AML respects your right to privacy and is committed to privacy protection. This page provides a brief summary about your privacy. You can also contact AML with any queries you have about protecting your privacy by sending an email to email@example.com
The Federal Government has introduced amendments to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cwth.) which affect the way private sector companies use and disclose personal information.
AML will ensure that all the personal information that it handles is managed in accordance with privacy legislation, and where applicable, in accordance with any of its published privacy codes.
What information do we collect?By nature of its business, AML collects and records information about vehicle movements. The following information is collected in relation to your use of the M1 Eastern Distributor.
1. When you use an Electronic Tag on the M1 Eastern Distributor, the following information may be recorded:
* The location of your Tag in a vehicle and the time of day
* The direction in which the vehicle was travelling
* Your account status
2. An image of your vehicle and its Licence Plate Number may be collected and recorded automatically when you pass through the toll plaza and do not pay the appropriate fee. This image may be used for infringement processing.
3. For the safety of our staff and other motorway users we employ video surveillance throughout our facilities and as such our security cameras may record an image of you or your vehicle.
4. The NSW Roads and Traffic Authority maintain video surveillance cameras at certain locations along the motorway for traffic, audit and management purposes. These records are not made available to AML.
Use and DisclosureAML will ensure that all personal information it collects is used only for those purposes that are necessary to the carrying on its business. The information will primarily be used to enable tolls payable for the use of the M1 Eastern Distributor to be accurately levied and recovered.
It may be necessary for AML to disclose personal information to organisations to which it has outsourced certain functions, such as the Operator and IT contractors (service providers). AML will do so on the basis that the contractors must appropriately safeguard the privacy of that information.
Arrangements between toll road operators and associated legal and regulatory authorities which are designed to minimise the complexity of transactions and facilitate customer service, by necessity involve the transfer of information between these parties. In the course of operating its business, AML (and/or its agents and contractors) provide information to the following organisations or types of organisations:
This website:When you visit the Eastern Distributor website under the domain name EasternDistributor.com ("this website") we collect certain anonymous information arising out of that visit. That information includes the date and time of the visit, how long the visitor spent at this Website and the pages that were viewed during the course of that visit.
None of this information allows us to personally identify you or your email address. The information is used by us in aggregated form to help us understand patterns of use of this website. We use that information to measure the effectiveness of this website and so that we can continually improve this website for you.
This website does not currently use "cookies" but it may do so in the future. Cookies are a type of file that websites may transfer to your hard drive to allow the website to identify your computer. Cookies do not enable you to be identified as an individual.
When you use applications on this website to send us your personal information, this website allows the security of your application information to be protected through the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encodes the content of communications so that they can only be understood by your computer and the computers being used to operate this website. Also, when information is sent over an encrypted SSL connection it has the additional protection of a mechanism which can detect whether the information has been altered in transit. For SSL technology to operate successfully, you will need an internet browser that is SSL-compatible and appropriately configured. Your browser could then tell you whether the information you are sending us will be secure (encrypted) or not secure (not encrypted).
Roads and Traffic Authority:AML is obliged to transfer information to the Roads and Traffic Authority for the purposes of violation infringement processing.
Law Enforcement Agencies:We will make personal information available to law enforcement or regulatory agencies only if Airport Motorway is served with a legally enforceable court order.
Research Institutions:AML may occasionally provide de-identified or anonymous data to other organisations or traffic authorities for traffic research purposes. In such cases AML will ensure there is no means of correlating the data to individual customers' personal information.
Tag Issuers:If you hold an Electronic Tag, information concerning your vehicle's use of the M1 Eastern Distributor will be provided to the issuer of that Tag in order to process payment of applicable tolls.
AML will not at any time sell or give its customers' personal information to other organisations for their marketing purposes.
Security and AccountabilityAML will, wherever possible, collect information directly from its customers. It will ensure that customers' personal information is managed and stored safely and securely and will take appropriate steps to ensure that the personal information is protected against unauthorized access, use disclosure or modification and against loss.
Access to the personal information stored will only be available to those personnel who reasonably require that access in order for tolls payable for the use of the M1 Eastern Distributor to be effectively and accurately levied and recovered. These may be employees of AML or Leightons Contractors Pty Ltd (the Operator of the M1 Eastern Distributor) or their respective related bodies corporate. It may also from time to time be necessary for agents and contractors of those entities to have access to the information in order to provide support services in connection with the M1 Eastern Distributor tolling system.
The Operator will manage the use of personal information through a regime of access rights, password protection and effective supervision to ensure customers' privacy is respected and maintained.
