Information Sharing

Maxx Marine PTY LTD only shares personal information with other companies or individuals outside of Maxx Marine PTY LTD in the following limited circumstances:

  • We have your consent. We require opt-in consent for sharing any sensitive personal information.
  • We provide such information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, or other trusted businesses or persons for processing on our behalf. These parties agree to process such information based on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
  • We believe that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues, or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of Maxx Marine PTY LTD, its users, or the public as required or permitted by law.

In the event of Maxx Marine PTY LTD being involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of some or all of its assets, we will ensure the confidentiality of any personal information involved in such transactions. We will also provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Information Security

We implement appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. These measures include internal reviews of our data collection, storage, and processing practices, as well as security measures like encryption and physical security measures to safeguard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.
Access to personal information is restricted to Maxx Marine PTY LTD employees, contractors, and agents who need that information to process it on our behalf. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may face disciplinary action, including termination and criminal prosecution, for failing to meet these obligations.

Accessing & Updating Personal Information

When you use Maxx Marine PTY LTD services, we strive to provide you with access to your personal information and either correct this data if it is inaccurate or delete it at your request if not required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes.
We request individuals to identify themselves and the information they wish to access, correct, or remove before processing such requests. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required. In cases where we provide information access and correction, this service is offered free of charge, except if doing so would require disproportionate effort. Note that residual copies of your information may remain on our active servers for a period of time after deletion and may also be retained in our backup systems.


Maxx Marine PTY LTD regularly reviews its compliance with this Privacy Policy. When we receive formal written complaints, it is Maxx Marine PTY LTD‘s policy to contact the complainant regarding their concerns. We cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints about the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Maxx Marine PTY LTD and an individual.
