The Myparcel website uses SSL data encryption and a Certificate Authority to prevent the interception of any details you provide to the website over the internet via your browser.
What we use your personal information for
Myparcel will only use or disclose your personal information for the primary purpose for which it was collected, or a directly-related secondary purpose. In other words, we will only use your personal information in a way in which you would be likely to expect us to use it. Some of the main purposes for which we use personal information are:
a. Sale of freight products and services
Myparcel will use your personal information to provide or assist in providing products and services as described on our website. We may need to use it to contact you, provide advice to you or request information from you regarding purchased freight products and services.
b. Payments, invoices and receipts
We use your personal information to process payments made by you for products and services purchased from us. This includes the generation of invoices, receipts and other retail transaction documents.
c. Promotion and marketing
Myparcel may use your personal information for direct marketing, such as emailing you our newsletters, information about our products and services and upcoming freight industry events. Our direct marketing will always contain an ‘unsubscribe’ mechanism, and we will remove you from our direct marketing lists if you ‘unsubscribe’. If we receive your personal information from a third party, we will only use it for direct marketing purposes if you have consented, and have not unsubscribed.
We sometimes use photographs taken at freight industry events, which may include photographs of attendees, on our website and social media platforms or in our promotional and marketing materials.

Myparcel may, in accordance with the above specific purposes only, disclose your personal information to:
- Our employees;
- Financial institutions;
- Freight companies;
- Our auditors or other contractors;
- The Australian Taxation Office;
- Anyone you authorise us to disclose it to.
Other than the above, we will not disclose your personal information without your consent unless disclosure is necessary to prevent a threat to life or health, authorised or required by law, reasonably necessary to enforce the law or necessary to investigate a suspected unlawful activity.
Storing your personal information
Myparcel stores your personal information in our electronic databases. In certain circumstances we may also store some of your personal information in our hard copy files.
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information whether it is stored electronically or as hard copy.
