Who We Are
QIC was established on 1 July 1991, under the provisions of the Queensland Investment Corporation Act, to provide superior wholesale funds management for its public clients and other approved organisations. QIC is a Queensland Government-owned statutory authority, which operates as a commercial enterprise and generates a return to the State Government. As permitted by its governing Act, QIC also has subsidiary companies and trusts, which are used to carry out certain activities, many related to our property investments.
QIC and its subsidiaries invest in major commercial and retail properties, owning and managing some of Australia's most successful shopping centres.
Collection Of Your Personal Information
We limit our collection of personal information to those details we identify as necessary for the lawful purposes of conducting our business and information is only collected by lawful and fair means, and in an unobtrusive way. In most cases information is collected directly from the individual concerned. The collection of sensitive information shall be further restricted as required by the law.
Where it is reasonable and practicable to do so, we will only collect personal information about you from you directly and not from third parties. However, in many instances, this will not be practicable. If we collect personal information about you from a third party then we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you receive the information that we are obliged to make you aware of. This may involve us contacting you directly, or a third party discharging our obligations on our behalf.
Use And Disclosure Of Your Personal Information
We will use personal information for the primary purpose for which it was collected. We will use and disclose personal information for the purpose of conducting our functions and activities as the owner and manager of the shopping centre or a related purpose such as marketing and promoting where you consent to such disclosure or such disclosure is permitted by the Act.
