Product and prices.
Changes may have been made to products and services since the editorial deadline for individual pages. The manufacturer reserves the right to make changes to the design, form, colour and the product specification or service scope during the delivery period, provided these changes, while taking into account our interests, can be deemed reasonable with respect to the buyer.

Cautions regarding forward-looking statements.
This website contains forward-looking statements about our current assessment of future events. The words "anticipate", "assume", "believe", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "may", "plan,“ "project“, "should“ and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. These statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties.
Some examples for this are
- an unfavourable development of the global economic situation, especially a decline in demand in our most important sales markets,
- a deterioration in our refinancing options on the credit and financial markets,
- unavoidable events of force majeure, such as natural disasters, acts of terrorism, political unrest, armed conflicts, industrial accidents and their consequential effects on our sales, purchasing, production or financing activities,
- changes in exchange rates and customs regulations,
- a change in consumer behaviour towards smaller and less profitable vehicles or a possible loss of acceptance of our products and services with the consequence of an impairment in the enforcement of prices and in the utilisation of production capacities,
- price increases for fuels and raw materials,
- interruptions in production due to material bottlenecks, staff strikes or supplier insolvencies,
- a decline in the resale prices of used vehicles,
- the successful implementation of cost reduction and efficiency improvement measures,
- the business prospects of the companies in which we hold significant shares,
- the successful implementation of strategic cooperations and joint ventures,
- the changes in laws, regulations and official directives, especially insofar as they affect vehicle emissions, fuel consumption and safety,
- as well as the conclusion of ongoing official investigations or investigations initiated by authorities and the outcome of pending or threatening future legal proceedings
- and other risks and imponderables, some of which are described in the current annual report under the heading "Risk and Opportunity Report".
If any of these uncertainties or contingencies materialise, or if the assumptions underlying any of the forward-looking statements prove incorrect, then actual results may be materially different from those expressed or implied by such statements.
We neither intend nor assume any obligation to update forward-looking statements on an ongoing basis, as these are based solely on the circumstances on the date of publication.
The information and descriptions on these pages do not represent any kind of assurance or guarantee either expressed or implied. In particular they do not represent any implied assurance or guarantee concerning the condition, the merchantability, adequacy for a particular purpose or non-infringement of laws and patents.
Our Internet site contains links to external sites which are not under the control of Daimler. Please note, therefore, that we are not responsible for the contents of any linked site. Consequently, neither are we able to guarantee that the information provided on the external website is up-to-date, correct, complete or of the required integrity. In view of this, we hereby disassociate ourselves from all contents of these websites. This declaration applies to all links to external pages on our website and the contents thereof.

This Privacy statement has been developed to assure you that we are committed to responsible privacy practices.
At Patterson Cheney Pty Ltd, we recognise the importance of your privacy and understand your concerns about the security of the personal information you provide to us.
We comply with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) as set out in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) and the Credit Reporting Code Australia (CR Code), which details how various types of personal, sensitive and credit information may be collected, used, disclosed, stored and destroyed, and how an individual may gain access to or make complaints about the personal information held about them.
We reserve the right to revise this Policy or any part of it from time to time. Please review the Policy periodically for changes.
Personal Information – is information or an opinion about an identified individual, or about an individual who is reasonably identifiable.

What personal information we collect and hold
We will only collect personal information by lawful and fair means, in accordance with the Privacy Act. For fleet and commercial transactions, we will collect a range of business information, but the collection of some personal information in these instances is still necessary or unavoidable. For consumer transactions, we will collect personal information from and about you.
The kinds of personal information we collect from you or about you depend on the transaction you have entered into with us, the goods and services you or your organisation have contracted us to provide, and the goods and services you or your organisation are interested in.
• If you are a current or prospective retail customer of ours, the kinds of personal information that we commonly collect and hold from you or about you include: your name, address, gender, date of birth, fax numbers, telephone numbers, email address, drivers licence details, vehicle registration details, details of your current and previous vehicles, occupation and employment details, voice (eg, from inbound and outbound telephone call recordings for quality, training and record purposes), image (eg, from CCTV and security surveillance, and videos and photos at events), location (eg, from anti-theft vehicle tracking technology in loan, courtesy and demonstrator vehicles), personal interests, personal preferences (eg, your preferred vehicle specifications), financial and credit information (eg, when you apply for credit and/or make a purchase).
• If you are a prospective employee or contractor of ours, the kinds of personal information that we commonly collect and hold from you or about you may include: your name, address, gender, date of birth, telephone numbers, voice and image, email address, qualifications, citizenship, visa and migration status and ability to work, education, employment experience, background checks, fitness for work checks and referee checks.
Generally, we do not seek to collect sensitive or health information from you or about you. However, your drivers’ licence details may disclose some sensitive information to us, and we may collect relevant sensitive information about you (eg, health information, immigration status, background checks, criminal history, etc) if you are applying for a position with us. We may also collect sensitive information from you or about you where there is a legal requirement to do so, or where we are otherwise permitted by law. In all other situations, we will specifically seek your consent.

