Privacy Policy

Australian Privacy Statement and Policy of Motorola Solutions

1. Background/introduction

Motorola Solutions is committed to ensuring the privacy of your personal information. We recognise that you are concerned about your privacy and about the confidentiality and security of personal information that Motorola Solutions may hold about you.

2. Purpose

This Privacy Statement and Policy is made and provided by Motorola Solutions Australia Pty Limited (Motorola Solutions, us, we or our).

The document explains how Motorola Solutions collects, uses, discloses and otherwise handles personal information. It also seeks to explain how individuals can access and correct the personal information we may hold about them to complain to us.

We may change this Privacy Statement and Policy from time to time without notice to reflect our current privacy practices.

3. Scope

This Privacy Statement and Policy covers any personal information (including sensitive information) that we may hold about you.

Personal information is any information about you where your identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information. Examples include an individual's name, address, telephone number and email address.

Sensitive information includes health and genetic information and information about racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious beliefs or affiliations, philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional or trade association, membership of a trade union, sexual preferences or practices, criminal record and some types of biometric information.

4. Our obligations

Motorola Solutions is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act). The Privacy Act imposes obligations on us with respect to the manner in which we may collect and handle any personal information that we hold about you.

We are also required to comply with more specific privacy legislation in some cases, such as applicable State and Territory privacy-related legislation, the Spam Act 2003 (Cth) and the Do Not Call Register Act 2006 (Cth).

Motorola Solutions has adopted a set of binding corporate rules (BCRs), which have been approved by the appropriate Data Protection Regulators in the European Union, effective May 2, 2013. For a copy of Motorola Solutions BCRs please click here.

The BCRs ensure that personal data of covered individuals in the European Union is protected while being processed by any of MSI's affiliates around the world. The information commissioner's Binding Corporate Rules Authorization is available at the ICO UK Web site. For more information please click here.

Although employee records are exempt from the Privacy Act, we will seek to apply the same protection to the personal information of our employees as we do to other personal information.

5. Collection of personal information

Why we collect personal information

We only collect personal information that we need for business purposes, primarily providing or marketing our services to our customers, including personal information needed to:

• establish or verify someone's identity

• process customer orders and open and manage customer accounts

• deliver requested products and services

• conduct credit checks

• issue invoices for services that we may provide

• contact customers about appointments

• follow up with customers to determine satisfaction with our products and services

• notify customers of upcoming events of interest

• respond to specific inquiries or issues raised with us

• administer contractual agreements necessary to provide services to our customers;

• meet legal and regulatory requirements

• allow us to provide products or services or to deal with the customer or organisation through their representative.

Other Business purposes for which we might need to collect personal information include research and development, protecting intellectual property, internal operation, procurement and supplier management and general employment matters, including recruitment both internally and externally.

The types of personal information we collect include names, position, contact and address details, information in identification documents (for example, passport, driver's licence), tax file numbers and other government-issued identification numbers, date of birth and gender, bank account details, superannuation fund details and next of kin information.

We will not collect sensitive information about you without your consent and will only collect such information when it is reasonably necessary for one or more of our functions or activities. For example, we may need to collect the medical or health related information about one of our current or past employees for work health and safety issues, to process or respond claims or to meet our legal obligations as an employer.

Where we seek personal information about you, but are not able to obtain some or all of the personal information we request, this may affect or inhibit our ability to offer or provide a product or service to you or the customer or organisation you represent.

We may sell or buy other businesses or entities. In such event, we may transfer or assign the information we have collected as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control to another company. In such transactions, your personal Information may be included in the transferred business assets. Such company will assume the rights and obligations regarding your personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy. You agree that we can accordingly assign, sell, license or transfer any personal information that you have provided to us to those third parties directly involved in the transfer or disposition of such assets.

Also, in the unlikely event of our bankruptcy or insolvency, your personal information may be included in the transferred assets to third parties.

How we personal information collect

We will collect personal information from you by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way and only for the particular purpose that you provided it, or for a directly related purpose.

We will normally collect your personal information directly from you, unless it is unreasonable or impractical to do so.

In most cases, we will collect information about you when:

• you fill in an application form;

• you deal with us over the telephone or e-mail us

• you ask us to contact you after visiting our web site;

• you have contact with us in person; or

• we request it from third party commercial and business information providers.
