Yost Group Properties will not use or disclose personal information about an individual other than for its original (primary) purpose. The use or disclosure of the information for another purpose (secondary purpose) is not permitted unless the person has consented to its use or disclosure for that other purpose.
Yost Group Properties will take reasonable steps to protect any personal information it holds from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. If the information is no longer needed, it will be destroyed or permanently de-identified.
As a general rule, Yost Group Properties will not collect sensitive information. However, where sensitive information is to be collected, it will only be collected, used and disclosed with the individual’s consent.
