4.2 How we collect and hold Personal Information
Where possible, personal information is collected directly from you with your consent at the time of your interaction with us. In some services, personal information is:

Where consent to collection is sought, it is sought voluntarily from you and we will inform you of what you are consenting to. Our consent agreements are current and specific to the services to be provided to you.
We will not collect sensitive information about you unless you have consented; it is required by law; or in other special specified circumstances, for example relating to health services provision and individual or public health or safety.
