This Privacy Policy applies to your use of the website operated under the domain name Postedia.com (the “POSTEDIA Website”, “POSTEDIA”) and mobile apps, software solutions, platforms and applications and other services provided to users, entities and businesses.

Where this Privacy Policy refers to your “personal information”, it means information about you (as an individual) from which your identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained. Your name and e-mail address are examples of personal information.

Your privacy is very important to us.

We will not collect personal information unless the information is necessary for one or more of our functions or activities.
We will collect personal information only by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way.
When Personal information is collected by us we will specify what it will be used for.
Other purposes of collection include:

- attend to day to day administrative matters;
- inform you about progress in this site or the related business and other activities/events;
- ensuring that you receive appropriate assistance in the event of an emergency; and
- To comply with legislative reporting requirements.

The information collected may be disclosed to the following types of organisations:
- appropriate Government departments, to help you or your business, as found suitable by POSTEDIA or as required by law;
- external organisations such as professional bodies, hospitals or government agencies, as required by law;

INFORMATION COLLECTED
You can visit the POSTEDIA Website and find out about our products and services without giving us any information about yourself. We may record certain non-personal information, such as your server address, domain name, the date and time of your visit and any pages viewed. Such information will only be used for statistical and website administration purposes. To maintain visitor anonymity, we will not associate that information with records containing personal information unless you have consented for us to do so.

We use a third party analytics provider, Google analytics, which might collect information for the purpose of statistical analysis, and such providers have their own privacy policy. Please refer to their website for up-to-date information on their privacy policy.

We might collect your contact details through tools, services, platforms and products provided to shops and businesses that use or partner with our platforms, apps websites and services. We might provide such details to the shops and busnisses that collected those details on our behalf; also we might provide the facility for such shops/businesses to contact you using those contact details for promoting their business. We might also use such information to send you information and promotional material related to POSTEDIA products and services.

When you register to use POSTEDIA as a business owner, we require your name, phone number, e-mail address, mailing address, shop name, shop address, shop owner name and contact details. We will also record any changes you make to this information in the Change Profile section of the POSTEDIA Website. We require this information in order to verify your identity and to contact you and to provide our services to you. Upon successful registration and authorization, we will provide you with a user-code and password to use POSTEDIA services.

The POSTEDIA Website may contain links to web sites operated by third parties and other websites may contain links to the POSTEDIA Website (“Linked Websites”). If the operators of those Linked Websites collect information about you, we may have access to that information as part of our arrangements with those third parties. Linked Websites should contain their own privacy statements and the operators of Linked Websites are responsible for informing you about their own privacy practices.

We may also collect personal information from you if you knowingly provide it to us, for example by sending us an e-mail or providing feedback.

USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We will not use or disclose (share, sell or divulge) any of your personal information to third parties unless we have informed you, or if it is part of your agreement with us, or if it is for you to login to one of POSTEDIA owned company websites, or have been authorised by you, or are required or authorised to do so by law.

In order to provide our services or to assess your application, we may need to provide personal information to third parties and they may need to provide personal information about you to us. Purposes for which we may exchange personal information with third parties include verifying your identity, to process a transaction, to register in third party sites or apps to provide the services.

We may also use your personal information:
- for purposes related to our research, planning, product development, security, testing and risk management;
- for purposes connected with the operation, administration, development or enhancement of the our services and the POSTEDIA Website; and
- where we suspect that fraud or unlawful activity has been, is being or may be engaged in.
We may provide personal information about you to our service providers who assist us in providing our services and the POSTEDIA Website. We will only disclose your personal information to those third party service providers on a confidential basis so that the service provider can effectively provide those services.

Some tools and services might require shipping some equipment, tools, printed materials etc. to you. If you order a shipment through the POSTEDIA Shipping Service, we will provide your personal information by email or other means to the organisation (e.g. DHL) providing the shipping service (as noted in the relevant section of the POSTEDIA Website). That organisation – which may handle your personal information outside Australia – is responsible for its own privacy practices and you should inform yourself of that organisation’s applicable privacy policies. In such instances, when processing credit card transactions to provide such deliveries or other services, we will utilise systems that assist in minimising the risk of credit card fraud. Personal information that we collect about you, including your credit card details, demographic information, such as your address and date of birth, and information about the purchases you have conducted through this website, is required to provide a basis for credit card fraud risk analysis. If you consent to this Privacy Policy, we will transfer the personal information that you have provided to us to third parties in countries outside Australia for the purposes of processing that information to minimise the risk of credit card fraud. The personal information, which is transferred for that purpose, will be stored in that third party’s database for use in credit card fraud risk analysis.
If you do not provide us with:
- your personal information, and
- your consent to this Privacy Policy;
then we will not be able to process your registration

When you participate in a POSTEDIA transaction, information about you and the transaction will be available to the other party to the transaction. This information will include your name, e-mail address, business name and Business Number if a business, telephone number, mailing address and shipping address. You and other users must maintain the confidentiality of each other’s personal information.

Although such situations are rare, you should be aware that we may disclose your personal information to third parties in any of the following circumstances:
- where an investigation of fraud or unlawful activity has been or is being conducted by us and the information is disclosed to relevant persons or authorities; or
- where the disclosure is required or authorised by law; or
- where we believe that the disclosure is reasonably necessary to assist a law enforcement agency or an agency responsible for national security in the performance of its functions; or
- for the preparation for or the conduct of legal proceedings or for the implementation of the orders of a court or tribunal.
- In the event that a third party acquires the business assets of POSTEDIA , that third party may wish to acquire customer information. If this happens, we will take reasonable steps to notify you of any personal information which we propose to transfer and to provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of having your personal information transferred.

We use and disclose aggregated non-personally identifying information as part of our process of constantly improving our services.
