Strata Management Group

This Privacy Policy will apply to all dealings with Strata Management Group, whether in person, or via telephone, email, correspondence or our website.

Strata Management Group will ensure that all officers, employees and subcontractors are aware of and understand our obligations as well as their own obligations under the Act.

Why does Strata Management Group collect personal information?

Strata Management Group collects personal information in order to carry on its business as a Body Corporate Manager and provider of administration and secretarial services for Body Corporate schemes.

In the course of managing Body Corporates we are likely to collect personal information about individual Owners and third parties. Below is the type of personal information collected from Owners:

  • Full name;
  • Address/es including residential address, business address and postal address;
  • Other contact details including telephone numbers and email addresses;

Strata Management Group does not collect sensitive information regarding individuals. Sensitive information includes but is not limited to information about an individual:

  • racial or ethnic origin;
  • religious beliefs or affiliations;
  • membership of a trade union;
  • sexual orientation or practices;
  • criminal record;
  • medical records.

If we receive sensitive information that we did not solicit, then we will (if it is lawful and reasonable) destroy the information.

Strata Management Group will, if it is reasonable or practicable to do so, collect personal information directly from the relevant individual.

Sometimes we will collect personal information from a third party or a publicly available source. For example, we may need to collect personal information from an individual’s legal adviser, from an individual’s past or current real estate agent or letting agent, from a resident unit manager or caretaker of a body corporate scheme in which the individual resides from an individual’s financial institution, etc.

How does Strata Management Group use personal information?

Any personal information collected by Strata Management Group will only be used and disclosed for the purpose for which it has been provided to us or as authorised under law.

We may use your contact details to send you firm newsletters, legal or other updates relating to community living or invitations to Strata Management Group seminars or events, which may be of interest to you. However, you may at any time opt out of receiving such materials (see the Contacting Us section for more information). Upon receiving such a request, we will remove your contact details from our distribution lists.

Strata Management Group may transfer your personal information to overseas countries including but not limited to the Philippines, in order to perform one or more of our functions or activities. In these circumstances, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the overseas recipient does not breach the Australian Privacy Principles in relation to the information.

Personal information may need to be disclosed to external service providers or third parties engaged by our office in order for those service providers to fulfil their service obligations to the firm.

For example:

  • IT service providers who assist in managing Strata Management Groups servers and networks may need to access client data in order to maintain the servers and networks;
  • Outsourcing contractors and individuals who are resident in the Philippines who carry out certain tasks and do work for Strata Management Group to assist in the performance of one or more of our functions or activities.


Personal information may be stored by Strata Management Group in hard copy or electronically. We are committed to keeping personal information secure and safe.

We will review and update our security measures from time to time.

In addition, we will review the personal information held by us from time to time, ensuring that information which is no longer needed for a purpose for which it was initially collected is destroyed or de-identified (provided it is lawful for us to do so).
