The Personal Information We Collect About You

The information we may collect when you interact with us, our website, or our service includes:

  • Your name
  • Your contact information, including your email address or phone number
  • Non-sensitive employment details, including job title, team/department name, etc.
  • Your skills and competencies
  • Other information optionally provided by you directly in completing surveys
  • Details of your interactions with us
  • Computer or network information

We collect your personal information in order to:

  • provide you access to our services and tools
  • respond your queries or requests

In providing our services to you we may collect personal information about you either directly from you, or this may be supplied by your organisation or other parties, and we may generate personal information about you when we carry out our services.

Providing your information to us is optional. If you wish to opt-out of your organisation providing us your details, please contact your organisation’s privacy officer. If you choose not to provide your name and email address, we may be unable to provide you access to our services and tools.

We will only use and share personal information where necessary to carry out the functions for which we collected it, or if required by law.

You have the right to ask for a copy of any personal information we hold about you, and to ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong. If you’d like to ask for a copy of your information, or to have it corrected, please contact us via the details below.

Data Storage and Controls

We store all our data (including your personal information) using Microsoft Office 365 solutions and use Microsoft Office365 applications. We protect our data with all reasonable technical and process controls, and we keep your information safe by only storing and transmitting data in an encrypted form and only allowing approved staff to access it.

In addition to our staff, we may share this information with carefully selected third-parties in order to provide you access to services and tools provided by those third-parties, or through our normal usage of these services.

Data Breach

In the event of a breach of our systems, or a third party provider used by us, resulting in potential or actual unauthorised access to or disclosure of your personal information, we will respond as quickly as possible to perform the following steps:

  1. Contain the breach and assess the situation.
  2. Evaluate the risks, including the nature of the personal information and the nature of the breach.
  3. Notify you as soon as reasonably possible if we believe personal information has been compromised.
    • Where we are providing services to you on behalf of your organisation (typically your employer, our client), we will normally coordinate notifications to you via them.
    • Where necessary or required by law we will notify relevant third parties such the Privacy Commissioner or law enforcement authorities.
  4. Take appropriate action to prevent further breaches.

Where our assessment of the breach requires the involvement of law enforcement authorities (e.g. in the event of suspected theft or other criminal activity in connection with the breach) we will cooperate with their lawful instructions to ensure their investigation is not compromised.
