Our use of your personal information
We generally use and disclose personal information for the purposes for which it was collected, as described above. This primarily involves carrying out our functions and activities, managing relations, or as otherwise required or authorised by law.
In fulfilling these purposes, we may disclose certain personal information to particular third-party service providers, as described below.
Where appropriate, we may handle personal information relying on exemptions that are available under applicable privacy laws, including, for example, provisions in the Privacy Act concerning the sharing of personal information among related bodies corporate.
Disclosure of your personal information
Disclosure to Chevron entities. Except as described below, personal information that you provide to Chevron via the Application and Loyalty Program will not be shared outside of Chevron, its subsidiaries and its affiliates and related corporations without your consent.
Disclosure to service providers. Chevron contracts with other companies, vendors and service providers, professional advisers and agents to provide services on our behalf, such as, programming (for apps or websites who use Chevron’s APIs or whose APIs Chevron uses), marketing and promotions, data processing, sending out information and communications, processing Loyalty Program transactions, and analysing the Application and Loyalty Program. We provide these companies with only those elements of personal information they need to deliver those services. These companies and their employees are prohibited by the terms of their contract with us from using that personal information for any other purposes.
Disclosure in connection with transactions. In connection with certain transactions, we may disclose some or all of the personal information you provide to financial institutions, government entities and shipping companies or postal services involved in fulfilling the transaction.
Disclosures in connection with acquisitions or divestitures. Circumstances may arise where for strategic or other business reasons Chevron decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganise particular businesses. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers or receiving it from sellers. It is Chevron's practice to seek protection for information in these types of transactions, however we cannot guarantee that any entity receiving such information from Chevron in connection with one of these transactions will comply with all of the terms of this Privacy Statement.
Disclosure on collaborative online platforms. Some of our websites or online forums or platforms promote collaboration among registered users with respect to a particular area or topic. On such online platforms, we may share your username with other participants to label comments or suggestions that you make as yours. We do not, however, share your name, contact details, or other personal information with other users of those collaborative platforms.
Chevron is committed to protecting your personal information. While no security measure can guarantee against compromise, loss or misuse (given the transmission of data over the Internet or any public network), we use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from misuse, interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification, or disclosure. Where Chevron discloses or provides any information to any contractor, vendor or service provider, we require that each such party maintains appropriate administrative, technical and physical security measures to protect your personal information from destruction, loss, and unauthorised access. For example, we store (or ensure that our service providers store) the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access that are located in facilities to which access is limited.
Security on the Internet. When you move around a website to which you have logged in, or from one site to another that uses the same login mechanism, we verify your identity by means of an encrypted cookie placed on your machine. If you place an order with us, view account information, or provide financial information, we protect the transmission of such data using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. Notwithstanding such measures, to the extent permitted under applicable law, including the Australian Consumer Law, under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, shall Chevron be liable for any loss or damage relating to, or any other consequences of, any unauthorised use, disclosure or loss of, or access to, your personal information.
For websites and applications to which you log in, it is your responsibility to ensure the security of your passwords (including the password to your device) and to not reveal this information to others. If you are sharing a device with anyone, you should always log out before leaving a website or application so that subsequent users will not be able to access your information.
Personal information retention
To the extent permitted by applicable law, we retain personal information we obtain about you as long as:
(i) it is needed for the purposes for which we obtained it, in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy Statement; or
(ii) we have another lawful basis, stated in this Privacy Statement or at the point of collection, for retaining that information beyond the period for which it is necessary to serve the original purpose for obtaining the personal information.
During the period that your Account is active, to the extent permitted by applicable law, Chevron will retain your personal information and other information collected, unless you expressly request us to delete the information. Chevron may retain the information after your Account is deactivated or deleted in the following circumstances (subject to applicable law):
(i) if we are required to retain such information by applicable law or regulation, or pursuant to any requirement of any government authority having jurisdiction over Chevron;
(ii) if there is an unresolved issue relating to your Account, such as an outstanding claim or outstanding credit or payment due; or
(iii) for legitimate business purposes, including fraud prevention.
Reviewing and correcting your personal information
You have a right to access and request correction of the personal information that we have about you. In some cases, you can review, and correct personal information provided through the Application by going to the page on which you provided the information. In some circumstances it may not be possible for us to provide you with access to all of your personal information or an exemption under the Privacy Act may apply. For instance, we may not provide access to information if disclosing that information would impact on the privacy of another individual. Where we will not provide access to personal information held about you, we will tell you why.
If you think that any personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, you may contact us using the contact details below and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the information is corrected. To help protect your privacy, we may take steps to verify your identity before providing you access to your personal information. You can help us to keep information about you accurate by notifying us of any change to your mailing address, phone number or email address.
Any requests for access to or correction of personal information will be responded to within a reasonable period after the request is made.
International disclosure of personal information
Personal information collected through the Application and Loyalty Program may be stored and processed in countries outside Australia, including the United States, Singapore, the Philippines and Japan (and the other countries around the world where our individual subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, or business partners maintain facilities) or any other country in which Chevron or its affiliates, joint ventures or (in the case where we engage a service provider to perform certain services) its service providers maintain facilities, including countries which may not have privacy or data protection laws similar to the laws in the country from which you initially provided the information. Chevron and its affiliates have in place a set of corporate policies, and where necessary uses data transfer agreements, to govern the transfer of information between its affiliates in different countries which upholds the principles for the protection of the privacy of information consistent with the Australian Privacy Principles. By choosing to use the Application and Loyalty Program and to provide information to us through it, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
If you consider that we have failed to resolve the complaint satisfactorily, you can also complain to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.
