How and why do we collect your personal information?
We may collect personal information about you, including:
- contact details;
- date of birth;
- demographic information;
- occupation or job title.
The primary purpose for which we collect information about you is to enable us to perform our business activities and functions.
The information that we collect will vary depending on the nature of our interaction with you. For example, you may:

- place an order with us;
- share your personal information during a visit from one of our sales representatives;
- participate in market research relating to our products; or
- apply for employment with iNova.
It is our usual practice to collect personal information directly from you. However, we may also obtain personal information from commercially available contact lists or publicly available sources where we are satisfied that you have consented to such collection or would reasonably expect us to collect your personal information in that way.
We will generally only use your personal information for the purpose for which it was collected, which may include:
- to provide you with goods or services requested by you;
- to enter you in competitions and notify you of the results;
- to send you job notices;
- to maintain records of enquiries, complaints and adverse event reports relating to our products;
- to provide you with secure access to our websites;
- to send you information about iNova’s products or therapeutic areas that may be of interest to you;
- to supply you with samples of iNova products;
- to administer conferences, symposia, expert panels, seminars or other meetings or events;
- to schedule appointments between you and one of our sales representatives;
- to report information as required under the Medicines Australia Code of Conduct;
- to process payments and carry out other business functions;
- to investigate complaints about you;
- to comply with any law.
If we cannot collect your personal information then we may not be able to provide you with information, goods or services that you have requested.

You acknowledge and agree that we are free to use and publish any information that you provide to us or post on our websites (on a non-confidential basis).

We maintain physical, technical and organisational measures to protect your personal information against misuse, interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
