Collecting your Personal Information
We will not collect any personal information about an individual without their consent. The only personal information collected is what is provided voluntarily by a current or prospective shopper, interviewer, agent or client.
We collect personal information primarily to enable us to provide our services to and communicate with shoppers, interviewers, agents and clients.
When a shopper, interviewer or agent registers with us personal information will be requested in order for us to provide information and updates relevant to our business. You are not obliged to provide information however the failure to do so may result in The Realise Group being unable to provide services to you.
Personal information is collected directly from shoppers, interviewers and agents when they personally complete or submit an application form or sign up to become a shopper, interviewer or agent. This can be done online via our website, by email, by phone or other compatible device through downloading our Field Agent app.
Collecting Sensitive Information
Generally speaking – we don’t need sensitive information about you.
There may be times, however, where this information is relevant to determine whether or not you are eligible for a job we wish to deploy to shoppers, interviewers or agents. This kind of information will only be collected with your permission, and we will only use it for the purpose in which you provided it.
Such information will not be used or disclosed for any other purpose without your consent, except in exceptional cases when disclosure may be required by law.

There are circumstances under the Australian privacy laws where we may not give you access to the personal information we hold about you. For example, we can’t give you access if it would unreasonably affect someone else’s privacy or if giving you access poses a serious threat to someone’s life, health or safety.
