“Audacix” (the “Company”, “we” or “us”) wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose information from and about you. We do this because your privacy is important to us and protect your private information as we protect ours.

It is Audacix's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. Accordingly, we have developed this privacy policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose and otherwise make use of personal information. We have outlined our privacy policy below.

This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with information collected through all our services including websites, mobile sites, applications (“apps”), and widgets, competitions and customer surveys (collectively, the “Company Services”). By using Company Services, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

What information do we collect?

We collect the personal information that is needed to provide Company Services, for our business operations and to give you a more personalised and seamless experience when interacting with us. If you choose not to provide certain personal information to us, we may not be able to provide you with the services you require. The following are the main types of personal information collected by us, along with the purposes we collect that information:
  • Registration Information: is the information you provide to the Company in the course of registering for or acquiring a Company Service, for example, to create an account to present or attend a presentation, post comments, or enter a survey or a competition. Registration Information may include, for example, name, delivery or postal address, email address, gender and birthday. It may also include additional information which you provide to us in the course of our interactions.
  • Business Information: consists of documents that you upload to the Company or that which we may upload on your behalf. This may include text, videos, pictures, and another other content that can be embedded within the presentation. We will securely store these presentations and they will remain the property of the original author. We may convert the uploaded information into other formats to enable Company Services and the converted formats remain the property of the Company.
  • Interaction Information: consists of content or interaction that you post to the Company Services during the use of Company Services and the information about you that accompanies those posts or content, which may include a name, user name, notes, comments, likes, status, profile information and picture(s).
  • Information from third party social media: If you access or log-in to a Company Service through a third party social media service or connect a Company Service to a third party social media service, the information we collect may also include your user ID and / or user name associated with that social media service, any information or content you have permitted the third party social media service to share with us, such as your profile picture, email address, followers or friends lists, and any information you have disclosed in connection with that social media service.

    We do not collect your passwords other than in relation to our own services.

    When you access the Company Services through third party social media services or when you connect a Company Service to third party social media services, you are authorizing the Company to collect, store use and disclose such information and content in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
  • Activity Information: this includes cookies and other technologies. When you access and interact with the Company Services, we may collect certain information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the Company Services, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information.

    If you access the Company Services from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device, geolocation data, or other transactional information from that device. Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies and local storage, pixel beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies) are comprised of small bits of data or code that often include a de-identified or anonymous unique identifier.

    Websites, apps and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so that such websites, apps and other services can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information such as pages you have visited, content you have viewed, and interactions you have done in relation to your usage of the Company Services and other websites you have visited.

    Third parties that support the Company Services by providing services, such as allowing you to share content or tracking aggregate Company Services usage statistics (such as Google Analytics), may also use these technologies to collect similar information. The Company does not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of those third parties using such technologies. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please note that by blocking any or all cookies you may not have access to certain features, content or personalisation available through the Company Services.
  • Information in relation to other persons who deal with us: When you apply for a job or contract with us we may collect certain information from you or from any recruitment consultant, your previous employers and others who may be able to provide information to assist us in deciding whether or not to make you an offer of employment or engage you under a contract. This Privacy Policy does not apply to acts and practices in relation to employee records of our current and former employees.

    Generally, if appropriate, we will state why we are collecting personal information when we collect it and how we plan to use it, or these things will be obvious when we collect the information.

How do we use the information we collect?

We use the information we collect to give you a more personalised, relevant and seamless service and user experience when you interact with us or use Company Services. When you are not identifiable in relation to the information collected from or about you, we may use that information for any purpose or share it with third parties. We may also de-identify the information we collect about you so that we can use and disclose it without using or revealing any personal information about you.

