In order for us to operate the Platform, we need to handle Personal Information. We take privacy of Personal Information seriously. We comply with the Privacy Act as a matter of best practice.
It is important that:
Before supplying any Personal Information via the Platform, Users should ensure that there are no restrictions on them doing so.
We are not responsible for any mistake or negligence or other conduct on a User’s part where they supply Personal Information which they are not entitled to supply, but we will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify any such wrongfully supplied Personal Information within a reasonable timeframe after they have given us notice.
The kinds of Personal Information we may collect about Users and Third Parties include their name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, occupation, gender, age, date of birth, income, savings, insurance policies, bank accounts and financial information.
We may also ask a User to provide the following information:
We may also collect non-personal statistical information, in accordance with clause 12 below.
We may collect Personal Information about Users from themselves or another User.
We collect Personal Information where reasonably necessary for the proper function of the Platform. The ways in which we may collect Personal Information include:
Users agree that we may use or disclose Personal Information we collect for the following purposes:
Users agree that we will be entitled to disclose Output Data generated by the Platform (which may embody their Personal Information and Third Party Personal Information) to relevant Users and those Users shall have rights to distribute, copy and otherwise use the Output Data in accordance with the Platform T&Cs.
We will not sell or license any Personal Information to any third parties, however we may share and license non-personal statistical data to third parties, including analytics and research entities. We endeavour to aggregate this data in such a way as will de-identify individual Users.
In addition, the Privacy Act caters for particular situations called “Permitted General Situations” where Personal Information may be disclosed outside of the purposes listed above, such as to lessen or prevent a serious threat to public health or safety, or to assist in locating missing people. Other laws, or a court, might also legally compel us to disclose Personal Information.
We may store Personal Information in a variety of ways including in the cloud or other types of networked or electronic storage.
We may store and make back-up copies of Personal Information to ensure that we are able to recover information if our systems experience a fault or outage.
We may use Personal Information to offer Users new products and services, notify Users of new developments to the Platform, or for other commercial communications from us. By continuing to use the Platform, Users hereby consent to receiving such marketing communications. In delivering such communications, we may contact Users via e-mail. If a User does not wish to receive direct marketing communications from us, that you may opt-out by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We will always give Users an opportunity to opt-out of receiving future marketing communications.
We will not contact any Third Party for any of the purposes identified in this clause above unless we have the prior written consent of the Third Party.
We are not liable nor responsible for the way that Users collect, handle or use Third Party Personal Information. This is entirely the responsibility of the relevant User.
We cannot guarantee that Users (or any organisation of which they are associated) will treat Third Party Personal Information confidentially (whether it is incorporated into Output Data or not), as this is beyond our control.
Any handling of Users’ Personal information disclosed to any payment provider we may use via the Platform is out of our control and is entirely the responsibility of that payment provider. We will not be liable nor responsible for the payment provider’s handling of Users’ Personal Information.
Individuals can ask us to provide them with a copy of the Personal Information we hold about them. They do not need a reason for asking, but we may charge them for our reasonable expenses for preparing and sending them a copy of the requested Personal Information. We will try to respond to any such request within a reasonable timeframe. If the request would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others, the information is commercially sensitive, giving access would be unlawful or the request is frivolous or vexatious, we may not give a User the Personal Information requested.
We will take reasonable steps to see that the Personal Information we collect and store about Users is accurate, up-to-date and complete. To assist us, Users and Third Parties should provide correct details where requested for upload to the Platform, and let us know if they believe the information we have about them is inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date or misleading. If Users or Third Parties believe the Personal Information collected or used by us or a third party is false or inaccurate, they have a right to have this information corrected and we will endeavour to do so within a reasonable timeframe, at no expense to the relevant individual.
We take the security and safety of Users’ Personal Information seriously. We will take all reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from misuse, interference and loss, and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure and we cannot guarantee that Users’ Personal Information will only be viewed by persons who they wish to view their Personal Information. We also cannot guarantee that the Platform will be completely free from viruses, surveillance or interception.
We will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify Personal Information when we do not need it. However, it is each Users’ responsibility to ensure that they do not provide us with any Personal Information that we did not request from them. We may retain and use de-identified information.
We may use “cookies” to store data on a User’s device when they access the Platform. The information stored in the cookie would be used to identify a User’s browser or device. We use this information in order to enable us to operate an efficient service, to track the patterns of behaviour of Users of the Platform and to collect statistical information about visitors to the Platform, including but not limited to IP addresses, geographical location, how Users’ arrived at the Platform and information about the device being used to access the Platform such as the browser, operating system and/or mobile device type. We would collect this information in order to improve our Platform, direct the most appropriate content to Users and remember a User’s preferences for next time they access the Platform.
Please note that Users are able to opt out of cookie technology through changing the settings on their browser, but this may affect the way Users experience our Platform.