How and why we collect and hold personal information
We aim to collect personal information only directly from you unless it is unreasonable or impracticable for us to do so. We collect and hold your personal information as necessary to provide our goods and services to you or your organisation.
For example, we collect personal information from you or about you:

We only collect personal information for purposes which are reasonably necessary for, or directly related to our business functions, the provision of our goods and services, and other activities as permitted under the Privacy Act.:
Importantly, we also collect and receive personal information about you from third parties, including:
• affiliated third party service providers to you or our business (including financiers and insurers);

• if not, then we will destroy or remove identifying components in the information as soon as practicable, but only if lawful and reasonable to do so.
You can be anonymous or use a pseudonym when dealing with us, unless:
• the use of your true identity is a legal requirement; or
• it is impracticable for us to deal with you on such basis.
If we do not collect, hold, use or disclose your personal information, or if you choose not to provide certain personal information to us or do not consent to our collection, holding, use or disclosure of your personal information, we may not be able to:

• for other purposes related to your or your organisation’s dealings with us.
Where we use your personal information for marketing and promotional purposes, you can opt out at any time by notifying us. Opt out procedures are also included in our marketing communications.
We may also collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information in circumstances that are required or permitted by law, where that is necessary for us to comply with our legal obligations. For example, we will share your personal information with government departments and enforcement bodies where required or permitted by law or legal process (eg, when necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraud or illegal activity).
Where we wish to use or disclose your personal information for other purposes, we will obtain your consent.

Data Security - How we hold and store personal information
We take reasonable steps to protect the personal information we hold against loss, unauthorised access, use, modification or disclosure and against other misuse. The measures taken to protect personal information include password protection for accessing our electronic information, paper files being in locked cabinets, access restrictions and conducting staff training on how to protect personal information we hold.
The following staff members have access to relevant employee and personnel records on a need-to-know basis:
• Managers and/or supervisors
• Staff involved in the recruitment and selection process
• Human Resources staff.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. The measures we take include:
• storing personal information held on paper in locked offices in secure premises;
• protecting personal information electronically, including credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with an AES-SHA256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards; and
Data Security – Destruction and De–identification
We will retain your personal information while it is required for any of our business functions, activities and services, or for any other lawful purpose.
When the personal information that we collect is no longer required, we use secure methods to destroy or permanently de-identify your personal information. As an example, our destruction and de-identification methods may include:
• Paper records being placed in security bins and/or shredded; or
• Electronic records being deleted from all locations, to the best of our ability, or encrypted and/or placed beyond use.
Our business is affiliated with many other businesses located overseas, such as vehicle manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers. In the course of doing business with you, we will disclose some of your personal information to these overseas recipients, particularly where:
• it is necessary to complete the transaction you have entered into (eg, the use of web-based and app-based service platforms, and the notification and registration of your vehicle’s warranty to the vehicle manufacturer, etc); and
• you have provided consent; or
• we believe on reasonable grounds that the overseas recipient is required to deal with your personal information by enforceable laws which are similar to the requirements under the APPs; or
• it is otherwise permitted by law.
Whilst it is not practicable to list every country or region in which the overseas recipients are located, recipients of such disclosures are likely to include:
• Africa, Europe and Asia
Please review the policy of Mercedes-Benz Australia Pacific for more information on this.
Data quality – How you may make requests for access and correction of the personal information held about you
We have procedures in place for dealing with and responding to requests for access to, and correction of, the personal information held about you. You may request access to the personal information held about you by contacting us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
In most cases, we expect that we will be able to comply with your request. However, if we do not agree to provide you access or to correct the information as requested, we will give you written reasons why. For further information, please contact us on email@example.com.
We will respond to a correction request within a reasonable period of time. We will not charge you for making the request, or for correcting the personal information, or for associating any statement with the personal information. We will provide you with written notice if we refuse to correct the personal information as requested by you. The written notice will set out:
• the reason for refusal (unless this would be unreasonable);
• the mechanisms available to complain about the refusal; and
• any other matter prescribed by regulation.
We will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we use or disclose is accurate, complete and up to date, having regard to the purpose of the use or disclosure. We rely on the personal information we hold about you to efficiently provide our goods and services. For this reason, it is very important that the personal information we collect from you is accurate, complete and up-to-date. To assist us to keep our records up-to-date, please notify us on pcctmarketing @pattersoncheney.com.au of any changes to your personal information.
Current and past employees’ personnel files are exempt from the application of the Privacy Act in certain circumstances and therefore are not accessible to the relevant individual. However, should correction of the information contained in personnel files be required the new information needs to be supplied to the Human Resources Department in the required format.
If we suspect that a data breach has occurred, we will undertake an assessment into the circumstances of the suspected breach within 30 days after the suspected breach has occurred. Where it is ascertained that a breach has actually occurred and where required by law, we will notify the Privacy Commissioner and affected individuals as soon as practicable after becoming aware that a data breach has occurred.
Complaints and concerns
We will respond to your complaint in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Privacy Act. Specifically, we will investigate your complaint and respond to you with our findings and our proposed action, within 30 days. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the complaint or the investigation, you may refer your complaint to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.