We use the information we collect from and about you for these additional purposes:
  • To provide Company Services: we will use your information to provide Company Services to you, to fulfill administrative functions associated with these services (for example billing, credit and account management), to enter into contracts with you or third parties and for marketing and client relationship purposes. We may also use your information to improve Company Services including through research and data analysis by us and our service providers. We may use and disclose your personal information in other ways expressly disclosed at the point of collection.
  • To enable us and our partners in providing and managing Company Services: we may make your information available to certain third party service providers, such as providers of data cloud services (AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, etc), website hosting service providers, and payment (Stripe) and debt collection services, who we use to manage or provide the Company Services. These third parties, and their services, may be located in a range of different countries including Australia, the United Kingdom, United States of America, India and Singapore. The Company requires these service providers to comply with relevant privacy laws and not to use personal information that we collect for ANY purpose other than the SPECIFIC service they are providing to you and/or the Company.
  • To allow social sharing functionality: if you log in with or connect a social media service account with Company Services, we may share your user name, picture, tweets and likes, as well as your activities and comments with other Company Services users and with your friends associated with your social media service. We may also share the same information with the social media service provider. By logging in with or connecting your Company Services account with a social media service, you are authorising us to share information we collect from and about you with the social media service provider, other users and your friends and you understand that the social media service’s use of the shared information will be governed by the social media service’s privacy policy. If you do not want your personal information shared in this way, please do not connect your social media service account with your Company Services account and do not participate in social sharing on Company Services.
  • To contact you: we may periodically send promotional materials or notifications which it believes might be of interest to you. Promotional materials may include invitations to participate in various activities (such as customer surveys), special offers or information about new products and services that we offer.
  • To share with business partners: we will only do this where you have expressly consented to this. We may share your information with business partners to permit them to send you marketing communications consistent with your choices.
  • To protect the rights of Company and others: there may be instances when the Company may disclose your information, including situations where the Company has a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to: (i) protect, enforce, or defend the legal rights, privacy, safety, or property of the Company, our related companies or their employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements and our terms of use); (ii) protect the safety, privacy, and security of users of the Company Services or members of the public; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; (iv) comply with the law or legal process in any country; or (v) respond to requests from public and government authorities.
  • To complete a merger or sale of assets. If the Company sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, the Company may transfer or disclose your information to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction and as part of any due diligence processes which take place in contemplation of a potential transaction.

How do we protect your information?

We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained. We use commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard information in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. However, no one can guarantee the complete safety of your information.

How can you opt out?

You can block or delete cookies through your browser settings but be aware that if you do this you may not be able to continue to receive some Company Services. In addition, this may not be sufficient to block or opt-out of all activities which track the usage of a device or which deliver targeted content.

If you want to stop receiving marketing materials follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email or text message.

If you have linked any of your social media accounts to your account for any Company Services, you can cancel that link by changing your account settings.

If you need any assistance with changing your account settings, or wish to remove your account completely, please email us at [email protected].

Other important information

  • Modification of the Privacy Police: we may modify this Privacy Policy at any time. Please check the Last Updated date at the end of this Privacy Policy to see when this Privacy Policy was last revised. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective when we post the revised Privacy Policy on the Company Services. If the changes affect any agreement between us, you will be entitled to terminate our agreement if those changes are not acceptable to you, on reasonable grounds.
  • Linked Services: our Company Services may also be linked to sites operated by unaffiliated companies, and may offer content, functionality, games, newsletters, competitions or applications or serve advertisements developed and maintained by unaffiliated companies. The Company is not responsible for the privacy practices of unaffiliated companies, and once you leave the Company Services you should check the applicable privacy policy of the other service.
  • Collection of Personal Financial Information by a Payment Service: in some cases, we may use an unaffiliated payment service to allow you to purchase a product or make payments (“Payment Service”). If you wish to purchase a product or make a payment using a Payment Service, you will be directed to a Payment Service webpage. Any information that you provide to a Payment Service will be subject to the applicable Payment Service’s privacy policy, rather than this Privacy Policy. We have no control over, and are not responsible for, any Payment Service’s use of information collected through any Payment Service.
  • Data Retention: we will retain your information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or allowed by law.
  • Account cancellation: remember that even after you cancel your account, copies of some information from your account may remain viewable in some circumstances where, for example, you have shared information with social media or other services. Because of the nature of caching technology, your account may not be instantly inaccessible to others. We may also retain backup information related to your account on our servers for some time after cancellation for fraud detection or to comply with applicable law or our internal security or other policies. We do not always completely remove or delete all of your information for a number of reasons including due to technical and systems constraints, contractual, financial or legal requirements.
  • Sensitive Information: we ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive personal or corporate information (such as information related to racial or ethnic origin, religion or other beliefs, health, criminal background, trade union membership, or trade secrets) on or through the Company Services or otherwise. If, contrary to this request, you do provide any sensitive information, in doing so you consent to us collecting and handling that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
