Collection of your personal information
There are many aspects of the site, which can be viewed without providing personal information. However, we may collect personal information directly from you when you ‘register your interest’ to obtain the information brochure of our projects. Your personal information will also be collected for access to future DevCorp customer support features, this may include but not limited to a unique username and password, or provide sensitive information in the recovery of your lost password.

DevCorp will only use the personal information collected via the Website for the purpose which has either specified or reasonably apparent at the time when the information was collected.
From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will use for these new purposes only, data collected from the time of the policy change forward will adhere to our updated practices.
DevCorp may occasionally hire other companies to provide services on our behalf in the course of our ordinary business operation, including but not limited to handling customer support enquiries, processing transactions or customer freight shipping.
Some of the third parties to whom we disclose your personal information may be located outside Australia. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they reasonably need to deliver the service.
