The nature of personal information collected by Cool Roof Restoration generally comprises an individual’s name, address, phone number, e-mail address as well as interests and information about your transactions with us.

In addition, Cool Roof Restoration may use and disclose your personal information for purposes related to the initial purpose of collection if that other purpose would be within your reasonable expectations.

Whilst personal information may be provided to these licensors and suppliers in order to enable them to perform the agreed tasks, Cool Roof Restoration will make every effort to ensure that the supplier handles the personal information in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles and confidentiality principles.
