The Engenco Group may also source health information where this is relevant to your employment with the Group, for example, where you may have an injury or disability relevant to the requirements necessary to perform your role.

The Engenco Group does not share any health information for any purpose other than your application for employment, provision of employment, or as part of our service offerings in our Workforce Solutions businesses, or as otherwise notified to you at the time we collect your information.

You can review the terms of any application or your contract with the relevant company in the Engenco Group for the categories of information we need to collect, so that we can provide you with the product or services you require.

Where the Engenco Group is collecting information for legal purposes, this is likely to be so we can comply with our legal and reporting obligations such as workplace health and safety, company and income taxation laws and financial reporting.

  • provide you (or the company you represent) with the products or services you are seeking from the Engenco Group

Where we transfer your personal information outside the European Union to countries that are not covered by an adequacy decision of the European Commission (as applicable), we use appropriate safeguards that include Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission as appropriate, or other applicable measures including transfers to a third party that has implemented Binding Corporate Rules or where the specific situations outlined under Article 49 of GDPR apply. Engenco Group entities are bound by an Intercompany Personal Data Transfer Agreement that contains Standard Contractual Clauses.

12. Keeping information accurate and up to date

We take reasonable steps to ensure that all information the Engenco Group holds is as accurate as possible. The rights that you have in relation to the information that we hold about you and how you may exercise these rights, is outlined in detail below.


The Engenco Group retains personal information in physical and electronic records, at our premises and the premises of our service providers, which may include processing or storage in the cloud. The majority of our cloud storage providers and data centres are located within the country in which you access the Engenco Groups’ products or services, however, where cloud storage services are utilised, your information may be backed-up in a different location and this may mean that your information could be stored outside Australia or the European Union. Where this occurs, the Engenco Group will protect the security and integrity of personal information as outlined above in International Information Transfers.

The Engenco Group keeps records of our interactions with you (including by telephone, email and online). We’re required to keep some of your information for certain periods of time in accordance with relevant laws and standards, such as under the Corporations Act, the Standards for Regulated Training Organisations, the ASX Listing Rules or the Fair Work Act. For example, we are required to keep your information for 3 years from the completion of industry training, 10 years from the termination of superannuation / pension fund facilities, and 7 years for financial records.

The Engenco Group may need to retain certain personal information after we cease providing you with products or services to ensure we comply with your direction not to receive marketing, or to resolve legal claims and/or for proper record keeping.

When the Engenco Group no longer requires your information for legitimate business purposes or to comply with relevant laws, we’ll ensure that your information is deleted, destroyed or de-identified.


The Engenco Group uses security procedures and technology to protect the information we hold. The Engenco Group has implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal information and ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk which includes cybersecurity controls, all employees being subject to confidentiality agreements, internal policies, auditing, training on handling personal information and monitoring of staff.

Where the Engenco Group engages third party service providers, we require them to take appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure the privacy of the information provided to them, and include such requirements in our contractual arrangements with them, to ensure compliance.
