal information
In some circumstances we may collect personal and sensitive information. This personal and sensitive information will be used in connection with your actual or possible work placement as well as our assessment of your ongoing performance and prospects. As mentioned above, this information could be in the form of:
Results of inquiries that we might make of your former employers, work colleagues, professional associations or registration body;
Results of any competency or medical tests;
Performance feedback (whether positive or negative);
Additional information about you which you have provided to us.
Your personal information may be disclosed to:
Potential and actual employers and clients of Augment;
Other consultants at Augment in connection with possible employment opportunities;
Any person or body with a lawful entitlement to obtain information.
If you do not provide Augment with the information we seek, we may be limited in our ability to locate suitable employment for you.
Your details will not be disclosed to any person, body or organisation for any purpose other than the securing of employment for you.
We may contact you by the email, phone or other address which you provide to us in order to:
Inform you about new job vacancies;
Share market or industry news;
Advise you as to the progress of your application;
Respond to a request for information or a product or service;
