Ltd. and their controlled, associated or related entities, including any funds managed by them (each, being “Goodman”, Goodman Group”, “we”, “us”, “our”) recognize the importance of protecting the privacy and rights of individuals in relation to their personal data.
In general terms, personal data is any data that can be used to personally identify you. This may include your name, address, telephone number, email address and profession or occupation. If the data we collect personally identifies you, or you are reasonably identifiable from it, that data will be considered personal data. The term may be given a specific definition under privacy legislation which may apply in jurisdictions in which we operate. If this is the case, Goodman will treat in that jurisdiction that information or data as personal information or data for the purpose of the privacy legislation applying in that jurisdiction.

Subject to any restrictions under any legislation in the jurisdiction in which the information was collected, we may send you direct marketing communications and information about our services that we consider may be of interest to you. These communications may be sent in various forms, including mail, SMS, WeChat and other messaging services and email, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
If you indicate a preference for a method of communication, we will endeavour to use that method whenever practical to do so. In addition, at any time you may opt-out of receiving marketing materials from us by contacting us (see the details below) or by using opt-out facilities provided in the marketing communications and we will then ensure that your name is removed from our mailing list.
We do not provide your personal data to other organizations for the purposes of direct marketing by them.
You are entitled to access or correct any personal data we hold about you at any time by contacting us (see the details below). Where we hold data that you are entitled to access, we will try to provide you with a suitable means of accessing it (for example, by mailing or emailing it to you) within the time limits prescribed under applicable laws and regulations.
There may be instances where we cannot grant you access to the personal data we hold. For example, we may need to refuse access if granting access would interfere with the privacy of others or it would result in a breach of confidentiality. If that happens, we will give you written reasons for the refusal.
Goodman prefers that complaints about breaches of privacy be made in writing, so we can be sure about the details of the complaint. Goodman’s Privacy Officers will normally deal with privacy complaints. Otherwise, the complaint will be dealt with by someone who was not involved in the conduct that your complaint is about. Goodman will attempt to confirm as appropriate and necessary with your understanding of the conduct relevant to the complaint and what you expect as an outcome. Goodman will, within the time limits prescribed under applicable laws and regulations, inform you whether Goodman will conduct an investigation, the name, title, and contact details of the investigating officer and the estimated completion date for the investigation process.
After Goodman has completed its enquiries, we will contact you, usually in writing, to advise the outcome and invite a response to our conclusions about the complaint. If we receive a response from you, Goodman will assess it and advise if Goodman has changed its view. If you are unsatisfied with the outcome, Goodman will advise further options including, if appropriate, review by the relevant Government departments and agencies.
Subject to any restrictions under any legislation in the jurisdiction in which the information was collected, we may disclose personal data to our controlled, associated or related entities and third party suppliers and service providers located overseas for some of the purposes listed above.

We take reasonable steps to ensure that the overseas recipients of your personal information or data do not breach the privacy obligations relating to your personal information or data.
