You may optionally provide us with this information through third-party sign-in services such as search engines, social media, advertisements and websites used to access our site. We may also collect your personal information indirectly from third parties such as our service providers. Information collected indirectly may include usage details, IP addresses and information collected through cookies.
We may also collect your information via promotions, public records, mailing lists, contractors, staff, recruitment agencies, our business partners, and pixel tags. Pixel tags enable us to receive information about your use of our website and emails, such as when an email we have sent has been opened.
How we use and disclose your personal information
Using and disclosing personal information
We only hold, use and disclose personal information about you for the purposes outlined in section 2.2, or for related purposes which might be reasonably expected, unless we otherwise obtain your consent.
Such disclosure may include disclosure of your personal information to third parties who:
- are our service providers (such as web hosting or data storage providers);
- are regulatory bodies, government agencies, law enforcement bodies or courts;
- introduce you to us (such as by a referral); or
- are your authorised agents, executors, administrators or legal representatives.
We may also hold, use and disclose your personal information in connection with suspected fraud, misconduct and unlawful activity, and as part of acquisitions or potential acquisitions of our business.
On some occasions, we may be obliged to disclose your personal information by law, such as court orders or statutory notices pursuant to any legislation and to government authorities.
From time to time, we may use the personal information collected from you for direct marketing purposes, such as targeted advertising of our website, services, promotions, special offers and other information which we think you may find relevant and interesting. If we do contact you in this way, it will only be in relation to matters that customers would reasonably expect us to contact them directly about. We will ensure that our marketing activities comply with applicable laws.
We may contact you by telephone, email, SMS, instant messaging or other communication methods for these purposes.
We may utilise third-party service providers (such as Gmail from Google, Inc, and MailChimp from The Rocket Science Group LLC) to communicate to you and store your contact details. These service providers are located in the United States of America.
We will not sell your personal information to other third party organisations or allow them to contact you for direct marketing purposes.
If you no longer wish to receive any direct marketing communication from us, please follow the instructions for unsubscribing in our direct marketing communications. If there are no instructions, please contact us as set out in section 6 below.
Transferring your information overseas
Sometimes our third party agents, contractors or organisations are based overseas, or otherwise have data storage facilities overseas where your personal information will be stored. We may transfer information about you between countries if required for a relevant purpose described above. For example, some of our live chat functionality is provided by personnel located in the Republic of India. We note that the Republic of India is not subject to an adequacy decision by the European Commission.
We will take reasonable steps to ensure all overseas entities to whom we transfer your personal information take adequate safeguards for your personal information and do not breach the Privacy Act, including ensuring commercially reasonable and industry standard security measures are taken by those entities to protect your personal information from unauthorised access and use.
For further information on the safeguards that apply to international transfers of your personal information, please contact our Privacy Officer using the contact details in section 6 below.
Keeping personal information secure
We have security measures in place to protect your personal information that we hold. We take reasonable steps to ensure your personal information is protected from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
We may hold your information in either electronic or hard copy form. We have security measures to ensure the physical security of personal information held on our premises and systems. When records containing personal information are no longer required, we delete the information or permanently de-identify it.
Biznostics uses SSL encryption to store and transfer your personal information. However, as our website is linked to the Internet, we cannot provide any assurance regarding the security of transmission of information you communicate to us. We also cannot guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet. Accordingly, any personal information or other information which you transmit to us is transmitted at your own risk.
Access and correction of personal information
You are entitled by law to access the personal information we hold about you and, provided that it is reasonable and practicable, to do so in a manner that you request.
We will need to validate the identity of anyone making an access request, to ensure that we do not provide your information to anyone who does not have the right to that information.
We will provide you access within 30 days if it is reasonable and practicable to do so, but in some circumstances it may take longer.
If access is refused, we will give you a notice explaining our decision to the extent practicable and your options to make a complaint.
We do not usually charge you for access to your personal information. However, if the request is complex, we may charge you the marginal cost of providing the access, such as staff costs of locating and collating information or copying costs.
To contact us to access the personal information we hold about you, please use one of the methods outlined in section 6 below.
If you feel that any of the personal information we hold for you is incorrect, inaccurate or incomplete you can contact us at any time to request that we correct that information.
If you would like to do so please contact our Privacy Officer using the contact details in section 6 below.
We will normally try to resolve correction requests within 30 days of you making a request, but in some circumstances it may take longer.
There will be no cost to you if we correct your personal information held by us.
If we do not agree that your personal information needs to be corrected or changed, then we will add a note to the personal information stating that you disagree with it.
