Privacy

This Privacy Policy explains how your personal information will be treated when you become a member of the Site, use the Site and/or access the Site via any third-party sites that you agree to link to your Site account (“Third Party Sites”).

If you have any further questions about the Company’s privacy practices, please contact us at contact@profilr.com.au.

We endorse fair information handling practices and uses of information in compliance with our obligations under the privacy laws in force in Australia from time to time.

Why and when the Company collects your information

We hold information that you have provided to us about yourself directly through the Site, and Third Party Sites. We also collect information about your use of the Site and Third Party Sites.

This information may include:

  • information provided in registering for the Site and Third Party Sites – for example, your name and contact details;

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but you can disable this function by changing your browser settings if you so wish.

If you upload your CV and Personal Information to your profile on the Site, we may share the information we collect about you, including Personal Information you provide to us, with other users of the Site.

We also collect information to improve and expand the content of the Site and to better engage with our Site’s users.

We may also use information we collect about you and your Personal Information for related purposes such as:

The Company may use your information or provide your information to third parties to contact you for marketing purposes including but not limited to new products, services, promotions, giveaways, via email and telephone. If you do not wish to receive any marketing communications from the Company, you may opt-out and stop the delivery of future promotional material by following the special instructions in the email you receive. These instructions will tell you how to remove your name from the Company’s promotional list.

The Company may also use such information to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour.

How long we will you keep your Personal Information

We will keep your Personal Information for as long as it is required to provide you with our services and to comply with legal requirements.

If we no longer require your Personal Information for any purpose, including legal purposes, we will take reasonable steps to securely destroy or permanently de-identify your Personal Information.

Sharing your information with others

The Company recognises the trust you place in us when you give us your Personal Information. Other than disclosure to service providers (explained below) or as required by law (for example, disclosure to various Government departments or to courts), our policy is that we do not give your Personal Information to other organisations unless we have disclosed the use in this policy or you have given us your consent to do so.

The service providers we may share your Personal Information with are the providers of the electronic systems we use to collect and store your Personal Information; banks and financial institutions you use to make payments to us (if any); and other service providers we use to help us run aspects of our business efficiently including other registered users of the Site. Users of the Site based overseas may view the material uploaded by you onto your profile on the Site, however we will not actively disclose your Personal Information to third parties based overseas.

Occasionally the Company might also use your Personal Information for other purposes or share your information with another organisation because:

  • we believe it is necessary to provide you with a service which you have requested;
  • we believe it is necessary to protect the rights, property or personal safety of another Site user;
  • we believe it is necessary to do so to prevent or help detect fraud or serious credit infringements - for example, we may share information with other, credit reporting agencies, law enforcement agencies and fraud prevention units;
  • we believe it is necessary to protect the interests of the Company – for example, disclosure to a court in the event of legal action to which the Company is a party; or
  • the assets and operations of the Company’s business are being transferred to another party as a going concern.

When we share information with other organisations and service providers as set out above, we do so in accordance with this Privacy Policy. To the extent that these organisations and service providers gain access to your Personal Information, their use is governed by the rules set out in the Privacy Act 1988.

Accessing information we keep about you

You can access the Personal Information we hold about you at any time. Simply contact us to make your request at contact@profilr.com.au.

We will always endeavour to meet your request for access. However, in some circumstances we may decline a request for access. This includes the following circumstances:

  • we no longer hold or use the information;
  • providing access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of other persons;
  • the request is frivolous or vexatious;
  • the information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings and would not normally be disclosed as part of those proceedings;
  • providing access would be unlawful;
  • providing access would be likely to prejudice the detection, prevention, investigation and prosecution of possible unlawful activity; and
  • the information would reveal our commercially sensitive decision-making processes.

If we decline your request for access, we will give you reasons for our decision when we respond to your request.

We reserve the right to charge you a reasonable fee for access to some types of information. These charges will be limited to the cost of recouping our expenses for providing you with information, such as document retrieval, photocopying, labour and delivery.

Despite anything contained in this Policy to the contrary, the Freedom of Information Act 1982 continues to apply to any Personal Information held by us. The access and correction requirements in the Privacy Act 1988 operate alongside and do not replace other informal or legal procedures by which an individual can be provided access to, or correction of, their Personal Information.

Changing or deleting the information

To provide you with the best possible service, it is important that the information we hold about you is accurate. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Information is accurate, complete and up-to-date at the time of collecting, using or disclosing the information.

If you believe that any information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date, you should notify us. We will do our best to correct it or delete it, unless we need to keep if for legal reasons.

Security

The Company endeavours to take all reasonable steps to keep your Personal Information secure. We store this information on secure servers that are protected in access-controlled facilities. Once it is stored on our servers, only authorised users can access your Personal Information, and access is only for approved purposes.

The Company is not responsible for any third-party access to your Personal Information as a result of:

  • interception while it is in transit over the internet;
  • spyware or viruses on the device (such as a computer or phone) from which you access the Site, nor
  • as a result of your failure to adequately protect your membership user name or password;

nor for any losses, expenses, damages and costs, including legal fees, resulting from such access.

Providing information on other Sites

The Site links to some Third Party Sites. Sometimes other sites link back to the Site. These linked sites are not under our control, so we are not responsible for the conduct of any third parties. Before you enter information on to those sites, you must consider whether you accept their privacy policy and Terms and Conditions of use.

What to do if you have a problem, question or complaint

If you have any further queries relating to our Privacy Policy, please contact the Company at contact@profilr.com.au. If the Company becomes aware of any ongoing concerns or problems with customer information, we will take these issues seriously and work to address these concerns.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

From time to time, our policies will be reviewed and may be revised. The Company reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time and notify you by posting an updated version of the Policy on our Site. Before providing us with Personal Information, please check this Policy on the Site for any changes.

This Privacy Policy was last updated in June 2014.
