  1. Storage and processing by third parties

Data that We collect about you may be stored or otherwise processed by third party services with data centres based outside the EU, such as Google Analytics, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Apple, etc and online relationship management tools. We consider that the collection and such processing of this information is necessary to pursue Our legitimate interests in a way that might reasonably be expected (e.g., to analyse how Our clients use Our Products/Services, develop Our Products/Services and grow Our business) and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests. The Company requires that all third parties that act as “data processors” for Us provide sufficient guarantees and implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure your data, only process personal data for specified purposes and have committed themselves to confidentiality.

  1. Storage and security of your personal information

We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of the information that you provide Us and We will take all reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from unauthorised use or alteration. In Our business, personal information may be stored both electronically (on Our computer systems and with Our website hosting provider) and in hard-copy form. Firewalls, anti-virus software and email filters, as well as passwords, protect all of Our electronic information. Likewise, We take all reasonable measures to ensure the security of hard-copy information.

  1. Duration of retention of your data

We will only keep your data for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, subject to satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. At the end of any retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised (for example, by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning). In some circumstances, you can ask Us to delete your data.

  1. Access to your personal information

In most cases, you may have access to personal information that We hold about you. We will handle requests for access to your personal information in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles. All requests for access to your personal information must be directed to Our Privacy Officer by email using the email address provided above. We will deal with all requests for access to personal information as quickly as possible. Requests for a large amount of information, or information that is not currently in use, may require further time before a response can be given. We may charge you a fee for access if a cost is incurred by Us in order to retrieve your information, but in no case will We charge you a fee for your application for access. In some cases, We may refuse to give you access to personal information that We hold about you. This may include circumstances where giving you access would:

  1. be unlawful (eg, where a record that contains personal information about you is subject to a claim for legal professional privilege by one of Our contractual counterparties);
  2. have an unreasonable impact on another person’s privacy; or
  3. prejudice an investigation of unlawful activity.

We may also refuse access where the personal information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings, and the information would not be accessible by the process of discovery in those proceedings or if the personal information was provided to Us indirectly by another company who uses Our site, and We cannot access that personal Information. If We refuse to give you access, We will provide you with reasons for Our refusal.

  1. Correcting your personal information

We will amend any personal information about you that is held by Us and that is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date if you request Us to do so. If We disagree with your view about the accuracy, completeness or currency of a record of your personal information that is held by us, and you ask Us to associate with that record a statement that you have a contrary view, We will take reasonable steps to do so.

  1. Third party websites

You may click-through to third party websites from this site, in Ih case We recommend that you refer to the privacy statement of the third party websites that you visit. This Privacy Policy applies to this site only and the Company assumes no responsibility for the content of, or any impact from any third party websites. .   If however as a result of using a third party’s service in connection with the delivery of automated legal forms that We provide to that third party, your personal information is stored on Our site, you have a right to ask Us to amend or delete that information. We agree to reasonably comply with such request, providing that personal information is able to be amended or deleted, and is not encrypted or embedded within documents or forms that are controlled by the third party user of the site.   (Where personal information is not able to be amended or deleted by Us, you must contact the third party user and make the request).

  1. Credit card payment processing by Stripe

All Our transactions are processed securely by Stripe. The payment processing function is not part of this site. We are not privy to any of the bank account, credit card or other personal information that you may provide to Stripe, other than your name, billing address and email address.

  1. GDPR

The Company welcomes the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) of the European Union (“EU”) as an important step forward in streamlining data protection globally. We comply with the data handling regime laid out in the GDPR in respect of any personal information of data subjects in the EU that We may obtain.

  1. GDPR rights


  1. The requirements of the GDPR are broadly similar to those set out in the Privacy Act and include the following rights:
    1. You are entitled to request details of the information that We hold about you and how We process it. For EU residents, We will provide this information for no fee;
    2. You may also have a right to:
      1. have that information rectified or deleted;
      2. restrict Our processing of that information;
      3. stop unauthorised transfers of your personal information to a third party;
      4. in some circumstances, have that information transferred to another organisation; and
      5. lodge a complaint in relation to Our processing of your personal information with a local supervisory authority; and
    3. Where We rely upon your consent as Our legal basis for collecting and processing your data, you may withdraw that consent at any time.
  2. If you object to the processing of your personal information, or if you have provided your consent to processing and you later choose to withdraw it, We will respect that choice in accordance with Our legal obligations. However, please be aware that:
    1. Such objection or withdrawal of consent could mean that We are unable to provide Our Products/Services to you, and could unduly prevent Us from legitimately providing Our Products/Services to other clients subject to appropriate confidentiality protections; and
    2. Even after you have chosen to withdraw your consent, We may be able to continue to keep and process your personal information to the extent required or otherwise permitted by law, in particular:
      1. to pursue Our legitimate interests in a way that might reasonably be expected as part of running Our business and which does not materially impact on your rights, freedoms or interests; and
