We strive to provide our customers with responsive, reliable and great value services. Our parent company, Rentokil Initial Plc, is one of the largest business services companies in the world. The Rentokil Initial Group provides a range of services globally where our brands represent consistent quality of service.

Rentokil Initial collects personal information about individuals that we deal with in order to deliver our services and meet our legal obligations. We collect personal information about individuals who have contact with our business in Australia including:

(b) Our suppliers and individuals employed or engaged by our suppliers;

(c) Our employees and contractors providing services to us; and

(d) Individuals seeking employment or to provide services to us.

The type of personal information that will be collected depends upon the purpose for which it was obtained.

Information sought from employees, contractors or suppliers (or their personnel) will be relevant to their employment or services as applicable and sought for that purpose or related purposes. The type of personal information sought from them (and persons seeking to engage with us in those capacities) will include name, address, contact details, past employment or service provision history and medical and other information relevant to their employment or services. In some cases, we will ask them to consent to us acquiring and using sensitive information about them including background information and health information. We obtain personal information directly from the individual or from persons who have obtained it directly from the individual with consent. In some cases, such as with employees and contractors, the agreements entered into with those individuals or privacy collection notices will identify the information we will collect and the purpose for which it will be used or disclose.

We collect personal information about individual customers and from employees of customers so that we may provide the customer with services or provide information concerning products and services offered by Rentokil Initial and for the purpose of operating our business.

In some cases, we also obtain information from third parties such as builder customers, a credit reporting body or another credit provider.

The use of cookies on our websites is done in accordance with the Rentokil Initial Group cookies policy

We use and disclose personal information concerning individuals to provide our products and services, to administer our accounts, to operate and improve our business operations and as may otherwise be required or permitted by law.

In some cases we may collect personal information from individuals that is relevant to considering the provision of credit. We may also collect personal information from credit providers and credit reporting bodies and disclose personal information to those bodies where a customer has sought credit from us.

This company actually investigates the problem instead of just spraying your place and leaving. Very HIGH knowledge and experience in what they...read more do. They took the time to investigate the cause, the source of the problem and elimnated it completely which included going through every cupboard, cracks hiding spots the lot. We had a cochroach problem in our apartment for 3 months and we had 4 different companies come out and NONE of them investigated they only sprayed. After we called PestEx, Mr. Phillips was very knowledgeable and experienced eliminating our problem entirely. We also use PestEx in our shop and both Mr Phillips and Marty are EXCELLENT in resolving and maintaining pest problems. HIGHLY RECOMMEND PEST EX. BEST I'VE SEEN IN QUEENSLAND.
